Sample response

Last month I visited my native place in Kerala. It was the longest journey I undertook in over 18 months. I live in Mumbai with my husband and kids. However, my parents and other relatives are in Kerala. Since I hadn’t seen them in a long time, I was really looking forward to this visit.

Kerala is about 1,500 kilometers away from Mumbai. The journey takes about 24 hours by train. Our train was a bit a late, but aside from that the journey was a pleasant experience. I absolutely love to travel by the Konkan railway. The scenery on either side of the track is awesome.

We spent about 20 days in Kerala and during that period we were busy visiting friends and family. We also visited several temples.

I didn’t visit Kerala as a tourist. It was basically a family affair. But Kerala is one place that every tourist should visit. The state is known for its beautiful landscape and backwaters. The local cuisine is healthy and delicious. In addition, the climate is quite pleasant. I will definitely recommend this trip to my friends.
