A big thanks for planning an interesting mix of holiday experiences.....
The interesting mix of experiences which Tijo had arranged for us; the excellent accommodation, especially the home stays and the house boat; the friendliness and willing help of all the Indian people whom we met; the scenery and the climate.
The way that Tijo monitored our holiday at regular intervals, and we were particularly impressed that he accompanied us to the airport at such an early hour.
A very comfortable hotel, with friendly staff.
Hotel: PAPPACHAN'S HOUSE We re ally enjoyed ourselves and felt as though we were treated as honoured members of the family. Wonderful meals. We shall definitely go back As Lonely Planet says, this is one of ten travel experiences you should enjoy before you die! It was so interesting to see how people related to the lake and canals: the first time we had ever seen a school boat, as opposed to a school bus.
House boat : VEMBANAD HOUSE The crew were very friendly and the food excellent. Another lovely house, with wonderful food, and again a delightful child, who entertained us a lot. We walked to the village and returned by auto: how nice to be welcomed by everyone whom we passed in both directions.
And thank you Tijo, for arranging for us to arrive by houseboat. That was very special. POLLETHAI BEACH . A relaxing end to the holiday.
