The river and the forest - Dandeli

Continued from the previous post - The two Beaches - Gokarna & Goa

Day 3
After the overdose of beaches and the sun, we decided to move to the next location - Dandeli. The train was at 930am from Madgaon station and we had to buy tickets from the station for the general compartments. We left from colva beach by the first bus which was at around 715am and reached station at around 815am. There is no direct bus from colva to station. You need to get down at some place and walk for 15mins to reach the station. I think there is a bus from the Madgaon Kadamba station but I am not really sure.

The two Beaches - Gokarna & Goa

2013 has been kind to me. I managed to save a little money this year. And as a bachelor, I wanted to blow it off on something epic (just saying :) ). After speaking with friends, the dates were finalized. 21st to 25th December. It was challenging to decide on the location mainly because we couldn't think of any place which was worth visiting for 5days.

The initial plan was Goa (yeah I have been there twice this year) but it is super expensive this time of the year. So we looked into various options and settled on Gokarna and Dandeli. We still wanted to squeeze in Goa somewhere. So below is how the trip went along. I will write about the trip in 2 separate posts.

The other side!!

We always wish we could re-live the good old days. As PU students we wanted it all to get over soon so that we could go join an engineering college. During engineering we wanted the 4yrs to pass by so that we could take a lucrative job. And once we are there, we want to turn back time and go back to the good old days. I myself have contributed to trending #GoodOldDays, #YouRemember and many such hashtags on twitter (Twitter Addict Alert!!). In the last 2 weeks I got opportunities to revisit my past ( Yeah! Opportunity did knock twice :D ).

A well deserved break!!

I have been going to Goa every year from when i was a baby. This was the first time i actually had some real fun. If you are wondering what i did all these years then the answer is, visiting temples (If you are not convinced then read one of my earlier posts here). I have been meaning to go to Goa with friends for ages and i finally got the time last weekend.

The world has changed a lot in the past few years. We now also give importance to capturing and sharing our memories along with experiencing it first hand. Photography has come a long way to help us achieve it. I have always been lagging behind when it came to getting the latest stuff. When people started moving towards the digital cameras in the early 2000's, i got my first camera, the one with the 36photo reel. And now that all my friends are owning a DSLR, i finally have a simple low end point and shoot camera.

A day outing - Bike, Roads and Food

One of my friends is leaving for his MS next month, so we wanted to plan a trip. Planning a trip is tough especially when the people going on this trip work in different companies. After looking into all options and feasibility, we came to a conclusion that we cant have a trip. It was my friends last weekend in Bangalore and to quote his words "A lot of people want to meet me but i don't have time". (I can give the link to his tweet :P) We now decided to make it a day outing. Since only 3 of us were available, we did not have much choice as in what to do or where to go. So we decided to take it one step at a time (Too much cricket commentary influence). All we needed was a start.

Microsoft BizSpark

I belong to the family that owns a couple of Vegetable Shops in Udupi district. We are one big family and i have about 2 dozen cousins. One fine evening few years back we elder kids sat in garden and spoke about having a Shenoy Mansion (Yeah, totally Hindi Soap types) and expanding/managing the family business. Years passed by and in a few years there will be a dozen engineers in the family. One day in future i would love to be a part of something owned and managed by our family. Having said that let me get back to the topic of the post :)

Social Weekend!!

Bangalore is a happening place. No, not referring to the night life but in terms of events that happen in Bangalore. I got an opportunity to attend 4 events over Friday and Saturday. Here is a small write up on each of those events.

Ring The Bell

One million men, One million promises, End violence against women
Ring the bell is a worldwide campaign that has been started to fight against the violence against women. Ring the bell campaign took place across the globe on the Women's Day. In Bangalore, Onskies was a proud partner of this initiative and they called for a meetup to discuss what can be done to improve the current situation in India. I got an opportunity to be a part of it.
