This month, I went on a cruise on the famous Kerala’s backwaters for the first time! It was Monsoon and raining a bit but I must say the experience was as expected. Traditional, Refreshing & Peaceful… We were near Alleppey, about 50 km from Kochi and on board a luxury boat for a two-day cruise of the brackish lagoons, canals, rivers and lakes on the Arabian Sea. Almost like a labyrinth, you lose yourself in the canvas of various shades of green, formed by the reflection of vegetation in the water. For me, the best way to meet the locals, understand their way of living and enjoy the scenery.
