Orrisa--->Chilka-Puri-Konark

Went on this bike trip around Chilka lake(largest salt water lake in Asia)Came through the other side where it meets the Sea.Was beautiful and had to tie the bikes to a boat since there was no path to cross this part filled with water.
Was raining in parts and went to Puri .
Amazing place it is.The Jaganath temple was simply fabulous with loads and loads of erotica carved on its outside.And ofcouse the passionate devotes all around.
For a moment I thought I could be immersed in religion cause it was well worth it.
Then the drive to Konark through the mangroove forrests and the beach on other side.
Was a fantastic trip and I loved everymoment of it.But since we didnt have a camera--no photos this time ....

photos would definitely be nice, but i can just imagine the trip from your description. even though the way i see it may not be entirely correct, the important thing is that you had a great time & came back safely!

Sounds like there was a lot to see and appreciate. Somehow, I need to free up my time to do more traveling and sightseeing. But it probably won't happen for at least another year. Not that I don't do any just now; just not enough. :)
