The good thing about the Ashram was meeting other like minded travelers with whom I traveled to Varkala, sharing a flat at the amazing Shiva Garden for a few days with some of them.
Varkala is definitely a tourist spot, but it is so for a reason, and sometimes is nice to have that vibe around – just be careful as everything is more expensive.
I decided to stop in Varkala for four days, which is longer than usual as I normally stop two days in each place as I don’t have much time. But this way I got to relax a bit on the beach and with the other guys, also celebrating Roman’s birthday at an amazing homecooked spanish dinner 🙂
On the last day we got to see also a small and weird elephant festival at the temple in town which was quite interesting!
Overall, I simply loved Kerala and its people. I couldn’t spend as much time in it as I wanted to, but it was still enough and I denfinitely know where to come back next time I am in India.
