Good one McStumpy.. Loved the writing... the small joys of visting exotic places with yout loved one.. in a car you love..

Well these are the moments you'd cherish. These are the moments which would help you to go forward when you are in some far corner of the world.

Kudos once again mate...

It was really a wonderful day. My favorite part was the drive. I love high speeds and the drive made me feel as if I was in a video game.

Weird thing is, it took us as much time to reach Sri Rangapatnam from Kengeri (100kms) as much as it took for us to reach from R.T.Nagar to Nice Road (30kms), so dis-organized is our traffic in the city.

Like Akroy was mentioning the other day the Karnataka Tourism Dept indeed has done a wonderful job. Nice looking, properly places boards everywhere. One doesn't have to search for directions like we did when we went to Goa or Munnar.

I was to sing the female's part and she the guys. I sing horribly, even more so when I am trying to sound like a lady . But it was fun nonetheless.
That was super fun.

I had never been to a bird sanctuary before this. But the crocodile thing was quite scary. Really love some of the birds that we got to see there. Trying to imagine how beautiful it will be during peak season time.

We try to make each 11th special (than the rest of the days). Long drives, candle light dinners, shopping, pubbing, at times just sit at home and cook some of our favourite dishes.
Another secret, Stumpy is a good cook too. He makes fried rice, palak paneer, sandwiches, kababs better than anyone else I have seen.

And he is a real darling, never complaints to drive out so far anytime I ask him.

Now some pics from my end that he will not post by himself .

The "D" look.

The cute look.

He runs inside to relieve himself.

He doesn't know its pay & use and that his wallet is with me .

Finally decides to run away without paying (kidding). Felt bad seeing him walk back all the way to pay that guy.

He is really peering at the GV as if he is going to plonk down money for it right then and there.

So the what was the reaction from BIG brother on seeing his sibling?

So should the topic be changed to McTravel by McCoupe? Simple amazing. Keep it up. I am looking forward to next 11th. 31st "shagun" anniv exploits.

McLaren(1885)(0111) - Super travelouge. Amazing pictures too. Man that croc looks killer. I am always amazed by crocs, they are by far the ugliest reptiles, but what amazes me is their sheer size & strength.

@ mc0111 - Nice captions. Loved the big brother one. cheers:

God Bless!!
