If you want to Travel to India but are hesitant.....come in and speak to me!!

I have just come back from my second trip to India! And have enjoyed the most  diverse range of experiences available!!

Kerala

I started of with arriving into to South India – Kerala, and doing a house boat experience! Kerala is a amazing way to start or end your holiday in India, you will get a whole houseboat to yourselves with a crew of about 3 or 4 (a personal chef, a driver and cabin assistants.) During the day you float down a serene river canal, where the villagers just carry on with their daily life’s rituals along

the river’s edge surrounded by lush green fields and trees. You will find it hard to leave the boat one you get used to having your wine poured out for you and your Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea & Dinner all laid out for you at your requests!! In the evening they dock at the side of the river, where they have Ayurvedic spa’s where you can finish off with an amazing hot aromatherapy oil message’s!! You can have stays of 1-7 nights, and you can hire a 1 bedroom or 2,3,4, & 5 bedroom houseboat!!

Goa

From there we went to Goa to celebrate New Year’s! A party place is an understatement!! The resorts have their chefs prepares the most amazing range of buffet including 50 varieties of dessert!! The beaches are lined with shacks  that provide food, drinks, lights and music blaring from all sides!! They have beach bonfires, Lantern Lighting and Fire works!  Apart from the beach there are lots of things to keep you  busy like the local markets, Churches & Historical landmarks, Dudhsagar Waterfalls,Water Sports & The amazing Spice Plantation!!
