After one gets settled in life, it becomes difficult to go back to the life of a vagabond.
And yet, all one has to do is to let go.
Me and my wife are now on a similar trip to Kerala where we don't know where we would go or stay or travel to. Would be using public transport and still aim to be to places where few people go. The Western ghats would be in their full glory during monsoons. We start today ie On 19th August from Trivandrum and move around, northwards. The end point is Bangalore as we fly back home from there on 25th afternoon. The remaining days are in God's own country. Please feel free to drop your wishes and inputs because whatever we know of this place is by hearsay and online reading.
Thanks

drk, I have not seen your posts before so I don't know your background. I did read your profile, and if you intend to truly , "hitchhike in Kerala with wife" it is a bad idea. Assuming you are going to stick your thumb out and hope for a ride.

You and your wife are young and it is not safe. If you were by yourself then it would not be a problem.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Hitchhiking in Kerala with wife

So far so good. Reached Trivandrum at 1 30 am. Went to Kanyakumari to catch the sunrise. Returned to Trivandrum and visited Padmanabhaswamy temple. Now off to God knows where. Planning to stay at Varkala for the night. Thanks friends for the inputs.

See if visiting the Padmanabhapuram Palace could be possible and the fort near it.

Are you back from padmanabhaswamy already? If in the area, then go towards the temple, on the left is an entrance (almost on the left bottom edge of your photo), and entrance to a museum, if it still exists - should have a large Roerich painting inside.
