A long 13 hours drive from Mumbai to Hampi was a very comfortable one. We had our first halt at Pune where we refilled the gas and headed towards Hampi. We stopped at Indapur and had our breakfast. The typical Maharashtrian style misal pav that was as cheap as Rs80 inclusive of everything. We started our journey on the beautiful national Highway and Reached solapur by noon. Had our lunch there, refreshed a bit, and again started our long journey to our final destination.
We reached Hampi at around 7pm, but as nothing was planned, we struggled a bit for the hotel rooms. Nevertheless we got a beautiful hotel room with car parking. Also, the staff were helpful enough to guide us about how to plan the next day's schedule.
