TravelPod Member ReviewsGraceful Homestay Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.

The city is home to the Zoological Gardens, where Yann Martel based the creatures from "Life of Pi" on. So what with it being quite early still, we headed out to get some breakfast and chai. We had Massala Dosa, a lentil flour type pancake filled with spicy potato. We then walked, what ...
... our skin, is to give them all away.
Yet, as they smile at me, as we laugh in a well of our mutual understanding, what promises can I give them? What hope can I share? What of this experience will I bring home? How will I retain this warmth without the crutch of novelty that India so fully provides? What life awaits me at the other end of this journey?
I’ve gone through it twice; both times presenting a collage of unexpected challenges ...

Next morning we got up extra early and with Debra and another couple staying at her guesthouse, we took a 7 kilometer walk along the beach through a series of fascinating fishing villages. We watched fisherman hauling their boats, essentially three logs tied together with vines, up onto the beach and pick through their nets collecting crabs, prawns, and numerous types of small fish. Hauling their heavy boats up onto the beach was ...
