In August, my girlfriend and I will be coming to India for the first time. We arrive in Calcutta and from there have one month to travel to Kollam, Kerala. We want to use trains as much as possible. Here's what the itinerary is looking like.

Aug 14 Arrive Calcutta (for 3 days)
Aug 17 Arrive Bubaneshwar, Puri, Konark (for 5 days)
Aug 23 Arrive Vijayawada (for 2 days)
Aug 26 Arrive Hyderabad (for 3 days)
Aug 28 Arrive Bangalore (for 2 days)
Aug 31 Arrive Mysore (for 3 days)
Sept 3 Arrive Coimbatore and Ooty (for 3 days)
Sept 6 Arrive Kochi (for 2 days)
Sept 8 Arrive Kollam

We have to be in Kollam by September 14, so this leaves us about a week for rest, detours or any situations that may arise. How hectic will this trip be? Anyone have any recommendations for good stops along the way, outside of the cities? Also, is it necessary to book trains in advance, or can we just book the next train upon arrival at the station? Thanks a bunch.

Thumbs up Welcome to Calcutta

Hi ichinisan,
Welcome to Calcutta . I am a bit curious about:
Vijayawada (for 2 days)
Mysore (for 3 days)
- 5 days !!!! Is it justified? Or there is a plan for some other places based on these two? Another day can be reduced from Puri (4 days are enough but if you are planning to take rest on beach, go ahed with 5 days.).

Gopalpur on sea could be a place to spend a couple of days before you leave Orissa.

- Somnath
