    • Varkala and rain in October. Or should I choose somewhere else??????

      India Jul 1, 2015 at 12:07 PM

      I am going on a business trip to Bangalore October 10th till October 15th. My plan is to top the trip with four days on the beach. I was in Varkala 12 years ago and would like to go back there, but I notice the monsoon season is still going on in October and it usually rains 17 days during the month. Of course I do not want to experience bad weather during my four days.

      Shall I dare to book Varkala, or should I opt for somewhere else? Northern Kerala or southern Goa?

      The flight from Bangalore should not be more than an hour, and the beach should not be more than one hour’s drive from the airport. After last year’s trip to Bangalore I went to Goa but this year I would like to try a different part of the country. In Goa I stayed in Calangute, which I found a bit crowded for my taste, but I really enjoyed the beaches of Sinquerim and Aswem nearby. The place I stay in should not be totally isolated as I travel alone, a couple of restaurants and bars to choose from is a must. I am also more into white sand than golden sand.

      Or should I consider the Lakadives???? It looks beautiful there and I loved being in the Seychelles a coulpe of years ago!

      Travelling with an infant

      State of Gujarat Oct 3, 2006 at 4:21 AM

      Hi

      I am going to India on 19 November 2006. I will be travelling with a then 10 month old child:
      1. What baby facilities are available on board Air India i.e changing facilities, food, ideal seats on the plane as I have requested a bassinet.etc.
      2. Is it recommended that I take a stroller to India to transport my baby around and also a car seat.
      3. What should I do about sterilising his bottles.
      4. Should I use bottled water, although my parents who live there do have a filter machine fitted.
      5. can I buy Pampers nappies out there and SMA Powder milk.
      6. What other child safety tips can anyone give me with regards to keeping my child safe and prevent him from falling ill.

      I'm probably asking a bit much but any comments are welcome. I'm a little stressed out about what to take and also how to handle the flight.
