introducing god’s own country – india’s kerala on #igtravelthursday

Greetings from Kerala, the South-Western part of India, which is also called ‘The God’s Own Country’ due to its beauty. Kerala seems to have everything from white-sand beaches to jungle where wind elephants roam, hills covered with tea plantations and spices to unique network of backwater lagoons.

My journey to Kerala is only beginning, but as the images show there is beauty and colour everywhere, and that combined with friendly, happy people have already made this a memorable trip.

So join me on a IG photo journey to Kerala – and if you want to read more about this adventure check you my daily highlights posts {here} and future, detailed stories of the incredible India here and on Skimbaco Lifestyle.
