Heartiest congrats on your new found "pluralism". Your delay in post by two weeks is justified. But still I think you are getting too much time to post on Team-BHP just within two weeks.

Hearty Congratulations Krishna for your marriage and wish you a wonderful life ahead

Its a brave decision indeed to take the car for a honeymoon drive. I too wanted to drive to munnar in 2007. Unfortunately, my parents did not allow me at that time

Hope you had a great time. Waiting for the other posts to follow

Hearty congrats to you Krishna.

Good write up and nice first set of pics.

Could not resist ROFL regarding the instructions of your wife...

Keep them coming and all the best for your future!

Day 3: 6th June 2010

This time I was successful in getting my wife up and ready by 5.30 am for the boat safari. We headed to Thekkady from Kumily which is about 5-6 kms away. Waited at the check post to buy the entry tickets.

There was another queue for the boat tickets. We bought the upper deck tickets and off we go at 7 am for a 2 hour boat safari. Though the water levels were a bit low, both of us had high expectations of spotting a few tuskers at the least. But luck had something else in store for us.

We spotted a few wild boars, a couple of birds and a herd of Bisons.

Then on the way, it was time for a nap close to half an hour as it was boring with no animals to be spotted. Woke up when we almost reached back the boarding place. It was time to head back to the hotel to pack up things and leave from Thekkady to Munnar.

Drove via Pooppara to take the NH 49. After driving about 4-5 kms on the NH 49 one can spot the Anayirankal Dam. Need to take a sharp U turn and drive down for about a kilometer to reach the dam. The water levels were pretty low.

Drove back to the NH 49 and continued driving. The Kannan Devan, TATA tea factory was visible and here we go with the pic

Reached Munnar and reached the SN Deluxe Properties where I had requested to block a room. It was misty and a good weather for the evening to be spent. It was time to relax for the rest of day in the room.


Day 4 to be continued

Hey Krishna, Many congratulations on getting married and being already house trained . I'm sure your wife would have too many complaints with you

Your Honeymoon reminds me of my honeymoon which was a 1500 Km - 10 Day road trip as well. Even though she started out in the front seat at the start of the journey, by the 3rd day her place to sleep became the rear seat and I adorned the job of the driver which I haven't been able to relinquish till date.

Anyway, all the best for your future term and keep the posts coming

Day 4: 7th June 2010

It was a lazy cozy cold morning to start off with. This made our schedule go a bit hay wire. With lot of perseverance the new home minister agreed to finally get out of the bed and then head out to see the places. Wifey is dead against the cold weather. Nevertheless we decided to visit the Ervikulam national park and the Luckam Falls. Headed for an early lunch and then we drive off to the Ervikulam national park which is about 12 kms from Munnar.

The roads though in decent condition, I decided to drive pretty slow, enjoying the cool weather. We reach the Ervikulam national park entrance and it was time to buy the ticket and head to the Anaimudi in the bus service provided by the forest department of Kerala

The Pics will do the talking, getting tired of typing.
