2017 was my most traveled and outdoor-spent year. I had decided to explore more, discover new destinations , at least one new place or experience every month. And I am glad I was successful; In fact I ended up spending so much time outdoors that I couldn't pen down my travel stories and epic journeys. Better late than never, and flashbacks are important as well!
So here it goes -
January - Kumta to Gokarna Coastal Beach Trek:
Started my first long weekend with a Coastal Beach trek. After lot of failed plans, booked this trek with TrekMates, luckily there was only 1 seat left and without wasting any second, just booked it. Gokarna was anyway in my bucket list, and a range trek along Arabian Sea Coast seemed pretty exciting. Started from a small town Kumta, in Uttara Kannada and reached Gokarna crossing 11 virgin, scenic beaches, hiking through cliffs, and breathtaking views of Arabian Sea. It was not just another trek for me, but a journey I will remember for lifetime. Imagine chilling on a beach, without knowing the name of the beach ????
The best part of the journey was that I started alone, but came back with a bunch of friends.
