I don’t know what it is with me and Trivandrum city. One cant seem to part with the other! Hmph – that last line is the contribution of a friend who never misses to point that out whenever I announce a long trip – “You? Go there? You mean outside of Trivandrum? No way!”
Dying to prove him wrong, I had a Coimbatore trip all planned for the weekend, tickets all ready in hand. And bang, Thursday morning I show signs of an impending fever which by Thursday night was all here!

Same thing happened last month when I was frantically trying to attend a blog camp in Alleppey.
It’s a scary thought! Unable to get out of a city all your life?! Ok ok I took a Thrissur trip in Jan, so its not entirely impossible. Maybe it’s a summer thing, it will wear off. Its not summer anymore? Gulp.


  1. probably you are too attached to the place..i have a cousin of mine who cannot think of working anywhere else but kottayam…maybe am not as attached to tvm as I was 4 years ago but i still crave to work there at some point in my life…

  2. So was that the fever that prevented you from attending the BlogCamp? 😐

    But hey, no worries! Some trip or the other will materialize, don’t worry! 😀 Be +ve!

  3. I have the same problem! But in my case, my attachment is to Cochin. But I still made it to blog camp 🙂

  4. I knw its not much, but as much I’m attached to my Tvla hometown, at times, I try to go somewhere, like, ktym or ekm. (Whoa! Lotta commas there,huh?). Make trips happen dear! Don’t wait for trips to happen!(After u’r fever’s over, of course)

  6. @mathew, well actually not that attached. I will know if I am when I actually live for a while in a different place!

    @Hari, yes it was. I hope your words come true!

    @Binny, lucky you! I actually dont feel so attached to Tvm, well mentally but my body doesnt seem to like the idea of leaving it! Hmph!

    @M.Rose, I know! I should!

    @Sreejith, you spelled it wrong again bro! You dropped a Blore job?! Wow thats quite unlike the young people of today. Hats off bro!
