Is there anyone among my readers who do not wish to be on the wheels at least once a month? My craving for travel is much deeper. If my mom and my studies allow me, you may not find me in one place for more than 24 hours; sometimes, even in less than that.
Alas....living each moment as planned is not possible, and therefore, when something turns out to be a dream come true in the same fashion as you wished for, the joy of such secret deal with the self is inexplicable. This October brought similar kind of buoyant air carrying the spice of euphoria and elation in the moment, I was waiting for with desperation.
Blooming coastlines, leisurely backwaters, and much beyond the mainland, where the spices and sweetness both comes together to smell you a coffee that is way beyond intoxicating than drinking the real one. Indeed, I am talking about God's own country.
Almost none, including me, was aware of my plans to Kerala (Including me, because I was not sure). First and the foremost hurdle was traveling from Delhi to Trivandrum and beyond being a solo girl traveler. The next one was to plan my whole trip that should be truly budget-friendly, which was no less than a challenge. Third and most important is deciding on which place to visit in 4 days.
The secret was a friend of mine from Mumbai - basically from Munnar - was getting married. However, I was least interested in the marriage but in the opportunity to take my first glimpse of Jewel of South India. Be it crowded streets of Kochi or backwaters of Kovalam, I wanted to embrace Kerala as much as I can in this 4 (3.5 to be precise) days.
