I had a weekend, wanted to relax and enjoy a bit. As a Chennaite, the first place that comes to mind is Pondicherry. So, I packed and left!
To start of the trip, I took an early morning stroll in the Promenade Beach!! Such a beauty!! I stayed at a traveller's hostel, 'Gurukulam' near the White town. A very nice and friendly place to stay.
Then I headed to Baker's street for some delicious baked breakfast.
With a happy tummy, I visited Auroville (Auto charges Rs. 300 one-way) . It was such a serene place with an inspiring idea behind it! It captivated me so much that I promised myself to go back there again and stay for atleast a week.
The rest of the day I spent roaming around the white town, clicking pictures of the colourful buildings, Scared Heart of Jesus Basilica, Immaculate Conception cathedral, French war memorial and Old Light house. All these are very closely located near Promenade beach.
