It was raining from two in morning. We woke up early, checked out the hotel and reached the Kundapura railway station before seven. Train was at eight and half and of course we had to wait. The morning was beautiful and cool. There was no hurry and sitting on this small railway station had something very unusual from our daily hectic life in
Rain was still in its best even in the morning, so we packed our bag and went to bus stand. Gokarna doesn’t have good bus or train connectivity so first we took bus for Kumta and from there we had bus for Shimoga. What I realized about Gokarna is that it’s a very lazy town and perfect for a hang around place. Though we could not visit any beaches but it has splendid beaches and one will love sitting idle and walking along it. In route to Shimoga, bus stopped at a place for lunch. A signboard nearby was telling me that Jog falls is only two kilometers far, which was in my original plan but I could have regret only. I just thought of making trip to Jogs some another time. The rain got stopped after thirty six hours and sun was out now before reaching Shimoga. Again we waited for six hours at station as we reached very early and train was in night only. This trip was a complete rain wash out. The only good thing happened in this trip was that we attended a marriage and visited Kodi beach in Kundapura previous day. We also had very good time in Murudeshwara last day. This was the second time I visited this place and it has everything to make you revisit here. Hope I can also make to Gokarna again.
