Day 32 ;

Patnem beach!?

So when you come from somewhere like gokarna its seems so weird to be in a place that has been built up for package tour holidays and so many British people, we have seen one British person before this, to then be surrounded by all British it seems a little strange to say the least! You travel half way round the world to be in a mini England but with sun and sand!
We arrived quite late in the day and settled with the third place we saw and the cheapest!

Ran to the sea and went on the hunt for other accommodation, found a place near the end of the beach for 200 less so we will be staying there for a bit! It has a western toilet which is a massive plus!

Day 33;

We woke up after a terrible nights sleep, there has got to be a train track very close as we heard its horn at various times through the night which is always nice, people talking extremely loud and dogs barking for no reason at 1,3,5am.

So I woke up a little dosy and stayed like it all day, feeling sick and not good! We took a walk to check out our next beach on our map. They had a dodgy music video being recorded, never seen so many people trying to do the same dance but all out of sync, quite amusing,also quite strange to know that you are standing there watching something that will be on mtv! so we walked up and straight back along the beach, we have decided to give Palelom a miss we thought Patnem beach was tourist! We are still hoping to find another gokarna along the way so fingers crossed!

One thing to remember was that there were so many dog's on Patnem beach and at random times during the day they would all gather and do a little howling sing along, quite funny really

and for all the bad bits, wking up when no one is around, watching the sea drinking the ritual morning tea felt super peaceful...its gooooood! {Claire has got that little snippet of Jim Carey from Bruce Almighty and has been using's GOOOOOD!!!}
