The End Game of dodging the bandhs and reaching Hyderabad within scheduled time was no less in the thrill quotient than the Anand-Topalov endgames seen this week. Bravo!

That was an enjoyable read Ravvs. May be Arun & Nazim can do honours with the pictures here.

P.S: Are you putting up your Beach Holiday Travelogue?

The cameras were packed neatly in the bag and the only pictures we clicked during the return journey were at Vijayawada after dinner.

Aah, but the FZ escaped to catch a few pics ......

Here we go:

This thing appeared in front of us making us wonder if we had travelled back in time to some 1950s airfield.

Nice to be back, if only to stare at the ceiling!

Hi Ravindra,

All you 3 Hydeez are looking dashing in those Team BHP T - Shirts.

I heard that these T - Shirts are made with an approval from GTO, is that true?? Please let us know where we can purchase them.

Regards,

Vikram

That was a great final write up to a fantastic travelogue and as you rightly said a trip of the lifetime.

Wish such a trip can be repeated in future but, not in 15 days but, it needs a whole month for it. I know for sure i will be sacked if i ask for a month's leave so for me it continues to be a dream to do this kind of a trip

Btw, the last picture with a white tbhp tshirt flanked with 2 black ones look cool and an apt sign-off to this momentous travelogue.

Great Job to all of you

The T-Shirts are made to order based on the number of confirmations received. They are not for sale anywhere!
You will have to closely follow the Hyderabad Meet threads to know when the next edition will be done!

I got one left from last time around. If your size is 39/40, it may just fit you.

Great trip guys you have made me nostalgic driving from Shillong to Hyderabad almost with a short halt.I did the same while I was getting back from Gangtok I started around 4.00pm and stopped for dinner at Silguri for one hour then with power naps around Siuri in the morning around 5-6am.Then traversed through Bankura-Bishnupur-Kharagpur reached Sun temple Konark in the evening 5.30pm.

Thank You for the kind words! We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing this travelogue on T-BHP!

I just went through the complete 20 pages again!
And it's already 4:10 AM and tomorrow is not a holiday!
