The 16 hours long bus journey from Chennai to Kozhikode was quite tiresome. As we got down from the bus on the morning of 13th August, the car that we had hired for the entire trip was all ready to go. Thus, we embarked on our journey to Wayanad. Wayanad is about 85 kms drive from Kozhikode. Our driver, who very soon became our uncle because of his friendly/super cool attitude made sure that we had our delicious lunch at a restaurant, stopped the car whenever it was time for us to step out for the stupendous view and also feel the fresh water from the tiny waterfalls. In one corner of our hearts we knew that the day's plan was ruined because of the bus delay. But uncle changed our mind. He took us to the beautiful Pookode lake where we just let ourselves be, watched the mountains and the peaceful lake getting filled with rain water and few boats here and there. Having an umbrella, yet choosing not to unfold it is a thing :) From there we started to our resort. The tower hill resort. As the name implies, the resort is on the top of a small hill that gives you a complete view of Wayanad. All the pain vanished, as we sat there having our evening snacks and chai.
