'Calicut is one of my favourite places here. I have many friends here and the food is amazing. Kerala porotta is my favourite.' Travel Vlogger of Back 2 Life, Nikolay Timoshchuk Jr. aka Mallu Niko is all full of love and at a loss for words when asked about Kerala. Cleaning the beaches, wearing mundu (dhoti), learning Malayalam, Niko is now more a Keralite than he has ever been. Talking about coronavirus and Kerala, he applauds the state government's activities. Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, Niko wishes to explore more of Kerala especially Idukki, Munnar. Also he looks forward to the Thrissur Pooram next year.
