11 types of travelers you will meet in Hampi
The greatest world explorer, Ibn Batuta, once said,
Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
This time when we went to Hampi, we spotted eleven such storytellers:
1. Hippies: While 60s was considered the heyday of hippiedom, you still find them in great numbers in Hampi. So if you spot them next time, sing along Strawberry Fields Forever by The Beatles with them.
2. Musicians: If you are someone who loves music, then Hampi is just the place for you. Go to the other side of the river, you will experience a cultural extravaganza of music, dance and song.
3. Photographers: Hampi is a perfect sight where each and every photograph is a masterpiece. And that’s why you will spot amateurs and professionals alike aiming for their next perfect click of the ruins.
4. Marathoners: Away from the city noise, runners are getting excited about going to heritage sites such as Hampi. Go Heritage Runs organized a Hampi run in July this year, and is planning another on January 25th 2015.
5. Boulderers: No mountain high for these boulderers. We found some of them climbing these giant rocks in Hampi.
6. Meditators: Hampi is one spot where you find lovers of peace trying to think and reflect in a quiet place.
7. Lovers: Hampi is a place for romancing historical ruins as much a lover’s nest.
8. Dreamers: Just the place of your dreams and the place for your dreams.
9. Thinkers: There’s one on every rock in Hampi. May you find your rock to think too!
10. Pilgrims: We also spotted a number of devotees taking a bath in the Tungabhadra river near Hampi.
11. Bikers: You will spot lone bike rides, and sometimes in large groups. Ask for a lift, and they might oblige.
Try spotting these travelers when you come to GHR Hampi on January 28.
