Day 3 started with a half tea and our usual cloud computing sessions. Before hitting the road for Bangalore we decided to wander around beach, have breakfast at Le Cafe and do a bit of shopping. By the time we checked out from our lodge it was around 9, we hurried to Le Cafe.
Le Cafe, there it was standing against the sea with its strength, calm, overlooking at Bay of Bengal. Perfect for us to spend some more time, we four the beach lovers what else do we need. Enter the Cafe, loved the way they had managed the hotel. Le Cafe has maintained its Portugese architecture cues.
We settled down overlooking the Bay of Bengal, trust me, the view was terrific. Went through the menu, there were many items to try out. But to avoid any tummy issues during the roadtrip we went for Idli Vada and some tea.
Before leaving for Bangalore, we decided to have a final stroll at the Pondi beach boulevard as we don’t know when we will back here next time. Walked along the beach, we realized we were glad as we made the trip by leaving the daily chores of life.
Look at the snaps, you will know how awesome the beach boulevard it was.
It was around 11/12 finally we decided to leave for Bangalore, had our stand up meeting, applied our estimation and managerial skills on how to take on the route and reach Bangalore without any trouble.
With the song “We are the Champions” in our heads, we were cruising on NH66. It is terrific to be on road, the world passes by like a movie in a fast forward mode. The excitement to be at home (Bangalore) made us to cover up as much as distance even with pain, we took few breaks.
It was 6 PM when we saw dark clouds when we were near Krishnagiri. It was so dark, we thought it will rain any moment, but we were going on. Cloud disappeared when we entered Krishagiri (as if disappeared, it was night, so we couldn’t spot the clouds, we had no idea what was ahead for us).
After Krishnagiri we touched the NH7, well the legendary NH7, four laned. Night riding, so it was my and Guru’s task to take over riding, which we took it with a huge smile on our faces. We stopped for a Tea break at Kamath’s Inn followed by a cloud computing session.
Look at our faces:
Battled out the Hosur traffic by putting our riding skills at test, we found the straights again. After crossing the Hosur Toll, it rained so badly we ran for shelter. By the time we were under a roof (off course, tea shop) we were soaked. Aargh, 15 kms away from Bangalore and we are stuck.
At 10 PM Abhay messaged he reached his flat, me and Guru hi fived for the Roadtrip, everyone reached safely and we did that.
Summary of the trip:
3 days on road, 661 kms covered, visited 3 states, soaked ourselves in Bay of Bengal and off course got Sun Burned. After effect, a big smile on our faces for making the RoadTrip to Pondicherry.
Abhay, Guru and Naveen, \m/ for you guys, that was fun and it was an E.P.I.C Roadtrip.
