Day 2

From Hubli we started around 8.am towards Ratnagiri.
We did major mistake here .we took Amboli Ghat instead of kolhapur route. Because this route is Goa -Mumbai highway which is under construction.do don't take this road at any cost .
Because of very bad road we couldn't reach Ratnagiri on time .so we stopped our ride around 9:pm somewhere 40 km far from Ratangiri.
Hubli- Ratnagiri : 340km

Day 3

We started from our hotel (some local hotel which is good for guys) around 8:am towards ratangiri.marj my words on of the best stretch of costal you will ever get .
We explored Ratnagiri for some time .
Then we went to Shri Devi Bhagwati mandir. So peaceful and an awesome view . Then head towards Ganapati pule and played in beach after that we headed towards Mumbai where planned to stay .
And my god from Ganapati pule till we touch goa-mumbai Highway .it is  a heaven.
The roads are again worst and I order to get rid we took inside village and did all the circus but still we reached Mumbai around morg 3:am.
