I got to see some pretty cool things during my stay at Sivananda ashram in Kerala, India. The ashram organizes day trips on Fridays so visitors get to experience the surrounding area during their one day off a week. Each of the trips were under $20 for the day, included food, transportation, and were super relaxing.
