Hampi is a heady mix. It is a cocktail of most unlikely ingredients thrown in together. It is definitely a window to a glorious past, rightly famous for the intricate carvings and the legends. But there is so much more to Hampi. The moment you hit the periphery, you are spellbound by the landscape. You will witness some very beautiful and heart warming initiatives taken for the community by the community.
Add to this an agricultural setting and some really exotic birds, and you have a vacation you will not forget in a long, long time.
First of all, the organisation was really great! Thanks for organising it at such short notice! I liked very much that we did not have to worry about transportation as it was all well organised. We simply could sit back and relax. The people behind it (F5, driver, and Chandru from the farm) gave me a good overall feeling and were truly supportive and helpful all the time. Beside that I appreciated to stay in the countryside off the tourist paths where we could get insights into a real authentic way of living in rural India. We felt welcomed by the villagers and had some nice interactions. And at least but not last, the home-made food was delicious!
