This morning we were up and out by 5.30am to start our journey to Alleppey. Somehow I managed to sleep through my alarm so had to get ready really fast!

We got a train from Varkala to Alleppey which took a couple of hours then got tuc tucs to the canal where we boarded a boat taking us through the Kerala backwaters. On the way we passed lots of houseboats, rice fields and some colourful houses. The scenery is really beautiful; it's very green and lush and feels extremely peaceful.

We're here for one night staying in a family home which so far has been a great experience. The family are so lovely, kind and generous and they seem happy to have us in their home. The women cooked lunch for us which was really delicious - nothing beats a home cooked meal.

I'm currently relaxing at the side of the canal admiring the view and enjoying the peace, could definitely get used to this...
