Its been so long since I blogged that I actually need to check the page to see when was the last time. Restarting after a long break with my snaps from my last road trip to the southern most tip of India. A trip that was born out of nowhere in the middle of a hectic work routine and when a mini break seemed ideal.
We set off early in the morning before day break, within 2 hours reached the Kerala Tamil Nadu border. As soon as we entered the latter state, the road was full of gigantic potholes!
The landscape with the sun rising behind the mountains was simply gorgeous and we stepped out to grab in the fresh air.
From there we headed with much difficulty on pot hole ridden road to Thirparappu Falls. We took the luxury of having a nice shower and also enjoying some of the kids rides 😀 Though the water falls is artificial, there was no mad rush and we enjoyed the mood.
Then we packed off to Kanyakumari. En route we decided to visit the famed Padmanabhapuram palace. Here are a few shots from there. Clearly the kids visiting the place had only one word popping up in their mouth.. the blockbuster Manichitrathaaru!
After exploring the humongous palace with innumerous hallways and unbelievable wood craft, we settled for a small hotel for lunch and then drove over to Kanyakumari. Decided to first visit the Vivekananda Fort.
After watching the sunset at sunset point, we returned next day via Ponmudi. It was my first trip to the place. The drive uphill is crazzy to say the least. But once you get there you just don’t feel like coming back. Simply loved it. Next time I hope to plan out a solo trip to Ponmudi. If you haven’t been there, you are missing a lot!
As much as a dry routine we have in our PG life, these sort of escapades help rejuvenate big time 🙂
