It all started with a thought of travelling solo without the comfort of a company. After countless arguments, bickering, convincing and with a promise to update my whereabouts regularly at home, I finally set out on a solo expedition to Madurai – Rameswaram Dhanushkodi - Kanyakumari - Kochi. My trip was nothing less than a roller coaster ride, but the learning I gathered is invaluable.
While I was planning, the main intent of my travel was to see the spectacular Neelakurinji bloom which comes around once in 12 years at Munnar and Kodaikanal. Due to the devastating floods at Kerala, I had to change my itinerary. After re-considering all the options, I quickly switched to an alternative plan with no desire or intention to give up.
Day 1 - Madurai
Day 2 - Rameswaram - Dhanushkodi & Kanyakumari
Day 3 - Kanyakumari & Kochi
I booked a local cab service at Madurai for 3 days along with a driver. Needless to say, the service was impeccable. Their fleets of drivers are fluent in all languages, friendly and helpful. The owner of the cab service company was hospitable and it was because of him I had no fear of travelling solo. I can say, I am fortunate enough for having found a guide/friend during this trip.
