Palm covered red cliffs, Arabian Sea, ancient fishing town, seven free days in hand and we find ourselves at a small hippy haven in Kerala - Varkala.
Treacherous paths along the edge of 15m-high red laterite cliffs, roughly about 45 km from trivandrum airport lies this beautiful town.
After about 15 mins drive from trivandrum airport, you find yourself driving along the coast, a fisherman's abode with sparkling light blue hue of sea and a darkened hue towards the horizon.
Ample amount of hours and days in hand, you can slowly feel days turning into a week and it still felt less. This trip was more about being laid back and be at peace, submissive to your thoughts, perched up on the cliff, while the wind strokes your hair gently, days cannot be spent in a better way than this.
Towards almost the end of the season time, hastily deciding to book a trip amidst a new job, was bit of a conundrum. But at last it was all worth it.
