Who's going?


Join me on a weekend getaway to rejuvenate the body and the soul in verdant Kerala.


A languid cruise in the meandering backwaters of Allepey. A trip down the spice route in Cochin. Interspersed with all the good things in life - food flavored with the freshest of spices and wholesome ayurvedic massages.

Take the time to freeze the day to day frenzy and forget the deadlines - you could start the day with meditation and yoga by the lakeside. Or you could just sleep in with no clock, email or person claiming your time and attention. Take a weekend to calm the wandering mind, reflect and recharge.

We start in Kochi ( previously known as Cochin) - this city was the gateway to the Indian spice trade. Like the many trading hubs that dot south-east Asia, Kochi became a melting pot of cultures 600 years ago. Arabs, Dutch, Jews, Portuguese and Chinese all had settlements here joining Kochi to the Asian trading routes. From these culinary influences and the freshness of spices and coconuts was born Kerala cuisine. We will spend the day with a walking tour of Fort Kochi area and a sumptuous lunch.

From Kochi we drive down to Lake Vembanad to stay at a luxury resort (www.punnamada.com) with great lake views and sumptuous food. Over the next day we will have opportunities to visit Alappuzha (Alleppey)  for an excursion, try our hand at cooking Kerala food by the lakeside and book in a Kerala Ayurvedic Doctor consultation and massage.

From the resort, we will take a luxury houseboat tour meandering aimlessly through the backwaters of Kerala. You can read a book, see the water flow by or people watch as school children ferry hop home. The lunch and snacks you keep getting pampered with on the boat keep you suspended in a blissful state of well-being and general contentment with the world.

Reach out to me if you want to know more about the trip. Few things I suggest if you want to get a flavour of this trip :
- Join me for a Kerala meal here in Singapore. Once you have shown your interest to join the trip - I will let the group know where and when through whatsapp
- Read a book - I always love to read a book connected to the place I am visiting. So my suggested read for this trip is The God of Small Things by Arundhathi Roy. Her use of language just takes me to verdant green Kerala every time.
- Try a recipe. Will mail out a simple Kerala fish recipe for you to try at home. And that will be the recipe we will cook when we are in Allepey.

From Your Champions 
We heard from you that you are interested in trying out new kinds of adventures. So when we heard about Vinitra's idea, we immediately recognized she is such a great add to our group: If you want to feel like a queen or kind and indulge yourself, Vinitra can show us that and show us how it can be done in India in a safe way we wouldn't have known. - Lee Ling Chong

This trip is organized by our friend Vinitra. Vinitra's trip augments our list of activities. It brings us another type of adventure holiday, not just the physical adventure, but adventure of the different senses. Savouring the local authentic cuisine n experiencing the local way of relaxing the body, mind n soul while immerse into the nature. It's really a different way of exploring India culture. - Georgina Chin
