Just this one monument has so much to offer ... While making this tiny sketch, I promised myself that whenever I revisit Hampi, I'll walk till the Vitthala temple (instead of taking the govt open bus), sketch the temple and chariots, hike till the river bed, and give this place the time it deserves.

Sketching, taking sketch-notes, and doodling is one of the best ways to travel. These scraps of information and drawings engage you with the environment, make you really observe details, and create a special link with a place.
Keep an art journal this trip and let me know how you felt :)
What you need to Travel Sketch
