Reached the hotel half way by a small taxi (poorly organised leaving one of the hotel staff members to walk to the hotel from the airport) and half by walking with a hotel boy dragging all the bags. Guy on the night reception desk (4.30am) could hardly speak any English causing us to be delayed getting into our rooms. Even thought Ruchi had booked them 3months in advance to be two A/C room next to each other the night receptionist insisted he puts us in two separate buildings. I'm not sure what star accommodation this is, (if any) but wasn't too impressed not too sure what all the positive reviews are about on trip advisor?!!? The smell of the pillows..... :o! Pretty sure I noticed some sort of stains on the sheets and also might I add the shower room had a leaky butt washer spray right next to the toilet :/

... cricket player (tough one)/ Indian actor (even harder)/ sport/friend etc. They ended with the question about what our "ambition" was..sure gave you some stuff to think about;) Their English skills varied from quite good to none (but most people are still happy to talk to you) and our Malayalum skills were also non existing.

... so we decided to meet up with him. The train arrived to Trivandrum and from Trivandrum we took a rickshaw to Kovalum. Firoz was staying at an Ashram. This is a smaller hotel that usually provides yoga, meditation and sometimes ayurvetic treatments as well. Since we wanted to spend time together we decided to check in there for 2 nights. Really nice and peaceful place where the day started with 1,5 hours of yoga and at nights we had ...
... the corner there was a hidden beach cove that no one was on. We couldnt believe it was there after how busy the other beaches were, and it was only round the corner. We climbed up on the rocks to get a better view of the lighthouse and other beach, it was lovely. We spent some time there chilling out before we decided to head back as the tide was coming in and we wernt sure if the beach would get cut ...
... genuinely wanted some company but better safe than sorry.
So many people here fit the classic hipster-going-to-India-to-discover-them selves-and-get-high-on-the-beach mould. Makes me sick. Feeling quite ready to move on somewhere new now but again we can't find cheap accommodation online so we're gunna just get the train and see if we can find somewhere, yolo.
... only general seating. So we are having a cheap but hot and sticky journey with only the breeze from the open windows and occasional downpour coming in to cool us. We have found that some of the best value for money food is on the trains. You are never short of it being offered either. On longer distance trains the train people come round and take your order for either lunch, breakfast or dinner, then bring it round. It's nice tasty food and always under 100 rupees. Also there is ...
