Day 1

So it was a 5 min immediate and hasty solo trip plan for the coming long weekend , with a limited cash and long travel hours , i felt somewhere that it shouldnt be that spontaneous but which turned out to be one of the most beautiful memory of my life :') Its the day when i reached gokarna , it was a solo trip for me as i wanted to get to a secluded place , away from a monotonous hectic routine , it was a long long journey after which i reached to gokarna at 7 in the morning, and i was going to stay at SANSKRUTI RESORT . Since my checkin was at 11am , i decided to take a trek on the om beach road to NAMASTE CAFE ( alongside the om beach ) . After walking for 4.5 kms , i finally reached there and had and sumptuous breakfast facing the beach . Reading , running , yoga were the activities which were commonly practiced there . Genuinely i felt i should blaze up and henceforth i asked the cafe owner from where i could score some stash , giving a weird expression he somehow convinced me that gokarna is not that shady x

I came back to my resort and passed out , evening was very beautiful indeed and therefore i decided to swim in my beautiful resort and then i decided to go to CAFE 1987 where one of my friends suggested that we could score stash . As soon as i entered the cafe ( alongside kudle beach ) i got the vibe of a hippie , 2 amazing indian hosts were taking care of the foreign guests and the place was at atmost peace and calm , this was the most simple yet beautiful cafe i've ever visited. Sadly they also couldnt get me a score so i began to just stroll on the beach and also clicking some photographs and listening to some good music , i had a couple of beers , chilled with a group of indian , israeli , french and portugese people , i had a really great time as it became dark and eventually couple of beers had their effects turn by turn so i decided to go back to my resort and pass out !

Day 2

So i got up really late at 11 am , again i did go to the kudle beach and to the same cafe 1987 for some brunch , later i went to almost all of the cafes , tasted some real real good food , saw people play good music and also people somking up that too in front of the cops ! I was like holy mother of god , what is this place , I suddenly started realising that stash wasn't important for me to chill here , maybe this was a place which had the awesomestt vibe with a genuine tribe , i also saw an australian lady leaving all of her job , work behind , came there to follow her passion of collecting lucky stones and making lockets , bracelets out of that , she also has a Facebook page dedicated to her work named "LeMa arts" . She was an insipiration to me in many ways . After that i finally scored some hash from a cafe ( name cannot be discussed) and then i blazed up , sat alone on the rock near the beach , and it was sunset one could never forget , it was peaceful and trust me i just cannot explain it :') , meanwhile I ordered some fish , squid ( please try squid ) and scribbed some random stuff on my diary and which according to me was the stuff which people made up and are for lunatics , first time ever i was loving the fact that writing helps expressing you in a very very good way . So after the sunset , i enjoyed some live music at Paradise cafe and then eventually left for my resort and blazed up and passed out as usual . It was a hip hip dayyyy

Day 3

"I got the hippie look from me " , the next day as i woke up were the thoughts running in my mind in front of the mirror . Today was my last day and i was kinda sad , still again i left for the kudle beach walking alone (3.5 kms ) . So i went to the cafe at the last of the beach ( idk the name ) , where people were blazing up , and reading , i wanted to complete the book which i've been reading for so long , so enjoying the live reading and the beach vibes , i got involved with the nature and the scenic beauty of the place , there was no commotion, just healthy discussions between friends all over the world , people playing poker and blazing , it was really like the place i wanted to be at , and i suddenly it came to my subconscious mind that this is the place ! Yes this is :') and its quiet difficult for me to make you guys understand but I actually got addicted to the beach vibe and it was an emotional scene for me when it came for me to go off that culture for i dont know how long but yeah , obviously i still gotta go to some new place and explore. :)

Happy trippin fellas
