The train was as usual late and we reached our destination at least two hours late. I was tired but the time when I stepped outside the train, I could feel the freshness in the air of Kerala, my dream place and all my restlessness vanished. As soon as my children started shouting, Kerala here we come, their enthusiasm started rubbing on both my husband and myself. We hired a taxi and as we had already searched for our hotels in the travel site and booked it so without any hassles we reached the hotel and we simply checked in and went to bed. We had booked rooms in the Kovalam Beach hotel, which is near the Kovalam Beach Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram district. It was a very beautiful resort with pleasant gardens and a lovely swimming pool. The staff seemed friendly and dedicated.
We woke up at 5 o’ clock in the morning and after freshening up we were ready for our sojourn to the Kovalam Beach. As the arrangements had already been made, the car was waiting to take us to our destination. The visual awesomeness of the beach rendered us speechless. The silvery shallow sandy beach and clean waters made nature look at its best. The beach was bordered by coconut trees and the gentle swaying of the breeze was hypnotic. The clear, crystal water and waves were idyllic for surfing and swimming. One could also opt for lounge chairs, which were in plenty of supply.
Being a foodie we could not let go of the opportunity to taste different types of cuisine in Kovalam Beach Kerala. The dishes were mouthwatering and our taste buds do tingle even today. Participation of different water sports like parasailing, water diving, and surfing were a must for us. The shopping bargains left me chuckling. In the afternoon, we availed ourselves of Ayurvedic massages, which were to have medical benefits. We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, which was so relaxed and it made my mental and physical tiredness vanish. We had never seen such beautiful and majestic sunrises and sunsets and by the time we reached our hotel we were ready for our next destination, which was Padmanabhapuram Palace. This day had been one of the most beautiful, peaceful and relaxing days of our lives.
