Sai Kumar hailing from Coimbatore quit his job from Qatar because he could not live with the monotonous life. He hated the robotic life and returned back to India, to do what he loved the most-travel alone.
After much preparation and owning a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 he set off to Leh. It took him 77 days to reach Leh, stooping at different stops, covering an entire distance of 11,174 km and stayed in Leh for 14 days.
“Although the idea was to cover the entire country but budgetary constraints and the flood that affected Bihar stalled the plan. So, while on my way to Leh, I took the Western Coast, and on my way back I rode through Central India and went till Kanyakumari and eventually came back to Coimbatore,” said Kumar to HuffPost.
Though his parents did not agree to his plan, he decided to go forward with what he had decided and on his way he met a couple of very good people.
“You think you are doing a very great job by riding all the way to Leh but then I met a guy who was walking to Ladakh! Then I met people who were cycling to Ladakh. It has been a humbling experience," Kumar says.
It was a wonderful trip except for a few minor accidents and falling sick on the way.
