We are just completing our stay at Brunton Boatyard in Cochin. We were upgraded to a suite and as this is a lovely relaxing place to stay that was certainly an extra benefit.

Our driver Kuma is great and as he keeps telling us, is with us for 41 days so feels invested in our holiday happiness.

We have already experienced several different environments and it is back up into the hills today for a little cool again, each place has a new element that adds to our whole experience of India.

Our Safari’s at Orange County resort resulted is seeing an abundance of wildlife including a tiger, and when we were at Bandipur we discovered this was because the animals migrate there for the water. So although much less to see at Bandipur we did see a bear.

We have many more exciting experiences to look forward to and we will let you know how we get on!
