The American golfer Jimmy Walker once said, “I have a lot of stories to tell because I’ve been down a lot of roads people haven't been." I’ve read a lot of stuff but I doubt if there are any other words that come closer than this to describe my life. There is something about the roads which is very hard to put into words. Sure, train journeys have a character and flights offer the comfort and convenience but it is only once you’re on the road that you really live your journey.
From the not so well-maintained highways in certain parts of the country to the picturesque ones, I’ve had several adventures with roads in the country but there’s a romance of sorts that just refuses to die down.
Being on the road has always been about exploring food, cultures and practices on-the-go and the one route that has been my eternal favourite is the NH 22 which connects Delhi to Shimla. The legendary dhabas throughout the route ensure that there is never a dull moment on this lovely drive. So if you’re planning to drive down to Shimla, here’s a small list of my personal favourites that I guarantee, will leave you asking for more!
