    Default Short but Mesmerizing ride to Nandi Betta

    Who says short trip can not be fun? I say yes it is fun, and i intend to prove my point by the below Travelogue.

    It all started Wednesday night when both me and my good friend Vinay were returning from office at 10:30 pm in the night. We recently travelled to Chikmagalur on Bike (http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/tourer/2...tml#post953358) and honestly our minds were not completely into the work that were assigned to us in office. Bugged with the work-load, added to a nice chilly ride back home in the night, was making me restless. Having dinner at a road-side stall, to my surprise, Vinay started expressing his frustrations as well about the work pressure in his project. And since we both were into the mood of travelling since the day we returned from the Chikmagalur trip, we started thinking of going out to some place that is near to Bangalore and also we can come back my morning as we had to go to office next day (Oh Hell! ). Anyways, out of couple of options we thought of going to Nandi Betta (popularly known as Nandi Hills in and around Bangalore) which was some mere 70 odd kms from the city. We both were there like been to Nandi Hills thousands of times before, but hey, how many can surpass the hunger to ride . We decided to meet up at 3am early morning Thursday. Needless to say, i was feeling lot better when i prepared for my sleep and put my alarm for 2:30 am the next day.

    Woke up sharp at 2:30 am by the alarm, got ready in super duper speed! and went to Vinay's house by 3 am. Funny when i found out that Mr. Vinay had not informed his mom about our short trip, rather he has told her that he is going to practice Badminton . Anyways, we sneaked past the haunted lanes of Indiranagar and started off for Nandi Hills.

    Let me not waste any more time by going to minute details of our trip. Let the pictures do the talking now. Here you go..

    Nice pics there.

    Really good.

    Really these kind of trips always gives more fun than those planned Trips.

    In planned trips there's always something to regret.
    Sometimes of the place we couldn't make to, shortage of time, plan change and etc etc.

    16, 17 and Last pic are Kewl !

    @SuvraGanguly Superb pics. Nandi Hills look like a totally different world. Awesome
    You are totally right my friend. Short trips are awesome and they are like much needed fillers between long rides and keep your hunger to ride at bay.
    may I suggest here THIS THREAD which might be useful to you for few more short and sweet rides and also for the photographer in you
