Travel Blogs from Varkala
I had approximately 10 days before the Yoga Teacher Training Course started on Dec 11. During this time I met Nataliya who happens to share the same birthday as me. She was in Agonda taking a few days break from where she currently resides in Varkala, another beautiful beach destination in the Southern state of Kerala. Varkala reminds me a tad of …
Happy New Year!!
Hope the new years resolutions have almost been forgotten and the snow has melted!
I am well and truly settled into my new home down south and have fallen head over heels in love with Kerala.
My 17 hour train journey from Bangalore to Kerala's capital Trivandrum wasn't as bad as i thought it might be. I …
We finally remembered to take a picture of the Ambassador, India's classic taxi written about in all the books taking place in here. (For you Jacquie, now I will work on filming head bobbing or perhaps demoing it when we get back.) The Ambassador dropped us off at the train station so we could travel south to more beaches at Varkala. Nothing much …
On the 5th we caught the 8:45am bus to Kattargaraka, should have arrived around 2:30pm but the bus had a problem with its tyre so we ended up stranded in the blazing heat waiting for it to be fixed.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Signature offered me a free standing bungalow. It is clean and quiet but sits a few blocks walk from the main strip. If it hadn't rained it would be fine, but I struggled walking through the puddles each night to make my way home in the dark.
They have wifi but only in the main building with no common area to sit. Price was competitive but I would prefer to stay on the strip next time.
Like most places there is no hot water but they provided a bucket upon request.
