    DSCN0927.jpg DSCN0929.jpg DSCN0928.jpg DSCN0947.jpg DSCN0965.jpg Planning a perfect Getaway on the weekend came the idea of old fashioned weekend trip to Lansdowne from Noida for the weekend. Leaving on Saturday morning and coming back on Monday evening was planned. Every thing was set in place. Diary for Monday cleared. Car prepared for a little bumpy ride. Nitin (my partner in all my mindless adventures) was standing at Greenpark metro station at 20.00 hrs on 11.1.2013 Friday. We had to proceed to Noida to my place for the night stay. Every thing was going on as planned but for the time we slept. Plan was to leave by 0400 Hrs in 12.10.2013 but we woke up at 0700 hrs as usual after the late night catching up. Left at Nine in the morning to Lansdowne. Took us two hours to navigate through the Delhi Meerat Highway. Another one Hour to navigate through the Meerut city. Passed Bijnore, Kotdwar and finally reached the foothills of the mighty Himalayas.

    The chicken Curry prepared by the GMVN cooks was amazing

    Left Lansdowne at 1200hrs on 13.10.2013 and the phone started buzzing just before Kotdwar.As it turned out the Lawyers in Delhi were observing one day strike on 14.10.2013. In an instant agreement to extend the Road trip till Rishikesh was reached at and we started towards Haridwar.
