It was a trip with my favorite gang. Ten people were to go for it but two busy singles opted out of it so it ended up being an eight people couples' trip. By the way Alleppey wasn't our first choice. We were supposed to trek to Munnar Top Station and stay there for a couple of days but the trek got cancelled due to heavy rains and also, we incurred some losses with train/bus bookings and also trek advance which I'm yet to get as of date. Anyways Alleppey suited the bill for everyone. Everyone had transport from their place and we booked for it.
Day 0 - Start with a twist
Most of my journey would be in train and if unavoidable, by flight. I avoid buses for most part but thanks to the mess which happened during Tatkal ticket, I booked bus this time. It was costly, uncomfortable plus annoying as I was constantly getting a feel that this happened because I couldn't take Tatkal.
