Life seen from a Houseboat in Kerala

May 18, 2017

Good day to you,

as I am writing this, outside is pouring rain, and me, well I am cozy in my blanket eye-catching the water drops aggressively hitting the leaves of the trees, the patio, and my neighbor’s rooftop. The open window lets the freshness of the air, and the cool breeze inside my apartment. So refreshing. I am a sunny’s weather advocate, but I can’t deny that this rainy weather is perfect for lazy-cozy days.

This is also a great moment to share some memories of a torrid afternoon in Kerala. As said before, still lots to show you from that trip of a lifetime.

In one of my previous posts, I already wrote about our houseboat experience in Alleppey Backwaters. Today, I just want to let you take a glimpse into the life seen from the boathouse, the everyday life of people that live on the banks of the river.

This ride was our introduction to the Keralian beauty and lifestyle.

As we were passing this church, we could hear a melodious chant from the inside, which enhanced the meditative atmosphere of the place and led us into a peaceful dimension.

Every activity fitted perfectly into the natural scene, as if it was directed, except that it wasn’t.

You can see for yourself why we all loved this experience, it’s authentic and full of local hidden gems!

Of course, a deep into the river helps fighting those super hot afternoons.


Even if I left India more than a month ago, I can’t let it go. I feel like this is one of those destinations that don’t get old no matter how many times you visit it. Yes, I want to discover the northern part of  India, but I will always want to return to this earthly corner of paradise in the south.


See you soon,
