Hey, thanks everyone!

It was nice meeting you all. Luckily we were able to find table inside the food court. The only downside I found was that the place was noisy.

BTW, when is our next meet?

Thanks,
Jose.

If possible, please plan something well in advance, preferably during other holidays so that those employed can be benefited with lesser leaves.
Good, I found you a travel-enthusiast.
If we think to travel 'after setting and finishing all other serious work', he will never travel. Unfortunately most are in this category.

Destination: As said my dream is to Utharkhand. It is such a state to see. An Europe in winter......

Uttarkhand is a great place.

How many days trip are you planning? Any tentative dates?
I suggest you to start a new thread so that we can get lot of information on road/route/accommodation/places of interest etc etc to fine tune the trip.

Can we hire a big vehicle say Innova/Xylo so that can sit together in single vehicle.
But on Driver-less rental, driver is costly and nuisance.

But no 'Rent-a-car'. They charge normal Rs. 15 km after 200 kms per day ! too costly for covering about 8000 kms.

Will you try ?

Sorry I couldn't make it guys, looks like I missed a good meet.

No meets possible until the Onam vacations get over, as my dad's coming over from Bahrain and we have a few trips planned. Who knows, I might even write my first travelogue on TBHP!!

But during the next meet, let's definitely arrange a photoshoot, rains or not.
