Mostly everybody dreams of going on a road trip without anything stopping them. The clutches of life in different forms can really bring such dreams to a halt.
However, a Thrissur-based couple decided to take a trip around India without any regrets. Harikrishnan J and Lakshmi Krishna quit their 9 to 5 jobs to take a road trip and explore the country in the best way. With the support of their families, they got into their car and embarked on an interesting journey.
The couple wanted to make this trip hassle-free in all ways possible. With a budget of 2.5 lakhs, they tweaked everything in their own way. They converted the backseats into a bed if they wanted to take a nap or call it a night. They also carried three 10-liter cans filled with water in them. While one was used for washing purposes, the other two were used as drinking water.
When it comes to food, the couple cooks for themselves. “We carry a 5kg gas cylinder and a one-burner stove with minimum essentials. We usually cook in the morning and for lunch, we often make rice which we might have for dinner too,”Harikrishan told CNN Traveler. Sometimes, they even dine in Dhabas. They even invite villagers and locals to eat with them as well.
