A Good Vibe leads to a Good Start!-Sneha Marappa Chikmagaluru has always been on the top list of my favorite places with the best of the climate that you can ask for, mountains stretching all around, waterfalls that you can see after every few meters on the road, fog that hugs your body with the chill breeze where goose bumps too would feel good. I would never get bored to visit this place; my friend’s call it as my second home but I call it just as home. I have been going through lot of blogs since many years and this travel blogger Shivya Nath is one of my favorites who had written about how to start solo travelling where she stated to start a solo trip with a known place that you are comfortable with ... read more

I was hoping for a monsoon ride in 2013 but it did not happen due to some reasons, so thought of recompensing it with a drive. It was almost end of monsoon and one of my friend and my colleague (then) Kunche Swamy was okay with the plan as he was not very fond of long rides. None of us had a car, so hired one, and it came on time to pick me up around 10.30 pm. We had one more person with us to fill the seat, Venkat – Swamy’s friend. After picking everyone, we reached Tumkur highway by 12.30, and then stretched to Chcikmagalur by stopping once or twice for tea. While going, Swamy could not hold the very desire to drive a car on a highway, but the driver refused it with ... read more

'Dada,i'm on my way to the bus stand' I woke up with this call from Gaurav,my cousin. On the Previous day, I checked in to a small Hotel in Bangalore and when called up Gaurav and asked him to accompany me for my dream tour to Malnad region, like an offer to play for Mancehester United, he said,'see you tomorrow at the bus stand'. It was a busy monday morning, around 7am,me and Gaurav walked in to the 'Majestic' bus stand in Bangalore. Our first destination was Hassan, a district town,around 200kms away from Bangalore. Buses from Bangalore to Hassan ply in every 10-15 minutes and depending upon the comfort level and your pocket size, one can opt any. We took a KSRTC 'Volvo' which was about to start for Mangalore. When asked whether this bus ... read more

Chikmagalur in all its beauty !! I should say one should visit this place during the monsoons ... The light drizzling and a trek through the Bhadra jungle and Kemmangundi .. What an experience !! I just loved it ... My husband and I were in a plan of visiting Chikmagalur for a long time and it finally took shape in August. And then the rains started .. It was raining heavily throughout Karnataka . We were skeptical about our trip but finally decided to continue with it. Chikmagalur is approx around 250 kms from Bangalore . It falls under the Western Ghats cover called 'Malnad' region in Kannada. We had booked a package tour kind of thing but slightly customised to our needs . Day 1 - On Aug 24th 2010, we started off from ... read more
