Sorry to throw a non-wedding question at you all, but I haven't gotten much feedback from the Nest travel board, and I thought I might have a little more luck. (btw, I wish they'd had this board back when I got married! So jealous!)Anyhow, we're spending Christmas with the family in Bombay, and we're planning to spend some time in Kerala. My MIL & SIL have tasked me with the job of planning the trip.Any advice or recommendations?There will be five of us, and SIL sent me the following itinerary from a travel agent she knows:Day 1 - Fly into Cochin and drive to Allepey. Check into a houseboat and cruise the backwaters. Stay overnight in Cochin.Day 2 - The boat drops you in Kumarakom. Stay for a day. There is nothing much to do, so just relax.Day 3 - Drive 3½ hours to Thekkady. Take it easy the first evening.Day 4 - Do a spice plantation visit and the boat ride in the wildlife sanctuary. Overnight in Thekkady.Day 5 - Drive 4½ hours to Cochin. In the afternoon, relax. Enjoy an interactive Kathakali dance show in the evening.Day 6 - In Cochin, Do sightseeing of Fort Cochin area and some shopping. Evening fly out of Cochin.
