I have been traveling all my life around the country with my parents. My family loves travelling, there is a special soft corner for road trips and we are always ready for some adventurous bird-watching trips.
A couple of years back, when I got married to Sunny who was a complete ‘Bombay boy’ and had not traveled much, I jumped at the task of showing off the beautiful vibrant India to him.
Some times the most scenic roads in life
are the detours you did not mean to take.~Angela N Blount
Sunny is an avid wildlife photographer (check out his instagram page) and was a welcome addition to our family of birdwatchers. There are innumerable species of birds found in India for every terrain and in search of those, most of our travels are on a beaten path where normally no typical tourist would wander.
Road trips are great for experiencing the art of slow travel. You have the independence of deciding the speed of travel and the best part is the freedom to stop anywhere and absorb the surroundings. Breath in the new air, try food at a local dhabba or just grab a quick chai or nariyal/nimbu pani and stretch your legs, take some amazing photos and carry on…
In these blogs I have shared my experiences of road travel trips around India.
When there is a choice, always do a road trip!

the trip itself becomes part of the story.~Steve Rushin
