A visit to Gods Own Country....
Recently i had the opportunity to travel down south for the first time, with my parents n nana-nani. The excuse was a close family friends engagement, but we made the most of it by exploring some of the most beautiful places in Kerala -- Cochin, Thekkady, Kumarakom, Munnar etc.
The trip was truly a refreshing experience for all of us.... its a beautiful green state, and the time of our visit was also apt for sight-seeing; not too hot or too rainy. Just Perfect.
We had rides on elephants, took boat rides to a wildlife sanctuary by the river, hiked on a small mountain in the rain (awesome), visited a tea factory & tea plantations.
It was a 10 day long stay after which my nana-nani came back to Delhi, but mom-dad and i decided to take a small 3-day detour via Bangalore. This was an unplanned extension to our vacation and we made the most of it ! We saw lions, tigers, bears etc from a feet's distance (we were in a van ofcourse). I even got cool tattoos made.
