... we went back to our homestay to pass the time reading and relaxing before heading off to the train station again. We hopped on the train and off we went to Varkala, a beach resort town set atop a beautiful cliff overlooking the beach. We kept our eyes peeled for the big bright yellow wooden signboards that would let us know we had reached our stop. Finally I spotted 'Varkala' on the sign, and told Em "this is our stop" we started to quickly get our things ...

Copying everyone else; legs crossed, finger and thumb making a circle with hands placed on our knees, and your back ...
Left Varkala today after an awesome few days getting pummelled by the biggest waves we've encountered yet, chilling on the beach, the Chai Championship crowning Jess victorious, Tunagate and our worst photo effort yet. We were having such a good time we totally forgot about the camera all together....Oh well, I'm sure there's only so many pictures of Steve with water coming out of his nose and me asleep on the sand that anyone ...
