The area has a selection of really nice beaches and we spent most of our time soaking it up as Gokarna will probably be the last time we are on a beach for quite some time.
From Gokarna we wanted to head south to Alleppy by train. Buying a train ticket should be quite simple but the Indians have decided to make it inconceivably difficult.
Somewhere on our ticket there was an error, so we were told that we would not have a seat reserved on the Alleppy train, even though we had paid up front for the ticket. After some discussion the station master did let us get on the train, although could not guarantee us a seat.
We took the gamble, and after a little bit of searching we found two seats. We were extremely grateful to get them as I could not imagine what it would have been like standing on that train for 15 hours.
We spent the 13th on the train and arrived in to Allepey on the 14th.
