April 2006, that was when I wrote the first post on Payaniga – about my first ever bike ride to Shivanasamudra. When I published that ride log, I never thought that one day ride would take me on a such a long journey.
On this long journey, I got to know many like minded people, met some wonderful people, had a chance to travel with them, got inspired by them. And not to forget the readers who have supported all along. I am thankful to all you wonderful people out there.
To mark this milestone, I will publishing five guest posts in the week. Read along the stories by fellow travellers which will follow. (I can imagine how these five guys are cursing me for all the pestering I did to get these articles).
And on a side note, along with writing here in English I have started Kannada version of Payaniga too. In case if you know Kannada and like to read the travelogues in Kannada, head over here.
Update: Here are the guest posts –
- On the Chola trail – Lakshmi Sharath
- The King and I – Radha Rangarajan
- Kashmir, in slow motion – Harshad Sharma
- The Ancientness of Orchha – Arun Bhat
- Rafting at Kaudiyala, Uttarakhand – Mridula Dwivedi
