India’s roads are pretty notorious for being crowded, busy and incredibly hectic. We always prefer to self-drive whenever we can and so to make the trip from Varkala to Kovalam in southern India we took our lives in our hands, driving a scooter on India’s crazy roads. Vying for space on the ‘highway’ were trucks, buses, cars, scooters, bicycles, animals and anything else you can think of. The only way to survive is to drive like a local; overtake, undertake and duck and weave between the traffic and take it all in. You see so much more from a bike than you ever would from a bus, we passed families on bikes, guys standing in the back of trucks and even a sausage dog on a motorbike!
