Yay !!! I was looking forward to share this one :D And thanks a lot people who read Day #1 of the travel :D I got really good feedback from few of my friends ,Thank you !!! And if this is the first travel post you are reading and you didn’t read the one I posted on March 1st , there is time still ,you can always scroll down and read it :P
Coming back to this one , I must tell you this place was not planned . Initial plan was to go to Pulicat Lake then few of my friends had the plan changed as the lake was not the best in this time of the year and more over we googled about this place and it looked interesting .
We all had to leave atleast by 7 so I ended getting up by 5 :30 because me and Megha were the first to sleep , we had to be the first to get up and get ready . Both of us were ready by 6 :15 am and when we suddenly realised one of my friend ( Jayashri) was still sleeping like a baby .I tried waking her up with pleasant “Good Morning Girl” but it never works , so I annoyed her to the best of my abilities and she got up by 6:30 .Finally !!!!!! Poor thing tried rushing up but you know it is always not possible for a girl to rush up and dress up :(
We left her the room asked her to check everything ,lock it up and then return the keys as we were planning to wait in the lobby .After everything was over we boarded the bus . Those who have been reading me will know that my day always starts with a cup of coffee , I dint get it there :( I would have prefered having them in my room and then leaving for breakfast but it was other way round ,we left as such to the restaurant. Also I don’t like having any tinned food or biscuits or anything too oily or too spicy as my first meal so I was waiting and peeping out of the bus hoping I would see a eat out . The bus stopped and I was stunned at how beautiful the place was .Yes ,I was still whining about my coffee but at the same time I was enjoying the scene .There was a small local eat out which was surrounded by mountains and a clean road running just before it . I rushed and asked for a coffee and they asked me to wait . :(
What will I do when I am waiting , obviously click photos :D
And hence I had to pose on the highway !!! Nope does not have anything to do with the movie Highway :P
I look so sleepy in this :( :P
Micro Trend Alert :
Apparently there is a micro trend happening about celebrities where they match there clothing with matching make-up . Most people who read my blog would know that I prefer nude colours on my lips and I totally avoid eyeshadows but this time I have given a try to these red lipsticks from Coloressence :D They give a peachy – orange color during single coat and dark red when applied twice . Nice right ??? :D
And finally by the time I finished clicking photos they had my coffee and breakfast was ready :D Ok even this time I did not get Puttu :P and yes I am gonna whine about it till someone gets me one !!!! :(
After we were done with it , we climbed up and reached the toll booth where we would get our entry ticket . One thing I liked about these places were the way Kerala Tourism Department has maintained the place , seldom they are appreciated or recognised for their work . I used to stay in Agra and as I remember the tourist destinations were not at all maintained , even the iconic Taj Mahal !!!!
They asked us not to take any plastic covers, bags , bottles etc :) Pretty impressed <3 I am a freak who stops and scolds people who litter on the road !! *Annoying* !!!! For me such rules made my day :D !!!
Back to the whole walking thing , we kept walking and walking !! Yes, we stop here and there for few photos and selfies :P and yes we had so much fun !!! The place was pretty steep and do visit it only if you are physically fit :)
:D this was a spontaneous one !! so not ready for the click !!
We were walking for a very long time and had to climb over rocks where we finally reached a natural spring!!! :D The water was so fresh and so clear that I did not feel like moving away from that place :D
We climbed further up till we reached the entrance of the cave :D Honestly ,the view was amazing <3 it was worth all the walking and climbing we did :D
Beautiful view isn’t it ??? :D
:D love this
The name “Edakkal ” comes as the cave has been formed between two rocks :) Nature is truly beautiful :)
Do see the video that I took when the guide was explaining about the calligraphy and drawing found inside the cave :) I hope it would be helpful for you :D Also do ignore my and my friend’s voice now and then :P
We had to return back :(
When we were going back we stopped in few shops to get some Tea and we bought some really good homemade chocolates too !!! Yeppie !!!!!
On the way back we met two lovely people :D The lady Petricia ( that is what I think she told me *fingers crossed*) and her friend ( forgot his name :( ) were really sweet !! I love the head-dress she was wearing and the overall graceful presence she had :D
My friends and them , we had a short conversation , just chit-chat and we left :D
Love this :D
Finally after all the chaos I managed to look fresh and happy at the end of the day :D !! Well that is what I thought , we immediately left in a intercity express to Kozhikode Station !! “Bad experience” is what I can define that journey as :( No negative thoughts on this blog so I am just gonna leave that part of the travel :)
Such a radiant face :D
