Day 1

So we reached hampi by an overnight bus journey from Goa..
It was a tiring journey,but once I set afoot on hampi I was transported to some other time..
I had already booked a room in Rasta home stay.. 1km from the hippie island
The hippie island is on the north side of river tungabhadra which we crossed on a ferry..
For our first day we decided to take a laid back approach and hired a scooty and decided to visit the sanapur lake and the waterfall
The sanapur waterfall is a beautiful sight .. with rocks offering thrill to divers and place to laze around.. the vibe is altogether a different one.. the coracle rides are not to be missed. They are a part of the hampi experience
There is a ot of scope for offroading..
The hippie island cafes offer great place to sit back and relax in the evening with live jam sessions and impromptu gigs creating a nice little nook for forgetting the outer world
No connectivity came as a boon for me..
