We traveled 4 states in 3 weekends. I’m amazed too. First it was Chittor in AP. Then we went to Polibetta in Karnataka , Then kanyakumari in Tamilnadu & Poovar in kerala.
It was the long weekend for ID & Ganesh Chaturti. Plus a 2 day leave meant a week long holiday.. an opportunity not to be missed or so we thought 😉 .. There was Hubby’s colleague’s marriage also in the same time frame. We caught the Tuticorin Express 16732, Got down at Kovilpatti station where a taxi was waiting for us.. after a quick breakfast, we reached Hotel Tamilnadu at kanyakumari by 12.
Visited all local sights – Thiruvalluvar Statue, Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Gandhi mantapam that was rt next to where we stayed. Missed the Sunset as it was very cloudy…
There is a Sunset View Point and a Sunrise view point very close to the hotel. It was then that Lil P fell really really sick. She complained of severe cramps and stomach ache on our way back from the boat ride to Rock Memorial.. and by the time we reached the room she had high fever.. Though she slept soundly, The fever got us worried. and this was just day 1 of our trip and we had another 4 days of bookings ahead of us. Morning when the fever came down we went to a local doctor at Nagarcoil.. She had throat infection and he suggested some high dose of antibiotics.. Lil P as regular readers might be aware is very very fussy and its a nightmare to feed her her meds.. n I Dread giving her antibiotics cos u need to take care of the dosage and timings. Anyway a frantic call was made to my local ped at blore .. He suggested some other cough med & crocin to control the fever and told us to take it slow but keep traveling.. Since we had a very comfortable taxi we went to see the Thiruparrapu Falls & hanging bridge. After 2 sleepless nights, I was exhausted too and insisted that I just wanted to stay back in some resort.. we went to stay at this gorgeous gorgeous place – Isola Di Cocco in Poovar .. and what a relaxing 3 days it was.. Lil p also enjoyed it and recovered well.
We stayed in a quaint cottage with an open to sky bathroom.. and a tiny rainy corner in the middle of the living area. So relaxing to watch the rain fall inside the room. We also visited the Gorgeous Padmanabha Swamy temple & Palace. We got special darshan and could watch the rooms in close quarters before the temple opened to general public.
As you can see, We are putting our DSLR to good use.. Still learning – Its frustrating yet exciting all at the same time. Fell in love with Kerala all over again..
WOW! What a super holiday..glad that Lil’P was fine soon…
