“Travel”, they say, “as you will remember the roads as memories you’ll always cherish”, and that was exactly what I was looking for when my parents dropped in Bangalore to stay with me for a couple of weeks. Love for exploring new places has come in me from my parents I think, the moment I proposed them a road trip to Bangalore from Mysore they quickly agreed. I knew I had to be a little extra cautious because I was travelling with two old people, I had many things to take care of like wholesome food, clean washrooms and comfort. But this my friends, was one of the most beautiful journey I’ve had in my short travelling life, I suggest you all to take out sometime to travel with your parents.
Mysore or Mysuru, known for its royal palace, is a city in southwestern Karnataka state in India. The city is known for its rich culture. The city is famous for its gardens & palaces, and haven for women looking for silk sarees. Mysore best places to visit if you are a fan of olden day grand monument and rich Indian culture and tradition. It is also one of the must visit cities in India as per various travel sites, and probably the best weekend gateways from Bangalore. Due to its close proximity to Bangalore (around 150 KM), you can see many bikers enroute to Mysore over the weekends.

So, for this trip I had pre-booked a cab for 2 days. Prices for these cab services are very convenient and transparent. They generally charge price/Km and this is common among all cab drivers in Bangalore. I’ve given details of my cab driver with expenses at the end of the blog, those you want to travel with a fun and informative drive can dial him.
