All the travelers out there, definitely have that ONE favorite place!
For me, it’s officially Varkala, Kerala. Situated approximately 45-50 KMs, North-West of Thiruvananthapuram, this place is one of the hidden off-beat beauties of Kerala. The moment you reach there and your feet is touched by the cool Arabian Sea on the Odayam Beach, you get released from every negative thing that may have kept you occupied until then. The reason that this place is so close to my heart, is because of the sparse crowd and the doing-nothing-ness that it implants within me…
The sound of the tides splashing against the shore and the waves rising against the sea, are very rhythmic; as I start listening to the music the sea offers, I slowly wander away to a never-land!
Since, my visit to this place this year was right when the monsoon was entering, it entitled me to get a greater view of nature’s beauty!
During this repeat trip to Varkala, I got the chance to visit the northern part of the place, called the Varkala Cliff, along with my friend. It was the undiscovered city-side of Varkala; being the hub of various restaurants and small shops, this place attracts a lot of tourist, to spend their spare time. Just a walk along the cliff side, keeps you exploring more and more.

The walk was hugely encouraged and entertained by the soft drops of rain touching my face, accompanied by the cool wind. While sitting in one of the restaurants on the cliff, when the rain had just stopped, the various shades of Blue revealed themselves from the sky, to the sea:
and these shades have always helped me get out of my blues of life, just as instantaneously and easily, as they look gorgeous!
Right before bidding goodbye to the serenity, the sunny side of nature was visible; as though smiling at me and welcoming for the next visit soon 🙂
As I’d mentioned in one of my previous posts, that the sea soothes my soul… It really does:)
Tell me what relaxes you the most!
Have a wonderful life 🙂
