Mangalore - NOT Balgalore's ugly step child...

A travel blog entry by gojoadventures


Staying at Poonja International Hotel. I swear I'll never take a local bus in India again. It was a long, painful, ride, stopping everywhere to pick up and drop up people. Seats were hard, and barely big enough for a child's bottom. Roads were rough and winding; People were puking into bags and out the window in front and behind us. Drivers were …

A travel blog entry by gibbslocates

She jumped when she saw me. Probably at the thought that some fat Welshman had literally been lying on top of her for some time.
