I'm finally in India, after literally months of not bothering to organise myself I'm actually here! First a big thanks to everyone who helped me get here but a special mention to my Dad for a full week of 9-5 graft helping getting the house ready and to Mr Miller for joining in and getting me over the line.
So it turns out I wasn't ready for India, and it kinda kicked my ass for the first few days. My flights were both delayed, my bags got lost for several hours and it took forever ...
... views unlike anything we've seen before, and paths undisturbed by any other tourists. That night was the first England World Cup match, and Ails and I got up at 3am in great anticipation. With hindsight the lost sleep that night was definitely not worth it!! Next, we jumped on a train and headed south to Fort Kochi. During our four weeks south we became quite relaxed travellers and failed to book anything in advance... So much so we always ended up with general tickets ...
... York American was staying in our guest-house and had previously met the girls so Lauren and I were introduced. He is 35 and has been travelling India for over a year. He has wispy brown hair down to his shoulders and covered by a bright blue cap. Large spectacles are perched above a scruffy beard and moustache. He talks about movies. Almost to the exclusion of all else. The list of names he has dropped borders on some kind of psychic assault on whomever he is talking ...
... next station. The trains are basic but the breeze through the windows was amazing. Our second train wasn't quite so peaceful - was absolutely rammed but we managed to squeeze on a seat. It was so so hot and we were getting a little tired and hungry by the time we arrived in Varkala especially as when went to get changed Laura found 15 mosquito bites on her legs - a mosquito must have got inside her MC Hammer trousers!
... station , it was deserted , oh apart from the staff sleeping on the floor ! Every time the phone rang one man got up with a light and went onto the platform followed by a woman with another light , this was to flash at an oncoming train to tell them the tracks are clear. The women on 2 occasions then looked our way and said ' Where you going? ' I replied ' Mangalore' she shrugged and then went back to lie down.
The train was an hour late ...
