Day 1

We were 5 girls boarded the train with high exWe arrived in Aluva .. Mannnn we dint even know we reached and we sat in the train for 15 minutes before we realised we reached ???????????? media said that Kerala was experiencing high floods so not many were there.. Aluva was so beautiful from the glimpses we saw in the train .. super excited to enjoy .. we directly reached boat house in allepy ... God that boat was breathtaking .. we spent the entire day on boat and it was amazing .. it stopped in the evening at a cute market near the river and v purchased huge lobsters and fish for the night .. the boat then stopped near a village were it was a sight I hv never seen in person .. a narrow road with a beatutiful farm on one side and river on other side .. there were small houses and I envied them for being this lucky .. their staple food was fresh fish and vegetables they cultivate from the farm outside .. no rich guy would be able to buy it ???? we even fished with them and danced in the boat balcony all night .. cherished memory for life

Day 2

With an average breakfast we departed from the boat house half heartedly to Kovalam.. the plan was to go to thekady but because of the rains we had to go to Kovalam .. I did not expect much coz I was excited to visit the tiger zoo in thekady but had to take this second option .. it was a longggg drive in the cab .. we dint find it boating coz road trip is definitely fun with music and friends .. the driver was extremely patient and understanding .. there was no rains as stated by the media .. the weather was not too sunny or raining .. it was like as though it was gonna rain but dint .. so u can imagine how fantastic it would be .. we wanted to experience Kerala and it’s ethnicity .. that’s the plan ❤️❤️ we stopped for pazhampoori.. (sweet banana bajji)..after that the took us to a fort which was was closed as someone died (am not sure who)..so we took some pictures on the road and headed off for lunch .. there were many hotels on the way but we picked the one that made authentic Kerala food .. and the food was yum to a different level .. the beef and rice was so good that I still can’t forget the taste.. we finally reached kovalam beach resort .. our room faced the beach . And the beach was black . They call it black beach ???????? never seen one before .. it drizzled for 5 minutes every 2 hours which made it all special.. the hotel had a pool .. we had fun in the pool while it was drizzling .. that was a splendid experience .. we even made fun with the native Keralites who were friendly with us .. after swimming we directly went with wet clothes to black beach .. sang so loud and clicked pictures .. no one disturbed us .. Kerala people are friendly n respectful .. we came back to the resort .. the owner asked us to take part in the photo shoot for his resort .. we did and he thanked us by sending Kerala payasam (I forgot it’s Kerala name) it was too yum .. v ordered food for the night it was costly and not very tasty .. v dint mind as we were very sleepy after a long day .. v slept with happy memories and that’s the end of day 2

Day 3

We got ready by 9 to leave Kovalam to Cochin .. it was a long drive .. we got a little tired coz it was long drive for 9 hours .. we stopped for authentic Kerala food .. I tasted pathiri for the first time .. pathiri with beef combo was out of the world .. we saw an elephant being taken in a lorry and was amused .. only happens in Kerala I guess .. the driver saw us get excited and took us to a place where the let us ride on elephants .. we were thrilled but it was so costly 400 per person for 20 minutes .. we were afraid we will miss the flight so we left without experiencing it .. the driver then stopped near Jew town .. we got to see lot of authentic shops .. we went to this mystic shop where a guy sold rings that are designed specially for a person to give prosperity, positivity and strength .. we loved it so much .. he gave each of us rings for our date of birth and time .. my lucky stone was white agate.. I was excited and curious .. we all got rings .. clicked pictures and headed back to the airport .. I was really tired as we travelled the whole day and did very little sight seeing .. brought some chips near the airport .. my mom loves Chaka (jack fruit chips) so got 1 kg for 450 .. and dates pickle .. there were different variety of pickles but I wanted to try this home .. the Kerala locals are so friendly and helpful .. I loved them .. we got to the airport and that’s when I remembered that I did not bring an identity card .. all got tensed because of me and I knew for sure that they wouldn’t let me in .. to my surprise they let me in with a small verbal warning .. all were surprised I got the boarding pass .. Guess the ring worked it’s magic ????☺️ we boarded the flight and the flight was on time .. I was expecting it to reach early but because of the weather it was just flying round and round above Chennai airport as the run way was not free .. we reached and that was a wrap .. Kerala memories were fun, emotional , thrilling, breathtaking and what not .. I will never forget the memories .. will cherish it always
