Trip to Bengaluru

16 July 2008 » DB2, Photos, Travel

I just confirmed my trip to southern India. I’ll be in Bengaluru (Bangalore) for about 2 weeks. It’s my first trip to Asia, so I’m really looking forward to it.

The preparations for this trip have been more complex than any other overseas trip I’ve taken. The good new is that once the visa paperwork and vaccinations are complete, the barriers to travel to the region will be much lower in the future.

My trip will finish up the second week of August, which coincides with India’s Independence Day. Apparently there’s a semi-annual botanical show at Lal Bagh that day and for some reason my camera is really good at taking pictures of flowers. :), so there’s always that.

But I’d love to know what else is recommended to do that Friday the 15th, or on the weekends in general. Side trips to Ooty and Kodaikanal have been recommended. Other hints, tips?

Update: Due to the Lufthansa strike, I pushed my trip back one week, and will now be able to attend the IDUG India Forum (Friday morning and all day Saturday) which is taking place right next to my hotel. That looks to be a great opportunity to hear from Curt Cotner and several other DB2 experts. Good stuff.
