For many of us when we hear the name Kerala, the pictures that come in front of our eyes are Coconut tree lines, Kathakali, Beach, Boats and of course Fish. Though it is my home state, I must say I haven't really explored it enough. The last couple of months had been a lot of dwelling in the mountain and it was time to feel some wet sand underneath the feet as I turn a year older.
It was exactly two years since I had started my solo expedition and it was that time of the year again to plan something exciting. Alleppey is one of the most sought after destination by people of all age groups, hence finding the stay and travel routes weren't very hard. Two days were making justice to the plan I had in mind to see major parts of the town and the first thing I did was to book my stay at Zostel. And guess what, the beach is right in front of it !!!! Waiting for the trip-day to arrive is always the best time of the month.
For those who have some close connection with the state, here is the tune to bring back some memories from childhood:
Thi thi thara thi thi thai
Thi thai thaka thei thei thom
- The boat song
