I went from Mumbai to Kerala by train. About six years ago now, so can't really help on details but it was a nice journey. But budget airlines are really cheap. Last time I flew. Not as characterful, but a fuck of a lot quicker.|
Spend a couple of days in Panaji - capital city of Goa. I absolutely love it. It's like a Mediteranean town dropped in India. I stayed at the Alfonso Guesthouse first time I stayed - basic but insanely friendly. Then at the Panaji Inn the next time - really nice.
Pachyderm Palace in the hills to the north of Kerala was unbelievable. Nicest people, right next to a really quiet nature reserve, surprisingly untouristed. Saw elephants in the wild. That was cool.
Also stayed at a vaguely expensive but absolutely beautiful boutique place in the middle of the forests in inland Goa. Quiet. Really, really nice for a few days. Let me know if you're interested and I'll dig out the details.
