Travelogue : Hampi Through My Eyes ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ

I recently traveled to Hampi and I must say I didn’t expect to fall in love with the place so much. It was a perfect road trip(I kept eating while driving as I like to keep myself busy) . I was planning on doing a Travel blog since like forever, but it required proper dedication and time as I wanted to do justice to this beauty. I managed to get some time to myself today. You will know how, at the end of this blog.

Lights, Camera, Action !!!

Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in east-Central Karnataka, India. It is a archaeological site and one needs to be prepared to walk a lot and by lot I mean A LOT!!! If luck is by your side, it won’t be a sunny day and you would love the climate. However, God always plans to test my strength and I had a perfect sunny day by my side(Too sunny and let me set this straight once and for all, I don’t quite like the sun) I was prepared to faint(which I din’t to my surprise.) I actually loved every bit of it . The place was mesmerizing and for once I wasn’t so self obsessed (Err not exactly, I did buy a big hat to protect myself from the sun. It’s a love-hate relationship that we share). ๐Ÿ™‚

Without taking much of your time, I have decided to tell my journey in the form of Picture Story and let you guys decide whether Hampi deserves all the accolades or not.
PS : Do read the captions for each picture.

You will find Palm Trees as your companion while travelling to Hampi. The greenery is always a delight to the eyes <3

I lost the count of the stairs but then you wouldn’t mind it. I believe if I could do it then anybody can!!!

River Rafting if you’re the adventurous kind. This particular spot was the perfect place for finding your inner peace.

Once you enter the site, you can make your own stories of what actually might have happened here years back. For me it looked like the dancing palace (from inside).

This is the view that you would get from the top of the hill(which you just climbed with me)

The Sun Finally decides to set. I love him for that <3

Because I was Happy from all the travelling. It was a bit exhausting but totally worth it. The sleep you get after a hectic day is the most amazing feeling.

I felt refreshed after this trip. I believe to live life to the fullest, one must keep travelling. For one thing, travelling will help you find more about yourself. In this trip I discovered I can survive the sun. LOL!!!

Let me know if you overcame your fear of something in any of your trips. I would love to know if you have any vibrant memory of the same . I am all ears!!! (actually eyes would be more apt) ๐Ÿ˜€

PS: As promised, the reason I got some time for myself is that I am down with fever and actually had to take a day off from office today. If you have read my previous Blog : When Gods Comic Timing is Better Than Yours you would know what started as a joke turned into reality. SIGH!!!

I Heart You All <3

        Last time was before my kids – 14 years! But before that I used to come every year. I’ve seen a lot of the hillsides – shimla, khulu, manali etc. Can’t wait to take the kids over… X

        1. Wow.. So I guess you love hill stations ๐Ÿ™‚ They all are beautiful places. You can give Darjeeling and Sikkim also a try if you haven’t already been there.

    Thanks for being such a good blog friend. It has been a long week of sharing the events of Passion Week: I haven’t been able to thank all of the people that follow my blog, and show likes on my posts. Please keep up your good work, and may God richly bless you.

    Beautifully presented! I haven’t been to Hampi as yet but love it to bits! Your post just strengthened my resolve to visit it real soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yes, I overcame my fear of heights, Acrophobia, during a trip back in 2011. During my childhood, I was scared of bridges (all the bridges- no matter how safe/wide/sturdy) cos it’d take me higher than the ground! ๐Ÿ˜€
    And then in 2011, I went to a hill station with two of my best friends and for the first time in my life, I stood right at the edge of the mountain and didn’t flinch. There’s been no looking back ever since and 45 treks and 30 mountains later, I am still reaping the rewards of that one trip ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know what it was but I came to grips with my fear that day in 2011. Maybe it was the friendship. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Cheers and keep travelling!
    P.S I know this post is over a month old but I hope you recovered soon enough! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I am so glad you liked the place. Also, really in awe that you overcame your fear of heights like it was no big deal. Maybe it was the friendship effect but whatever it was, you had to do it yourself and you did it. That’s commendable ๐Ÿ˜€ For many more treks to be added on your list. Cheers!!!
      Yes I sure did. The nature helped me๐Ÿค—

        Nature always helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Keep functioning ,remarkable job!
