Return journey:
Every time we do not maintain good timing, this  time we maintained good timings. We were always on or before time of the schedule. That put us always one step ahead.
We started santragachi at 5am in the morning and touched kona highway in no time. After 15 minutes we touched NH5.Kona expressway and Nh-5 was very good with very good road.We drove straight towards kolaghat .

Good morning

It was cold winter morning hence no traffic. We reached Kolaghat within 45 minutes. Famous sher e punjab was yet to start their business. We thought to have our breakfast at Kharagpur instead.In another 1 hour we reached kharagpur. We had our tea and some snacks. At around 9 AM we crossed Bengal -Odisha border. We crossed Balasore,Markona and then Bhadrak. I was expecting some good hotels at Bhadrak but we could not find a suitable one. Seeing no other option, I had to drive till Bhubaneswar.

It was around 1:30 PM . We took our lunch. The hotel at Bhubneswar was quite nice and clean.We ordered  fish meal.  The food was very tasty. After finishing our lunch , we started our journey again. After crossing Bhubneswar, till Ganjam, the road was almost empty with one or trucks(very slowly munching miles).At around 5 PM we reached Brahmapur.

As it was only 5PM, we decided to go ahead . Our plan was to stop at the popular area when we would feel that we needed rest. But Just after crossing Icchapuram, the road till Srikakulam was almost empty .

As we experienced , while going, this side of Andhra Pradesh did not have any issue during travelling in night.So we drove till Vizag. We reached Vizag at 9PM. We did not book any sea view hotel. It was just near to the NH5. The journey from kolkata to vizag was simply breathtaking with some bad patches in Odisha.

The Vizag was a beautiful city.This beautiful city gave us a good news that Saradindu and Sutapa blessed with a baby boy. It was truly an excellent news.We hurriedly ordered dinner for us. We took hot water shower to reduce the tiredness. Once our dinner was served,we quickly ate all and hugged bed as we were very tiered.

Just after crossing ,vizag we realized that we were hungry. We got a CCD attached to a HP diesel bunk. We took coffee and sandwich(chicken). At around 9:20PM we started our journey via NH-5.At 9:40PM we finally bid adieu vizag. The road became very active during night with lots of dhabas. They were fully operational. We stopped at a family dhaba for dinner. We also refilled our tea flask and ended up buying half dozen of boiled eggs for our journey.

Once we restarted our journey, we never felt that we were alone,Lot of Volvo buses,private cars , govt buses were coming from vizag to different cities. We zoomed past Rajamundry and after crossing Rajamundry, we stopped for a quick tea break. Our next break was at Tuni at around 3AM. It was very cold outside of the car. We took tea and boiled egg.At 3:30AM we started for Vijayawada.

After crossing kondapally fort, we stopped for a tea break.But as I was very tiered, I slept for couple of hours. This power nap gave fresh energy to start our journey again.
