Mahindra XUV 500: Surf N' Turf

Just a little behind us was a yard to break up old ships and boats. Seemed as if this was both, birthplace and final resting place for ships. A yin and yang of sorts. Our final stop was around 180km further south to the scenic yet modern Cochin. Heading straight for Fort Kochi, perhaps the most scenic part of the city, we were welcomed by a place that could easily be mistaken for a small European town.

The old Portuguese architecture combined with the newer French-inspired construction makes Fort Kochi look straight out of a painting. It’s a place where a man dreams of settling down after he’s done with the bustle of city life. It’s also a perfect place for a date. Just the kind of time we needed with the XUV 500, before we headed back.
