Bangalore (also known as Bangaluru) is a humungous, bustling city in the state of Karnataka renowned for its booming IT industry. Although I hadn’t originally planned to visit this city, after being offered to be shown around by a local I’d met earlier on in my trip in Goa, I couldn’t turn down such a unique offer – as people say, it’s always best to see a city from a locals’ perspective!
To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,
I have had a fabulous first week of travelling solo (not to say I’m not missing my travel buddy though!). After surviving my first sleeper bus, I spent the end of last week in the enchanting city of Hampi with a couple of girls I met at my previous stop, Palolem. A UNESCO World Heritage site in the state of Karnataka (around a nine-hour bus journey from South Goa), Hampi is a calm city with some of the most unusual and outstanding scenery I have ever seen.
