The first week of the month of June is a good time to drive through Karnataka and Kerala. The monsoons were just starting off, at least, that was the case this year when I drove on that part of the country. When the monsoons are just about to start, there are a few preliminary showers, which ensure that the forests are green and view outside scenic. At the same time it hasn’t rained so heavily as to cause any misadventure during the drive.
It was during this period that I drove to Payannur for a friend’s wedding with some friends. After the wedding, we drove around to nearby ‘islands’. Calm and green were these places, beautiful to drive around the coast – Madakkal and Kavvai
