Taking the ferry at Vypeen Island to cross over to Kochi Taking the ferry at Vypeen Island to cross over to Kochi

The usual scene at the ferry jetty at either side, whether at Kochi or Vypeen island. People rushed to get into the boat to get seated for the maybe half an hour ride. For shutterbugs, the ferry ride is a good investment to capture some photographs of the Chinese Nets offshore.

Vypeen island is a long stretch piece of land north of Kochi. The main attraction is the quite isolated Cherai Beach on it's northern tip, facing the Arabian Sea on the West. Chalets dotted along the beach catering to all budget range.

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
