Traveling to Poetic Pondicherry – 2

Posted on Posted in Travel

Continuing the trip before I bid adieu to Pondicherry awaited me. Before that, gyaan time: It’s only while you travel, you learn how not being “that early riser” is such a pain. That said, when a beautiful day is at the doorstep knocking with uncertainties, teeming with probabilities of running into intriguing places, people, and what not, it gets easier to wake up a lil earlier.

Before I go on, soak in some pictures from beaches.

I wish it was a lot more cleaner. Word of caution. People stop littering. There’s only so much that can be cleaned.

Kids posing for a click. They had asked for it and were dancing 🙂DSC_0323

He didn’t smile even after many attempts. He was quite shy you may think but he had approached me, not the other way around, and said “sooooper” after seeing the click. He made my day!DSC_0384

Another click of the serenity beach that was such a pleasure to be at.


Beautiful, isn’t it?

The joy of just being in a place with not much crowd around, it leaves you speechless. A beauty of its own when you aren’t into any thoughts and just so in the place. Right in the moment. Do visit serenity beach in the evening to be at the rocks, waves, silence and colorful sky. You will fall in love with beach, sky, and the peace 🙂 and I loved it.

I then came back from my room after freshening up to fritter my time away at la cafe and promenade/rocky beach. Yes again. This is the best thing to do at night there or a must!

The moonlight, waves hitting the rock accompanied by zephyr had enmeshed me. It was more than beautiful. Breathtaking and inexplicable. I strolled on beach having encountered many “thambis” (bros :P) offering me to join them for a drink and I politely refused (ille :D) but still joined them for small talks now and then. I hadn’t left the beach until later after 1 am. I don’t know when I returned 😀 Time was the last thing I would want to notice then.

I got up a lil late and though in the bucket list, I had pushed Auroville quite back, I didn’t want to rush there yet. For it would take more than a day just to cover it. To actually be there. And, while I could have quickly hit it, I had to head back too so instead I headed to another place which turned out beautiful too.

Paradise beach is only accessible by boat and I didn’t have more than three hours to spend. Though, the heat of day was getting to me, I quickly ran into the water to fight it off 😀

Nevertheless, the scene on the route to beach was more mesmerizing. I will let the pictures do rest of talking (again) before I resume.


The kick Start 😀
