I'm on a touring spree thats fascinating and I love to share it with you. Traveling has opened bigger doors in my life that taught me patience, determination and responsibility. It may sound unrealistic but one has to experience it to believe it. Every place I reach has something new that takes a place deep in my heart and I wish it could also dwell somewhere else. Thus, this blog was created.
You may find experiences and photos as you dig deeper into this website and I hope you get hooked by some of the content. This is my first attempt of such a kind and I greatly rely on your comments, so let me know whatever runs in your mind. Make use of the comments section at the end of every post, or you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was not in town for a day and did not check the latest updates in xBhp ultimately. The forum was undergoing maintenance with lot of functional and cosmetic make over. I logged on this morning and a flashy new xBhp with a blue theme was right in front of me. I had always been for the neutral attitude of blue and liked the theme without any second thought. The small buttons and menu bars were well done. The huge xBhp banner on top had changed. It was... Hey, wait a minute. That guy in the second photo is me! Yes, ME! ME! ME! Wow! I was in a hell load of surprise. The photo had been worked upon and used up in the banner.
I was astonished by what I was looking at! I recognized the guys in the left pictures as well. They are from Bangalore and we were on a ride together to Yercaud. As for the picture in which I was there, it was shot when the Chennai xBhp gang made a trip to Yelagiri. Kiran was the guy who shot this picture. I had jumped off the wall when Kiran clicked the picture at the right moment, lying down on the road.
I'm not sure how many consider this as news, but it is an honor for me to see a picture with my contribution on xBhp's banner.
A big thank you to Kiran who shot the picture and to Sunny who has got the picture at that spot.
