Kerala was one of those rare places down south we would fail to visit every time. So the plan was to get going this time with a short itinerary but a specific one to enjoy this beautiful place. It was run by a congress govt. with the social harmony at place tagging along all people of various communities. The clothing is primarily ethnic in kerala with a touch of the colour white in their attire across gender lines.
Our first day started off with a flight from kolkata that landed in kochi airport with a rough estimate of around three hours. It is a relatively small airport but the view while landing was spectacular.
The first destination would be bolgatty island from kochi. We took a cab and it took us seven hundred bucks with a time span of forty minutes to reach the island. Those forty minutes were really amazing with the waterway views, fishing activities and agricultural work happening with full force. The island is in a relatively isolated area but the view is too good to miss. We had pre-booked a room at bolgatty palace.
The place was really well maintained and the staff was really polite. The food we tasted was south Indian although the place did provide multicuisine dishes.
We would spend the evening sightseeing and return back for our next destination.
