AAA!! not insurance.. Its about a life style!

What is so proud to be a premier member of the American Automobile Association (AAA)?

Its not about some insurance or your car towing… Its all about a life style. What a century of automobile enthusiasm can do to your roads, your roadtrips, your preparation and to your take home experience. Their history first impressed me, their member discounts are unparalleled, and the amount of travel data they have is just mind blowing.

Today I heard over the FM radio that they are giving a sleeping bag for anyone who takes a free quote. I went there to ask one for me as I am just a few days old member. They happily gave me one but thats not all. I wanted few location maps for my future trips and was just overwhelmed with the material given to me by the lady executive in the counter.  It could have otherwise taken many days of my Internet time, don’t you forget your inability to print large paper maps nor how hard it is to compile a handy list of reliable hotels and services.. And not to mention their DMV services, movie tickets, shopping discounts and car rentals..

So I think AAA is not just your car insurance company… AAA is everything about travel… Its about a life style!!!

wheat dosa

add gentle amount of curd and rice flour for the batter to spread smoothly on the pan.. your likes of mirchi and coriander would let it melt in your mouth along with supplementing coconut chutney.

ఉల్లి పకోడీ

చలచల్లని చలి గాలుల్లోనూ ఉడుకుల వేసవి సాయంలోనూ
కాలాతీతం కావ్యోద్దీపం వెచ్చని పచ్చని ఉల్లి పకోడీ
వద్దనగలమా కాదనగలమా వద్దని కాదని వదిళెళ్ళడమా
ముందరి కాళ్ళకు బంధం వెయ్యదె వెచ్చని పచ్చని ఉల్లి పకోడీ.

Bay Area’s best road-trip and my new record 2137 miles, Yey!

Now I know why the American road-trips are a cult. This is one such beautiful trip starting from Bay Area and circling through Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park then back home. The kind and variety of landscapes we have seen are just mind blowing.
From an urban suffocation driving through an agricultural vastness into the world’s entertainment capital that leads into a desert dry-land full of neon ecstasy which sits adjacent to a snowy mountain that makes a huge lake which befriends a deep forest hosting the world’s tallest granite rock that pushes down a slenderly beautiful water fall.. wow.. all in a single trip :)  
Thanks to a beasty Ford Expedition and its V6 Engine that made it a breeze and my trip a true pleasure with the 8 souls inside sitting comfortably watching the 3D world changing around them all the while :)
These 2137 miles also make my new record roadtrip, overwriting the old 1200 miles :) Yey!
