I always heard of the trip to goa as being planned but never executed, but with us it was like unplanned, but executed!. We planned a road trip to "Gokarna" from Banglore by car and scheduled few beaches to visit. More than destination the roads enroute were thrilling and as it was monsoon season , the valleys were loaded with "green beauty". It was approximately 560kms from Banglore by road. The highway with windmills around and green plateaus made us to stop car again and again in between and enjoy the sips of tea. At 7pm we got to know that road has been closed during night due to heavy rainfall. We booked a hotel overnight at a place called "Sirsi" approximately 150kms from Gokarna.
