Hey guys first and foremost let me congratulate you all for making it to the Salubrious climes.
Wondering where to stay in Varkala? Well look no further and check out the amazingly beautiful property B’Canti Boutique Beach Resort. This place is one of a kind, from its sea facing location to its traditional yet modern architecture, B’Canti truly offers serenity coupled with luxury.
I wanted to experience hostels but the prospect of it always seemed daunting. Being sceptical about the safety and a sucker for little luxuries in life, my heart didn’t brace the courage until recently. And ever since I watched Kangana’s movie Queen, hostels for me meant dorm like rooms with bunk beds, communal bathrooms(Well not really comfy with that). However, many hostels are rather plush and even offer a few private rooms in addition to traditional shared rooms.
Sri Lanka’s south coast is endowed with prettiest tropical beaches which’ll guarantee to leave you surprised and delighted at every turn! Imagine palm trees (and palm tree swings), fresh coconut water, stunning blue sea and honey coloured sandy beaches for days! This was certainly my kinda destination and we decided to explore the southern belt of Sri Lanka rather than cramming in as many places as possible on the island in a short space of time.
Brightly coloured walls, Mediterranean styled heritage houses with high compound walls laden with vibrant bougainvillea vines, neat and clean streets where South Indian filter coffee and croissants go together! Yes it’s Pondichery- A mix of modern heritage and spiritual lifestyle. The French influence is everywhere right from the food to architecture, from roads to cafes and streets to hearts!
“Roads were made for journeys, not destinations.”- Confucius
I think there couldn’t be any better way to explore a place than at one’s own pace. And the fun doubles when it’s an exotic island! Somehow we’ve always loved the idea of renting our own mode of transport during our travels. So keeping this in mind we rented a car during our recent trip to Mauritius and absolutely loved the freedom it gave us. And guys this stunning island surely doesn’t have any wrong turns, only infinitely interesting routes waiting to be explored.
