It has been a while that I blogged over here. I tried writing this post back when I had actually made this trip but I guess I had a pretty bad writer's block!
Anywho, craving for another trip, I turned to my tripoto page to re-live few of my trips. This one is about the time when I and my friend Shelly chose Kerala to spend the last week of 2017 at. To be honest, it was really an enriching experience for both of us. We had a very ambitious itinerary charted out for ourselves and we planned to cover Munnar, Wagamon, Alleppey and Varkala. On a side note, never ever be this ambitious while exploring a new place. In a haste to cover everything on your check list you may not be able to really understand and enjoy the spirit of it all.
So anyway, after celebrating Christmas with my family, I and Shellytook a flight from Delhi to Bangalore and from there we had planned to take a bus at 9:45pm which we had already booked through Thangamayil travels. For some reason, there are no direct buses from Bangalore to Munnar, and what these travel agencies usually do is halt at Udumalpet, Tamil Nadu, (we reached there at about 4am) shift all the passengers into a smaller traveller bus and then drop them all to Munnar. Why go through so much hassle you ask? Well, we couldn't really zero down to a destination in time which led to a delay in making the bookings and as we all know last minutes bookings cost a bit, so this was the cheapest way for us to get to Munnar.
