India Jolly

Well it was about time we had a visit to India, especially as one of our friends live there ( no excuse :)
We stayed In hectic mumbai for a couple of nights and then moved onto Kerala but not just any old place a super amazing surf and yoga retreat called Soul and Surf I would highly recommend this to anyone.
The staff are super friendly and very Very cool. The other guest are in the same mind set and we all go out together for evening meals and just hangout.   I can firmly say it was the BEST holiday we have had in ages !
Surfing and Yoga all in one beautiful package. x

P.S I can pop up now all thanks to the surf team! whooohoo. ( although the photo is a bit of a kneeer hubby didn't managed to capture the victorious moment lol)
