India trip 2017

Post by Jeroen »

Always loved India for it's beautiful people, mentality, culture, history, nature, weather, almost anything! So I've been there quite a few times already but since the last time was over 7 years ago it was about time to go and visit a new part of this wonderful country again, we chose to take the far south this time

Started off in the southernmost city of Trivandrum in the state of Kerala, a quiet and green state with a long and lovely coastline. Rickshaw city tour!

Image

Image

then into the Nilgiri mountains heading for the town of Thekkady, gate to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary

Image

Already you find wonderful tea plantations along the way

Image

Image

Took the time for trekking and rafting the nature reserve

Image

Bear was here

Image

Image

Amazing views, unique as well after the British placed a dam in the forest (over 100 years ago) to keep the water in the hills to irrigate the tea plantations

Image

Image

Saw several groups of wild elephants

Image

Image

Image

and much more

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

over to the city of Madurai (Tamil Nadu) to visit one of the largest temple complexes worldwide, the Sri Meenakshi

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

ah that feels safe

Image

Image

Image

photobombing Indian style :lol:

Image

sightseeing Madurai

Image

Image

Gandhi museum

Image

Image

The usual traffic challenges

Image

And also doing something for the second time, 'when in Rome...' :wink: Nilgiri Mountain Railway to Ooty

Image

Image

Image

with fresh elephant dung

Image

and monkeys everywhere

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

stayed in a villa from the colonial days in Ooty

Image

Image

finally, over to the more central state of Goa to meet old friends, and tour North Goa by motorbike. And the weather was fabulous on all days!

Beautiful! I wish..
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
