A travel blog entry by haukimn


After a stunning train ride through miles of tropical blue sea and coconut trees I reached the shores of Kochi (Kerala state) at 5pm on 21st December after a pretty standard 20+ hour trip. As usual, my ticket ended up being to the most obscure station furthest out of town or the one not mentioned in the guide books but after a rickshaw ride which …

We decided only to stay a couple of days in Varkala, because we're heading back to Kochi (to the Fort Abode Hotel, with posh swimming pool!), then on to Munnar for a 3-day trip to the tea plantations and hilltop station.

This gave us one full day in Varkala, which we spent by having a lie-in, late breakfast, then heading off (with our backpacks, in the sweltering heat!) down to ...
