Immerse Yourself into the Journey
(Mark our words) Soon, we reach the coast and from riding on tarmac we transition to off-road. This is where things begin to get adventurous.
We will be mountain biking to a secret hill-top spot from where the island can truly be appreciated. We then ride downhill to my favorite beach-side restaurant and have a scrumptious breakfast, sipping chai (Indian tea) and enjoying conversation.
After a hearty breakfast, we ride to The Global Vipassana Pagoda which is a meditation dome hall that has a capacity to seat around 8,000 meditators. Later we end our day not with another quick boat ride to the bustling side of the city.
