My time at the Kovalam beach was one of the best times in my life, the pounding sun's heat, the excreting sweat smell, the everlasting responsibilities, the short-lived tan were all silenced with the gushing waves and the soothing blue water of the Arabian Sea.

With a lot of beauty for the nature to offer, there were also some man-made wonders like the lighthouse built at the cape of this beach.

Serving as a source of information this lighthouse adds on to the scenic beauty of the location.

The very next day we visited what is called the Niagara of India: Athirapally Waterfalls. This waterfall is the largest in Kerala and the tiny trail that takes us to its base was somewhat quirky but very intriguing.

The sight of the waterfalls will be mesmerizing that makes you feel the time has stood still for a moment, which can be hindered by the scorching sun's heat though, and the moment you get into the water trust me the butterflies you are going to feel in your body will stay with you forever.

The excitement doesn't end there as we embark on our journey and reach the Queen of Arabian Sea, Kochi/Cochin. Hosting one of the finest natural harbors in the world, Kochi is the glam doll of Kerala.

Blended with the authenticity and modern culture, Kochi is the populated city in Kerala. We visited this place on the most auspicious day of the winter; yes, it was December 25th and our day was eventful as we have visited one of the historic basilicas- Santa Cruz Basilica.
