Most overrated place in Kerala, all because of this beautiful film called Ordinary. Its a single road, one-way from Ranni which goes via Gavi to Vandiperiyar. On the way there are 5 water dams and power stations associated with it and I guess thats the only reason a road was constructed in the middle of… Read More Gavi

Previous day I visited Kumarakom and halted in Kottayam in my sister’s place. Morning I started from Kottayam towards Kollam.

Got my new ride – Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. After selling my old bullet and living without a ride for sometime, I badly wanted one. I took Himalayan, Thunderbird, Triumph Street Twin and Interceptor for rent to test drive. Street Twin was the best but at three times the price of Interceptor. Finally chose Interceptor,… Read More Interceptor 650
