Kovalam Beach Trivandrum Kerala

Travelled to Trivandrum over a weekend and spent some time at Kovalam beach, which is one of the two popular beaches at Trivandrum. Compared to shanghumukham beach, this was less crowded and good for a small family afternoon. In our case, it also raised heavily which made it bit difficult to have bath and change clothes after spending time at the beach.

Drive to Wayanad (Kerala) Through Gundelpet (Karnataka)

We had to drive to Wayanad for a function through Gundelpet. It was Onam time and there was flowers all along the way (flowers were available for sale as well). We also decided to take a small break and take some pics.

Drive To Malampuzha Dam and Gardens (Palakkad, Kerala)

We decided to take a small deviation on our way back to Bangalore (Karnataka) from Kottayam (Kerala). it is around 200 KMs from Kottayam and around 600 KMs from Bangalore. Though not maintained well (it used to be an important picnic place when I was a kid), it still has some decent attractions. The drive towards was good, there is a rope way over the garden, a decent aquarium, kids train (parents can also get in), playground etc. Anyways my kid was very happy.

Drive To Kottayam (Kerala) Through Salem, Coimbatore and Palakkad

We drove to Kottayam (Kerala) during the long Independence day weekend on August 10th. This was the first time we were taking the DSG Automatic Rapid on a real highway. Feel was better than previous Wayanad drive. Occasionally drove on Sports mode and the response was very good too. Especially the road till Salem was very good. Bypass road skipping coimbatore does not have dividers and hence need to be little more careful. In Kerala, the roads near Palakkad and Muvattupuzha were not that great, but other than than it was a very good drive.

One Day Trip To Cubborn Park & Jawahar Bal Bhavan

Went on a one day weekend trip to Cubborn Park & Jawahar Bal Bhavan. As Cubborn park was just beside Cubborn Park Metro, we decided to go in Metro rather than drive. You can drive and there is parking too, but we chose Metro as we could explore that as well. Moreover if your house is not nearby, then driving home in Bangalore traffic after long walks in the park might not be enjoyable. If you are going in Metro, take the BSNL exit gate.

Drive Through Gundelpet, Wayanad, Thamarassery Ghats to Calicut, Kerala

We went for a drive from Bangalore through Mysore, Gundalpet, Wayanad, Thamarassery Ghats (Thamarassery Churam) to Calicut. We usually start early from Bangalore around 3 so that we could reach Mysore by sunrise and then see the good scenaries that come after Mysore in Gundalpet, Bandhipur forests etc. This time however we were late than usual and reached Mysore late around 7. Went to St. Philomina's Church (now St. Joseph's Church) and restarted journey by around 7.30. Still we could get some nice clicks on the way.

Trip To Innovative Film City, Near Bangalore

Innovative Film City is a nice place closer to Bangalore where you can go for a one day trip with family. It is not outstanding, but surely you will get enough time to spend with family and kids. It is around 50 kms from Bangalore. There are many activities such as Go Carting, museums, magic, swimming pool etc. The swimming pool (Aqua Kingdom) itself will engage you for good amount of time. A simple google search will fetch you more information. However, I will share few pics (pictures speak more than words) and some things I observed .

Welcome Skoda Rapid Diesel DSG AT Style Special Edition Red

Actually Skoda Rapid was not on my list until a week back when I accidentally saw few pics of it online. On the same time I saw few not-so-good reviews about the other vehicle I had almost decided on buying. I always liked the looks of Rapid (Red) and was also happy to see its other features like the DSG gear box. Style Special Edition was also coming with 16'' allow against 15'' allow for other variants, reverse camera with touch screen infoinment system and few additions like spoilers.

It Was Hard To Say Good Bye To My Old Friend - Honda Amaze SMT Diesel

It was a good 4 years relationship with my old friend Honda Amaze SMT Diesel. Though I had occasional issues with Honda Service center and insurance, the car itself was very reliable. Normal issues such as tyre puncher, battery jump start etc. happened at times, but overall my experience was good. Had traveled many times to south and north of Kerala and all the journeys were just fine. Handling in highways were very good. Though in city it used to give a mileage of 12 km per litter, in highways it used to give always about 20 and at once it even crossed 24 kmpl.
