I have a passion for solo travelling. I had been pursuing this interest of mine for quite some time until I realised that it has been long since the entire family went togather on a holiday.
The travelling bug bit me again and I decided to foray and experience into the serene beauty of Coorg and Mysore.
I had been to Mysore and Coorg earlier too in 2016 on a solo trip.
Soon we packed our bags, got tickets reserved and and get set for an amazing holiday tour.
My wife was thrilled enough to hear that we would be visiting Coorg as she had never been to South India earlier. She conveyed the same to her brother and expressed her willingness to join us in the tour and soon we were two families.
We landed at the Bangalore International Airport after a journey of about two and a half hours from New Delhi. Our driver Fairaz was waiting for us at the Airport. We proceeded to Mysore first. Our breakfast halt was a Highway Restaurant called Kadamba. We came across a myriad varieties of Dosas over there which we never heard of in the north including Set Dosa and Neer Dosa. The taste of filter coffee was just awesome.
It took us about 5 hours to reach Mysore. The road between the two cities is just excellent. We had our stay at a place called Gokulam in the Mysore city. Our host Mr. Abhay Singh ji greeted and guided us as to what our itinerary should be for the week.
On the very first day at Mysore, we went to the famous Mysore Zoo. The zoo has a collection of different varieties of various species. We came across the African elephant, giraffe, orangutan, zebra and a lot of other birds and animals. The dancing white peacock was a treat to the eyes. It is one of the best zoos in India.
