Bangalore to Birur Travel

I got an opportunity to travel with my friends to Birur from Bangalore, it was few weeks back. The distance from Bangalore to Birur is around 215kms. Since the travel journey was accompanying with well known friends so there was/is no doubt about fun trip on the way. We took our own time to reach there. This trip planning was since two months and finally got to go and reach over there. We traveled by a car toward Tumkur road and diverted to a different left direction to reach another well known place called Shravanbelagola and Hassan route. 

The road was toward Tiptur (famous for coconuts) by taking it right direction, and reached Birur after few hours. Since the journey was in the night time thus unable to take much scenery photos. Whatsoever, it was a night journey and nothing to enjoy beauty scenes around except the nature's darkness and a silent atmosphere. We had to stop the car on the way to enjoy the tea, some snacks and relax.

Sound sleeps while travel journey

I was once enjoying travel as I used to travel and roam often by bike, bus, car, train and flight etc. and later stopped to travel often due to a different job assignment and commitment. I had traveled in various transport mode as stated above for a short and long distance viz. Bike, Car, Bus, Train and even Flights etc. that some of them written on my blog posts.

If you are looking for information on how to travel, or travel tips, or the best way to travel, or tips for sleeping while travel etc. then read this post. I am just writing it as knowledge sharing. I had traveled in a Flight's first class seat couple of times where it has enough comfort to sleep like a bed-button type but it didn't worked well for me even sleeping for just one hour as well, while the journey was for more than four hours despite of tired of luggage and local travels to reach Airport etc. 

I tried in a luxurious and comfort AC buses for a long travel with semi-sleeper or seat with comfort like semi-bed type but it also doesn't worked well. The next one is the car, yes, the SUV also didn't worked it for me to get sound sleeping, so, no comment about a bike and sleeping upon travelling for either personal or holidays or vacation etc.

From Melbourne with Love

Each city has its own glory and has created history in the World to remember for a long time for its residents or visitors or lovers, Melbourne city is one of them. How it has formed? To be frank, I know only few things about Melbourne city than Australia or other locations. Herein Melbourne, one is famous Cricket ground (MCG, as Cricket lover) and the next few are as below.

You may read the history of Melbourne city and other detail for your information.

How much you know about Melbourne:

Melbourne is a European name

Melbourne born in around 1810

Melbourne Town Hall is one of the famous and historical one.

Multicultural cities of the world

It is one of the famous tourist places, warm hospitality and full of luxury

This city is also famous for social, educational, sporting and cultural activities

Kulin Nation is called for Wurundjeri, Boonerwrung, Taungurong, Djajawurrung and the Wathaurung.

Up to date Tourism assistance, entertainment, leisure, technology updates.


Building Melbourne:
Princes Bridge, is one the construction which was proposed to build on 22nd April 1840, a company was assigned to build a bridge across the Yarra River despite controversy among counselor members taken place for a different location while planning for it. However, it was built as finalized.

First land sale in Melbourne city:
It was on 1st Jun 1836, Governor Bourke authorized to sell first land (Crown) in Melbourne city with subdivided in to twenty allotments which administrated by Robert Hoddle, and it was said to purchaser that it has to be built the home within 2 years. Apart from highest price paid for the land in different area, but the lowest price paid for the land in particular area of Melbourne become ‘Golden Mile’ called highest priced real estate within short of span.



Second land sale in Melbourne city:
Just five months after the first land sale for the residence / commercial purpose, in Nov 1836, the second land sale taken place. Again within short time, the land value increased in Melbourne city, specially for North West corner of Swanston street and Flinders street which paid by John Batman.

As per survey during that period, once the residents used to think about the location as merely a part of town or village since the province looks like home here and there with few houses, tents and sheds scattered in one or two. The traffic has to be suspended due to chain of waterlog, shallow gullies and ruts on the street.

Melbourne was a province of New South Wales since the beginning. Later on, Melbourne became incorporated town in 12th Aug 1842 with four wards. Andrew Russell was elected as First Alderman for six years term, Henry Condell was elected as first Mayor of Melbourne, and Charles King selected as Town Clerk in Dec 1842.

Melbourne Town Hall was completed to build in 1870 despite few issues upon its construction including labor shortage and proposal of a different location after finalization etc. It was built and officially opened during 9th Aug 1870 by his Excellency Governor of Victoria Lord Viscount Canterbury.


Entertainment in Melbourne:
The Regent Theater was first opened in 1929 incorporated with Plaza, now it is Sunset Boulevard since 1997 as it was under legal issue with MCC and other controversy earlier.

Now, we got to go with various mode of entertainments in Melbourne, Australia and unlike those days just with movie/film and circus etc.


Gold discovery effect in Melbourne city:
The discovery of Gold in Victoria during 1850s had a remarkable effect on the growth of Melbourne city; it was looking like a desert due to people leaving from Melbourne and tried to settle down in Victoria. Many foreigners used to arrive by sea and some of them happy and few of them disappointed on Gold business and returned back. The same story for a different natural source might happen over there.

Go anywhere and stay for less, from Airbnb

I am actually one of the travel lovers and would like to roam all over the world. I had been too few foreign countries beside local trips in India. The International trip was to Singapore (tour visit), Brunei (tour visit), Bahrain (tour visit), UAE (tour visit), Saudi Arabia (for work), and Kuwait (for short-term work). These all happened few years back and would like to still roam in India and other foreign countries when time permits. However, I won't give up to travel anywhere in the future.

When I recall the past, some of the best trip in India was, Shimla, Jammu, Sri Nagar, Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Munnar, Goa, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mysore and other small and less known tourist places, on.

Wherever we go, the important one other than travel is of unique accommodation and suitable food, or boarding and lodging or bed and bread beside a wonderful sightseeing, experience and remembrance for many years as I recalled this one. I used to see trip photos which was taken long back to recall the older excitement and happy days. Still you can enjoy it, and age doesn't matter to go around. 

There are few travel companies that assist online for such trip and to get unique accommodation with lesser price. One of them is Airbnb. All these fun together, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 34,000 cities and 190+ countries. Why don't you utilize this facility?

To avail the facilities at Airbnb and its booking through online or from a mobile phone, you can visit Airbnb booking. I too have selected few foreign location and two local locations as follows.

Ireland: This is one of the best places to visit due to various reason and one of them is naturally beautiful. It has various sightseeing and soft people around.

New Zealand: You can either visit Australia or New Zealand which is great to be there as long as you would like to realize natural rich atmosphere.

Luxemburg: International travelers never forget to enjoy the beauty of Luxemburg. This is one of the best hospitality and tourist places in the world which real traveler never misses the opportunity to enjoy.

Kodaikanal: Although it is famous location in India for coolest place and try to stay over there during Summer, this is one of the best location in southern India to experience lush green and hill station with beautiful atmosphere.

Hyderabad is actually a different city to visit, it is unlike some peace and quiet tourist location but it is a city which contains some of the historical places, architecture, mixed with nature and most importantly growing IT sector which called Silicon Valley of India.
