Club Mahindra Resorts are renowned worldwide for their facilities and home-stay provisions suiting all the budgets in various locations. We had a nice time in their huge property surrounded by greenery, a nice morning stroll followed by a lavish breakfast spread and yes, the coffee plantation trail. That was simply amazing.
Coorg coffee is well-renowned and we bought ourselves instant coffee packets and for everyone at home which keeps our mornings extremely happy back in Delhi. Now in the Delhi rains, we relish the coffee over the fond memories of our trip.
Bangalore in a Jiffy
From Coorg its an 8-hour drive to Bangalore city but with this crazy bunch time just flew, we sang songs, had our selfies clicked, took food and tea breaks zillion times and not to forget got carried away to extend our trip to Bandipur National Park (Bandipur National Park established in 1974 as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger, is a national park located in the south Indian state of Karnataka) but could not get through our GPS because of the network problem, sigh, otherwise yes, we were all game to extend our trip. :) Nevertheless, the signal didn’t cooperate for quite a while and then it was Bangalore calling.
On reaching Bangalore, my husband and his friends had a major nostalgic rush and could not contain their excitement seeing their engineering college, their favourite eateries and every corner that defined their ruthless fun-filled college days. Well, who would not be thrilled visiting back in time where your fondest memories reside. College days… Aah..:)
Bangalore was the end of the trip with this bunch and before we could all part ways and head to our respective stations, we had an amazing dinner at this very famous Brewpub Toit. A must try, visit this place when you are in Bangalore next.
Me and Saurabh were getting innumerable calls from Saurabh’s sister who lives in Bangalore and we were extremely excited to meet her and the family. So, after a big group hug, we left for her place.
We entered home with hugs from our little munchkins, our brother-in-law and an exquisite dinner prepared for us. Mutton lasagne and Chilly Paneer, Wow, what else to ask for? May be some Red Wine, that too was there to just make everything perfect. Nothing in the world, no plush accommodation, no comfort can match the joy of being home and coming to that hospitality, well sister’s love… :)
After 4 days of continuous destination hopping we weren’t too ready for exploring Bangalore. My sister-in-law took me to the famous market called commercial street for some shopping. We rested 2 days in Bangalore, went to a near-by place- Nandhini Cool Joint to have the famous south-Indian filter coffee. We got treated to the amazing home- cooked south-Indian food which I still start salivating the moment I think about it.
Bangalore was super fun, after a good rest of 2 complete days, we left for Pondicherry via road. Do catch up with my Pondicherry diary in my published blog post here. :)
Stay tuned, lots more to come.
Till then Happy Reading. Thanks for stopping by!!
