India has been on my mind a lot lately–mostly because one of my best friends has been living there for four months and she finally comes back to the States next week. I can’t wait to see her and hear all about her trip. Ever since I visited Rajasthan in the northern part of this beautiful and complex country, I’ve been dreaming about returning. And next time, I’d plan an adventure in the south. So when I read this piece about Maria Russo’s recent trip to Kerala, it reignited my wanderlust for the destination. Check it out (and the beautiful estates where you can stay, like Serenity), along with Fathom’s awesome list of the 24 best travel blogs and websites, which just came out this week. Some of these sites are already my favorites, but others are new treasures for me. I can’t wait to explore them all! Happy travels.
