Western Coastal ride [part-07]

Continuation of my previous post Western Coastal ride [part-06]

Dec 31:  Woke up early morning and started arranging the luggage’s in the car as we are on our return journey which is going to be a longest drive of 1800kms.

Most people returning from holiday feel that the journey home passes by much quicker than the outward leg. Keeping this in mind my fellowman with lots of hopes to have a peaceful dinner at home on new year i.e Jan 1st started driving back home we set off on the final leg of our journey. From veraval, Gujarat to Bangalore.

Passed via The Gir Forest National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary where chances of spotting a Lion.

Road entering to the forest. The risk here is we were given only 50minutes to exit through the other side of the forest. If not we will end up paying a penalty of 500rs for every 1o minutes.

Peacocks and Deers… We are here not to spot you…  Anyways…
