I love travelling without a pre-booked route or accommodation. I totally trust an old school map on my lap and my gut feeling when I talk to people. And yeah, I do bring an extra bag for my analog equipment.
Kerala is also called India light and it's probably right. It was a perfect start and I totally fell in love and I'll be coming back, for sure. Our route included Fort Kochi, Kannur, Wayanad and of course a tour on a house boat. Do I need to mention the food? Soooo good.
I must admit that I found Marrakesh absolutely amazing but I loved the country side so much more. The Atlas, the Anti Atlas, these endless landscapes like from another planet.
Travel-wise kind of a side step for me. Just an additional day after a wedding at the Côte d'Azur.
