Here just some more ad random pictures which I took when visiting our Backwaters. Away from the hussle and bussle of City life, pollution and noise it only takes a relative short car ride to bring me to the start of the Backwaters and here I can breath and enjoy the “simple way of life” of those lovely people, always friendly and ready to share a piece of fruit or water or chai (tea) with them. The language barrier does not exist for us, we chat and chat – they in Malayalam and I in English and we understand each other and have a few happy joyous moments together. I love going back to those places, over and over again. So come and join me and enjoy the view. I am happy and proud to show you around.
Thanks, I enjoyed the visit to a new place!
thank you Anita (look at your email), Carina
This little tour was a lovely refreshing one – thank you for taking me.
Hello Ann-Christine, as I said before, I ran out of time so the next batch will come soon. I just wish I could transform the tranquility onto this screen.
thank you Hayley – and many more to come. Ran out of time yesterday – sorry. 🙂
a beautiful place, wonderful photos and words … did you have a boat ride too?
haha – yeeees! but not in a canoe.
Super shots of this fantastical part of the world. Do love the kids playing in the water – such abandon. 🙂
A beautiful series of photos of your part of the world. I love the peaceful simplicity of the boats in the first photo.
thank you – I have already found some more nice boat pictures (especially for you 🙂 ).
Thank you I’m sure they will be beautiful
Stunning pictures! Love the shape of the boats and the amazing fishermen’s nets.
Welcome Hilary and thank you. Yes, it is truly a lovely sight to see the brightly painted boats in the midst of all this greenery.
I spent just over a week in Kerala several years ago. An overnight backwaters cruise, a stay on a spice plantation in Thekkady, a couple of days in Munnar and Cochin. It was the perfect end to a month-long vacation in India.
oh you lucky girl! 🙂 I try to talk Jo into a trip over night on those wonderful traditional boats – maybe one day I will be successful! 🙂
It was SO amazing and so beautiful. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I like your enthusiasm Fransi, but….. what’s stopping you??
Nothing. Some other trips to take first.
Wonderful place, wonderful photography, excellent post!
What a magical place and such beautiful photographs-
just love the picture of the children playing in the water
Dallas – they were so lovely, could hardly tear myself away from them. Thanks for your comment. Big hug x
You are taking me back to kerala😍
