Lovely snaps laluks. Kumarakom is in my pending list to visit sometime

I know this place is mainly for good sea food, but How about the food options for strict vegetarians? Do we have pure veg restaurants. Any idea..?
I don't want to starve and enjoy the place

The best bet I think is the resort where you stay. That should give you the best option.

I would also suggest the same Ravi. I did not notice any mentioning pure veg, probably people from there can give a hint.

If you take out the "pure" veg restaurant tag, Kerala meals everywhere has a decent spread of veggie items including sambar, curd, some two vegetable side dishes. Morning you get Idlis, dosas with sambar, Puttu with kadala, appam with veg curry/stew in most places. But they also do serve non-veg.

After reading this travelelogue, I checked your profile to see what is your profession
:-) I was expecting that you are doing some business, but to my surprise you are not. Then how do you manage to make many road trips..? another question how is your family (especially children) getting used to these road trips..?

Though profession does affect/ influence the plans of vacation, it can always be sorted out. Provided you know how to handle things in the small window both at the place you are going and at the place you will be coming back to

But being a manager does have some advantages
If the kids are used to such beautiful trips from an early age, then I would think it will be difficult to NOT say no to them for another trip! The big advantage of road trips/ train trips and in general traveling is that it is the best teacher and teaches the most essential things that is required in life: Experience!

Hi Lalu Sir,

Great pictures!!! I must say that your composition of photos is really good. I really loved the bird photographs. It has come crisp and clear and the composition also makes the photos look artistic.

Thanks for sharing.

Well, trade secrets cannot be shared
Family is quite supportive and they always look forward for the next drives. The trips kind of breaks the monotonous routine, and we love to wait for the next opportunity.

That's the key, and you nailed it right

Thanks Voyageur.
Don't remind me of Kallu, Kappa, Karimeen (Toddy, Tapioca, Pearlspot). I will just take off. I just did not have enough!

Hi laluks, great travelogue and superb pictures !
The ones from Kumarakom Toddy parlour is tempting me to drop my laptop and run all the way from Bangalore to Kumarakom, what a spread, yum ! . The house boat cost seems reasonable and looking forward to you sharing the contact number of the guy who runs it. Kumarakom was in my list of must visit places, but was forgotten due to my work schedules, your travelogue is urging me to plan something in immediate future. Thanks

Hi Lalu,

Thanks for coming up with this travelogue.Thrilled to see the description of the shappu. And now counting my days to reach Kottayam. A fortnight to go.

How was pathiramanal? Last time, I went there, no one was there. We scrolled the island for half an hour,but couldn't see any birds, leave alone the human beings.

Have you taken any photos of the Thanneer muckam bund?

regards,

bbhavan
