Rest and Recreation in “God’s Own Country”

Ever since I was a young boy, I have visited Kerala, India to spend time with my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Thanks to their generosity and kindness I have fond memories of my time in Kerala. I was able to create new memories with them during my recent travels to what is referred to “God’s Own Country.”

Soon after arriving in Kerala, my cousins organized a get together that involved cruising on a house-boat in the backwaters of Alleppey. Since it was low season, there were not many crowds, making it a leisurely cruise along with an authentic Kerala lunch.

Thereafter, we traveled to the Peermade area, where we went off-roading in a four-wheel drive jeep. Despite severely rocky roads, we climbed to about 4.500 feet with spectacular views of the Western Ghats, a mountain range that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting with my Kerala roots and highly recommend others to visit who are traveling to India.
