I've always wanted to blog about the cities I've visited. Whether in UAE or India or elsewhere, traveling and talking about the cities I've been to, is something I've always loved. But somehow, I never get around to blogging about them. One of my resolutions this year is to blog more on travel. Even if I've nothing much to share about the city's culture or history or even food for that matter, I will try and share some photos. So, let me start with Parappu.
Parappu is a tranquil village less than ten minutes away from where I live back home. It is so beautiful that I couldn't believe my eyes. Yes, Kerala is deemed God's own country and I shouldn't be surprised to find a beautiful village here. But I felt those picture perfect images that are shown in tourism ads are only from backwaters or such popular tourism destinations in my state. I had no idea that there was such a hidden gem just around the corner. I was also quite disappointed in myself for not visiting the village sooner.
We parked our car next to the aalthara and walked taking photos, sharing gossip and I think a couple of recipes too. It was a really good evening. We didn't bring both our kids - this was pre-planned, to concentrate only on photography. Hey, we moms need some 'me' time too.
Photo-walk is a great way to find different perspectives on the same subject. Both our photos are very different from each other's (her's was way better) and made me realize how we interpret the same situation or subject in very different ways!
It seems there is a perfect bird watching spot nearby Parappu. I'am planning to go there next time. Insha Allah. If you are in Kannur district for a family holiday or a proper vacation, do visit Parappu. It will certainly be worth your time and effort.
See you soon Insha Allah
