The over night train form Kerala to Chennai wasn't too bad considering the only tickets left were 3rd class. There was a teeny compartment with 6 beds three on each wall. It was cosy but quite good.
When we got to Chennai it was sooo busy at the station and it was huge so we couldn't find our hotel taxi. We ended up paying twice but hey, we got there. Didn't really like Chennai much although I am really glad I went there to see the contrast.
Stayed in the hotel most of the time though because going out was a bit of a hassel but the pool was dirty and really small. Inside the hotel itself was really nice though.
Some of these negative views are probably because I was beginnning to get nervous about flying to Thailand on my own and leaving dad but I didn't get a good vibe from Chennai, none the less.
I'm in my early 20's, from England, graduated from Southampton in 2010, got a job in an office but not really sure of what i want to do for a career. What I am sure of is that I want to see the world! I have decided to go for it and travel solo. I'm not setting off on my travels until January 2013 but very excited...and a little nervous as I've never been outside Europe before. ... full info
