I boarded SLS Travels bus from Madiwala. Lately I’ve realized that semi-sleepers are better than sleeper buses both in terms of comfort & speed. I reached Tiruvalla at 7:30 in the morning ie) about 10 hours journey .
I was here to attend my friend’s brother’s marriage but before that we had planned a 2 day trip to Varkala which was even shortened to 1.5 day trip due to other priorities. So we took the train from Thiruvalla towards Varkala. It was 90 km journey which took us around 1.5 hours. Don’t stand near the door” was what our parents used to tell us & that’s exactly what we did 😉
Its fun to sit on the auto-rickshaws. People drive here like insane. I mean they don’t slow down even on blind curves. So brace yourselves for some adventure. I was lucky enough to have close connections in Kerala who made the entire trip memorable.
- Spend time & enjoy Kerala with the locals, if you know few.
- Try “jack-fruit puttu”. I didn’t get its taste immediately but it was delicious & healthy 🙂

- Spend time at the beach, doing nothing 🙂
- Listen to “Barsaat ke mausam me” by Kumar Sanu & watch the sea as it rains 😀
In 3 words to sum up my experience in Kerala would be :
“God’s own country” 😛
” Chocolates, cakes & chicken !!!”
