Next stop on our tour south was the jungle of the Western Ghats, where we spent two days in bungalows in the depths of the Masinagaudi Tiger Reserve at a resort called Jungle Retreat.

... and served on a hot plate. Delicious! This is also where the cocktails started with strawberry daiquiris. After food holly, Neil, Bani and I went to rock n roll cafe which is Varkala's version of a bar with Moroccan style seating, a small dance floor area and the do was an I pod but the music was good and the cocktails were £1 each! Needless to say we took full advantage of the drinks and had a little dance too. Highly recommend this place for a holiday, my favourite place so ...
