Road trip from Bengaluru to Agumbe

The road trip from Bengaluru to Agumbe can be a thrilling experience for those who like to enjoy the nature at its best. Agumbe was only the last point in our route map. The purpose of our trip was to explore the places of interest on the way.

We were travelling in my car and so I had to pick up all fellow travellers, three of them from two different locations. As usual, I was late to the UB City, the first pickup point. The two colleagues were already their biting their teeth; I am not sure, if it was too cold or if they waited for longer time. It was 7.30 a.m. and the agreed time was half an hour before. I did not pick both their calls and made them wait without any hint.

We three zoomed through Rajajinagar, of course in my Swift car, to pick up the last occupant. In any given group, there will be one person who is little different. I saw that character in the last one who entered the car wearing shorts.

During our last trip, when we did “Triranga Darshanam,” we did not stop for food during our first day of our travel except for some quick bites. Fortunately, I had packed a loaf of bread spread with better and that came in handy. Expecting similar situation during this trip, I packed the bread again but it replaced our lunch.

We had a great start with great breakfast. Thanks to the “Brahmins Thatte Idly” a corner restaurant in Rajajinagar where we had a splendid breakfast. What a way to start the journey.
