    A charming home stay, given a warm welcome for the one night we stayed here - decent home cooked dinner on late arrival was no trouble and breakfast was okay too. Room very spacious, lots of antique furniture. Toilet/shower was quite small and basic, okay for one night only. We didn't have the time to pop into the nearby village centre but it was within walking distance and looked like it was worth a visit - we were heading off for an overnight boat trip, on reflection would have preferred to have just done a day boat trip and stayed longer at Tharavad.

    Landing at Cochin, we were collected by Chacko who was to be our driver for the entire time in South IndiaKerala river village life. A very cheerful chap, excellent English and very proud of his region, quite an ambassador, but very scathing of the politics/corruption of northern India which, in his opinion, left the north a lot poorer than its …

    (Houseboats are mostly conversions using the hulls of the old boats, which had previously been used to transport merchandise round the backwaters. In the old days they had only open hulls and were propelled by poles (punting) and sails. They started being converted into houseboats about 15 years ago and there no longer seem to be any used for transporting ...

    ... way we went to the birthplace and church of St Kuriakose Elias Chavara. They are incredibly proud of this local hero who was actually made a saint in Nov 2014, during our time here in India. The original house, which dates back to 1805, has been incorporated into the church and you can even crawl all around it. It seems to be a bit of a tradition that every single time I go to church I end up going for a drink afterwards so we stopped at the Palm Beer ...

    ... especially sailing on the backwaters of Kerala, that would have been a shame and totally unadventurous of us. So, after a very comfortable night, the next day it was back to Delhi Airport to fly to Cochin with Indigo Airlines and all went smoothly, I think the G&Ts the night before may have mellowed us.
