We wanted to spent two days in Chennai also, we are so close, but decided to cut short the travel as the kid has holiday homework to do 📚. Besides the capital Chennai, the state of Tamil Nadu has few other interesting towns, will club them together for another trip. Here’s the first cut, we are covering a circular distance of over 700 km approx. (excluding the travelling within the towns); let’s go…🚙💨
