The biggest misconceptions about traveling is it needs a lot of money!
There places which are too touristy!?
What if I tell you, there are places within tourist places where you can enjoy hidden gems?
One such gems i discovered in Alibaug! Yes that's right! Alibaug is one of the famous tourist destination, one day getaways and have become over expensive due to the same reason! But this weekend I found something awesome! A small village named Kamath , which opens into one of the famous beaches, kihim beach! But that part of kihim beach is not touristy! When I say that! There are only locals there!
I started with a group of 6 people from gateway of India! Enjoyed my evening at that beach with chai and Kanda pakoda, ate extremely simple yet organically grown farm food! Star gazed all night in a tent at a farm (my friends farm & tents ) around a campfire ! When for a early morning foggy walk on the beach again! Saw a local bull race! Had a filling breakfast of upma and chai( It happens once a month and I was lucky enough to see it) and came back to Mumbai by 2 pm !
That's was one of the best weekends spend by me! Trying to disconnect from the world yet connecting with my soul!
And all it costed me was 1250 RS approx
