There are some great holiday destinations that are an overnight journey away from Goa. Wayanad in Kerala is one such beautiful place to visit. Pristine and clean, just like its name, Wayanad is an enchanting and hypnotizing piece of paradise. The land is filled with history and culture. Located at a distance of 76 km. from the seashores of Kozhikode, this verdant hill station is full of plantations, forests, and wildlife.
The senior managers took an overnight train from Margao to Calicut (Kozhikode), a journey of 9 hours. Then, they rented a car and drove up into the hills to the Petals Resort in Wayanad. Early morning journeys are always splendid and beautiful is what they had to say.
The drive took them through a lane with plantations on either side – banana, eucalyptus, coconut trees, and coffee plantations with the hills providing a picturesque backdrop. “A breathtaking view indeed!”, exclaimed one of the managers.
Leaving aside the beauty of this little paradise, the team went all crazy over the infinity pool at the resort.
Though the day peaked at 31 degrees with a little humidity, the team loved the fact that they were safe from the scorching heat, in the cool pool water, gazing out at the hills and enjoying every bit of their small vacation.
Can you imagine soaking into a pool like this, with an amazing scenery around you?
Wow! Simply overwhelming, isn’t it?
Adding to all the amazingness, the team had a chance to witness the rare occurrence of the coffee blossoms. This is because they reached Wayanad the day after the first rains of the season and it only appears after the first showers.
How lucky are they!
The number of stories they carried along with them… oh my! It surely says they had a great time there.
With vast areas still unexplored, Wayanad is truly an escape waiting to be discovered!
