Things Kept Going Wrong | Guwahati to Chennai | Vlog 18

The Last Vlog of the #Tourof2017. Packed with drama and adventure.


Finally back in Guwahati, I was running out of luck with the weather and my trip budget was almost exhausted. I knew it was time to begin the long journey back home.

The plan was to get back as quickly as possible, but things seldom ever go as per plan.

Lots and lots of bike trouble (Royal Enfield things), some back trouble and I kept getting lost time and again. With great difficulty and drawing upon every ounce of energy I had left, the motorcycle and I successfully completed the 3000-odd kilometre ride back to Chennai.

Watch this video to see glimpses of what turned out to be an unexpectedly adventurous motorcycle ride back to Chennai from Guwahati.

  1. Actually there’s no way you can get to Asansol from Siliguri via West Bengal! However there’s one way you can travel only through West Bengal and reach Kolkata and it’s via Berhampur. But that road condition is terrible specifically during the monsoon. I won’t recommend that road at least for next ten years. Yes TEN years… you know governments!

    You got lucky to get out of Guahati in time it flooded later on!
    You were also lucky to get that auto rickshaw!
    This is what I like most about this land whenever you face an issue you will get help sooner or later! As if there’s an underlying connection system working under the divine supervision.

    However best wishes for your next trip!
    Please keep us updated about what’s happening in the mean time!

    And could you please make a video about your personal life; like family, job, GF ;p

    See you bro! TC

    1. Hahaha. The ride across West Bengal while going and coming was arguably the worst part of the entire trip. Terrible roads or terrible traffic. There was no escaping it. I hope they improve that sometime in the future. New ideas and content for the channel will be shared soon. Do keep watching 🙂

      1. Absolutely!
        I like the Ride of 2017 series. The editing and filtering is really good!

        Did you shift homes? I see a different home on your arrival!

  2. Superb..Accidentally stumbled on this blog when I was trying to research for my Guwhathi Chennai road trip with my friend on a Xcent at this age. Motivating to get on the road.
