Guess what? This is my 100th post! I started this blog about 9 months ago as a personal project for friends and family to catalog my recipes and to share my travel photos, and I can’t believe how much it has grown and even how much I have come to like blogging. I was surprised to find that there is so much more to blogging than the actual act of blogging, like marketing and social media strategy. But most importantly, I find it is the best way to connect with like-minded people around the world! So here is a special thanks to everyone who has supported me on my journey and those who have been following me from the start, or at any time during my blogging adventures. I really appreciate all the love and support!
In honor of my 100th post I will post some photos of the beautiful backwaters of Kerala, India. The backwaters is a region of five lakes, linked by canals, surrounded by beautiful tropical greenery and colorful house boats. I took a trip here organized by the ashram at which I was staying and we rode through one of the lakes on a houseboat. We stayed only in the lake area, but I have heard other trips went into the canals, and were able to shop for coconuts and fresh fruit on floating markets. The scenery was relaxing nonetheless, and provided us all with a much needed break from our demanding yoga teachers course. Plus, they served us many tasty Indian snacks and treats along the way, so what more could I have asked for?
Yummy Indian snacks!
And here I am! Picture taken by phone so please excuse the quality…
One of the most exciting parts of this trip for me was the ride on the houseboat, as I had never been on a houseboat before! Have you ever taken a ride on a houseboat? Where? Did you travel through the canals of the backwaters? How was your experience?
