I’m longing for a holiday in Kerala. Although I am on the lookout for new destinations, Kerala is one state that I want to revisit. I have been there only once and was totally smitten by it. I was fortunate to experience the lush beauty of Kerala during the monsoons, which added to the thrill of my voyage.

What really fascinates me about Kerala is that though Kerala Tourism is already thriving and popular, it is still exotic and fresh. There are so many hidden places that I can’t wait to explore.
I’m looking forward to the following experiences on my next Kerala expedition –
Stay overnight on a houseboat
On my first Kerala trip, I (along with my fellow travellers) did a day tour of the backwaters. We explored many small islands, learnt about the spices and other fruits, and lunched on the houseboat. It was a fabulous experience – perhaps one of my most beautiful days as a traveller. I’d like to go a step ahead and stay overnight on a houseboat on my next trip and spend an entire day just lazing around and doing absolutely nothing.
Take Ayurvedic Spa
I’d like to stay at one of the spa resorts in Kerala, and take a nice, relaxing Ayurvedic Spa treatment. I’m sure an authentic Ayurvedic Spa experience would be different from the spa experiences that we have in the big cities.

Devour Kerala’s traditional cuisines
One of my most delightful food experiences was on the houseboat. I loved the platter of rice, sambhar, different veggies and chutney that they served. Although I’m not a fan of South Indian cuisine, I simply can’t forget what I ate in Kerala. So, on my next visit, trying out different traditional Kerala dishes has to be my priority.
Wander through Fort Kochi
Though I have been to Kochi, I couldn’t make it to Fort Kochi. But, I have seen its pictures and I find it absolutely amazing. I’m excited to explore its old synagogues, churches, temples and other historic attractions, and capture its charm through my lens.

Discover a few deserted villages
Yes, exploring a few villages of Kerala would be my most favourite thing to do. I’m a rural traveller totally. So, I’d like to take the bucolic path and discover Kerala’s unsung villages – talk to the locals, learn about their lives and take some great pictures.
