Default Hello Team-BHP!

Hi guys,

I'm Pritam - almost 37 years old as I write this. I was born and brought up in Bangalore. I studied and worked in the US for a while, then I quit my job to travel. I backpacked and hiked across Europe and South America.

Then, I came back to India and travelled by motorcycle (a rock solid Thunderbird 350) for two years.

Now, me and my partner bought a 2013/14 Renault Duster 1.5 Diesel, and we are planning to take off across India in it.

Looking forward to sharing and learning from all you amazing guys here!

-Pritam

Welcome to the Forum Mr. Pritam.

From your intro I feel like you will be posting some interesting travelogues and pictures since you travel a lot. Please do post of your previous journeys too

When I read about the Duster and Across India journey, this song from the movie '96' came into my mind, where the lead character takes off across India. Best of luck, drive safe and do post pictures.

Wow!

These stories will make for interesting reads & I would look forward to it.

The current Covid situation is sad for travelers, you never know where you would be forced to quarantine, hope the situation improves.

All the best for your travel plans, please keep up this spirit .

Thank you all! We plan to leave on Apr 14... Have to deal with all the Covid Restrictions -- get tested many times, get quarantined somewhere else, in addition to an actually dangerous disease It took many months to decide we can't wait longer. We plan take it as it comes

I will post for help soon, and travelogues of course!
