Life never happens the way you planned.
.
This is a story when i first travelled to cooorg for a trekking experience with a trekking company named (Get Beyond Limits - www.getbeyondlimits.com)
an overnight tiresome  journey is welcomed by a beautiful homestay and a cloudy pleasant weather . Coorg is beautiful with all its glory for a hill station . trekking through the galibeedu hill was party scary , party exciting experience . scary because the whole path was filled with leeches and it was my first time encountering leeches . exciting as it gives a great view with a wild adventure .

The next day of the trek me and my friend decided to travel to mangalore out of the blue as we need to have the food. after 4 bus changes and a drastic weather change of pleasant chill to moist heat we reached Mangalore , had the best ghee roast prawns and fish at gilimanjaro and desert at the famous pabbas we traveled to mulki as we came to know from a friend that we can do kagaking in just few km away. After reaching mulki, we called it a day .

The next morning we walked to the kayaking (kayakboy) place and did an hour of peaceful kayaking to a nearby beach and spent some splendid time there . its such a beautiful clean beach , i felt like staying the whole day . but yeah no time .
Later that day we traveled to UDupi as there was another plan stuck to our mind to see the St. marys island . my friend has been there but i haven't . i got excited for the name of island as i have never been to an island before. 
After few failed attempt to reach on time for the ferry, we got to know about the private ferry and reached there very late evening and just got to the island 1 hour before the closing time (the time when we have to absolutely get back to the beach )
St. mary is such a peaceful , lovely island . everything is very clean and well kept . the water , the sand , the vibe . its a must visit place if you ever want to see a place to chill.
That night we had some street food and travelled back to Bangalore .
This has taught me the experience of how an unplanned trip can be the best way to travel . without knowing what to expect and where is your next destination , it has a different experience to it .
