It was a Diwali long weekend, and since we were not visiting our family – don’t judge me 😀 – we planned a long weekend trip to Kerala. Kochi was the first leg of the trip. We planned our stay around Fort Kochi, which takes about an hour and a half from the airport. As we were planning to spend just a day in Kochi, we had booked a very basic homestay to freshen up and rest the very night we reached. Since we did not have an itinerary in place, we quickly Googled ‘Things to do in Kochi’, and looked up a few places to roughly plan our day. We decided to walk around the area and explore as many cafes as possible.
