Why Do We Take Vacations To Get Tired? – Kenny Sebastian in Kerala


So let me tell you exactly
what this video is not. It’s not a stand up video,
it’s not funny. It’s not high energy.
It’s not a video which will like… Whoa! It’s actually completely opposite of that. It’s a calming video
with a lot of silences in it. With barely any music. and no context. So if you are not looking for that you can stop watching it right now. But if you were like “Hey Kenny,
I just want five minutes of peace, man!” Then yeah, this is your kind of video. So this is my weekend trip
with Naveen Richard, who is my flatmate and we’ve decided
last minute to go to Kerala. And Kerala’s a very important place to me. Because it’s… been a teacher,
without me realizing it. Every year, in my childhood two months was in Kerala and I took their cleanliness and the people’s education and their ‘syncness’ with nature for granted. ‘Syncness’ is not a word, I know. Also why this video,
cause I shoot a lot. I love shooting. And I don’t edit most of my travels because editing is hell! So I was like, why not finish this one? Because the trip is very important. Because it made me realize
something very basic. (Radio announcer speaks in Tamil.) (Note: At the Borders of Kerala , People speak Tamil as well.) Back on the road.
You’re gonna drive, buddy? Oh yeah! It’s my turn to drive. Yeah! Baby driver. Come on, baby! Come on, babe! You know the last time I drove, man I took down a government. I took down a government, man. I’ve been very lucky
to travel the world. And to exotic places. But I always came back more tired. What happened? Why’s it doing that? Press the brake and start it. Once you’ve driven a four wheeler before… Four wheeler… But this last minute trip to Kerala
was so calming. Because all I did
was spend time with my friend. Chilled and pet a lot of dogs.
Naveen has two dogs. Footage of dogs. This was a trip I really needed. And we did nothing.
All we did was, eat! Yeah! So we’re gonna do a double egg, double curry, six “parothas”. Two teas. Bang bang, shebang man! We are one hour away
from our destination. It’s one hour, huh? Yeah! Oh! Sweet. Yeah. Oh, you’re supposed to call that guy. Yeah, it’s busy. True. Correct, correct, correct. Awesome, da. Maggi! And travel in this wonderful car called ‘Brezza’. Brezza. Breeza! I’m not a big fan of the car. No offense to the people who made it, but I just… I mean, I grew to like it now. I miss…her… We decided to go to his house
and then we chilled. By chilled, I mean, ride his jeep. It’s awesome to be on a jeep. You feel like you’re Indiana Jones. It’s just like an adventure. Very uncomfortable, but adventurous. After lot of off roading, which surprisingly is a breeze.
Brezza managed. Off roading. Managed it. But yeah, at the end of the trip I just realized so many things about Kerala, I took for granted. The cleanliness. The forest officials really care
about Kerala, back there. You know, everyone in Kerala is pretty much
in touch with their surroundings and I still don’t know why it’s called
“God’s own country”? Which basically means
“God hates every other state?” Wait, it says… “God’s own country.”
Wait, it’s not a country, it’s a state. Oh, I’m just realizing. I just realized that. ‘I could feel it in my bones.’ Hey buddies! Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy? You’re a stinky little fellow. You’re a stinky little fellow. ‘I know that I am so much better.’ ‘Better off.’ ‘I know I’m so much better off.’ Anyway, I hoped you… I don’t know. Did the video calm you down? Did it leave you
in a nice chilled feeling. I hope it did. Well this trip did and I just wanted
to share that feeling with you. Not information. If you liked it, please like it. If you share it, just share it. And if… If you have a wonderful memory
of travel that actually relaxed you, comment below. Not a trip! Like, a travel that relaxed you. I would love to know. Have a good day guys! ‘I’m alright.’ ‘Might be shaken, but not stirred.’
