The day began at 7 Am as one of us had to head to Chennai, we headed to the bus stand to drop him off. He boarded a bus to Kumta as he had to gradually make it to Mangalore to board his train to Chennai. Since we had nothing to do after that, we headed back to bed only to wake up at 1 PM and headed straight for lunch with our bags. Once we were done we also caught a bus to Kumta as our train(Mumbai Express) was scheduled to arrive at Kumta at 4:57 PM. On arriving at the railway station, we were informed that the train was late and Matsyagandha Express would get there before Mumbai Express but that news didn't bother us as we were going to travel in the unreserved coach. The train finally arrived at 6:30 PM and fortunately had space which we took advantage of and captured enough place for us to sleep.
Kumta was our destination, as this train did not have a scheduled stop at Gokarna Road, that was supposed to arrive at 9 AM but arrived at 11:40 AM. After getting off at Kumta, we decided to have something to fill our stomach and charge our phones at the railway station. In that process we encountered another train that was heading to Madgaon and on checking the train's stops on m-indicator we realized that it would drop us at Gokarna Road but to our dismay it did not stop at Gokarna Road and dropped us off at Ankola.
