People look for all the touristy places when they come to a new state or country. And when the country is India, most are in search of a usual Rajasthan or Kerala, but that isn't the traveling that describes me! Because, all I need is a place (or few places!) which have been unexplored and untouched by what we, history students, call hypocritically “capitalist greed”, in layman terms.
I don’t usually search for a five (or even three) star hotel, but for a shack by the beach or a village Homestay around some kind, rural inhabitants, all invisible on the exteriors of a map! So, out on an adventure-escapade (or adventurescape!) to Karnataka, I started my journey from the capital, since it’s so accessible (rolling-my-eyes-sarcasm-intended!) and traveled on the most local transport you can imagine in the southernmost and rural-most parts of India.
