My life has always been about travel and food. I love to travel to meet new people and binge on food because I am a foodie. Journey to secret destinations and exploring new landscapes, meeting new people and tantalizing the taste buds with some yummy food are always an experience in itself.
It is always my travel that makes me champion and the destinations I have been to are the trophies and the fish cuisines that I have eaten on the beach shacks is what makes me compete with myself always. Since I follow a travel budget of USD 20 or less a day, my journey becomes all more exciting.
My travel plans are always unplanned and I plan on go. The family trip was supposed to be a road trip from Bengaluru to across coastal Gujarat and it got advanced for no reasons, and my leaves were approved and with good 9 days in my pocket, I started towards Western Rajasthan.
So this solo backpacking trip got planned in less than 15 minutes and I got ready in the next half an hour. Packed my bags (missed the Sun-glasses though) started towards National College Metro Station (Bengaluru) without a confirmed ticket around 5:00 PM and then took a metro rail ride till Yeshwanthpur. Found a private bus and checked with the driver “Guru Mumbai na..” he said yes and checked on the number of seats. After some negotiations, he offered a ticket at a fairly good price and yes, I was in the bus. An overnight travel on the lovely roads. I reached Mumbai on Sunday noon. I quickly planned my forward journey from Mumbai to Bikaner along with the stay at Bikaner and Jaisalmer.
