... is nothing to write (or blog) home about (but we are about to anyway…). It is a village with some overpriced hotels and tatty restaurants, some of them very rundown. It is very busy with traffic from big coaches and lots of taxis, going around the tiny centres’ one way systems honking their horns in the usual Indian way. There’s no real traveller atmosphere and we were frankly quite disappointed as we had expected it to be somewhere we could have hung out for a ...

... winding road up and up to Munnar. We saw monkeys along the way before the first glimpse of the tea hills. They were mesmerising; I couldn't stop taking photos. We stopped at Karadipara to take some photos and bought mini tictacs which caused tremendous excitement for me and Vix.
We then went to a team museum which I am sure was very interesting but by this point we were all so shattered so enthusiasm was waning. We watched a video on how the ...
