Vacation in Goa

This New year’s eve 2009, we decided to goto goa. We stayed there for 5 days and it felt too less. Goa is very unique in its own way. It is definately my top palce for vacation. It is one place where you go and do “nothing”, but just relax. Turn your mind off, lie on the beach and relax!

Bannerghatta National Park

Bannerghatta National Park is situated 22 km south of Bangalore, Karnataka, India. The journey to the park takes nearly half an hour from Bangalore. This hilly place is the home for one of the richest natural, zoological reserves. The 25,000 acre (101 km²) zoological park makes this a major tourist attraction of Bangalore.

Having stayed in Bangalore for so many years I had never visited Bannerghatta National Park. In my previous attempt to this place, I ended up climbing a hill near that place.

The place reminded me of the movie Jurassic park. It was my first wild life safari! 🙂

We started off with the herbivour safari.
