I still feel like I am on the road, travelling, exploring ..The Hoysala trail did make me feel a bit of an explorer myself..The thrill of discovering something new…I need to read more about the places that I have been before posting on the Hoysala trail. I also need to complete my posts on my Mangalore-Sringeri trip and my Coorg trips before starting on the Hoysala trail..A few writing assignments are pending as well..

Why am I on a rant ? The roads still beckon me..maybe Im having withdrawal symptoms 🙂

    wanderlust – I just came back from a trip too….

    I can totally feel the withdrawal symptoms – thats why I take a trip every three-four months…maybe a capri triat I guess….

    Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂

    I miss traveling very much…a bit hard with jobs and children, but ‘seasons’ are what they are. We do our best to get away as we can. I’ll just have to enjoy your blog, and a few others to at least ‘visually’ travel for now! 😉 Love the photos!

    Look forward to seeing your pics!
    Meanwhile, thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, where I’m now in Casablanca, however missing Ilsa Lund… ;(
    And only eighteen months delayed… ;))
    Hope you have a great weekend!
