Kerala – Kovalam, Alleypey, Kochi and Wayanad

I have been wanting to create a separate section on my blog just for pictures for quite some time now and was contemplating which of my past travels to start with, when Kerala Tourism got in touch with me, appreciating my blog post and requesting me to share an image of their latest campaign, Kerala Great Backwaters.

Agriculture is a big part of everyday life – Coconut, tea, coffee, cashew and spices including cardamom, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg are core to the agriculture sector. There are numerous paddy fields everywhere, and not to forget abundant fish (Kerala is one of the leading producers of fish in the country) I spent 9 days in Kerala covering 4 places – but let me assure you, there is definitely more to see!

No matter what part of the hotel you are in, you will be close …
