adventure of a different kind in kerala, southern india with #keralablogexpress – day 11

Wednesday March 11th

Water obviously plays a very important role in Kerala from the sea ports to the backwater waterways, and today was all about water again: a day discovering the new hop-on hop-off water taxi service in air-conditioned boats travelling between several boat stations.

‘A day on boat-hopping to see the sights of ancient city, jewish quarters, old palace…’

This new air-conditioned service aimed at tourists allows the exploration of several sites from Bolgatty to Fort Cochi and explore is what we did today. They say that it’s still winter here in India but I’m feeling like the hottest summer day Italy!

A day by the water always seems a bit more relaxing for me than walking around a city, and combined with tuk-tuk adventures, waterside restaurant stops and learning about the new discovery (and soon-to-be tourist site) of the ancient cities of Muziris.

‘Indian Ocean was like taking a hot bath in Cochin – so much warmer than down south where we started!’

My trip started from the seaside and it also ended in the seaside – sadly I had to change the agenda and make it a bit shorter, but that’s life. As they say; carpe diem – cease the moment and enjoy it to the fullest and live for the moment! In that spirit I even made a cameo appearance as myself in this last photo, which normally only happens once in a blue moon… So it’s goodbye from Cherai Beach Resort near Cochin – until the next time….
