North Karnataka Road Trip in Car - Part I

We planned to go for one road trip on car before the actual summer starts. So we chose places like Hampi, Badami, Pattadakal & Aihole. Initally, we were expecting many people to join but unfortunately only four could make it up for the trip.

We decided to cover all these places on 8th and 9th of March. It was planned in such a way that, we would leave Bangalore on 7th evening itself and reach Hospet by 10 PM and halt for the day. Then next 2 days cover all places and comeback to Bangalore on 10th March before evening.

There was a slight delay at the start as i was not able to leave office by 3PM on 7th March. We started around 4:30 PM and reached Dobbaspet around 6 PM for snacks @KAMAT. We were there for around 40 min and then left the place. After few hours of travel, we had dinner @ Chitradurga and continued with traveling. We were using Navigation to ensure whether we are following right path or not. When we were near to Hospet, Navigation system started to guide us wrongly. Believing that we followed and ended up nowhere :( It was like almost 20-25 minutes waste by just driving to wrong place. We called up the hotel guy and asked him to guide us to reach his place. He did not guide us properly and again started wandering here n there for around 30 min and finally asked the route from localites. They guided us properly and we finally reached the hotel. Time when we checked in was around 1:30 midnight. We got a very good offer on that day, they gave us 2 Luxury rooms for normal price. Below is the glimpse of the room :)

We were very tired that day and hence had a very good nap. Next day morning, everyone became ready within the planned time, ate an awesome breakfast and all set to visit HAMPI.
