Forget the coconut in everything, the gorgeous luxury hotels and the kick ass food, one of the coolest things in Kerala is their very own Martial Arts form called Kalaripayattu. Whenever I think martial arts I think of Chinese or Japanese men prancing around skillfully with crazy acrobatics and jumps and turns – something straight out […]
Holi is one of the most colorful festivals of India. Countless poems, paintings, songs can be found celebrating the joy of Holi. There was a time when no Bollywood movie would be complete without drenching the heroines white sari in colors of Holi. Even latest movies like Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani, had the mandatory Holi […]
Monday March 2nd A day to relax! As we are waiting for the whole global group of 30 people to arrive here, we have a day off today. After a lovely breakfast a group of us headed for a walk and a swim on the beach, and we came across a group of community nursing […]
I have just traveled 2100 kms from one end of Kerala (south west India) to the other with 30 bloggers from 21 countries. Most of them were half my age, all of them passionate about travel writing and photography. We were selected from 700 applicants to be part of #KeralaBlogExpress. It was an amazing experience, […]
Food Glorious Food ! One of the things one always remembers is the food.Food is very important in every culture in every part of the world. During my two weeks in Kerala during the #KeralaBlogExpress I was in total Foodie heaven. I knew before going that I would be eating some pretty amazing food. But […]
It is no coincidence that Kerala is known as the Spice Capital of the World. The perfect climate and soil is home to various exotic spices. God’s Own Country has a varied history of inhabitants from the Dutch to the British and the Arabs. The aroma of the Spices of Kerala seem to have drawn […]
A room key in recycled newspaper was a signal this was going to be different to the last experience on #keralablogexpress where I stayed in the presidential suite with my own infinity pool. This is an ecostay experience – no show of elephants and drums here at Spice Village.
Még csak három napja vagyok Dél-Indiában, Keralában, de máris rengeteg nagyon erős impulzus ért, persze nem csak gasztronómiaiak. Egyszerűen nem tudok betelni a gazdag fűszerezésű, rengeteg csípős és vegetariánus ételt felvonultató választékkal, kemény két és fél hét lesz ez!.
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 […]
Je crois que pour la première fois depuis longtemps, j’avais un peu de mal à revenir par ici. Revenir et faire comme si de rien, alors que ma vie est présentement complètement chamboulée. Les plans que j’avais prévus ? Évanouis comme neige au soleil (en parlant de neige, courage plus que 3 mois d’hiver, amis […]
Thiruvananthapuram, formerly known as Thiruvandrum, is the capital of Kerala, a state on the Malabar Coast. As I arrived late, I did not get to explore the city except a visit to the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, an ancient temple situated at the city centre as the #keralablogepress participants were brought to visit the temple. Nobody […]
Durante a viagem a Kerala, na Índia, o Viaje Comigo passou, por duas vezes, no aeroporto de Cochim, que é o primeiro aeroporto do mundo a funcionar a 100% com energia solar, desde agosto de 2015. Tido como um exemplo para o mundo inteiro, este aeroporto internacional de Cochim, no sudoeste da Índia, tem mais […]
Dizem que é normal. Que a maior parte dos viajantes acaba por ficar constipado depois de chegar à Índia, por causa da diferença de temperatura. Visitei Kerala em fevereiro, quando supostamente é o inverno, com temperaturas acima dos 30 graus. Muitas vezes nos 36 graus… A diferença de temperaturas e a obrigatoriedade de se ligar […]
O Turismo de Kerala chama-lhe a #Tryp of a Lifetime e é muito provável que nunca tenhamos mais uns 15 dias como estes. Melhor do que ter conhecido Kerala, durante duas semanas, e todos os seus encantos, foi ter conhecido 29 bloggers do mundo inteiro, que partilham a mesma paixão pelas viagens, do que nós […]
Since coming back from amazing Kerala , I have fallen in love with my life. The most common thing all 29 bloggers plus the most talented photo/video team said about me was how they all remember my smile so vividly and the sound of my laugh that would make them want to laugh too. Such […]
