It all started with my north trip, I went to Ladakh in last June. During that trip, we touched the north most part of India. I enjoyed the trip a lot and was eager to have such kind of experience again. I started to look into south Indian cities/places and marking them on the map. While marking those places gave me the thought of a coastal trip to India which would cover more than 5000 km.
As I was planning a trip of this scale, it needed a thorough research on the challenges we would face in terms safety, money, health, accommodation. It took me almost 3 months to come up with a decent plan and fortunately was able to arrange a companion to accompany me on this trip.
Me, My friend and My Royal Enfield started the journey from a coastal city named Valsad (Gujarat) on 15 of December. The plan was to complete the trip and reach Kolkata in 15 days. This travel would leave a "V" mark on the Indian Coastal line which would cover almost all the major cities lying on the Indian Coastal belt.
After completing this journey, I was very curious to share my thoughts and experiences with others. Any journey plan would start with arranging accommodations and so was mine. But the tricky part here was that I wanted to keep the expenses as low as possible. It all came down to carrying our own tent set up and camp wherever we could find open areas to stop at in the night hours.
