Why travelling is so much fun in Kerala

Postcards from Kerala

Today we can dig deep and find some funny reasons.

We sell fish at your doorstep
We sell fish at your doorstep

If it is not Kerala, where else can you get fish at your doorstep irrespective of season or weather or whatever! With their unique style of “koooooi” sound (Its not the cooing sound, but a sound that resembles to Kooooooi, the longer the better )

Like a wake up call, they come everyday morning, making this sound. Hearing their voice even cats used to come from nowhere hoping to get a couple of small fishes. Earlier they used to use bicycles, but now they have upgraded to mileage bikes! So no matter what, may it be heavy rain or scorching heat, this people will be at your doorstep everyday with fresh fish directly from the fishermen! If you love eating fish everyday, you got a reason to love Kerala

 

Freedom of choices

Even if you want to buy a hat, didn’t you see you have a lot of choices! Depending upon your budget, time, comforts, requirements, likes, dislikes whatever it may be, you can find something or the other that suits you. if you are looking for  tourist package you have house boats, hill stations, trekking trails, pilgrimage spots and much more to choose from.  If you are looking for hotel to stay for the night, you can find it as low as 250 rupees per day or less to 10,000 rupees per day or more.  Same goes with restaurants, cloths and almost everything. I guess its more or less same everywhere in India. So vast range of choices makes Kerala an attractive tourist destination.

Why travelling is so much fun in Kerala

This is the continuation to my previous post  #KeralaMillionReasons.

#KeralaMillionReasons

Today I found on Kerala tourism twitter page about a contest. You need to post pictures stating one of the million reasons why you love Kerala. This idea made me go through my picture collections to find some Kerala pictures. Through my pictures I was finding my reasons to love Kerala. Some may sound funny, some you will agree and some you will agree to disagree. Anyway I found that I can frame a lot of pictures and frame it to hang it on my own wall. Kerala offers so many picturesque locations and that will be my prime reason to love to travel all around Kerala.

So I am going to share my #KeralaMillionReasons pictures along with reasons.

Live in greenery

Where else can you live and immerse yourself in so much lush green environment?

I was born and brought up in Kerala. So that is my first and foremost reason to love Kerala. Its my home state and it is so green everywhere, especially during monsoons. This is a view from Kannur. Kannur is in Malabar region, North of Kerala.

During Monsoons

Talking about Monsoons. It not only offers beautiful greenery but certain scenery like the one above. This is Dharmadam island during Monsoons. Yet another beautiful view that made me love Kerala one more time.

Love, Lust and other things.

People often think about the difference between love and lust. Maybe there is a very thin line between them. But for me there is a lust that I love! Yes, it is WANDERLUST. If you have ever bitten by the wanderlust bug, you are gone! There is no turning back. You will keep on finding reasons to travel. It will act as a drug! Even if you cant find money to travel, you will find ways of getting that wanderlust high. You will find new ways of travelling, new modes of travelling. You will be invincible when it comes to travelling! That’s about my lust.

Now about love. I have fallen in love long back. I used to drool over her, yet she seemed to be beyond my reach. I needed to be a little bit wealthier  to have her in my life, I believed. And I made enough money to woo her. And I have fallen deeply in love, with… my first DSLR and photography in general. 

This lust and love go hand in hand together. Like gypsies travel and sell things, I travel and capture things. I guess I am one of the many people embracing this new lifestyle. Nowadays everyone’s passion is travelling and photography it seems! I am no exception. So I am joining the league. I think I am also joining the league of travel bloggers too!

Professional Travel bloggers are a new breed of people who get paid to travel! How cool is that! Getting paid to see things, savour the local cuisine, capture the moments, documenting the bizarre events. They sound totally cool to me! So I am on my way to become yet another travel blogger who wants to travel and click pictures during the process, I do take pictures otherwise too. I will share all of them if you are there to support me with your kindness. Thank you.
