To start with, the clock struck at 5AM. I woke up and went to fill up my fuel tank. Got back home in few minutes and went to shower. Packed my bags and wore my safety gear. Stepped out of my home and un-parked my bike. Dad and mom helped me in setting up the luggage on the pillion seat. I started the
engine and headed towards National Highway 16. This is the highway which connects Kolkata and Chennai. Its 6:25am when I started at my home. After 15 minutes, I reached Annavaram(famous place which attracts Hindu pilgrims)and stopped my bike.
I took out my mobile phone and snapped few pics. It had a pleasant weather and greenery around us. Those Eastern ghats are looking fabulous with lots of trees and greenery.
Started my journey and after 40 min, I reached Prathipadu. I called to my old collegemate and to my luck he is in his home. We met and chit-chatted for a while. Revved up the throttle and reached Rajamahendravaram. I took a halt on the Godavari 4th Bridge. It felt amazing to see the Godavari River and 4km long beautiful Railway bridge.In order to shorten the distance, I took Devarapalli-Kovvur Road. I halted for a while in a remote place and had a beautiful conversation with some local children while having my breakfast. I bidded them a Good-bye and revved up. I came across few animals which were crossing the road and I kept riding after I gawked at them for a while. By 1:30 pm I crossed Cijaywada and chose a nice place to have my lunch. After lunch, I geared up and it was NH 65 and it felt good to drive on that broad road. I reached Outer Ring Road by 6pm and I stopped to grab some snacks from my bag. I was just sitting and looking at the vehicles which are moving at high speeds. After enjoying the cool breeze for a while, I started riding and reached my destination at 7:30 pm.
I started at 6:25am and reached my destination at 7:30pm. Overall, It was a nice experience and I learnt a few things.
