It was that time of the year again-DECEMBER. When bells jingle and wishes tingle to remind you of that perfect X-mas present. For me, it is mostly the same always-taking the most anticipated trip of the year to my home country, INDIA :)
Two years ago, I moved to England for my Post-Graduation in Engineering. In addition, I juggled with a couple part-time jobs so I could travel around Europe. But during these escapades, sudden cravings to explore India would spring unexpectedly. PS: Believe it or not, as an undergraduate student, I once cancelled on my parents to attend a course-related workshop when I could have easily holidayed in Bali! :(
These instances from the past troubled me so much that I vowed to take at least one trip in India, every year. As this trip coincides with an annual visit to my home-state, it also nicely fills the void that my seemingly heavenly solo trips leave behind. Last year, my family and I escaped to God's own country and this year, we decided to spend two days in the golden heritage of the Vijayanagara empire-HAMPI!
THE ROUTE: Bangalore->Chitradurga->Hampi->Anegondi->Sanapur Lake ->Bangalore
