For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram I have put up a quick post showing you some pictures from my very recent road trip that I did from Delhi –> Mumbai –> Goa –> Gokarna –> Hampi –> Aurangabad –> MHOW –> Nasirabad –> Delhi. Spanned over a period of 20 days it was literally a romance with the Indian roads. Luckily we were treated very well and most parts the roads were pretty darn smooth. While I haven’t squeezed in all my Instagram updates while on the trip into this post, I have put in some of my favourite moments captured through my cell phone. Hope you enjoy this and ofcourse you can head onto my Instagram Profile to view all of them.
Morjim Beach Selfie
The first thing you do when you reach Goa? Why stock up on some Kings ofcourse. You get this beer only in Goa so it kinda has to be done.
Paradise Beach Technically falls in Maharashtra. You have to keep driving north of Goa. It has clean sand for days, barely a hint of people, no shacks so you should probably pack your own food and drinks while heading there. But man…what a beach!
Watching the sunset each day you are in Goa is also a kind of ritual. This ones at Vagator Beach. Crowded but still always fun.
If you are in Vagator/Anjuna you HAVE to eat at Blue Bird restaurant if you are fond of local genuine Goan cuisine and have an appetite. This man literally cooks the food in his house and serves it to you there. My mouth is watering while I’m writing about his food. This is ‘Shark Vindaloo’.
The view outside our tents where we stayed in Morjim, Goa.
Its a pity Candolim has exploded quite the way Baga and Calangute have in the past. It just kills the vibe of the place for me atleast. The beach is still lovely but this is too crowded for me now. Poor Candolim.
Agonda Beach in South Goa. What bliss, solitude, sun, sand, sea and yourself. That’s it. You can walk for days on this lovely and quiet beach.
Had the kingfish for atleast one meal every damn day while we were in Goa. So much love!
The cottage in the middle of a forest that we stayed in at Gokarna. A 10 minute drive to Om/Kudle Beach.
One of the less crowded beaches in Gokarna. Shacks all over the beach and lovely people.
Post sunset at Kudle Beach, Gokarna.
Selfie in Hampi among the ruins.
Another selfie in the paddy fields of Hampi.Right outside where we were staying.
The entire road trip was in the Toyota Etios Liva which gave us a top speed of about 165kmph. The moment had to be captured.
This is one thing that you must try if you’re in Maharashtra and haven’t already – The Masala Papad. I absolutely love it. Its basically a pre-cursor to all the meals or a snack item during your drinks.
Loved the atmosphere at Hampi. This is one of the main river crossings where you can cross if you’re on foot but not on bikes and leads you to the main temple
The Ellora Caves in Aurangabad. Absolute beauty and the scale is just majestic.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures. This post is just a quick recap of all the moments during the road trip. Separate blog posts will soon follow so keep a look out!
