Bike Trip to Pondicherry

Key moments of this trip.

1.My friend recently got this new bike(Thunder Bird -bullet) and we did a bike trip to Pondicherry on it..

2.The best part of the ride is you go along the sea on this East Coast Road.The sea is always to the left throughout the trip and its amazing.

3.I got a Buddha tatto on my upper arm.

Enough of my crap let me put the photos.

The beach on the way .













This is the view you get for the whole 200kms ride.















Reflections-A cellular tower and homeless people taking a dip in a pond.










Abandonment-A ruined car and a water tanker.











The bike barren land and sea.....which is faar away..

how many tattoos do you have?

i always thought of a pond as way smaller than the one in the 3rd photo and without rocks. did they know you took their photo?

@Patty: I just have this one Buddha tatoo now.But I want to get more in the future.Yeh this was not a typical pond.Its some small waterbody formed by rainwater or something I guess and yeh they knew I took their photo.........

@Nicola:Ahn a great trip infact.....Thanks.

Great pictures, Vathsan! I really enjoyed this post :D

"Enough of my crap let me put the photos." I like when you dish out and share your thoughs and such. I don't think its crap...


Ohh, and I'd like to see your new tattoo- if you don't mind sharing...

@foto addict:Not at all.I have been having that tatto in mind for quite sometime.Sure will post it soon.
Reflection is a good one and yeh it was a surprising photo.We were going at breakneck speed wen suddenly I saw that place and we passed it in a flash but turned the bike back to take that photo.
