Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness. - Ray Bradbury

A perfect example of a golden opportunity and grabbing it with both hands.

Was down with high fever on Sunday and seeing me still cough in office on Monday, boss granted me a half day leave. Well wasn't at all feeling down or feverish- though my expressions might have been that of a patient, decided to make best use of this half day and rode to Pawana lake- a few kms from Lonavla.

Clicked a very few pics- though not very sharp as clicked from my mobile with the battery dying out.  

The lovely roads of Khandala, I get nostalgic about this place- this was the path I took on my first ride.

Cut between two:

Glimpses of the huge lake

A view such as this could sooth the most confused mind.

Couldn't help stopping every now and then to look back at the serene view left behind.

Was a very short trip, hence nothing much to narrate either- but in the end it was worth the time. Though not much, but a small extended album HERE

Driving/Riding directions: Mumbai-Vashi-Panvel-Khopoli-Khandala-Lonavla. Once you reach Lonavla take right from the main road with the board pointing to Amby Valley. Just keep going and take left from the statue of Shivaji Maharaj. Carry on through the crowded market till you hit a fork- take the right one and keep going till you come across a very narrow road which goes straight and a right turn, take the right and just keep riding till you hit Pawana.
