Kerala delights bloggers on tour!


A quick look at them and you might think they are delegates for an international conference — their hair and skin tones and features are as varied as it can get. However, they are no delegates, but young travel bloggers from 21 countries spread across the globe. The group of 30 was picked from a contest held by Kerala Tourism and reached here for their two week visit a few days back. All they need to do is wake up every day and hop on to the bus, where they will be taken to a new destination each day, without being told where.

Among them are travel and adventure bloggers, food bloggers, photo bloggers and even a ‘vlogger’ (video blogger) but they couldn’t have chosen a better destination, they say, as Kerala seems to offer something for everyone. A very energetic and excited group speak about their experience in Kerala, and what they will take back home.

Kerala is India for beginners!

It’s their first visit to Kerala for almost all of them, while some have been to North India. But all agree on one thing — Kerala is different from the rest of India. “The nature and landscape here are so different from the rest of India. We can’t believe it is not an island, there is water everywhere!” says Alexandra Kovacova, a full time travel blogger from Slovak Republic, who wants to tell more people that travel blogging can be a career.

Most of the participants are from Europe and America, but there are a few from other Asian countries and even one from South Africa. Micaela Rodriguez from Philippines found the landscape very similar to her own country.
