The Holly City of Hampi

It’s time for us to move from this paradisiac place and take back the road again to see more about India, Hampi here we go !


We took a night bus from Arambol to Hampi with Tom and arrived at 6:30 am in this beautiful Holly place. The landscapes here are amazing, we are surrounded by huge red rocks and green rice fields. Like it’s an Holly place there is no alcohol, no meat and no tandoor, just vegetarian restaurants.


We spend three days here to visit all the temples. We find a really good Rickshaw driver call Jeelan. If you are planning to come in Hampi I can recommended you to take him for a few days, he will take you in all great Temples and restaurants and also explain you lot of things about the history of those places. You can contact him with this number (+91)7-829-989-516.



We found a guesthouse in the middle of Hampi Bazar, it’s really nice to take the breakfast during the morning in front of the temples and see all the monkeys playing in the palms threes. The city is really nice and calm, little streets where Rickshaws and cows try to make them own way between tourists and local people’s. We find also a really good place call Bamboo (always good places with this name) to chill out and having nice dinners.


We spend the last day in the other side of the city across the river with Tom friend’s trying a good Israelite restaurant and eating really good Falafel. Tom and Daniel are going to Hyderabad and I’m going to Bangalore, we took a last time our favourite Rickshaw driver to go to Hostpet to take our night bus. It’s already time to say good-bye and for me to be on my own again. Thank you Tom for all the days we spend together between Arambol and Hampi, it was really nice to travel with you, I had really good times.


I’m traveling now since five months in Asia and I just realize now that I’m really lucky to do this trip. I had this strange feeling when I was waiting my bus, alone, seating in a white garden plastic chair at 8:00 pm in front of the travel agency. Maybe I’m dreading what gonna happens next, not as much as in Vietnam during the first days but a little bit after all. Like Bob said, don’t worries man, every little things gonna be alright, I’v got also all my family and friends supporting me in this trip so I’m not afraid at all Clignement d'œil.
