Karnataka Journals, Part 1

          I remember the night before the trip. I was filled with excitement and anxiety. I was looking forward to it but also dreading it. I wanted to go because I could write travel posts on my blog. I didn't want to go because my heart wasn't completely in it. But, at the end of that week, I'm home with bitter-sweet memories. It wasn't a fantastic trip. I don't think there's anything as an ideal trip because some things always go wrong. But, it wasn't completely hopeless. It started with regrets but ended with happiness.
           Our trip included Bangalore, Mysore and Coorg. There was a lot of travelling; train and bus. I think most of our time went in travelling. Train travelling was fun because there were friends to enjoy with. Bus travelling was a torture for me. Loud music was constantly blaring from the speakers. Everyone enjoyed that but it's not my cup of tea. I love to travel by bus. I like to sit in the window, listening to songs on my mobile, thinking about stuff, reminiscing and just enjoying the views of the place. I did that to a certain extent but couldn't enjoy it to the core.
          So anyway, unlike the last post of my industrial visit to Kerala, this one is going to be different. I'm going to cut all the personal stuff regarding friends and night gossips. I think it's overrated. So, this time, I'll just portray my thoughts about the places I visited. I think that actually makes up a good travel post. Who wants to hear about random people bitching about each other anyway, right?
           Our first stay was at Bangalore. We saw absolutely nothing in the city. We visited Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. We saw a short documentary at the beginning. Then we were given a tour of the place. We saw their achievements throughout the years. Further, we saw models of airplanes, engines, fighter aircraft and so on.

 Our stay was just for one day in Bangalore. The next day we were off to the next destination. Stay tuned for travel posts in Mysore!
