How did the idea for Wayanad trip came Preparation for the trip
The trip to Wayanad rose in one of our family friend’s minds during a family get-together. When to go & how to go, everything planned very fast. It was a 4 days tour to Wayanad.
Preparation for the trip & set off …
All of us started preparing for the trip after that day. Everyone organized a tempo traveler with necessary items. We started our journey on May 10th, 2015 night. We were three families, a total of 11 people. Everybody was very thrilled. We started at around 8 O’clock. On the way, we had dinner at a hotel. Since it was a night journey, we took our turns, to give company to the driver to keep him awake.
Visiting Ooty on the way to Wayand.
We reached Salem in the morning around 7:00 am. Here we stopped at a hotel to refresh and had breakfast. All of us continued our journey further.
According to my father’s idea, we took the route through Ooty. The plan was to see Ooty also. Climate was good. On the way, we saw tea plantations. The long view of Ooty was mesmerizing.
One side it is deep down, and the otherside high places. Our driver was a very skilled person. We bought homemade chocolates. Local people were selling fresh carrots on the sides of the road, and we even saw some people selling raw honey.
While climbing the hairpin turns, my mother had motion sickness and some friends had it too. At Nilambur, we had to stop to take a Permit pass for the vehicle, because we had not taken that from Chennai. Seeing my mom’s condition, one nearby family gave her some hot rice porridge. We took a rest for a while, then continued our journey.
