We drove along the sea and saw the best view of our lives. The sea hitting the road all along the way. We were just a few meters above the sea level and the only barrier between us and the sea were the rocks and the railing. It was surreal. Awestruck with the view,we decided to drive further.We reached a a beach called aaravi beach. (One of the best that I have seen). It was just secluded, noone along the beach just some kids from the nearby village playing cricket. There was peace all around and just the sound of the sea and the wind was calling us.
We visited the Diveagar Ganpati temple, which is famous for the gold Ganpati statue that once sat here. It's a cute little temple. The next stop was the Harihareshwar temple which takes about 2 hours to reach. The scenery en-route is simply breathtaking. The journey is a full coastline view drive with some twists and turns of the mountains. You will cross Aarvi beach which also makes you fall in love deeper with the sea and the shore. It's so pretty that you actually feel so proud being a part of this country... Just that we need to take responsibility in keeping it that way. Harihareshwar temple is a 10min walk from the parking area and you can get good idli sambhar and wadas at the restaurants during your walk. The temple is also known as dakshin kashi and a pleasure to visit. The beach here was more crowded and less clean.Well this was the last stop of our getaway and the return journey started. But with a lighter mind and a lot stronger soul.This was the first time ever that I had planned something and taken responsibility from choosing the place to getting all the bookings done and I feel so happy to share the beautiful experience. Traveling and exploring always makes me happy and it sure does something to you. So take out all the fear and travel to explore someplace you have never been before.And BTW there won't be any sort of internet connection there so connect to yourself and people around you in a way you should.
