Fort Kochi, Cochin, Kerala, India

I’ve used both spellings – Kocki/Cochin? as to be honest I’m still confused. I’m grateful we’re hear full stop after a mix up drama with our bus tickets that meant we nearly woke up 100km up the coast in Kozhikode. I’m glad that crisis was averted however as here is lovely. Cochin is one of the main town’s on Kerala’s coast, and is actually a series of Islands connected to the mainland via bridges and ridiculously cheap ferry’s. It’s 2RS for a 15 min crossing, that’s not even pence.

Fort Kochi is really only about 5 streets with cute heritage guesthouses, and Beatrix Potter like teahouses. Our guesthouse is set out the back of a bakery, so you can imagine the hourly temptation to run down and buy chocolate fudge pastries. They are their staring you right in the face morning, noon and night screaming ‘ooh look at me, do I remind you of Greggs/Cooplands much…mmm.’

We potter around here for two days, and spend one at nearby Cherai Beach on Vipen (Vypeen) Island. It’s not winning any beach awards, but it is a nice daytrip and warm up for next week’s beach binge for the next month; Goa.

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
