Dandiganahalli Dam & Nandi Hills

Dandiganahalli Dam is a small reservoir around 90kms from Bangalore. You travel on the AH-43 (formerly NH-44, Hyderabad Highway) past the Airport Road toll in Devanahalli and then take a deviation from Chikkaballapur. This is a really good place for some peace and quiet since it hardly has any visitors. We were the only people there when we visited.

Amtrak to Portland & the Oregon Historic Route

In my previous post, I summarized my 5 weekends of the recent Vancouver trip. During my trip to Vancouver in 2015, I had crossed the border and visited Seattle. This time I went a state further south to Oregon (Portland). In this post I will highlight my long weekend in Portland. Well technically I spent 8hrs on two of those days traveling to/from Portland but that was an experience too.

2017 Calendar

Let me start with wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2017. Thank you for all the support and encouragement you have shown to me by visiting by blogs and liking my posts on other social media platforms. 

Earlier this week I thought I should try something new this year and one of my ex-colleagues sent me a pdf with 12 of his clicks as a calendar. So I thought to experiment with my clicks. I installed Gimp (for windows) and started playing around with it. This is the first version of my calendar and I am pretty sure there is a lot of room for improvement. Feel free to download and use it as appropriate :)
