Driving Tales: Delhi-Mumbai-Goa-Pune (Part 1)

Two women in a car = Wanderlust

Driving from the political to the financial capital of India, and beyond.

What does the packing list for two women going on a vacation together look like? Clothes, sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm, flip flops, etc. But when the women in question are planning to drive by themselves across India for nearly a week, the checklist looks something like this:











As we say, well armed is well begun. Bellies full of anticipation, we set off from Gurgaon on a foggy December morning. The plan was to drive all the way to Mumbai along National Highway 8, then gently saunter along the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea  to Goa – making several stops along the way to fully soak in the ghats, the sea and the local Malvani cuisine – and then wind our way up north to Pune. Some vignettes from the amazing journey in which we spent 6 days on the road, visiting 9 cities and driving for nearly 3000 km.
