On this site you will find: lovely shops to find antiques and vintage clothing, places that serve Afternoon Tea, breathtaking weekend getaway ideas, and wonderful events to head to with friends and loved ones. I hope this site will make your life more beautiful:) Ahhhh, the Keys. As soon as we set out from Homestead to begin our drive through the keys, I set my Pandora to The Beach Boys and filled the rental car with classic, tropical tunes for the next couple hours. Our first stop was for lunch and jet skiing in Key Largo at the amazing Jimmy Johnson's Big Chill at Fishermans Cove , WOWZA, you're not going to wanna pass this place by. :0 The view is as amazing as the food. Do try the Fish Tacos, they're perfection in the hot sun with a glass of chilled white wine and plenty of water:) Definitely sit water side on the deck and watch as jet skiers and boaters wave to you from the water:) If you get too hot after... I'm telling you, this place had it all and then some:) After we hit the bathrooms for a much needed salt water rinse, we got dressed and hit the town. Next Stop- The Ernest Hemingway House and Museum :) Built by a Sea Captain in 1851 in the Spanish Colonial Style, the Hemingway home stands tall and brilliant along Whitehead Street in Key West, Florida.
This island town that still exhibits glimpses of its glorious past can best be described as a colonial melting pot. Kochi became prominent when a natural port was formed after River Periyar flooded the Muziris port at Kodungallur, north of Kochi in AD 1341. Centuries ago, explorers from world over and foreign invaders landed on this tiny island, a ferry ride... Be it the narrow lanes, the fishing nets, the cemeteries, the palaces, the churches, the antique shops, the boutique hotels or the umpteen number of cafes, Kochi emanates more foreign flavours than the local ones. This colonial influence has been the impetus in churning out Kochi, aptly named Queen of the Arabian sea, into one of the top travel destinations in the country. Venduruthy bridge greets as you leave the mainland to cross the Vembanad lake into Willingdon island that connects Kochi with the mainland. Various fragrances hit you as the road winds its way through the bakeries of Thopumpady, the spice markets of Mattancherry and the sea food stalls of Fort Kochi. Areas in and around Fort Kochi and Mattancherry are collectively referred to as Kochi.
