The Monsoon Road Trip! (a photo post)

As is usual with me, I start my day early on holiday's! Unlike quite a few who go to holidays to relax I just can't rest easy... I want to take in as much of my holiday as I can and hence am up early always! It was raining crazily at 6.14 in the morning as we set out for our trip Sunday morning! :D

The monsoons are a great time to drive in the country side, the national highways in Gujarat are kind of boring with 6 lanes and no trees. These smaller state highways with green tunnels have always appealed to me more! :D

Add to that the magic of passing a National Park on the way, the park was closed for monsoon. No, we didn't spot anything along the park either, still we were enthused that we might spot something all of a sudden! :D

Getting stuck in a mad rush on Sunday of tourists to Saputara was one of those things.. the glistening mirror though added magic to the whole thing!

The woods though were supremely green, lush and tall! A slight incentive that kept people calm during the traffic jams! :)

Impromptu Kanda Bhajji breaks with Chai were the order of the day to keep the energy up! :D

Picturesque the journey surely was!

Greenery that just soothes your soul and keeps you gushing at the vibrancy!

A few table plated mountains that seemed to be pretty happily taking all they could from the grey skies!

A quaint lil settlement with a lovely pond! This comes straight out of some British novel! :D
