India – Kerala

Well….it’s been a while since my last post and we’ll blame lack of internet for that. It’s actually been quite nice not being able to be connected 24/7. Anyway we have spent the last 2 weeks in the southern state of Kerala checking out the sites of Ernakulam, Vaikom, the famous Keralan Backwaters and Fort Kochi. We were also lucky enough to stay with a wonderful family in a rural part of the state, near Vaikom, and were invited to attend the wedding of one of the daughters of the family (a colleague of Amy’s). This was an incredible experience and we got treated to amazing home cooked curries everyday for a week as well as being taken around on Backwater cruises and to Periyar Wildlife Reserve where we went on an elephant ride and a boat cruise where we saw around 30 wild Elephants as well as Samba Deer, a Yak, Warthogs, plenty of birds and even an Otter.

I’ve obviously shot a ton of pictures but here are my favourites….
