It is quite sure that no one in the world could explore all the stupendous places in their lifetime. Each and every nation hosts hundreds of marvelous places that it would be really difficult for humans to traverse all these places but still, we people never lose hope. In the name of excursion or family tours, people used to visit the fabulous tourist destinations either alone or with their good friends and dear ones. As part of school and college tours, most of us would have explored the beguiling beauty of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. As we grew older and older we change the destination and select places that provide immense opportunities to practice adventurous activities. I am such a person who loves to discover the amusing beauty of the secluded place. It is my lifetime dream to visit all the fanatic places and learn their unique customs and rituals. After graduating from one of the prestigious colleges I was absorbed into one of the best IT industries in the nation. After working for 3-4 years like any parent even my family also started to search for alliances for me. It would be not correct if I say that I did not have any dreams or expectations regarding my life partner. Yes like any guy even I weaved several dreams for my better half. It was nothing related to beauty, education, or family status but she should have craze towards adventure events!!! I know it would be really surprising for you. As I am a travel lover and adventure enthusiast, I wanted my partner to give me company for my daring trips. My friends always say that I am really different person in every aspect. Every time I had the thought that it will take time for me to find my dream partner. But my destiny really astonished me. Within a short span of time, I was able to find my perfect match. Within 2-3 meetings I came to know that even she is fond of enthralling activities. In several aspects, we found similarities hence we agreed for marriage. Soon after completing all the wedding rituals, we started to think about our honeymoon tour. As mentioned earlier I always wanted to explore the unexplored places, we decided to discover the magical gem hidden in the southern states especially in Kerala. Through my friends, I came to know that Kerala, famously known as ‘god’s own country’ shelter may breathtaking hill stations and cerulean seashores. At first, we thought to curate the itinerary by ourselves self but understanding the hazard behind it we decided to avail of packages from well-reputed travel operators such as Dream Holidays in Kerala.

As we were fond of mind-blowing tourist places we decided to explore the stupendous charm of the surroundings of the longest river in Kerala called Periyar. On the banks of the river is situated the largest wildlife sanctuary called Periyar wildlife sanctuary. The astounding beauty of the sanctuary could be described in mere words. I and my wife were busy capturing the alluring beauty of the fauna and flora. It is one of the few places in Kerala where one could find rare and endangered species of wild animals and birds. With permission from the concerned authorities, we feed some of the beautiful and amusing birds. After strolling for more than an hour we moved to one of the best canteens over there and satiated our appetite. By the evening we moved to a well-conditioned tree-house and enjoyed the panoramic beauty of the dark sky encompassed with twinkling stars. It was really an awe-inspiring moment for us. What else to say such sweet moments could not be experienced anywhere else in the world? More than us it was the birds and animals who wanted us to witness the gorgeous beauty of the rising sun. Therefore the birds sang melodiously in front of our treehouse. It is really marvelous time to witness the sun rising from the far end through binoculars.

After relishing a scrumptious breakfast prepared in Kerala style we moved to the famous Ayyapancovil hanging bridge. What makes the bridge so famous is nothing but the unique architectural style. Located at a 14 km from the main town of Idukki called Kattappana, Ayyapancovil hanging bridge is known to be one of the fascinating tourist destinations in southern parts of Kerala. Even though from the bridge one could enjoy the resplendent beauty of the serene nature, you can try hand in other options such as by rowing bamboo rafts. When sailing in the bamboo rafts we were really able to enchant the surreal beauty of the virgin nature enriched with natural resources. When we were practicing rafting we saw many people especially youngsters and newly married couples seeking help from the well-experienced professionals to the raft. Most of them arrived there like us by availing of tour packages to Kerala from authorized travel operators. People, who explore the gorgeous beauty of the hanging bridge, will definitely visit the Ayyapankovil Sastha Temple. What makes the temple so special is because it was constructed by Lord Parashurama himself. Another intriguing feature of the temple even during heavy rain the main portion of the temple called ‘Sreekovil’ in the Malayalam language did not drench. This miracle attracted hundreds of devotees and travel enthusiasts from various corners of the world. After enjoying splendid days in Kerala we returned back to our hometown.

An Unplanned Marriage and a Planned Honeymoon to Alleppey

I never thought of marriage in my life. I was very passionate and dedicated to my goals. I used to tell my parents I won’t agree for any marriage proposal until I achieve my goals. I belong to a simple orthodox family. The place where I reside is completely a replica of TV soap operas. With a lot of dreams and thoughts, I decided to pursue my graduation in engineering. The 4 years in an engineering college gifted memories that to be cherished in my early 50s and 60s. Like every student, I prepared very hard for job interviews, especially for campus placement. Unfortunately, I was eliminated in the pre-final round of campus placement. For a moment I lost my hope and the firm belief from god. I lost my confidence because most of my friends got good jobs in good companies and only a few remained jobless in my class and unluckily I belong to the latter group. Gradually I regained my hope and started to appear for several campus interviews. Within a couple of months, I enrolled myself in a software training course and as soon as I finished my course I was absorbed into one of the best start-ups companies in my state.

After a completing 6-months probationary period, my parents started to brainwash me and propelled me to get married as society is blaming them for keeping a young girl in the house. I burst out on them and clearly told only after two years I will get married. My decision was not digestible for them. For time being they remained silent. I again started to concentrate on my work. Day by day my work schedules became stressful and hectic. Sometimes I used to reach home late nights. This increased fear in my parents. They somehow wanted to finish their obligations and wanted to relax. This time through one of my relative our parents got a marriage proposal from a well-reputed family. I tried my hard to convince them. But this time they were very stubborn about their decision. As I had no other alternate I was forced to obey their commands. I really did not want to get married so soon. Therefore I did not dress well. I wore a simple dress and did not apply any kind of make-up on my face. By 10 am they reached our house. The guy was accompanied by his parents and aunt. After the official conversation, I was invited to the living room. For the initial few minutes, I did not look at them. Then I slowly raised my head and greeted them. To my surprise the guy was handsome and he and his family were well-mannered.  We all were impressed by their pleasing attitude. I was wondering how I could reject their proposal. I tried my level best but I did not find any genuine reason for the same. When they left my parents told me that they liked the family and they really wanted me to agree for the same. They also created an emotional drama so that I support their decision. I was really trapped. I cannot oppose my parents. And eventually, I agreed for the marriage. I wanted a time gap of at least 2 months prior to marriage so that I could talk to him and understand him. But the astrologer told us the perfect time for marriage is within a month or else we will have to wait till next year.

And there starts our love story. While everyone is busy scheduling our marriage we are secretly planning our honeymoon. On a random search, we found a travel company called Gogeo Holidays that has a nice collection of honeymoon packages to Kerala. From which we selected a honeymoon pacakge which includes the richness of Trivandrum, Kanyakumari, Agasthyakoodam, Neyyar dam and wild sanctuary and the most famous Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Trivandrum at the best price.

With a dashing sunrise, Trivandrum gave us a warm welcome. We started our romantic journey from the divine presence of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple. The temple is an epitome of holiness and sanctitude. Apart from that, the temple became famous for its mystery-hidden chambers of treasures and it’s enigmatic stories. The temple was built in 6 AD under the supervision of the kings of Travancore.

The main reason behind the huge flow of the crowd to this divine place is due to the discovery of huge 6 secret Kallaras or vaults which are named as A, B, C, D, and F. All these vaults are flourished with wealth beyond human imagination. Heaped with bundles of ancient gold coins, diamonds, gemstones, and huge gold necklaces. While wandering through the divine temple and experiencing the royal architecture, I was still thinking about the most precious and impenetrable vault B. The guide told that vault B is locked with Naga Paasam mantras and to show its horrifying side the doors are engraved with serpent imagery and Yakshi symbols. While I was thinking about its deep routes Jeff reminded me that, we are here for our honeymoon not for archeological research. Before leaving the temple, the guide egged us in to eat the temple Sadhya which is a royal delicacy of Trivandrum. And only available during the festival period. Lucky us!

A Surprise Wedding Gift for My Brother and Sister-in-law

Usually, everybody wakes up either by hearing the alarm or by tweeting of birds. But for me, it was something strange I opened my eyes early morning by hearing a quarrel from my newly married brother’s room. As everybody knew it is very awkward to peep into some other’s personal life especially when it is our sibling. Therefore I did not interfere in his personal business. To be very frank I was hearing quarrel for the last night but it was not as serious as it is now. Slowly I got from my bed and got refreshed and moved to the kitchen to start my household duties. After an hour my sister-in-law joined in the kitchen and with her my mom. Usually early morning she used to be very talkative. She used to talk on several issues. But on that, she did not utter a single word. Her face was turned like a pumpkin. My mom wanted to inquire about the matter but she did not do it as she wants to protect her image. Even though she wanted to know the fact she controlled her emotions. In the next 30 minutes, my brother came to the kitchen and demanded a cup of tea. Usually, his wife used to give him, the moment he wakes from his bed. But today as they were not in good terms I had to take the initiative. He was very angry and he shouted at her and told her “you decide the place, I will not” and left the kitchen. She busted into tears. We both females consoled her and called him and inquired about the matter.

Like every life partner, they both had different choices for each and everything. As my brother is an adventure lover he liked adventure places such as hill stations, scary mountains and so on. His wife did not like adventures but love to spend precious time with plants and animals. I smiled and told them I have a perfect solution for your cumbersome problem. They looked at me. Their expression exactly reflected their curiosity to learn the solution. They were eagerly waiting for me to utter the answer. I did not test their patient anymore and revealed the name of the destination- Alleppey, and Kumarakom. The places were not new to them. Both these places have played a significant role in the formation of new Kerala. They were happy now and started to smile. But he told me, “even though the names of the places are familiar but he does not have any idea about the tourist destinations over there”. “I have a solution for that also”, I told them. “What is that?” my sister-in-law asked. They can purchase the honeymoon tour packages to Kerala from the famous travel operator called Dream Holidays. It is one of the prominent travel planners in Kerala and curates the packages by inculcating airfare too. “Wow! That sounds good”, my brother replied. Also, I added that I and my husband will arrange all the necessary arrangement for your trip, the only thing what you have to do is to pack good dresses for your most awaited honeymoon trip. They were surprised and had no idea how to express their joy and excitement. Within a couple of hours, we availed of the packages. They thanked us for the surprise gift.

They told that cab was well–maintained. The interiors and exteriors were fascinating.  After travelling for 3 hours they reached the ‘Venice of East’- popularly known as Alleppey. The soothing climate and calm ambience lured their hearts. After completing the formalities they moved to rooms in the resort and unwind for a while.

From Alleppey and Kumarakom they bought some homemade chocolates and also antique for me.

An Epic Chronicle About The Hidden Gems In Alleppey

Since I’m a Malayali who born and bought up in Kochi, I was not excited about spending my precious honeymoon in Alleppey. Because of the influence of Hindi web series and films I was also dreamt of having a romantic honeymoon where we go for a long walk through the tempting landscapes covered with snow in Manali. But all my dream just disappears when the groom from Hyderabad express his intense love and passion to explore Kerala, especially Alleppey. By seeing his puppy face, I finally agreed to his opinion and packed my bag to Allepey.

Since he decided the destination, the rest of the decisions was mine. After long planning and plotting, I picked a travel company in Kerala called Gogeo Holidays because they have an amazing collection of honeymoon packages at the best prices. From the air ticket booking to all the leisure activities they have charted the entire trip and hence provide hassle-free honeymoon. Our honeymoon started with refreshing sunrise in the houseboat cruise in Kuttanad. A humble and bizarre town truly waiting for all nature lovers to explore its culture, heritage and the local delicacy of Kuttanad. Joshua, my better half was so excited to see the bunch of ducks in the lagoon near to our houseboat. He was mimicking their sound with them which was funny to watch. Kuttanad is all about its paddy fields, an unending stripe of coconut plantations and duck farming. Due to its rich spices and paddy cultivation, it is renowned as the rice bowl of India. Since he is a photography enthusiast Kuttanad feels like a divine paradise for him.  photography

I called myself an adventure junkie because adventures are like yoga for me, refreshing and exciting. I always wanted my honeymoon to be a little adventurous. And while choosing Aleppey I was not sure about it. But the travel company has managed to customize the package by including my carving for adventure also. From which Kayaking is the one I love the most. Moving through the alluring backwaters of Allepey where the rustic beauty and serenity of the green water and the sight of coconut moving plantations near to the lagoons are so refreshing. Holding your paddle and controlling your kayak like a captain through the narrow canals while the bunch of ducks and some species of small fishes, we called it by the name “Karimeen” in Malayalam. They took all the safety measures by giving life jackets, and give a trail kayaking before we start it by own. While kayaking through the lagoons, there are many fishermen, fishing with the fishing net and the way they pour the net accurately to the canals was fascinating to watch. The activity lasts for about 3 hours and in the beginning, my kayak was not in my control and it started moving in a zigzag way. Gradually everything come on phase and I enjoyed the ultimate pleasure.

Houseboat-Allepey

After my victory, we go back to our houseboat. The delicious aroma of local cuisine gave us a warm welcome in the houseboat. Joshua was so surprised and excited to dig into it. The vibrant colors of the dishes were so dashing. From the most loved “Kappa and Thala curry” to the authentic duck roast the dishes were mind-blowing. To make the cuisine more interesting a bottle of “Kallu” or toddy is also added to the entire menu. He was so excited about trying toddy because it was his first time. Usually, I don’t prefer toddy but the one tasted from Allepey was different and gives an immense sensation to my taste buds. After an elegant lunch, we went for sightseeing. Before I saw the Alappuzha Zakariya Market, I didn’t realize that Allepey is a perfect place for shopaholics. From spices to handlooms it is an ideal destination for a spectacular shopping experience. He gifted me with a silver choker and a statement piece earing beautifully embellished with black stones. Maritime products are the other recommended things to buy in Allepey.  If your bargaining skills are good, then you can purchase anything at a very low price.

Since our romantic honeymoon was in August, we got a chance to witness the popular Nehru Trophy boat race in Alleppey.  With no doubt, the boat race so stunning. Our guide explained well about the legendary history behind this sport in Kerala. June to August is the best time for the photography enthusiasts and fans of this amazing sport to see the practice sessions more closely. The only thing which makes me feel uncomfortable is the rush and crowd. Because it is a seasonal period, we are lucky enough to see another treasure in Kerala, the “Kalaripayattu” which is an Indian martial art. This was one of my favorite parts about our honeymoon because apart from the movies and the famous “Vaddakan Pattukal” ballads, I didn’t see this priceless art form before. Nowadays people are practicing “Kalaripayattu” for keeping the body fit and energetic. Even though he showed his extreme interest to learn “Kalaripayattu”, I didn’t encourage him because it’s our honeymoon and I was not in the mood to spoil it. So if you are someone to love to learn new things and also wish to see the boat race then June to August is the perfect period for you. Also, so many attractive tour packages are available during this time at the best prices.Kalaripayattu_20th-Nov
After all the sightseeing and adventures we went to Allapuzha beach to experience a tranquil and gorgeous sunset with a romantic candlelight dinner. Soothing climate and the spectacular view will rejuvenate your mind for sure. This beach is popular for its 137 years old pier that stretches towards the sea. Being a Malayali I didn’t realize the beauty and prosperity of this precious land until I stepped into this mesmerizing paradise. There is much more to see and experience in Allepey but the trip is for a couple of days, so we returned to our hometown with a bundle of joy and happiness.

Attappadi – An Exquisite Destination for a Splendid Romantic Vacation

As we were nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts we always wanted to celebrate our romantic days in any of the scenic places in India. It was three months ago I got hitched to a software engineer working in a multinational company in Bangalore. Within a month I also travelled to Bangalore. In a couple of weeks, I got a job in a multinational company. Things were going smoothly. We were enjoying our newly married life. Our wedding photographer called us and told that our wedding album is ready. We were eagerly waiting for our wedding album. He told us that he handed over the album in my hubby’s house. I was not able to control my anxieties. We thought of visiting our hometown on the coming weekend. But unfortunately due to some issues in our offices we were not able to make the trip. Hence again for one more week we desperately waited for the week. Finally, without any hazards, we safely reached my hometown. The moment I entered my hubby’s house without getting fresh I suddenly ran to my mother-in-law and inquired for my wedding album. She played many tricks on me such as she tried to convince me that the photographer failed to give the album and so on. But I was not ready to believe in her pranks and finally, she admitted her failure and gave me the album. Soon from where I don’t know my husband came and tried to grab the album, from my hands but I somehow defeated me and ran to my bedroom and closed the door. My husband was knocking at the door. I know that the wedding album must be seen together, therefore, I opened the door and started to view the album together. We really enjoyed our betrothal and wedding pictures. We were looking stunning. The outdoor shooting of us was speechless. After viewing the album suddenly my hubby asked me “when are we going for the honeymoon trip?” I replied, “when we both are free”. For lunch one of my hubby’s cousins joined us. Just like us he also got recently married. We really had friendly moments with him. While discussing several topics he inquired about our honeymoon trip. “We haven’t gone anywhere”  my hubby replied. “What about you?” asked my hubby to his cousin? Two weeks ago they had their most awaited honeymoon trip at Attappadi. ‘Attappadi’ where is this place I asked him. It is a place in Kerala. What is the peculiarity of the place I asked him? It is an amalgamation of hill slopes, plantations, rivers, and bio reserves. It is an abode of enjoyment and excitement he replied. We asked him to tell the specialities of Attappadi. Without any hesitation, he started to explain it.

Stitching Romantic Days to Our Married Life at Munnar

For the last few months, I was totally busy with my wedding rituals. I never thought I will get hitched so soon. During my final year, I got placed in one of the most reputed companies in India. Nowadays getting a job soon after graduation is something equivalent to a miracle. I am really grateful to the Lord for his blessings. I was placed in one of the most populated and busiest cities in the country called Mumbai. I did not find much difficulty to adjust with their lifestyle and climate as I was born and lived in Mumbai till my 5th standards followed to my father’s transfer we moved to Kerala. Things were going so smoothly. After a year my parents started searching for a perfect partner for me. They uploaded some of my photographs in the matrimonial sites. They hide these activities from me because I was not interested in getting married at that time. One of the families expressed their interest and was invited to my house on a Saturday. And it was Diwali holidays and I had a week’s leave from the office. I reached by Friday evening. They all behaved normally to me. But I smelled something phishing. I tried my best to inquire about the matter but I failed. The next morning when I woke I heard my mother and grandma instructing my dad to purchase some sweets from the market and 3 packets of milk. I wondered why parents did not tell me about the arrival of guests. After getting refreshed I moved to the kitchen and asked the matter. Without listening to the question, my granny asked me to get ready soon and also told me to wear traditional Indian dress. I wondered what is happening in the house. I lose my temper and shouted like anything. My mother had no other option than to reveal the secret. It was nothing but a guy and his family is coming today to visit me. I was very angry with them. I refused to get ready. By that time my dad returned from the market. He tried his hard to console. And as everyone knows if a child is not agreeing to their parent’s instruction the final step what they will do is ‘emotional blackmailing’ and that is what happened here. This emotional blackmailing is a kind of a poisonous weapon that each child is afraid of. Finally, I was forced to obey their instructions. By 10 am they arrived. My family received them and I was prying through the window from the kitchen but I could only see his Innova car. From their conversation I came to know that guy is working in IBM as a senior software developer in Mumbai! I was impressed with his profile. After a few minutes, my mother came to the kitchen and asked me to accompany her with a tray of tea. I followed her commands. Just like his family, he is also soft-spoken. I liked his personality. Within an hour they departed us. Soon our both families started to investigate our whereabouts. Within two months we got hitched and permanently shifted to Mumbai. Now we were seriously thinking about our pending honeymoon trips. Many places came into our minds but we decided to celebrate our romantic honeymoon days in Munnar. It is one of the famous hill stations in Kerala. We packed all the things for the trip and got ready for the tour.

We availed of flight services to Cochin International Airport. From there we travelled for nearly 2 hours to Munnar. We captured the lovely and mesmerizing images of traditional stores, luxurious malls, plantations and many more. In other words, one could say that Kerala is an amalgamation of ancient and present amenities. After a little bit hectic journey we reached the resort. As we had already booked the rooms we did not have to waste much time at the reception for completing the formalities. After resting for a while, by the evening we started our sightseeing. Munnar is located on the banks of three famous rivers called Matupetti, Nallathanni, and Periavaru. Munnar is categorized into two sections namely Old Munnar and Munnar. We traversed through the plantations of tea. We clicked on many lovely romantic pictures of us. Over there we met many newly married couples coming from various parts of the country who availed honeymoon packages to Kerala at the cheapest rates.  While strolling through the green meadows we bought our hearts to our mouth. Also, we visited the famous tea museum and tried to learn the ancient days of Munnar. Followed to it we returned to our rooms, after refreshing we were surprised to see a candlelight dinner arranged exclusively for us! We really enjoyed it.
