11th May - 15th May 2016

with Jacob,wife Molly and daughter Emily
Visiting Kerala, "God's Own Country" , was a long time plan and finally decided to visit on 11th May and booked a sleeper train tickets on Kochuveli Express, boarding at Bengaluru Contonment. It's twelve hour journey through the night, left at 5.15pm. Sleeping through the night reminded of travelling in the train, longtime back travelling to Bombay after college.

at Rajarajeshwari Temple, Alapuzha
Reached early morning Alleppey (Alaphuza) at 5.30am, where our friend Jacob and his wife were at the railway station to take us to their residence. It's a nice house like a resort, near the roadside, Called KappaKada, adjacent to Hyundai Car Showroom. The huge compund with lots of trees, birds chirping, dogs watching the premises and a nice garden. Mr Jacob runs a small business, Finance company with GoldLoan facilities, and his office attached to his house.

First, our visit was to Alleppey town, RajaRajeshwari Temple and a boat trip in the quiet backwaters. There are lots of houseboats where visitors stay inside and enjoy with all facilities.
Boat ride

We took a boat trip for two hours at Rs 600.00 as rentals and the driver, nice guy, took us round in the waters, stopped near a Kerala hotel for lunch, though we did not, and returned watching the sceneries and serenity.

Jacob was there, had lunch in a hotel, returned home. Later in the evening went to Alleppey Beach for some time and returned for the day.
