Shots N Snippets

Saint Thomas, one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, was believed to have sailed to India and established the "Seven and Half Churches" in Kerala. He is widely acknowledged as the Apostle of India while the Saint Thomas Christians are known as "Nasranis" because they are the followers of "Jesus of Nazareth".

The Christian legacy is widely seen as one goes about in the state of Kerala. This image shows one of the many churches situated next to the waterways of Kerala.

At Kerala backwaters, where the water canals and rivers meander through the state, it is not surprising that water transportation is one of the main ways to get around. The locals use boats to go to work, go to school, go to market, even go to church.

And then there are some enterprising locals who had thought of reversing that. The Floating Triveni Super Store took the extra step of bringing the store to the locals instead.

The web of waterways in Kerala stretches for 75km from northern Kochi to the southern Kollam. Not surprisingly, the longest lake in India, Vembanad Lake, is part of the waterways system. It is also the largest lake in the state of Kerala.

Hello... I Am Josh

A Travel Writer & Photographer from South East Asia

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...
