I was supposed to go home the next day. The distance was about 500 kilometres and for the first time in this journey, I was taking the highway. I wanted to get home before the sun down and there wasn't much on the highway except dust and soot on my face. It was the most traffic I encountered while being in Kerala. The Activa finally got tired when I was about to reach Mysore and it started leaking Petrol towards the end, but overall it stayed strong and successfully climbed slopes it wasn't made to climb.
I reached home after the most wonderful 10 days exploring Kerala. I hadn't imagined that Kerala would feel like a place I knew just after the 10 days I spent there. But, thanks to the wonderful friends I made there and beautiful people I met there. It feels so much more welcoming.
I wouldn't really recommend anyone to go on a road-trip on an Activa but if you've got no other option like me, I say go ahead and get the experience of a lifetime and at the end of it all, you'll only have a stronger spine (both literally and metaphorically).
Moreover, I haven't included the cost of petrol in the budget because the price of fuel and the mileage is subjective. More then 50% of my budget was for food. In fact, the only time I paid for accommodation was when I was in Munnar and that too only because of my poor planning and because of the season.
I hope that no one else has this problem, so If you wish to know more or have any question, do let me know here or at Instagram @aesthetictramp
