It was my first trip with bae after tying the knot with him, we were very eager to spend a holiday and it took us a while to get time from the daily routine, but yes, was worth the wait.
I and my husband being the travel lovers we are, we planned to go on a long road trip. A 2900 km long stretch covering lush green hills spread over the south of India. We wanted to stick to nature rich places hence the route being Hyderabad- Bengaluru- Munnar- Ooty- Coorg- Chikmagalur- Hyderabad. It was a 6 day trip planned suddenly, but we knew what'd be the places we love to spend some time at and were clear where to go.
We started from home somewhere around 5:00 am towards Bengaluru to stay by the night and head towards Munnar the next day, Hyd- Bnglr being a 575 km drive.
Food: We had our breakfast around 7:30 am at a road side tiffin shop and lunch in a dhaba. Normally I find road side small shops ( make sure the surroundings are clean and the shop is maintaining minimum hygiene measures) providing equally tasty and hygienic breakfast comparing to the restaurants and dhabas along Hyderabad and the surrounding highways.
Miss out: We wanted to visit Gandikota before reaching Bengaluru which is in Andhra Pradesh, but could not pull it off as changing the route would leave us tiring for the next day, hence we stopped at Nandi Hills.
