In fact you could have returned that way!

I guess another reason to convince your wife!
So who is next bachelor in your line getting married at Trichur?

Bangalore - wayanad - calicut , well this is the route that i have been travelling for the past 4 years. Almost once in every month .
And Wayanad - Calicut , is the route that I have been travelling since my childhood . atleast once in two months , but even now whenever we climb up the ghats and enter the waynad plateau , the chilled breeze and the greenery , its just mindblowing . I dont think I would ever get bored driving through these roads .

Hey, Nice photographs.

I was also in Wayanad last weekend and I think we were at the Pookote Lake at the same time. I had seen this red U-VA and the black OHC. We were in black Ritz.

Oh... did you take the same route as me? I think I was following a Black Ritz on and off from Gundlupet. It was a nice weekend to be out there - especially the weather
