We started late on Thursday morning. For those who know the route from Mangalore, it is almost a straight shot from Mangalore once you take the National Highway 66. We were an hour into the drive that we saw the name ‘Soans Island’ plastered along a few signposts (near Kundapura). Curious, we asked around, fiddled around with our GPS, lost our way a few times, and yet reached there eventually.Unbelievably, it was literally an island resort. We parked outside, along the river and sat in a boat, (Yes, a boat!) with our bags which took us to our destination. Our destination was a house built with a couple of rooms. And the rooms opened into the river.
