Fishermen throwing their nets into the backwaters for a catch Fishermen throwing their nets into the backwaters for a catch

Taken from a chalet facing the backwaters at Cherai Beach; a three-kilometer stretch of sand shoring the Arabian Sea on the northern tip of Vypeen island. Being quite isolated, it is a quiet getaway from the busy streets of Kochi.

The sea beckons visitors for a swim, while a handful of peddlers and hut eateries dotted the beachfront. In the morning, the fishermen got up early to cast their nets either on the backwaters side or by the Arabian Sea for a salted catch.

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...
