Im going to a friends wedding in early Jan 2013 and then want to spend a month in India seeing the country. I want to avoid tourist spots, but see some of the coast and islands. ( I dive and would like to do some diving while out there) I also want to see inland and experience the culture. I will be on a budget, but could also do some teaching if I want to stay out there longer.
Has anyone got suggestions and reccomendations of unspoilt coast, islands, and internal scenery and experiences to have.
