Road Trip: 6,000 Kilometres, 7 States, 2 Plates Of Kolhapuri Chicken And 1 Orange

Padubidri beach near Mangaluru in Karnataka. It is India's newest "Blue Flag" category beach. A short highway drive some days ago led to this blog post. Three of us drove down from Delhi to Udaipur, then Udaipur to Mumbai and then Mumbai to a beach in north Goa, where we reached a bit tired at night but still found the time to pop open some beers to call it a day. Days later, we drove onwards to a town near Mangaluru to see the beaches. No one gives a sherbet these days, so this post will omit annoyances like scenery, sunset, the mountains-are-calling and I-love-travel nonsense. Mangaluru-Goa highway. My mother, three years away from turning 70, for a long time knows some nuts and bolts have come loose in my head. She is used to hearing unexpected things from people about me. When word reached her that I have decided to drive down south thousands of kilometres with some people from Delhi, with the possibility that I may drive back home alone for a few thousand kilometres
