Indonesia and India travel blog


The constant travelling from place to place over the past few days was beginning to take it's toll and traveller's fatigue was setting in by this point. From Kollam I therefore made my way to Varkala beach for some much needed rest and to recharge my batteries.

It is a very touristy place, but on first impressions is much more appealing than Goa was (less of the pretentious wannabe hippies). The beach is set against a backdrop of red cliffs and all the cafes, restauarnts etc are on top of the cliff, so good views across the beach). Varkala is also a pilgrimage site and the beach is generally split (Indians to the south and Western tourists to the north). Accommodation cheaper on the south though so better to stay there.

Not a lot to report from here really, just nice chilled lazy days.
