Cool company, meet other tourists from all over the world, beer in the weekends :)
As mentioned, I am writing a book, a historical novel with an interesting theme - 'how to live the perfect life'. Now I have a few themes that I believe if they are adopted in daily life, should lead to a more harmonious existence. So, I wouldn't mind volunteers to have a peek at the book while they are here, and put forth their ideas that can lead to a perfect civilization. Hopefully it will lead to a lively discussion, which should benefit both parties.
Also, we can use the opportunity to talk and share experiences, hopefully leading to a deep friendship.
We are only interested in those who can genuinely help. No slackers invited.
General help around the house, especially raking the garden in the morning, room cleaning, helping enter tourist data in register, computer, etc. There is always maintenance work needed at home--painting, art work in the theme rooms, painting of walls, carpentry work, etc. Also, as mentioned earlier, the owner is writing a historical novel, in English and so needs volunteers who have completed creative writing courses who can help proofread. Those familiar with and are experienced in the use of grammar, tense, style, passive voice, show don't tell techniques, and other writing tools would be the right candidate.
Room with bathroom attached, fan provided, exclusive, no sharing with anyone.
Bfast, lunch & dinner provided. Breakky - toast and two scrambled eggs, tea. Lunch - same as host - usually rice, two veg dishes. Fish or chicken every couple of days. Dinner - chappathies and veg dish.
Alleppey is the center of backwater tourism in Alleppey. Nice to take the local ferry (very cheap) and explore the villages that dot the beautiful scenic backwaters. Also as we are close to the beach, you could simply stroll down there to catch the sunset.There are a couple of other beautiful beaches not too far from the town - the Marari beach - 20 minuteness drive is really beautiful.
