Travel is more about exploring the world. It is about enjoying the gift of nature and relaxing in the pleasant environment. I have a habit to visit various religious destinations whenever it is possible. This is my faith and belief in God which inspires me to take such trips. I visit these religious places to offer thanks to God for everything and also to get the blessing. I travel to find the inner peace and get calmness in my life.
This year in April I visited to Kerala which turned out to be one of the best ideal trip. It was my first time visit to Kerala and also my family was with me for the whole trip. Our trip was planned with focus on God’s own country Kerala and covering beaches and major tourist attractions and temples. We booked our flight tickets online as these days it is much easy and convenient. Another advantage is getting low fare and discount if booked in combination with hotels. I prefer low cost airlines and Indigo Airlines best suited my budget for travel from Delhi as it is non-stop flight and have good record in terms of on time performance.
We all boarded the flight from Delhi as per Flight Schedule and reached Kerala in the morning. Our journey by road started to Malabar Coast. We went to the hotel straight away and kept our luggage there. We all very excited as weather was very pleasant and went for evening walk to the Malabar Coast. It was one of the best moments of the trip as each family member was walking while holding each other hand and enjoying the coast side. We had coconut water and then refreshing south Indian sea food snacks. Our two days were spent in Kerala main city and checking the local temples and visiting the aqua marine museum.
Third day we went to Allepay which is famous for its boat race. We took the house boat and enjoyed our time in the boat. My husband also had a chit chat with the local fisherman and tried his hands to understand the fishing technique. We also went to local shop to buy the fresh food spices and coconut made artefacts.
It was day four and we had to move from backwater trip to hilly areas. I have seen most of the hill station in the north India but this time we got a chance to see Munnar. It was great journey to the hill top where we saw lot of tea farms and cloud formation was very low. We could experience the cloud just above us and also saw many young people taking the adventure hiking trip by the bicycle. We visited the Eravikulam National Park which has lot of varieties of birds and animals. We saw many houses which are built during the British rule and still maintained in same form.
Last day of our Kerala trip was back to the hotel as we packing our bags for checkout and then visit the Padmanabhaswamy temple. We reached the temple and recited the prayers in the temple. We spent good amount of time to see the ancient temple and its magnificent architecture. We also bought the idol to keep at our home and other religious items. In the evening we hired the cab and went to the airport directly to catch our flight to Delhi.
Overall we enjoyed the whole trip and Kerala is must visit destination for everyone with family.
