One winter, I visited India for 14 days. Given the vastness of the country, and the plethora of exciting places to visit, I fought the temptation to construct an itinerary that spanned too many places in too short of a time, especially since I only had two weeks in total. I restricted this trip to Southern India. I arrived in Mumbai then quickly went to Kerala (backwaters) and slept on a houseboat. Next, I visited Munnar, which is rich in tea gardens, followed by Madurai — a quieter town. Upon returning to Mumbai, I visited the nearby hill-station Matheran. Below are my photos in chronological order.
