One day trips around Bangalore!

It has been a while since I explored new places. The last time I traveled was during the Gokarna-Goa-Dandeli trip in December 2013. This year I did not get a chance to go on a holiday but I did manage to visit a few new places around Bangalore. As a coincidence I had written a similar post during the same time last year (A day outing - Bike, Roads and Food). So here are the places I visited in the last 4 weeks.

To quit or not to quit

QY4dqDu-While everyone seems to be worrying about the Whatsapp acquisition by Facebook, there are a whole lot of other people who are worried about their careers. A lot of companies have gone trough the exercise of laying people off in the name of skill re-balance, title inflation, cost cutting and many other fancy words used in the industry. In certain cases, I have heard the actual reason behind the firing was 'not sucking up to their bosses'. In this context, there are a few questions I would like to post, based on the talks I had with my colleagues and few friends working in other organizations.

The river and the forest - Dandeli

Continued from the previous post - The two Beaches - Gokarna & Goa

Day 3
After the overdose of beaches and the sun, we decided to move to the next location - Dandeli. The train was at 930am from Madgaon station and we had to buy tickets from the station for the general compartments. We left from colva beach by the first bus which was at around 715am and reached station at around 815am. There is no direct bus from colva to station. You need to get down at some place and walk for 15mins to reach the station. I think there is a bus from the Madgaon Kadamba station but I am not really sure.

The two Beaches - Gokarna & Goa

2013 has been kind to me. I managed to save a little money this year. And as a bachelor, I wanted to blow it off on something epic (just saying :) ). After speaking with friends, the dates were finalized. 21st to 25th December. It was challenging to decide on the location mainly because we couldn't think of any place which was worth visiting for 5days.

The initial plan was Goa (yeah I have been there twice this year) but it is super expensive this time of the year. So we looked into various options and settled on Gokarna and Dandeli. We still wanted to squeeze in Goa somewhere. So below is how the trip went along. I will write about the trip in 2 separate posts.
