The resolve to see the elusive Neelakurinji flowers was intense and we were elated to get our slot for the day. The jeep driver promised a bumpy ride complimentary to the tour and bumpy it was!!
And then we trekked up the hill with showers to greet us just as we reached the top.... feeling accomplished, drenched, excited all at once... age 4 to 66 altogether! The clouds blocked and unblocked our view building up the hype to yet another notch! And we saw the purple beauties though... some washed away, the survivors swaying to the rain but letting us have a peak till they bloomed again 12 years later!
And the day ended only with the therapeutic, soothing Kerala massage with the magic oils and healing hands that seem to soak up all the hurts and aches that you claim to have.
Amazing 4 days at Munnar, Kerala. We laughed, we cried, we fought, we patched up, we were hale and hearty and then caught on some sniffles - all in a day’s work! Must visit.
The climate, the scenic surroundings, the people - they all catch at your heartstrings and you find your serenity and adrenaline rush both at this little heaven tucked away amidst nowhere.
