Taking an off from office on a Monday is the best thing you can ever do. Browsing thru Google Maps and the list of places I wanted to go (I have an excel file for the same :P) I found about Saputara which was just on the Maharashtra - Gujarat border. 220Kms one side, doable, I thought. I cleaned and lubed my bike and started preparing. Helmets - CheckGloves - CheckRiding Jacket - CheckKnee Guards - CheckDebit card and cash - Check Previous night excitement still exists. 2 years of travelling and it still lives, I love it!The thoughts were flowing, and I don’t know when I fell asleep. The alarm woke me up, it was 4am. It was time. Performed my morning chores and I was on the road at 5am. Filled fuel tank full and by 5.30 was on the NH3. Long straight highways without potholes, a blessing for a biker like me :)After about 180 kms, just after Nasik, I had to take a left turn. The board said "Saputara - 60 kms"And the pathetic roads began. After much of a struggle, reached Saputara. The place was nice and green. Few adventure games here and there. Roamed around on my bike for couple of hours and then hunted for a restaurant.Saw one which had the board “Unlimited Lunch @ 250 Rs”, bingo, hit a jackpot.Ate authentic Gujarat food and desert, i.e., Gulab Jamun :DThen dozed off on the sofa outside for about an hour and then started my return journey! Was home by 9pm. Day well spent.
Mount Abu in Rajasthan is a terrific tourist attractions and the Sunset at Sunset point is what you should definitely not miss. If you are a nature lover and keen to photograph the beauty of nature, then this is an ideal place. There is nothing extra ordinary here but the climate and the views make it a little more charming than many other hill stations. The best way to enjoy the sunset is while you take a boat ride in the Nakki Lake.

India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
