Tea Gardens @ WayanadThis year when we got list of holidays from our office, I saw second holiday Jan 26 is on a Monday means long weekend. I had to plan something. Didn't want to miss on this. Heard lot about Mangalore though earlier I have been to Turtle Bay (at Trasi, Kundapur) but this time I wanted to go to Mangalore.

During cafeteria chitchat when all the colleagues were discussing about their plans, I also shared my plan to go to Mangalore and few people suggested me not to go because of bad roads especially from Sakleshpur to Mangalore. The day this discussion happened was Thursday Jan 22. I inquired from few more people and thought of taking longer route Bangalore --> Mysore --> Shimoga --> Mangalore. But still most of the people suggested me against this. Finally democracy won and I had to change my plans.

I was checking with other colleagues about their plan, one of the colleague suggested me for Chickmanglur but somehow I was not comfortable going within Karnataka, next best option I thought of was Pondicherry. Pondicherry is a busy tourist attraction and since I had not yet made any bookings I was apprehensive about my plans. Then two of my colleagues suggested for Wayanad. They mentioned that the place where they had made bookings still have few rooms unreserved. Without taking chance I told him that I will come along and they called the home stay people and confirmed the reservation.

Vidhan Soudha, Bangalore

This weekend, I decided to go around Bangalore and few places like a tourist. Though it was not being like true tourist, since I took my own car and didn't go by some tourist bus or KSTDC Bus. By going around in my own car I can make sure that I spend enough time at each spot instead of running from one place to another, just to cover places.

Our plan was to start at 7:00 AM and straight away head towards Mavalli Tiffin Rooms, commonly known as MTR. Have breakfast there, then head towards, Lal Bagh, Bull Temple, Gavi Gangadeshwara Temple, Tipus' palace and then to Bannergatta National Park.

Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.During my trip to Japan, way back in Jan 2005, my friends choose Hakone as my first travel destination. Hakone is very popular among locals and foreign visitors. Hakone is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Famous for hot springs,  natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji. It was awesome experience. My friend Om did all the planning. Since he knew how to speak, read and write Japanese lot of things have become  easier. He is master of the Japanese language.
