  We generally started traveling, to spend our Sundays more efficiently and make it enjoyable . At that point, we never imagined we would be traveling so many places. During our journey, we picked up new hobbies such as bird-watching  , identifying insects ,mushrooms, animals , reptiles , and trees. The sheer happiness of seeing a new bird or identifying a new insect gave us lot of pleasure and satisfaction.We are also learning of the rich heritage and culture our nation offers. Here we are, sharing our experiences of our journey towards exploring our Incredible India.
   We started to blog with our major objective being able" to compile places we have visited  in and around Bangalore". And we are happy to know that since the time we have put our best foot forward in this direction, apart from having shared knowledge, we have also learned much from it and continue to do so.
