The lessons that you have put down were very useful to me. Especially points 6, 8 and 10.

Nice travelogue too!!

Thanks Proxima.
One more lesson I forgot to mention:-
  • Do not bank on credit cards for buying fuel on highways. Both the Reliance bunks I visited did not accept credit cards. Only city bunks may accept cards

Vnabhi, that was a very nice detailed report of your mumbai trip. Like everyone said, the lessons learnt was unique and gave a good insight about what to and what not to do.

vnabhi, that was a great travelogue.
The FE is really great. I think it's got more to do with your good driving skills than anything else

I guess it is human tendency to relate with ourselves ... my son is 9 months old, you see.

11. Don't just carry a camera, use it (I agree I am guilty).
I am guilty as well. But somehow, I do not feel like stopping the car when it is cruising. How to overcome? In my case, my daughter has recently picked up some photography skills and she handles the camera these days when I am driving.

Thanks sreenidhibr. I too do not feel like stopping my car for pics, so in this trip I gave the camera to my son. Most of the pics were hazy, so I did not post them. I guess he has to give up his driving skills for a while and focus on photography skills
