A Case of the Mondays.


Hrmph.  This weather, especially on a Monday, is just bleh.  There’s nothing nice about cold, dark, rainy days on a winter landscape.  You don’t get the feeling that the trees and plants are enjoying the rain as you do during the summer or spring.  The only people that enjoy this weather are hunters, because it makes everything quiet and suppresses odors, but it’s not hunting season.  So who’s happy?  No one.

So here I am wishing for someplace warm, sunny, with lapping waves and soft golden colored beaches and palm trees.  Lots of palm trees.  Oh, I don’t know… someplace like… Kappad beach, 20 km North of Kozhidoke (Calicut), Kerala.

Walk on the beach

Or at least we’ll reminisce. Yall can just tag along for the blog post 🙂

So hop on board kiddos! We’re blogging back to the Motherland!

And what better way to kick off our trip than with an Indian Safari?! How’s THAT for fun, eh?

Since this was our first trip to India as newlyweds (aww – shut it) Somanna’s parental units very graciously gave us an overnight stay at Kabini River Lodge so that we could consummate our marriage enjoy some of India’s spectacular wildlife. But first let me say again a big THANK YOU to Mavi & Pop! Because they rock and deserve a shout out for such a sweet gift.

So we kicked off our Kabini Romantic River Lodge get away with another fun and fabulous road trip through Indian countryside. As you may recall, road trips in India are especially entertaining. Just remember to take your Dramamine. Or plead for the front seat due to motion sickness like I did 😉
