Goa - Bengaluru (Bangalore)

We boarded our train late evening on Day 3, it was approximately a 15 hour journey and we reached Bangalore the following day. We hardly had a few hours in hand before catching our traing back to Chennai the same day night. even before the train landed we started making plans for the few hours we had - the plans ranged from Shopping to Wonder la (theme park) , jus' chilling out ...

We checked into a budget hotel (Pawana) which was close to the Yeshwanthpur train station. After refreshing ourselves and hogging our lunch we decided to go shopping as a visit to the theme park seemed impossible with our limited time in hand.

We shopped at Commercial street and one other place (I don' really remember the name)where I got a nice T-shirt and Alladin pants :) Later on, we walked to the nearby Garuda Mall did a little bit of Window shopping , snacked and had fun at the horror house - was atleast scary enough for me *sigh*

Before we set to get back to our hotel to back the stuffs we shopped we planned to drop by Amoeba - a sports bar where we decided to play a game of bowling and chill out for sometime :)

Oh yea, how can I forget those yummy patries at Barista :p

We had to get back , as it was time for our train back home - This is when we were at our adventurist best , we lost our way back to the hotel thou' we knew it was close to the bus terminus we didn't really know which side of the terminus it was . It took us a whole 30 mins of walking around and a 5min. journey in an auto to get back to our hotel :) (Thanks krithi for reminding me to add the adventure part ;))

What a trip it was , each one of us had so much fun in our own way :)

You seem to have touched the major shopping destinations of Bangalore in the few hours you had..

Regarding the nameless street, it could be the Brigade or MG Road if it's between Commercial street and Garuda mall.

I would have been surprised if you made it to the Wonder La :) It's usually a day long activity..

@Ramana

With so many shopaholics how can we miss checking out the shopping destinations , thou' we didn't really buy much ;)

Yup, it was Brigade road :) .Lol, we could have probably made it to Wonder La as our train was only late night but couldn' due to lack of proper transportation *sigh*
