Haarish's Trip to India
By Haarish M
The primary goal of this journey was to reconnect with my roots by visiting my home country and reuniting with friends and family I haven't seen in a while! It's all about rediscovering my culture and relishing the little things that I've missed about home.
My Indian adventure centered around exploring the captivating cities of Trivandrum, Cochin, Alleppey, and Kollam. Trivandrum greeted me with its vibrant markets, while Cochin offered a blend of history and modernity. Alleppey's tranquil backwaters were a mesmerising escape, surrounded by lush greenery. Kollam, with its serene landscapes, provided a perfect mix of relaxation and exploration. Each location contributed to a rich tapestry of cultural immersion and unforgettable experiences, showcasing the unique beauty of southern India.

From aromatic street food in bustling markets to rich, home-cooked meals, the diversity of Indian cuisine was a constant delight. Coupled with the breathtaking scenery, from the tranquil backwaters of Alleppey to the historic landscapes of Cochin, the combination of delicious food and stunning vistas made my trip unforgettable.
