Winter Holiday highlights of Kerala – what an amazing place!

Tea plantation in Munnar

Went to Kerala, India for three weeks over Christmas and New Years. Here are the highlights 🙂

Enjoyed:

  • The weather – it was 30C everyday and it didn’t once rain, just what was needed over winter.
  • The food – food was great everywhere we went.
  • The scenery – we went up into the tea plantations of Munnar (5500ft above sea level) and it was beautiful. We stayed in a boutique mud hut, the chef there was really good. We also went to the coast to enjoy a 5 star resort. It was amazing everywhere we went.
  • The purchasing power – your money goes a long way in India 🙂
  • I enjoyed being a passenger in vehicles, I’d never want to drive over there. Chaos is an understatement.
  • Definitely recommend going to anyone.

Looking forward to our next trip!

Holiday Part 2 – The Isle of Mull

After Croft we made our way up to Oban where we would catch the ferry to the Isle of Mull, it was about a 5 hour drive so not something we wanted to do following an all day shoot and our ferry was not until the following day.  We decided to head to the Lake District for the night and then we would drive up in the morning.  As with all plans, they look good on paper.  What we had to contend with was torrential rain and high gusts of wind.

It was raining at the campsite when we arrived so we went to the on-site restaurant in the hope that the rain would stop/lessen by the time we finished…we weren’t so lucky.  We put up the two small tents and it took a while as we had to hide from showers and stop the tents from blowing away while putting them up.  We got there in the end!  I wasn’t convinced that I was going to have a good sleep as I saw lighting strikes in the distance and quite possibly heard some thunder!  Fortunately, we survived and packed up the tents after a cooked breakfast 🙂
