As always, what a wonderful drive! Thank you Chief for the experience. Driving through the twisties, the wonderful resort, the lip-smacking Mangalore food, the beaches, the temples and the conversations that ran till late night, and meeting @Samurai and @samaspire, this is one drive that will remain in my memories forever.

A few pictures that I managed to capture.

The view from the balcony.

Looks like a great meet; thanks for sharing pictures!

Having studied in Manipal; it is always lovely to see Hanging bridge, Delta beach, Kapu lighthouse! I'm happy these places haven't become insanely commercialized as Malpe has.

ThankQ Ganesh and Raj

Background trivia:
quadrimester (QM)

Given the enthusiastic response to QM2 (Kolli Hills), did a “Fadnavis” and booked the entire resort .
Nevertheless, staunch support ensured a memorable drive as the takeaway .

Half-iron-man, graaja proved his mettle, joining the drive all the way from Coimbatore.
Samurai and samaspire added local flavor.

Be that as it may, eventually Kodi Bengre, proved to be a fitting finale to the QM3 of 2019.

The drive report, in pictures:

Day 2 was DIY.

Free and easy, some folks chose the morning to visit the "hanging bridge" and St Mary's island, pictures posted earlier.

The devout went temple hopping to Udupi and Kollur.

The laid back, chose to chill out in the sylvan surround of the resort.

Thanks for the wonderful pictures graaja, KRRaj and RSUDARSANAN. Looks like you all had a great time in Udupi. Thanks to you all, I discovered a new place I did not know existed in my own backyard. I was also blessed to be the presence of Swami Ketoananda and his motley group of converts.

Thank you for the dinner and more so for the great conversations we had. Never realised when 7:30 turned to 11:30.

Until next time, ciao.
