Waking With the Sun on the Tea Plantations in Munnar, India
You were lulled to sleep by the sound of the rain on the roof; now you wake, the sun glowing over Anamudi Peak in the distance and reaching its golden fingers through the windows and into your cozy, kitschy room at Zina Cottages. You walk out into the small garden, framed by an ornate, white-painted fence and breathe in the freshness of the dewy, tea-tree covered hills. These are some of the highest tea plantations in the world, nestled in the peaceful mountains of Kerala, India. Despite their immensity, stretching as far as the eye can see, you feel that you have come home.
