An awesome bike trip 13 days 3000kms ...... home state welcomed me with rains and home city with much much more .... was so thrilled .... a trip that took me thru ancient temples dating 1000 of years.... to the great monolithic Nandi ..... buddhist stupas ..... dense jungles to see a peacock dancing impressing his mate ... scaled the hills .... drank the mountain stream .... dark caves where bats reside .... underground shiva temple .... bath at the conjunction of the two rivers .... to some off-roading .... played hide and seek with the rains ... lost track to the vegetation like hansel and gretel..... been chased away by the fog ... to the curious villagers ... and lots more ..... thanks to lord a trip worth remembering for years to come...
