As a traveller, I always ignored South India because of my love for Mountains. This time I wanted to try something new and it was then this idea kicked off in my mind.

I didn't want to travel solo, so I took My Bike with me and it turned out to be an epic Road Trip of My Life.

(I live in Hyderabad but started this journey from Mumbai)

Day 4

Day 4: Ganpatipule to Tarkarli

My initial plan was to cover Malvan and Tarkarli beaches which are on the way to Goa and I had two days stay in Goa but as they say "you are never alone on roads".

I met two riders (Anirudh & Jitesh) on the way who was heading to tarkarli, I joined them and thought we will have a break for drinks and some lunch. But as soon as we reached Tarkarli, I fell in love with this beautiful beach and decided to ditch Goa and stay at Tarkarli that day. Trust me it was all worth it.

Day 5

DAY 5 : Scuba in Tarkarli and Drive to Goa!

Unplanned things sometime turn out to be some beautiful moments to remember. My first SCUBA Dive in Arabian Sea !

Day 7

DAY 7: Gokarna

My second day in Gokarna, this day again turned out to be one of the best days. I stayed at Zostel which is a traveller's hostel and a best place to stay. I met few other travellers who were planning for a night trek to paradise beach which is a small beach in Gokarna and used to be one of the happening place for hippies.

Paradise Beach is a hidden beach and can be reached by trekking for 30 mins, passing through OM and Halfmoon Beaches. One can experience whole beach lit up with fireflies here which is a spectacular view. Unfortunately I couldn't click any pictures there.

After a ride of two weeks I had to stop my journey in Madurai due to some political conflict in Tamil Nadu.

Every journey will have good and bad times. I had the same, but in the end all you take back is the memories which will stay and you will cherish those forever.

This is MY Journey, Solo Ride of 3142 KM Across 5 States !
