... a couple of shopping trips into Varkala town, it is busy, busy, but I really like this side of India, it never ceases to amaze me what you can buy in these little shops. So many of them appear to have the same stock, I wonder how many of them can make a living from it. I wonder if that is the difference, in India if they can make a living it is good, sometimes In England, people feel they have to get rich from business ventures, when making a living can be enough.

... Fingers crossed. Yet another scenic train journey, the hours passed quickly, we tried out some train food, it was lush. We arrived in Varkala and were approached by a rickshaw driver, in traditional Keralan wear, basically a sheet wrapped round the waist... we agreed a price, and jumped in. He asked us if we needed a place to stay, Naomi was slightly reluctant, but I thought we should check out what he had to offer, we'd heard stories of people paying ...
The normal yea that you get served like at breakfast at the YWCA is white and sweet +++. J says it is like hot ice cream, M thinks they add condensmilk, you have to specify tea without sugar and milk served separately the it is served in a glass with a tea bag, you can add your own milk, which is always hot. We had a super duper stay in Varkala on a cliff over looking the sea.

For the next half hour, the streets of Kollam were assaulted with an non-stop barrage of red spit, kinda like my mouth was a semi-automatic paintball gun full spraying everything in site. It was only the lure of a delicious chicken dinner at the famous GeeBees restaurant that forced me to spit the magic pouch out.
We scarf down our food on our stroll to the beach, which was still buzzing with locals hanging out on a warm March evening. Finding a nice quite ...
... souvenir. Then on the ride back, I got to drive the boat, like 5 other people. After we got back, I went and rented a DVD. Then we ordered lunch. I got Fish and Chips. Then, I just watched movies on my laptop. At around 5:30 earlier today, all the adults went for a walk. I was watching a bunch of movies and I got bored. So I went to look for them and we all arranged to go to the cottage. When we got there, we ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue Water Beach Resort Varkala
We stayed in a non AC chalet, set in pretty gardens with a sea view. Our bed was comfy and the fan and water both worked well. The best part was listening to the waves crashing on the shore and walking just a few metres to a small but surprisingly clean beach, which we shared with fishermen hauling in their catch in the morning, and mending their boat during the day. There is a great coastal path running in one direction to Varkala where there are shops and restaurants along the cliff with the beach below and in the opposite direction past a couple of small resorts to Edava. We had lunch and dinner once and the food was good, but the menu is fairly limited and there were other places within walking distance. They are building some new chalets behind the restaurant which are much closer together than the existing units.
