Gokarna to Goa by car

Started the day (23-Sep-2011) with a visit to the famous Shiva temple at Gokarna. Good start to my birthday.

Today’s journey started off with good roads. Me like.

From Gokarna, we headed towards Karwar where we had breakfast, and stopped by the lovely empty Karwar beach:

And passed over River Kali:

The bridge over River Kali continued to become a road which can only be described as cutting through a hill:

And continued on in a beautiful road:

When we reached Palolem beach in Goa, we celebrated with dishes made out of egg (we love egg):

And then headed out to Mapusa where we had accommodation to stay for the weekend.

It was hard to decide whether driving all day long was a major downer to be doing on my birthday or being on a road trip and having fun is what exactly I wanted to be doing on my birthday. Heh. Either ways, end of the 5-day 900+km road trip for now. Time to chill out in Goa!

P.S. It turns out my birthday also happens to be the International Freelancers Day. Go figure.
