Our Little Weekend Trip To Bangalore

22:54:00

Traveling to Bangalore was in our mind from a long time after getting married. And thanks to SBI Bank which has a strict rule to visit the home branch to close your account, hence we got the chance to visit Bengaluru again after almost 5 years. Also this trip was interesting as we were taking a 7 month old son along with us for such a long distance for the first time.
