Over the last week, the 5 days and 6 nights I’ll be talking about, will probably be one of the most memorable times spent by me, as well as the 25 others who accompanied me on a class trip. It was an-out-of-the-blue idea coming up in my class considered to be consisting of dumb-heads (which we proved wrong). It all started when a set of juniors went on a one day trip to Nandi Hills. I got pissed at their readiness to enjoy, more because of the lack of such attitude in my class, and was swearing at classmates for being so passive and uninterested.
The silver lining appeared a few hip-and-happening people of the class came up with a plan and succeeded in garnering a good number of people. The trip plan was like this :
- Bangalore to Cochin by train – Did nothing in Cochin. Just changed over from the train to a tourist bus.
- Cochin to Munnar by Bus – stayed for a day and a night in Munnar.
- Munnar to Allepey by the same bus – just a visit of around 6 hours.
- Allepey to Trivandrum – Reached Trivandrum close to midnight and stayed there for two nights and a day. Said Bye to the tourist bus we were traveling at the end of Trivandrum chapter of the journey.
- Trivandrum to Kanyakumari by train – Stayed at Kanyakumari for a day and night.
- Kanyakumari to Bangalore by train through a 20 hour journey.
I’ll come up with the whole experience as a series of posts. That way, i can share more detail as well as more photographs. As a gist of places visited, I’d like to say this:
Munnar was a place with exhilarating landscapes. The header is a pic of one such locale.
Allepey is said to be Venice of the east. The backwaters play a natural healer’s role for an agitated mind.
Trivandrum or Thiruvananthapuram as it is called, the capital of Kerala, was the most exciting and entertaining part because of Kovalam Beach.
Kanyakumari – The southern most tip and cape of India. It was a treat to watch the famed sunrise and sunset.
Stay tuned folks!
