Konkan coast to Coromandel coast - BigIndianTrip #1 Plans, Actions and How it all happened!

14th Oct 2017

How does it feel to say that you have not visited Tajmahal or the capital of your own country but you have made it to Europe? Made me feel shame telling this to a stranger. And that kindled a plan! And what do I want to do for this birthday? The best thing that I can gift to myself is a trip. But place? why not cover India? That sounded interesting to me. To make things spice up I added few things,

1.Make this trip a solo backpacking.

2.Do not plan anything ahead! Just have aim of keep going for few more days :-)

3.Why do you need to know Hindi to visit North? Break the Jinx when you have a smart phone.

4.How much can you trust IRCTC Tatkal? Lets test!

5.Why to spend much on stays when you can stay at a travelers hostel and meet fellow backpackers?

The trip was amazing with lot of memories and learnings, did not expect this much from a trip but in the end it was one awesome ride.

Intense travel covering from Konkan coast, Kerala to Coromandel coast till, Chennai. Visited 9 cities across 8 different states in 17 days.

I am planning to blog this trip as a series - with things that I been through, how to save time, plan locations, stay easy without burning much from the pocket.
