Finally managed to transfer the images from my Camera, albeit much later than what I had initially promised. Nevertheless a selection of images. Since I took snaps only when I was not driving which was very less, I have only a few snaps of the journey.

The Hotel where we had lunch on the way back - between Haveri and Hubli, excellent food, very clean toilets and above all super service from the staff.

My White Lightning, which gave me no trouble what so ever all the way, kept up with the bad roads, spirited driving while coming back, the traffic jams in Bangalore & everything else.

Had a training program in Mahabaleshwar, so could catch very little of sight seeing, hence very little pics of Mahaby.
