Coorg Trip

we colleagues had been to a Trip recently to Coorg,Nagarahole,Kushalnagar,Mysore and few other near by places.

Actually our colleagues had decided to hire vehicle but without driver so that we only could drive & enjoy as per our trip.Trip was awesome and memorable in many ways..may be free from regular office work, enjoying nature & outing,pulling others leg, nice drive,enjoyed friends vehicle drive .............

We were able to see a beautiful , nice morning view from Raja Seat in Coorg,excellent golden temple in Kushalnagar,Nice bath in Irpu Falls,a natioal park in Nagarahole.Nice swim and water play in Dubare Forest (but we could not go for Elephant safari as it had closed at 12:30PM),Mysore palace along with food in Mcdonalds & KFC..  

Trip was memorable in couple ways as for the first time I saw actaually witnessed travelling in a vehicle reaching upto 160km/Hr  on Road , thanks to nice highway although its little  risky to reach with that speed ,unless anybody knows driving well & has a nice control over it, thanks to Sanjay.Then Nadeem who knew basics of 4 four wheeler driving, driving with confidence , Sahoo with nice questions & answer session, Shafi for his awesome talk, Sam for his full energy filled inspiration to all, Shashir from his unique style,Pravash with nice causal talk to all of us & especially with shafi ..!

We enjoyed the trip overall..! :-)

Foriegn Notes

From my child hood that is from my primary School i started collecting Stamps.Later as i grew up started collecting variety of coins of our own country India & abroad. In recent years I started collecting foreign notes(Currecny) whenever I get an opportunity ..

Although it requires time & patience and of course interest to post detailed blog of these collections , i thought to post a blog to start with a couple of foreign notes.

I used to ask my close friends if they have these notes or coins ,if they have visted western counties or any country.I am lucky to collect some of them from friend Sandeep who had visted Bangaldesh, Nigeria couple of years back & my younger brother Arvind who got an opportunity to visit US,Korea,Hongkong,UK..

Here are some of the notes.
