Day 1

In the morning I reached Gokarna around 4AM .
I had no option of bus in the morning So i negotiated with rikshawala and made him drop me staright to Kumta beach at 100 Rupees.
I did not care about the luxury and stayed in the hut for 100 Rupees.

Spent the night talking to travellers at the beach, bornfire and playing guitar.

All you need is passion and tricky mind to travel in a budget and at it fullest.
Yes it is definitely possible to travel in karnataka for a whole week just in 2000 Rupees.
You gotta be good at negotiations and communication though :D

Day 2

Surely I had no mood to leave this beautiful beach without swimming in it and I had made friends there already so could not stop myself from spending one more night by the beach :)
Always remember eat in local dhabas rather than cafes.
More tasty and Local test at its best.

Day 3

In the early morning, I left for Agumbey. It was long bus ride and good forest journey, so many locals to meet. I reached in the evening and checked in Dodda Mane where you do not need to pay for stay and delicious home made food.

Day 5

Now it was time to go the HAPPY HAMPI , early morning I left from agumbey and it was looooong journey even got to see bit of uduppi while moving to hampi. And reached hampi around 5PM.
Explored the new hampi with my bag with me.
Always heard of 'Hippie Island' So decided to go there by ferry which costs 20 rupees.
Struggled for peaceful stay and in the end found the beautiful place called 'The hidden cafe'. They have put their own tents in mountains and charged me 150 rupees for a day.

Day 6

It was good to know that the guy from my cafe had his Bicycle and he let me use it for free.
Because of it I explored many places like Mandir of hanuman on top, the dam, and cycling on empty roads was fun.
