Flights and trains get you to your destination faster, but road trips end up surprising us with nature especially when we take a wrong turn off the highway. Here are a series of shots from our recent road trip to Kerala.

My kids who earlier preferred the aeroplane as their favourite mode of transportation have now switched over their allegiance to our trusted VW Polo. They loved the scenic forests, hills and the eateries we dropped into during our drive.

Driving through some of the smaller highways in Kerala is an adventure in itself. The roads are narrow and they twist and turn around the landscape. If you get car sick, you’d better take some medication before you get on. Here’s a quick peek on how the ride feels.
