This was an easier trip than the last one. It was four days shorter and we got to spend the weekend in between at home.
We took the early morning train to Bijapur. Train was an hour delayed. Pranav was well behaved today. We had no problems in the station or on the train. We reached Bijapur and hopped on an auto to our hotel. We managed this day without avomine.
We toured all of Bijapur on a horse drawn carriage. Pranav was initially very apprehensive about the vehicle. But soon he got used to it and enjoyed the ride. Despite the noise level inside the Gol Gumbaz, he was very well behaved. We had taken all his meals and were feeding him on time.
A 3 hour drive (with half an avomine) brought us to Badami. Then we took turns to see the caves. Pranav just had to endure the drive and he did that pretty well.
We took a day long tour of Pattadakal and Aihole and decided to do it on an auto. The vehicle was painfully slow. But Pranav liked it and we managed it without Avomine. He was quite well behaved and let us enjoy the sites.
A 4 hr drive brought us to Hampi. We managed that with half an Avomine. After that we took turns to tour Hampi. Pranav was ok on the drive.
We started Hampi sightseeing on an auto. Pranav was happy for the first couple of hours and then stared his tantrum. We quickly moved him to the hotel and took turns to see the sites. We took a late night train to Bangalore. The train was an hour late. But Pranav was very well behaved in the station. He did not show any signs of unease.
Spent at Aparna's parent's place in Bangalore
Took a taxi ride to Mysore (with Avomine). It took longer than expected. We were to see Somnathpur enroute. We changed the plans to directly head to Mysore and leave Paranav at the hotel. So Pranav just had to endure the taxi ride and he did that pretty well.
Pranav stayed with Aparna in the hotel while rest went to see the palace and the museum. We then took a short taxi ride to Srirangapatna. We then took turns to see the town.
Pranav stayed at the hotel all day while Aparna and Manoj visited Melkote and Shravanabelagola.
3hr taxi ride with half an Avomine got us to Belur. After that it was back to taking turns and sight-seeing.
4 hour drive brought us back to home in Bangalore. We took the late night train back to Pune. We had given Avomine for the car ride. None for the train. We cancelled the flights and booked the train instead after the disaster in Nagpur
Safely reached Pune in the evening.
