Postcards from Kerala: Looking back at Pre-blogger life

Of course there are tons to write about Kerala. Apart from the 2 weeks itinerary, amazing food cooked in coconut oil, the dense jungle of Thekkady it was the people of Kerala took won our heart. Here are the postcards from the trip, when I was 2 years younger. Kerala travel blogs and photos helped me plan the DIY trip. I hope I inspire one of you these days!
