Spent the New Year's weekend in India visiting a small Southern state called Kerala. A beautiful and colorful experience to say the least. Here are some pictures to share.

I can pass you some tips on lodging and the tour company to get you a dedicated driver and car. It's better to travel in a group of 4 to fray the total cost of travel, food and lodgings.

Hi,

I love the place! Went there during last CNY. We did the backwaters stay, and also visited the Thattekad bird sanctuary - lots of birds there! (including a pair of adorable frogmouths!). Then we had a luxurious stay around lake Kumarakom :)/>
