During my visit to Coorg last weekend, our hotel was located on a lesser known and rarely maintained roads that branched out of the main highway. This road branched out a few kilometers away from Hunsur.
After reaching Hunsur and travelling for a few kilometers, we were confused about the turn as there were many roads branching out of the main road. So, we decided to pull over and check with the hotel staff on the phone.
Over the phone, the hotel staff assured us that we were on the right track. In order to simplify, I asked for landmarks. The hotel staff promptly replied, “Sir… Please continue forward. You take a turn where you see a person selling tender coconuts by the roadside!”.
I reached safely at the hotel despite seeing the tender coconut sellers at every 500 meters. Thankfully, there was a huge hoarding before the turn displaying the directions to the hotel.
