Weekly Notes 40/2023

We are in Thrissur today. We are here for 3 to 4 weeks as we do almost every quarter. This time, it’s special as it’s the baby’s first long drive. I thought it would be challenging, but it was much easier than I thought. We took additional baby breaks; otherwise, all five of us reached Thrissur comfortably. The car now looks like an overlander. It’s now ready to take us anywhere for a longer period of time; It needs a blog of its own. 

Ride through clouds and curves to Valaparai

It started with the plan to ride to Gokarna through Shivamogga. After our ride to Kanyakumari almost an year back we wanted to go for a long ride desperately. Heavy rains in Western Ghats of Karnataka forced us to change the destination. Anand suggested that we will ride to Valparai and it would be good. We agreed as soon as we knew it had 40 hair pin curves. This time we didn’t have time to do any planning.
