Brave Adventuring And Fully Justified Fleeing

I knew we were getting packed lunches today but I always worry that I'm not going to be given enough food and I'll wither away and die in minutes, so we got up especially early to get our overpriced park entry tickets and get some breakfast in our faceholes before we went to the border [...]

Cutlery Is For The Weak

Ok, so, whilst I was looking for somewhere to stay in Alappuzha, a friend recommended the amazing Alleppey 3 Palms Guest House which only cost me ₹350 per night and this included dinner and as much tea and coffee as my bladder could take before it went on strike in protest, and there wasn't even [...]

Another option [...]

The Elusive Tiger. Really, Really Elusive

I rocked up to Hotel Aditya and was informed by a ridiculously cheerful bloke wearing [...]
