Destination is the only thing we decide and plan. We will never know what's waiting for us, may be the best or may be the worst, we Just need to accept things and handle it accordingly. Travel is all about being smart and patient in any situations and handling it in a way which doesn't affect your peace.

The Backup Plan : Started with a comfortable bus journey from Bangalore to Periyakulam. We reached so soon as the driver we got was amazingly fast. It was a solicitous welcome by the stars, indeed an amazing sight. Then we took a bus (planned to walk though) to reach Kumbakarai base from where the trek starts. Unfortunately, the trek was banned since 15 days. So we had no choice rather than returning. As we thought to walk in this silent road and it happened. It was 8kms walk back to Periyakulam. Then we had a yummy breakfast in a vegetarian restaurant called "Woodlands".
Somewhere between Periyakulam and Kodaikanal : View from a place between Periyakulam and Kodaikanal. The place where the technology is less is the place where the connection is more (with nature). Had a bus journey where the driver should have either watched Fast and furious or played GTA. The way he drove was just too scary. Amazing way to start the backup plan.
