    Default Ride Across India: GJ - Porbandar

    After a filling buffet breakfast at the attached restaurant, Sankalp, I left Hotel Oasis, Bhuj at 9 am on 24 Feb 2017, had a cold sweet lassi at Honest near Jamnagar for lunch and reached Hotel Lords Eco Inn, Porbandar at 4 pm. After a shower and tea, rode to Kirti Mandir and the beach. Had an early sumptuous dinner and retired to bed for a well-deserved sleep.

    Default Ride Across India: GJ - Diu

    25 Feb 2017. Saturday.On this day, my destination was Diu, just 211 km from my hotel at Porbandar. This was the shortest section I rode to reach a destination on any day, not only in this ride, but also all the 3 mega rides put together. Usually, Bangalore <-> Chennai used to be the shortest section, but Porbandar -> Diu has beaten that record!

    I got up late, ate a late, delicious and excellent buffet breakfast, slept again, got ready and left the hotel at 12 noon only. I wish to mention here that I ate the best breakfast at Lords Eco Inn, Porbandar in this ride. I skipped my usual lunch, cold sweet lassi on this day and rode to Diu.

    En route, I stopped at Madhavpur Beach to click some photos. After reaching my place of stay at Diu, I dumped the luggage in the room and rode to Diu Fort and Nagoa Beach.

    Default Ride Across India: GJ - Homebound

    26 Feb 2017. Sunday.

    I started my ride from Diu to Ginger, Vadodara at 6:10 am in biting cold. Unlike the past 3 departures, I was riding without having breakfast. After few hours, heat replaced the cold, accompanied by bad roads. All along, I was looking for some Honest or Sankalp restaurants, but in vain.

    Blue Bird overtook me and got its fuel first well before me at Reliance Petro pump at Nari on the Bhavnagar bypass at 10 am. After getting tankful, I went to the bathroom. I had some biscuits and nuts. Later, while chatting with the pump attendants, I asked them, if there were any Honest or Sankalp restaurants nearby on the way to Vadodara. But, they replied in negative. But, one attendant suggested Anchor with exact location for food, and thanks to him, I had good food there. I reached Ginger Vadodara at 2:30 pm and took rest.

    27 Feb 2017. Monday.

    On this day too, I left Ginger Vadodara without having breakfast. Later, I breakfasted at the very first Honest restaurant on NH. As usual, had sweet lassi for lunch and evening tiffin at Vithal Kamat, Manor on the LHS of NH. Got caught in a big traffic jam at Ghodbunder junction, crossed Thane and other suburbs and reached Ginger Wakad at 8:45 pm.

    28 Feb 2017. Tuesday.

    By the time I left Ginger Wakad, it was 1:45 pm. My bird got tankful at Reliance, Satara, and I, at Sai Food Court, ~30 km before Kolhapur. Reached home, sweet home at Bangalore at 2:30 am on the next day.
