I hadn’t taken a break from my work for a long time, about 6 months and I was craving for change. I wanted to travel someplace soon. And that place had to be good, I needed the trip to revitalize my spirit, rejuvenate my senses and leave me into a completely different world. Things went as per plan and my parents and my sister decide to visit me at my home in Bangalore. Together we were going first to Ooty, “The Queen of Hills” and then make a trip to Lakshadweep. I was jumping in excitement. After all, who doesn’t want to spend a morning idling by the beach in the middle of a sea on an island. That sounded quite interesting.
But sitting by the beach is not the only reason why I remember my trip to Lakshadweep. Along the journey, both during visit to Ooty and during trip to Lakshadweep, I learnt something valuable. And I will remember those and of course the fun moments.
WHERE THE JOURNEY BEGAN
We started our trip from Bangalore and first travelled to Ooty or Udhagamandalam. The journey was long, extending to 8 hours but we never got tired or bored. On the way there were many interesting things to see and good places to eat:
On Bangalore Mysore highway we had quick breakfast at Kamat Lokaruchi, a famous eat out place in a natural setting. Kamat Lokaruchi is in Ramanagra Village, the site where the famous movie Sholay was shot.
