2 0 1 7…. It is becoming difficult for me to remember when it has started and when it ended. At the hour of closure when I sit back and re-collect the best moments of it, then I realized What a year it’s been. Despite the underlying current of what the hell am I doing, I made some incredible memories in 2017… I have then decided to share few of the events and give a glimpse of the happiest things happened to me….

Highlights of the trip are:
According to a local myth, Dona Paula is entombed in the Cabo Chapel, the residence of the Governor of Goa and is supposed to be seen during a full moon emerging from the moonlit waves wearing only a pearl necklace.

May: My Birthday Month
A Weekend get away to Alampur & Kurnool
Alampur Navabrahma temples are located at alampur in Telangana. There are 9 temples & all of them are dedicated to Lord Shiva. These temples date back to 7th century A.D and were built by the Badami Chalukyas rulers who were great patrons of art and architecture. Even after a time span of several hundred years, these grand temples still stand firm reflecting the rich architectural heritage of the country.
Konda Reddy Burz, also known as Kurnool Fort, is a bastion that establishes the historical importance of Kurnool town in Andhra Pradesh. The rulers of the renowned Vijayanagar Empire built a strategic watch tower here. It is a unique monument due to its singular feature of an underground tunnel which connects the fort to Gadwal, a place 52 km away. The most remarkable feature of this tunnel is that it passes under the River Tungabhadra, a feat unimaginable during the medieval times!
- Konda Reddy Burz is a proof of the architectural acumen and astute military strategies characteristic of the medieval rulers of India. This is one monument you would be truly excited to visit, to learn about its genesis the mystery behind its existence through hundreds of years and its eternal allure..

Banasura Dam & View point:
Considered to be the largest earth dam in India and the second largest in Asia, Banasura Sagar dam is one of the prime attractions in Wayanad. Positioned at a distance of around 21 km away from Kalpetta, this dam is made up of boulders and huge stacks of stones. The dam is quite close to Lake Karalad, another tourist spot in Wayanad.
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. -Lord Byron

A quick weekend getaway to Chandragad fort is best enjoyed when the sky is overcast, which makes the 80km journey from Mahbubnagar delightful. Driving through the countryside, dotted with paddy fields and hillocks.
