Started early morning 6:00AM rather than taking National highway we took State highway which goes through villages as we had to cover around 400kms so we wanted to explore some remote areas without being concerned of reaching early to Rameswaram.
First stop was at Kumbakonam where we had breakfast. In 3hrs we completed 131kms then we head towards Pattukkottai. Second stop was somewhere around Thondi.
Overall today’s journey was on one way highway, I broke my clutch wire which I replaced with the backup one. Roads were not quite good except last 200kms to reach Rameswaram. Very few good places to eat on this route(Pondicherry-Kumbakonam-Pattukkottai-Rameswaram) but loved it when you go through villages and seeing people working. I saw most of the people roam around barefoot.
Loved trying different varieties of South Indian food especially South Indian bread cakes, way better than I have every eaten being a big fan of bread cakes.
During today’s ride we saw the impact of tornadoes in Kodiyalam village. It seemed to be massive destruction to homes and trees. I have made a small video which I will be sharing soon.
