The Backwaters of Kerala

pero white dress



Hi Everyone,

First thank you for the lovely comments on previous two posts. I’d reply to everyone once I am back. Just trying to balance out everything right now.

Anyhoo, the rain stopped at around 12ish today, Yippiee!! so we decided to go to Poovar back waters. It’s 30 minutes from Vivanta. Man!! what anΒ experienceΒ it was. We would have totally missed out on the real beauty of Kerala. I wanted to keep floating on the boat and keep passing through those beautiful trees on the water. It was like God has created a magical land on water. Just divine!

Please check some of the brilliant shots clicked by Mr Husband. πŸ™‚

    Ah poovar!!! Had a wonderful holiday there twice, in two different resorts, definitely some of my best memories. (But gotta admit, wasn’t half as well dressed as you). Glad you got to sample the backwaters, for me they are the real Kerala, even more than the beaches πŸ™‚

    You look an absolute vision in white! I love that you kept it almost all white, the accessories, everything!

    • Rati says:

      I am so glad we got to experience backwaters shai. The trip would have been so incomplete without that experience. :)) Thank you soo much!! :))
