Starting this year, Jo & I wanted to resume our monthly outing to a place outside of Bangalore and we’d decided to head to Sravanabelagola during the Republic Day weekend. Unfortunately couple of days before the trip, Jo fell ill and we had to cancel the trip and thus January month went by without a trip. Few days later, Abhilash mentioned that he was arranging for a ride to Melukote and since this was the week after Barcamp Bangalore, Jo & I signed up for the ride.
I’ve always wanted to go on long road trips, but with both Jo and me working, trying to find a contiguous block of holiday has been rather difficult. With me taking a break and Eid holiday coming during middle of the week, we got a chance to do our road trip. Part 2 continues.. Come Tuesday morning, we woke up earlier than usual and started packing for our journey. Sat down for breakfast and gulped down buns made by Mom.
So when I resigned from CGI, I thought I’d have to stay through the entire 2 month notice period with the org. However, since there was no dependency on me, I was hoping for an early release and thankfully that did happen. I initially thought of joining the new job right away but decided to take a month-long break from work and relax for a month. A month seemed quite a lot, however the days went by so fast I didn’t even realise that my break was over.
I was going through Google Photos' Rediscover This Day feature and realized that over the past couple of years, a lot of my trips seem to have happened around this time frame. 2016 This year I was at Goa for a weekend meet with Jo’s cousins Full gallery 2015 Last year, my family and I were at Belur and celebrated my sisters' birthday Full gallery 2014 We seemed to have done nothing in 2014, though I guess this was mainly because we had been to Goa with my folks in May.
