Bike Ride to Pondy

Pondicherry or fondly called Pondy is many a times a weekend getaway. My most recent venture to Pondy was for the Pondicherry International Fashion Week about which I've written in my other blog, Fashion Panache. Once before that I decided to ride my bike solo all the way to Pondy, touch its border and get back. That's almost 300km which I covered in 5 hrs. 
I know, its not a great speed, the fact is, I wasn't bothered about the speed. I set out to enjoy the journey, the drive, coz the climate was great - not too hot, not rainy, it was perfect! And ofcourse, I stopped a million times in between to click pictures. 
I just set out without planning, so yeah, my DSLR wasn't with me. All pics are from my dearest Oneplus one!!! Enjoy the clicks!!!!

The serene beach without a single person!

Salt flats..

Same salt flats when the sun has set further!

Auspicious Tamil month of Aadi and the tall cutouts of Gods with serial bulb decor!


An ardent traveler by passion. Being an ex - Art History Teacher, my area of interest especially lies in Nature and Heritage. Visited 85 UNESCO World Heritage sites as of June 2022. I've been listed among the Top 7 Women Travel Bloggers of India, Top 50 in UK. I have been interviewed in a couple of TV Shows, Radio Channels and Events as well. Read more about me and read the testimonials of different brands


  1. I too want to travel solo on my bike to Pondy and Tirupati at least, but haven't found the inspiration yet. This post might just inspire me to. I have traveled from Bangalore to Mysore and Chennai to Kanchipuram, but that's the maximum distance I have done. But that's what is possible with my 100cc bike anyway :)

    Destination Infinity
