Your European drives were for holiday or do you stay in Europe? The reason I ask because I'd love to get more details as to how you plan such European road trips.

My longest drive was in Jan'14, did the Blr-Mum route solo in my SX4.
Started at 5:30am from Blr and reached Andheri(E)-Mum at 8pm in the evening(1009Kms- 14hr:30min drive inclusive of 2 short breaks for tea and a lunch stop at Kolhapur).
Being a Sunday, encountered a lot of traffic in the afternoon on the Satara- Pune stretch. This coupled with the 2 lane roads on this section tested my patience .
Paid toll worth 1200/-, must mention the excellent roads in Karnataka.

Mod Note : Team-BHP strongly discourages unsafe driving practices that put yourself and other road users at risk. Please do NOT post about illegally high speeds on public roads.

I'm not saying longest drive in terms of length. But the most tiring and daunting driving experience I've had is my drive from Bangalore to Pondicherry and the return journey on the same night with just an hour or two spent at the temple. Seemed like a lifetime.

Satya,
I did quite recently with 2 others. We covered 1700km in 3 days. Bangalore-->wayanad-->allepy-->munnar-->madhurai-->bangalore via NH4 (dindigul , salem route) . It was a very unplanned travell and stays were decided on the spot. What I enjoyed was the mix of curvy ghat sections and straight NH4 highways. However in kerela its bit difficult to get highway experience as the roads pass through cities and villages.
