For most people, there is a fear which pushes us back from going for a solo trip. But believe me, the thing which you regret most after completing your first solo trip will be this same fear which pushed you back so long from getting some of the most memorable experiences of life.
So after more than a dozen of trips with friends and family finally I decided to do a solo trip. It was not an easy decision as I have to overcome my own fear first and then had to convince my parents. So after doing both of these successfully I decided to go solo to Gokarna and Murdeshwar. It was a 2 night and 1 day trip. The 2 nights I will be spending in trains and on the day I will visit Gokarna first and then Murdeshwar. That was the plan.
Gokarna and Murdeshwar are 2 famous beach tourist spots in Karnataka along the Konkan coast. My place is Thrissur in Kerala and there are lot of trains from Kerala passing through these places towards Goa, Mumbai, Gujarat side. But very few had stops in these railway stations. So I booked a sleeper class ticket in Kochuveli - Shri Ganganagar express for saturday, 23rd february 2019 9-50 p.m up to Kumta, a small town in Karnataka from where we get buses to Gokarna.
So at around 10 p.m train reached and I boarded and went to sleep with in half an hour as I already had dinner from home.
The next morning I woke up at 7 to the views of beautiful Konkan railways. It was so refreshing to see the greenish hills and villages all the way.
