A Trip to Kerala in India

Kerala Citrus Holidays

So, we’re off to Kerala in India tomorrow! I never thought I’d be writing that sentence.  It’s definitely one off ‘The Bucket List’ for us and I’m really looking forward to it.

Kerala Houseboat

When I saw the break advertised I reckon I was the most decisive I’ve ever been in my life.  No going to and from Trip Advisor, no checking the climate, none of the ‘should we, should;t we?’ – just wham…. BOOKED!  For someone who can deliberate for aeons in the biscuits aisle in Asda over which ones to buy, this is a pretty major achievement!

This was the sentence that ‘sold’ it to me……

“A delightful journey through Kerala, “God’s own Country”. – covering Kochi city, Munnar tea plantations, a houseboat stay and a relaxing beach break!”

Poovar Kerala

Kerala is in southern India and apparently the scenery is out of this world. Turns out it’s a little paradise, nestled between the Western Ghats and the overwhelmingly beautiful Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. Mr. C went to Kochi many many moons ago and he says that Kerala has a little bit of everything that India has to offer.

Below is some of our itinerary:

  • Flying with Etihad Airways – our 1st time so let’s hope they’re better than our recent BA flight.. We’ve only heard good things about them so fingers crossed!
  • Two-Night Stay in Kochi to explore Kerala’s dynamic city
  • Two-Night Stay in  Munnar with a Tour of the Tea and Spice Plantation (the tea tasting should be fun)
  • Two-Night Stay exploring Thekkady, the gateway into the Periyar Sanctuary
  • A trip to See Wildlife by Boat
  • Discover the Dances of the Kathakali and Martial Arts of the Kalaripayattu
  • Going Agatha Christie style on an air-conditioned Houseboat for One-Night
  • Be Wined and Dined On Board
  • Three-Night Stay in a beach resort in Poovar and one full body Ayurvedic Massage
 So anyway, will let you know next week how we’re doing in India. Indelicate as it may seem,  I have the Imodium packed already just in case!  TMI?
Incidentally you can book a similar Keralan Odyssey at Citrus Holidays
Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
