It is not for nothing that Kerala is called God's own country...at least parts of it!

Happy Kitten said...

Thanks Smitha..

Can I guess? Palghat, Munnar, enroute to Munnar... I give up...please do fill in the names too..

Cant wait to board the plane..this time for us it may be a little earlier than usual due to a wedding.. which means only 2 months to go!

Happy Kitten said...

Vinod: if u mean the greenery.. then it is the same all throughout.. but if u mean GOC well.. :)

Happy Kitten said...

or Ooty and Mettupalayam?

Vinod_Sharma said...

I have been there but only to Thrissur, Guruvayoor and adjoining areas of Mallapuram. Missed the backwaters. May be some other time!

This is a treat :)
Let me also make some guesses but ... it could be so many places! I agree with Happy Kitten some more pics and some names please!

Ordinary Guy said...

:) thanks!!! that was fast....:)

locations?? please.....:P

Smitha said...

@Vinod - Yes, the greenery is amazing.. I realize it more after travelling to Kerala from other parts of India..

@Happy Kitten - Sorry - Its all Wayanad! Maybe I should have made it a game - with a prize for the winner :)
I will try and do a proper photopost - when I finish getting the house in order :)

@IHM - Will do another post - with all the places we visited. Just posted these for Ajit to see:)

@Ajit - These snaps are all from Wayanad- my parents are there. Will do a proper post - with some more snaps - from all the places we went to:)

Pixie said...

Beautiful...

more pics and more names please... :)

Solilo said...

Smi, Kerala looks the same throughout. I mean I was guessing it to be Thekkady and Munnar or may be Idukki and later scrolled down to read that it is Wayanad.

Never been to Wayanad. So beautiful!

:(:(:( Home sick.

Yes! you should have made it a game. :)

Solilo said...

BTW beautiful banner :)

Happy Kitten said...

Smitha..sigh.. u have made most of us homesick..

Wayanad is one place I am yet to see.. nd last time we missed it due to lack of time.. we went only up till Calicut.. this time there seems to be more chance.

or maybe you will let us explore the place through your blog :)

I have never been to Wayanad..

Your new look is perfect and the header is very nice...

hitch writer said...

God's own country eh ! ??

Green tranquil serene... hmmmm

nice pics !!!

Pradeep said...

Kerala is a good place only to go for a few day's holiday, get recharged and come back. That's what I do. Wish its politics and social dynamics are as green and refreshing as Nature.

kanaguonline said...

great pics Smitha... :)

kanagu said...

Kerala is always a treat for nature lovers :) I love kerala.. have been there to sometimes :)

Smitha said...

@JPJ - Yes, Wayanad is indeed lovely. India has so many diverse , but equally beautiful places - its amazing.. The flower in the header is from my mom's garden :)


Vimmuuu - Travelogue is coming up -just haven't had the chance to work on it yet :)

@Indyeah - I have no idea of the name - will ask my mom. Just found it very beautiful..

@Sahaja - Kerala is beautiful - mainly because of the greenery.. The photograph was clicked by my husband:)

@Pixie - Thank you. And will do a travelogue - when I get a chance to get my breath back :)

@Solilo - I know, Kerala looks the same throughout.. And the amazing thing is the way the scenery changes as soon as you cross the border at Palghat and Mysore - I have not entered into Kerala from any other place :(

Awww!!! So sorry if I've made you homesick! Hugs!

@Happy Kitten - Sorry for making you homesick too :( Looks like I have spread my illness :) Do visit Wayanad - and if I am home - you should visit me too :)

@Nimmy - Thank you! Got bored of the other look and was feeling low - so wanted to do something different :)

@Hitchwriter - Thank you! Yes it does look tranquil doesn't it...

@Pradeep - Yes , guess you are right when you say that its good for a vacation.. As for politics - less said the better..

@Kanagu - Thank you!
