    Default Baa, Baba & Baby on Bike: Trip Kotli AJK

    Daily working was in progress. I relaxed my back on chair and have a look at calendar placed in front of me. Three days were already highlighted as holiday. Saturday, Sunday and 23 March.

    Kidhar chalain...Kidhar chalain...Bhimber chaltay hain.

    Instantly open Pakwheels and place a query to collect information. Some give Thumbs Up, some Thumbs Down.

    @asifcae bhai nay tu haath kharay kar diyai "yar may gia nai kabhi bhimber... warna zaroor advise deta... may bhe wait kar ra hun kisi kay response ka..... hahahhaha"

    Then @Xoofi jumped in with different venue "Or you can try a different area and go to Kotli, AJK"

    The pic that Sufian attached in his post (GulPur Waterfall) was awesome that taunt me to change my plan and he suggest me two days itinerary. Upon inquiring stay in Kotli he said "We stayed in a quite good hotel named valley view hotel opposite MCB kotli branch"

    What MCB!!!

    I instantly draft a mail to Branch Manager to get contact number and this was Mr. Sarmad Ali Naseem on a distance of 320 KM from me. He provided me desired information and assure hotel booking at very favorable price.

    Now What...its time to pack up.

    Some Teasers not Professional but Sensational.

    Default Witnessed an Accident

    Weather was pleasant, Excitement was at peak but with a little fear to cover 320 KM in a day keeping in mind all hurdles during the journey. Anyways we exit Lahore very fast due to holiday and there was no rush on roads. We had taken our breakfast with us and plan was to stay after Gujranwala and we are on our plan.

    When bypassing Gujranwala we witnessed a road accident that was funny as well.

    As I am so vigilant on roads especially if family's life depends on your driving. While going towards Wazirabad a heavy truck was leading us and I and other bike rider with two old women behind him want to overtake that truck. I saw in right side mirror that a Suzuki Mehran is coming very fast that was driven by two young boys so I decided not to overtake while other man overtake so carelessly. Boys pushed breaks to its end and car was Zig...Zag...Aeeeeekh...Dhuuuzzz...Dhrumm.

    Next scene was "Car is on green belt and biker man is going to his destination cool and calm. He neither look around nor feel any disturbance"
    We catches him after a mile but he was driving so peacefully and didn't react on what destruction has been occurred due to him.

    Mashallah. Great to see you do this with family. I particularly like the idea of that foam piece on the seat.
    Great initiative and many duas specially for the little adventurer with you

    Default Scenery Changed

    Almost half day passed and we passed and passed. As we crossed Khariyan, scene completely changed. Curling road and high crests. But those were not like that in Northern areas.

    Default Thanks to My BABY

    As we crossed Jhelum my baby's cap flew away suddenly. I stop the bike and turn back on same way with anger for such disturbance. Cap was in the middle of road as we got some pace , took it immediately.
    Suddenly I saw direction board in front of me on opposite side that was indicating Mirpur is on Right. I kiss my baby with a smile on my face to show me right path by dropping his cap :-)

    Yes Bro, This is economical but this depends on you and more on your mate. Home cooked food and avoid spending extra cash on snacks almost reduces expense. Also I had availed a good hotel on cheap rate that credit goes to Mr. Sarmad in MCB Kotli.

    That foam piece is self made and used in long trips. As far as little traveler concerns, although he is little but enjoying more than us because he has no worries about cash, fuel shortage, path lost, punctures and other hurdles.
