Awesome description on the pics. I get nostalgic when I see pictures of Bellary-Hospet stretch. Have lived in Hospet for 17 years and driven on this stretch many times.
Its raining Goa in Team-Bhp. Thanks to this and Sam's travelogue, expect a Horde of T-Bhpians in Goa in the near future.

Btw, did you drive continuosly or took some break inbetween ??
Thanks

No Breaks. Express Trains only stop at destinations

Once my thigh got a sprain due to continuous seating and I had to get down and take a stroll because I could not press the accelerator due to the sprain.

The cruiser from hyderabad (btirthankar), great pics with appropriate tags, though different but definitely absorbing travelogue. Man! you seem to cruise @ the drop of a hat, i remember you doing Hyd-Calcutta-Hyd and now its the west coast.Way to go brother and once again nicely written and collaged.

As usual, I could only admire your courage and energy to travel long distance-that too at night.

Guess you may do well with a cruise control (Not on those roads though).

I suggest it is time to target Kerala as you next destination. Good luck, and keep going

You never know, with Miss Kerala as his wife's friend, he may very soon end up doing that!

Ya we can have a nice Tbhp meet with Miss mallu in Malluland.

BTW Tirthankar, I liked the pic where the girls are dozing in the back seat and you are enjoying your night drive fully without any disturbance.

Remined me of those english movies where the Limo driver keeps on driving and doesnt care what is happening backside (A lot of things happen in Limos in US, I mean official meetings and confs as well )

Loved the "Pride of Hospet" pic.
Believe me, the whole town is littered with roads like this.

Basu, my first question, do you really have a job?

As usual, an amazing pictorial description of your trip. If i recall you had made a trip to Goa in January, how come again so soon?

I concur with everyone here, Miss kerala is quite pretty

Nice trip and a nice travel-cum-picto-logue! If your wife learns to drive I think you will go even further distance!

Ok lets start pooling in money and hire a Volvo B7R. But remember we need to take Uncie's (Vijay Mallya) permission.

Yeah Thanks. I just need smooth and safe roads now. Enough of rock-a-byes!

You got it right. She had learnt driving in an Indica but needs practice and license.
