Best Boating tours in Kerala - The Kerala backwaters is the rather unappealing name given to the peaceful and picturesque palm-lined network of lagoons, lakes, rivers, and canals that run inland from the coast of Kerala, from Kochi to Kollam. The main entry point, situated between Kochi and Kollam, is Alleppey. At the heart of the backwaters is vast Vembanad Lake.

Backwaters of Kerala..
Something that I had overlooked all those years growing up..
Learning the names of Backwaters was just a Social Science lesson in School and not something I would like spending time in, on a trip..
.
.
.
🚣🏻‍♀️
.
.
.
I blame it on the fact that I grew up nearby the beach..
Playing in the sand, playing with the waves, getting wet and bathing at the beach was all regular amusements as a kid, making me feel as if backwaters were just another water body, no big deal..
.
.
.
🚣🏻‍♀️
.
.
.
Later only when I got my job in TVM and I came to southern part of Kerala, is when I first got thrilled by the amount of lakes and Backwaters here in TVM, Kollam and Alleppey..
.
.
.
🚣🏻‍♀️
.
.
.
And somehow now I have been under the charm of backwaters since an year or so..
The sunset, the sunrise, the canals, the water plants, the people at the bank with canal front home, in between just you and the splash of water from the rowing.. Everything is just so calming and peaceful..
.
.
.
🚣🏻‍♀️
.
.
.
So yeah, although not as profound as ZNMD scuba diving, although this is me posing for a picture, that moment right there, is one of my happy places, kal aaj or kal bhi rahega 🥰🥰
.
.
.
🚣🏻‍♀️
.
.
.
So tell me which is your favourite water body?

Curry Leaves - It's costly in UK/US( I don't know if there are more countries in this list). In India u get them so easily either in our house backyards or in the vegetable store(u get them free when u buy vegetables), but here just two rows of leaves would be costing you more than a pound. As an Indian u naturally tend to convert the money and u feel like more than 100 rupees for two just rows 😃😃😁⠀
And most of our South Indian food contains curry leaves and we r used to putting them to mostly every other dish (May be because we get that in plenty 😃😁).⠀
⠀
So, here I'm just sharing a way to get curry leaves which u can store for more than six months. Incorporated this way from my chithi(Aunty). ⠀
⠀
Take the curry leaves and just dry it inside home for sometime.⠀
Microwave it for 3/5 mins.(Check in between so that it doesn't get burned).⠀
Remove from the microwave and spread it for sometime and let it dry. Then just pack in a normal bag/cover.⠀
⠀
Just store them as it is and u can use them for more than six months.⠀
⠀
Microwaving retains the colour. You can sun dry them if you are okay with the colour changing.⠀
⠀
PS: I'm sure many of you would already know this. For those who don't know please try this and let me know if it worked for you.⠀
And guys if any of you have any other better way, mention them so that we will try them too😊⠀

Culturally speaking, April was filled with new year celebrations in the Tamil calendar.Just like many other cultures in the world, it's aligned with nature, where newness around us bring joy and a fresh perspective of life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While urban populations of Indian immigrants flocked temples, filled up parks with children, walked the sidewalks, and switched to salads for spring, lots of my neighbors and I spent our weekend clearing up the patio early in the month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's very endearing to watch the seemingly dull patio gardens liven up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm happy to let my son spend hours digging up soil, talking to ants and making bubbles while hooting out to his neighbor friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm opening the doors and windows more now, air drying clothes in the bright sun. I do love the smell of sun-dried clothes, it's the freshest smell ever! back home, this season is when we start making 'vadam' and 'vadumaanga' pickle!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ok, ok, you can wipe that drool off now! 😁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm spending spring break in true blue south Indian style, eating curd-rice with pickle, while staring at this beautiful pink bougainvillea! ♥️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Season greetings from Fremont! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Tired of tasting the same routine South Indian idli sambar?? Guys here's a twist for it , it's green masala idli ,trust me it tastes no less than a Manchurian. 
It's masala is basically  the combination of capcisum, coriander, jeera and scallion (known as onion leaves).
One next level of serving ildi😋.

What I love about life in south India are the teashops that are up and running from 4:30 am-5:00 AM even in the cold margazhi season. They are pleasant and welcoming. Freshly brewed coffee or tea, with fresh milk was served in a jiffy. This was quite the contrary in Shirdi, where shops and restaurants opened quite late inspite of the teeming crowds in the biting cold. #teaphotography #kumbakonamdiaries #localfoodforlife #streetphotography #streetphoto #streetphotographer #streetphotographercommunity #teastall #teastalls #teatime #earlymornings #earlymorning #earlymorningtea #earlymorningcoffee #morningbrew #freshbrew #ourfoodstoriesstudio #ourfoodstories #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #traveltime #southindianfood #southindianlife #travelblogger #travel #travelphotography #travelwriter #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #localchef #localshop

Dear Pati, Happy Adulting!
@venkysram

You know you're a grown up when random 'surprises' from wife are Boxers and Socks! 
When you use your Birthday discounts to buy them
And when your sweet nothings are 'I'm sooo tired'

What can I say, among all the instagram couple goals and travel couples, we're the real couple 💁🏻‍♀️
