India Roadtrip (Bangalore-Kerala)

Hi I am planning a 2 week roadtrip from Bangalore to Kerala in mid-September and looking for a traveling partner or two to share the costs and the experience. I have a car, and all expenses will be shared equally. Anyone interested? Or any tips on how I can find a partner?

Have you posted on Lonely Planet Thorn Tree forum? Possibly better for this type trip.

mmm...they don't even have an India specific travel buddy forum so I am doubtful...I tried www.trailwala.com/blog because that seems more india outdoor focused. tried www.indiamike too.

You don't need an India-buddy-specific forum, just put it in India, where anyone looking for anything "India" goes. I'm guessing it gets more traffic than all the rest combined.

Thanks KimFionafromUK192 for the tip. Took a look and it doesn't look like India is discussed much. www.trailwala.com got me 2 responses already, so it looks more promising for India...but maybe I should just show up in a cafe in Bangalore and put up fliers, lol.

You say you have a car. Are you driving yourself? Or hiring a driver? If you are driving, and are not from India...are you aware of road conditions there? Speaking for myself, I couldn't drive a block in Bangalore or any city in India, without having a nervous breakdown.

Haha Calinurse, I am Indian, so I am used to it. Plus, the whole point of this trip is to get out of the city and into the countryside--where the beauty makes up for the bad road
