India – Hampi

We arrived in Hampi a couple of days ago by train from Goa. It was a pretty incredible train journey with amazing views just about the whole way. I spent most of my time hanging outside the carriage watching everything go bye and taking some snaps. After arriving in the less desirable Hospet we eventually (after tackling through a million auto drivers and dodgy operators) made it on to the bus to take us to Hampi. I really had no expectations about Hampi and to be honest thought it was bit of a hole upon first sight, however as the next day rolled on we started to discover what a beautiful, easy going and laid back place it is; full of history, culture, interesting people, tourists and some very average but also very good food. Next stop is Mysore, after an overnight train journey this evening.
