I recently made a day trip to Amby Valley near Lonavla to give an invited presentation to a company we are working closely with. It was the longest talk I have given in recent memory — just over 1 hour 40 minutes. I covered a wide variety of topics in the digital space. (I will not be able to post the presentation here since much of it was specific to the company.)
This was my second visit to Amby Valley — had made a sightseeing-cum-picnic with a friend’s family about a year-and-a-half ago. The drive is quite scenic once you get on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. It took me 2 hours 15 minutes to reach — left early morning at 7:30 am. (The return journey was a little longer — I left Amby Valley at 7:15 pm and reached home 2 hours 35 minutes later.)
Amby Valley is beautifully done.The only challenge is the approach road once you get off the Expressway. The expanse, the picturesque setting — it feels like a different world. Probably ideal for a weekend home for those who like to get away. I for one haven never been of that sort so I guess it will be a few years probably till I get back to Amby Valley again!
