Day 1

Here I am, safely returned over those peaks from a journey far more beautiful and magnificent than anything I had hoped for or imagined.....

It's always fun to pack your bags and join your travel buddies without knowing a single plan on the itenery. Oh yeah I did the same.

This whole trip is two in one travel purpose, A collegue's marriage and mainly sight seeing.

After a long tiring day in office we boarded the bus from Bangalore to Ernakulam heading towards Thrissur.

Day 2

Early morning 8- yeah that's pretty much early for people who come from Bangalore, we reached Thrissur.

We went off to our hotel, freshen up and all dolled up to start our sight seeing.

After a long drive we reached one of the magnificent waterfalls in India.

1.Athirapally Falls

Now i can jump around in excitment and proud and say i've been to Athirapally Waterfalls where Bahubali was shot and the crucial scene of Punnagai mannan movie was taken.

We all trekked for quite sometime to reach the waterfalls which is worth the effort. I bet u can't return without getting totally drenched in the falls water without even actually getting into it.

After a fruitful time in the magnificnet falls with a great view we headed towards to the most amazing place of our plan... Yeah the Beach.

2. Snehatheeram Beach

Sea,Sand,Sunshine,Waves... Oh im running out of words. Basically being a person coming from a coastal area i always find people brag too much about visiting beach and the hashtags they use while uploading the beach pictures. #TannedInSun #SunKissed

I'll be like, Oh please.. Grow up fellas..

But it was so surprising for me to see a very quite,calm and clean beach with lesser crowd which made me also super excited and i should mention i enjoyed my ass off.

Gone Crazy

Day 3

When you all of a sudden become little devotional and spiritual, you decide to spend some quality time in temple on a sunday morning.

This is what happened to me and i made two of my travel buddies to accompany me to the temple visit.. In typical indian context, 'They were the Bakhras'.

3.Vadakkunnathan Temple

This temple is known for its colourful festival 'Thrissur Pooram' which is quite famous around the world. It's also one of the classic examples of Kerala architecture and you'll witness elegant mural paintings around the temple.

The indian attire is strictly followed in the temple while dharshan. And the temple atmosphere makes your body and soul relaxed.
