Traveled thousands of kilometres on road with my family. It took us five days to cover Alleppey in Kerala, Ooty and back in Mysore.
We started our journey on March 6 morning at 7am. We had to go past the tiger and elephant reserves of Bandipur. We tried to spot tigers, leopards, bears and elephants although we saw monkeys, langurs, wild sqiurrels, deer, wild bores and wild cows and buffaloes. Throughout the reserve, there were boards on the roads warning people not to stop or get out of the car. It was a wonderful experience.
We reached Alleppey/Alappuzha exactly 12 hours later although it was 400 km away. Even though our chauffeur was driving fast and was very good, due to India being such a densely populated country and Kerala being the highest densley populated state in India, we did an average of about 35 kmph. We were surprised and shocked to see how clean Kerala was compared to other places in India. We were there for 2 nights.
After that, we started our journey to the hill station Ooty, in Tamil Nadu. Our place was right next to the beautiful Sacred Heart's church. It took us about 10 hours to get there through traffic and ascended up the beautiful Nilgiri mountains through Coonoor and Wellington.
Videos of my trip to Kerala and Ooty will be up soon. Keep watching! Thank you.
5:52 Hotel Nagamale - They served us breakfast of giant plate idlis accompanied with sambhar and coconut chutney, dal vadas, medu vadas and tea. The food in Karnataka tastes a lot different from other south indian states. I prefer this taste actually.
