    Default Republic Day Ride (BLR-KanyaKumari-Varkala-Valparai-BLR)

    Posting another travelogue almost after a year.
    So this was a solo ride covering the places which i wanted to visit last year but couldn't. So this year i made them a top priority and visited in first month itself

    This ride was done in 4 days covering Kanyakumari, Varkala, and Valparai and over 1600Kms on my Apache RTR 180 after completing milestone of 30K Kms.

    Day 1: Bangalore to Kanyakumari
    Route: Bangalore-Salem-Dindigul-Virudhunagar-Kanyakumari

    In between unexpected rains (forgot to check weather) and me fully soaked in this was longest single day stretch i ever did of close to 680 Kms in about 11 hours. I had like 10 cups of filter coffee on the way to keep me awake . My aim was to reach before sunset but i reached well before time. I started from bangalore at 4:30 and reached Kanyakumari hotel at around 3:00.

    After reaching Kanyakumari i took rest for about an hour and then went out in search of beach. I wanted to find a calm place to sit an enjoy the sunset. I was lucky as there was not much crowd on that day. I reached sunset point but didn't liked the place as it did not offered a place to sit and view. I was able to see a rocky beach from there so took my bike and went till that place. I was alone sitting on that long rocky beach and enjoying the view, Mission Accomplished.

    After sunset went around walking in street with all shops near the boat house to enquire about my next day's visit to Vivekananda rock memorial. Had dinner and retired for the day.

    Few snaps on day 1
