I kayaked for the first time in my life just over three years ago. I took a kayak into the backwaters of Kerala near Thattekad. I fell in love with it- floating over the water noiselessly and watching cormorants fly over my head was something I’d never experienced before. I wanted to keep on going- the kayak felt like an extended part of me.
I can’t kayak where I live so I try and kayak every time there’s the least opportunity.
