This was the longest trip yet attempted in India. But the latter half of the trip was expected to be easy as Aparna and Pranav could be left at Aparna's aunt's place where Aparna's parents were expected to be present as well. The group was the same as the last trip - Pranav, Manoj, Aparna and Manoj's mum.
We took the Hyderabad Express leaving Pune at 4:30 pm. We did not give Avomine to Pranav. AC II tier seems increasingly noisy for Pranav and he did not sleep well in the night. Apart from that, the journey was uneventful.
We checked into the hotel and after breakfast headed for sight seeing. Pranav was fine during the trip. In the afternoon, we went to Aparna's aunt's place for dinner.
Spent the morning in Qutb Shahi tombs. Pranav ate a "butta" and was quite happy with himself. The monument was deserted, just like the way Pranav likes. In the afternoon, we took a long (3 hr) drive to Warangal. Everything went smoothly.
We took a taxi to Ramappa Temple. The rond was one-lane and the driver was very rash. Once we reached there, we gave Pranav half an Avomine as a precaution. The return trip was incident free. In the afternoon, we took an auto to check out the city sights.
We took the taxi back to Hyderabad and spent the afternoon with Manoj's friend and took the Falaknuma express to Bhubaneshwar. Since this was AC I, Pranav slept very well through the night.
Reached Bhubaneshwar at around 11am. After checking into the hotel, we visited a couple of museums. Relatively easy day for us.
We spent the morning visiting the temples and the afternoon visiting the Dhauli stupa. All in auto. Pranav was quite happy today.
Today was a bad day for Pranav. It is likely due to the fact that he didn't go potty for over three days. He threw a pretty bad tantrum at Udayagiri caves. Once we got back, we managed to get him to go potty. We tried our luck at the zoo, but crowd there got on Pranav's nerves and he was irritable most of the day.
We took an Innova to Konark today (via Puri). The road was bad and the driver drive a bit rashly. Pranav threw up as soon as we pulled into Puri. After a break and half an Avomine, we drove to Konark without any further incidents. Pranav rested in the hotel while we checked out the monument in turns.
We pre-emptively gave half an Avomine for today's journey. That ensured the 2.5hr drive to Satpada went incident free. Pranav and Manoj's mum stayed in the room while Manoj and Aparna took a cruise on Chilka Lake.
We pre-emptively gave half an Avomine for today's journey. That ensured the 3hr drive to Bhubaneshwar went incident free. We took a room for a few hours and got on the train back. Again AC I class helped a lot.
Aparna and Pranav spent rest of the vacation at Aparna's aunt's place.
