Each country has its pros and cons. Nothing to beat India.

TN, Karnataka, Kerala, AP, Maharastra, Goa, UP & Delhi

2. Among the states visited, how many have you driven on.

Kerala women are God's gift to humanity and their backwaters. Goa is man's gift to humanity. If you want to feel like you are abroad, go to Goa during the tourist season.

Tough call, TN & Karnataka. Love the Old Madras route. Hosur to Krishnagiri stretch on the GQ.

Since specific areas of authority are constitutionally assigned to the the UAE Federal Government, while other powers are reserved for the 7 member emirates, I believed the individual emirates could be called countries. I stand corrected. Thank you Steeroid.
