Wonderful tranquil Kerala Backwaters

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.

  1. 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.
