A little description of a travel from Coimbatore via Mettupalayam to Ooty… with the famous “blue mountain railways”- toytrain, the “Nilgiri Express” or “Nilgiri Mountain Railway”.

Ok, this time I will really make it short for not torturing everybody out there… cause I’m already somewhere else and I lost my memory somewhere in the mountains…
After Puducherry I took an early morning (11AM ) bus to Chidambaram, about two hours later the conductor suddenly shaked me and made clear that I […]
