About Me

My photo
I dream of wandering wild, walking along the woods plucking fruits, laze around sublime landscapes. I feel alive when I'm out there basking in the sun, watching new horizons. I'm in search of little joys that keep me revived. I wish to belong in places where I can quench my thirst drinking from brooks, spend the day chasing butterflies, sipping honey, stopping by to coo with the birds. I am in love with cloud-kissed mountains and flowery meadows. Freedom is what I crave for! Set me free so that I’ll come back to you… I'm a dreamer. I believe that my dreams will take me to new places. This blog tells about my journeys and people who had been a part of them..

Munroe Island - An unruffled backwater getaway!



Munroe Island is an unspoilt backwater getaway in Kerala located about 25km away from Kollam. The island derived its name from Colonel John Munro, a resident of the former Princely State of Travancore.  It is believed that he had contributed to formation of the integrated canal system. The narrow waterways are adorned with diverse flora & fauna. Coir making, prawn cultivation, toddy extraction, canoe tourism, fishing and coconut farming are the major source of income for the natives. This region witnesses the confluence of Ashtamudi and Kallada rivers. The best way to experience the serene ambiance & laid back lifestyle of Munroe island is to go for a canoe ride. The best time to visit is early morning or before the sunset. There are train services available from Kollam to Munrothuruthu station at fixed hours.
