Through my lens:

I visited this place along with my friends in July 2016. It was a stop-over before we headed back to our hometown and I must say that this was one of the best decisions we made. We took a bus from Ernakulam to Fort Kochi, due to traffic we took longer than expected to reach our destination. We reached late in the evening and we checked into Bastian homestay. It was well kept and homely with traditional wooden furniture which definitely gave us the feeling of being in God’s own country. It was the perfect place which fitted our shoe-string budget. We kept our luggage in our respective rooms and headed out to have some local cuisine. We walked around until we came across a hole in the wall restaurant. By the way, this kind of restaurants often offers the best food. Being in Kerala one must definitely try the beef dishes and fish curries which are mouth-wateringly tasty and flavoursome. Their signature delicacies are dishes which use coconut and curry leaves giving it a distinct aroma and zest. Of course, we Indians know that coconut and curry leaves are two main ingredients which have a long association with Malayali cuisine. We ate till our tummies were full and relished every morsel. It was a satisfying and much-needed walk, back to our homestay. The owner of the Homestay gave us a map and a pamphlet which had a detailed information as to what to do around Fort Kochi. A control freak that I am, I began planning our trip meticulously that night. However, my travel plans were met with few raised eyebrows. My friends’ idea of travelling was going with the flow and “chilling”  and my goal was to check things off my travel list. This was going to be interesting, I thought to myself as I prepared myself to sleep.

Kochi: The Queen of the Arabian Sea

Hello, my fellow explorers. I come from the Ernakulam side of Kochi, India. Sadly no, not the side where you can find the remnants of the Portuguese colonization and the European settlement. I come from the rather, “metropolised” (if that’s even a word), side of the district.
