Day-2

My sincere apologies for the delay in this travelogue, got the pics yesterday from my friend.

Got few pics from him, will post pics from each day:

On our arrival at Mumbai early morning we hired prepaid taxi from outside the Mumbai central for our hotel Milan International.

Started for local site seeing at around 1-2PM, inquired for full day local taxi's but due to steep quotes stayed away from them. Firstly we went to Juhu beach then to Gateway of India, Marine drive and some local shopping at Linking road.Thank god we missed all the action of Azad Maidan quite narrowly.

Here are the pics of Mumbai site seeing below:

Day-3

We started our journey towards Shirdi from Mumbai by early morning via Malshej Ghat, we took few hours of break at MTDC resort. Very lovely place to enjoy in monsoons.

Below are few pics from Malshej Ghat:

After spending some time here we started our journey towards Shirdi by 3-4PM and managed to reach there by 10:00PM. Searched for a hotel and got one very easily at reasonable price.
