Our Travel Plan

We love all roads, new and well-traveled! But this time working on being on a path that has it all - mountains, beaches, rivers, monuments, vernacular architecture, forests, Ghats etc etc. We are also trying a balanced mix of cities/ towns/ villages enroute. we will be concentrating on state highways in the first half, and national highway on our way back with intermittent detours to explore the unknown.
