Basically I love to travel a lot but sadly I dint get much chance to discover new places. If I have to write about my best trip, well, here it is.
I have many reasons to choose this as my best trip. Foremost, it is the first... er... the only entire family trip till date. Second it is my first ever road trip. It has every element a trip needs - family, fun, craziness, petty fights, adjustments, altogether learning from our experiences.
It was during our vacation, when my dad and uncle family coming home from abroad after a year. We were so excited looking for this long awaited family tour. A dream road trip...
Our journey started from Chennai. Scorpio started vroom-ing in the national highway in that scorching April heat. Later in the evening, the weather started to cheer us as we almost reached
We spent there a day, then headed to Bangalore . Actually Falls was not in our
agenda. But since we were in Karnataka for the first time and remembering our
geography lessons about Jog Falls ’s highest waterfalls, we persuaded our dad to take us there as a study tour ;) but only to see the waterfalls similar to this... Never mind, after
all we had a wonderful long drive. Entire journey we had lotsa fun
karoke-ing, playing riddles, name-place-things and dumb charades. India

On our way back to
, the road was
along the coastal side with awesome view. This was the trip where I discovered my craze towards sunglasses. Every
time we set out, immediately I felt like wearing my new coolers. One day I
wondered *what if people think I am showing off* so to avoid that, I said aloud fluttering my hands, ‘ah... my eyes are burning yaar..!’ Everyone burst out
laughing and started teasing, ‘ok.. ok.. now we all know you’re going
to wear the sunglasses. ippo indha scene thevaya?’ Since then it makes me
smile every time I wear my sunglasses. B-) Mysore

In Mysore Palace, some foreigners asking for help with my uncle. Being not fluent in English, my cousins and I started to converse among us in ‘Englibberish’ to showoff that we speak it better. Well, that's how we started developing our 'code language'. :P

As we reached Coorg, it started drizzling with a weather apt to travel. We stopped in many places to simply enjoy the scenic beauty and to take family pictures. Throughout the journey, we were pretending like TV anchors presenting a travel show and talked about the places, recording in our handycam.

Finally, the trip ended at Raja's seat with a note... ‘ayyo, the tour is over already..’ sigh!
Besides all those first time fun, do I've to look for any other reason to say this is the best trip I ever went?
Being grownups, we went again to trace back our old cherished memories to the same places last year and the pictures were taken then...
