We left Trivandrum via the train at 5am the next morning which was not ideal as we were still weary from the all nighter and stress associated with our flight from Sri Lanka, but the Chai tea full of sugar which was offered on the train managed to wake us up! We arrived in Allepey ready to relax on a luxury houseboat for the day and night. The boat was amazing, just the retreat we had needed! We spent all day relaxing on the lounges at the front of the boat, eating amazing food, drinking cold Kingfishers and taking in the beautiful surrounding, including palm tree lined waters. We didn’t want to leave the next morning!
