Apologies… my last post was on more than 6 months back.
Just an excuse that I am running an IT company since April 2018 and as happens with any business, there are ups and downs. We don’t get time when its up but get plenty when its down :D. Being busy I missed posting a few important events and trips. But don’t want to miss this one as this is very special :).
I was fortunate to get a chance to work overseas and spend 7 years in a very beautiful country like Singapore, got many opportunities to travel to various countries of southeast Asia like Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, and others.
On the other side, when people fascinate about traveling these countries I have developed a fascination to travel and explore India. Since I came back in 2013, I keep on traveling wherever I could on holidays, though my limits are only 500KM around Delhi.
Once a year I keep everything aside and go on a road trip with friends, I call it freedom trip when everyone in the group is free to live (eat, drink or sleep) as they want to. My group is very limited to the old and close friends only in which one is Dr. Sharad and other my brother Bal Krishna. This freedom trips are happening every year since 2008, but 2018 was an exception when it did not happen. This year again, February had the perfect weather to hit the road with friends, leave the concrete jungle, noise, pollution, and the crowd behind and go to some remote area of the country.
Staying in the wilderness gives me a feeling of immense peace and happiness. MP is always our most favorite state, it has the lowest population density and has large (very large) nature reserves, where else you want to go when you wish absolute peace!
I went to Lucknow for a business trip, decided to stretch this into a vacation, called Sharad and BK and we were good. We have started from Allahabad (Now Prayag). The travel itinerary was as below –
Prayagraj -> Sagar -> Sanchi -> Bhopal -> Panna Tiger Reserve -> Khajuraho -> Prayagraj
There was a night halt on each destination. Posting a few pics of the trip.
