So after travelling up the Western Ghatts through the mountains we took a 9 hour bus journey to Bangalore, which is one of the craziest cities I've been to in India, and then a 13 hour train journey to one of our target destinations Hampi. It was definatly NOT what we expected! after travelling around the cities and towns of India Hampi was a welcome break from dusty roads and extremely busy city and town centres.

Hampi is famous for its temples and the amazing rock formations that surround the area. We stayed across the river from the main town and after a 9 hour bus journay and a 13 hour train journey we were gladly met by the first person who offered us accomodation across the river. We stayed in mud huts for 3 pound a night and they had a restaurant attached that over looked the river with temples in view.

Hampi has got the feeling of Goa, is really laid back and you can easliy lose a day just doing nothing! there is a local resevoir that everyone goes to for swimming and we rented scooters for the day to have a look about. On our last day we took a Tuk Tuk tour of some of the temples, which are pretty amazing to say the least (Check the photos below 😊 ) and packed our bags ready for our last stop in India for Christmas . . . we are heading back to Goa 😊
