Goa Holiday 2016

Salt air, cool breeze, swaying coconut trees and long stretches of unadulterated beach… no wonder living in Goa seems like a 365 day vacation. However, for the less fortunate mortals like us, we have holidays, and that’s when we try to get a piece of this paradise. Living in Mumbai has its perks, because a vacation in Goa is only a few hours away and it hardly needs any planning.
Last month, I went on an impromptu trip to Goa.
7 days of unadulterated fun on the beaches of Goa is something dreams are made of. And that is exactly what we had planned for.
Having seen and done it all in my past trips to Goa, my agenda on this holiday was simple. Take long strolls on the beaches, play in the sand, indulge in some water sports, hog at the tiny beach shacks, watch the sunset and simply relax.
And that is pretty much how we spent our holiday. Scroll down to see glimpses of my Goa trip.

I bought new flips flops for my Goa Trip. Aren't they cute?


We stayed at two resorts, during the 7 days holiday. But the first resort, the Emerald Palms Resort at Varca, was my favorite. It was comfy, compact and beautiful. I especially loved the decor of this hotel.


I completed the So-Saree ritual that I follow on each of my beach holidays.
Left So-Saree's imprint on the sand. :)
We all know, Goans are colorful in spirit and being, and that clearly reflects in their houses too. Aren’t these houses gorgeous?
I went Scuba diving in Goa for the first time, and it was a beautiful experience. Pin drop silence surrounded by clear blue waters and beautiful colorful fishes. For me it was a very spiritual feeling. I was surprised by the safety procedures and the professionalism of the scuba diving companies in Goa. I totally recommend it to everyone who visits Goa.

Sipping on fresh fruit juices watching the beach and sunset gives me a different high. Whoever said you need alcohol to get high, needs to revisit their statement.
 
The food at the tiny beach shacks is something you should never miss on your Goa trip. The food is yummy and has different flavors. 
Sunsets in Goa are a treat to the eyes. Every evening, when we walked towards the beach, the sky appeared different. Thank God to technology, I could capture these moments and preserve them for lifetime. 

And then I found some time to play dress up and take pictures.  
Did you know that the Indian epic Mahabharta has a reference to Goa and refers to it as Goparashtra or Govarashtra, which means a land of cowherds? How cool is that!!!

I am sure you guys are craving for a beach vacation, because I am already. :)

  24. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention. beach umbrella for chair

  25. Then you need to set up things to do in the area you want to go. You can avoid this buy doing it while your on your vacation, but who wants to do that? I've done it and it was added stress... while on vacation trying to get away from stress!! Then you have to pay for it, ahead of time or while on vacation like I did on one of my trips.

  26. If your trip is to Disneyland, they include tickets to the park. A skiing trip, they include the lift pass during your stay. A day at a car race, great seats that include pit passes. A lifestyle vacation club has value. www.vakantiehuis-dezilverenmaan.be

  27. Majorca holidays - Majorca or Mallorca is paradise. I've been there myself. With an energetic nightlife and astounding picturesque perspectives and sea shores, this biggest of all Spanish island tops Spanish holiday diagrams with more than 300,000 month to month looks for Majorca alone. In case you're searching for a gathering place or a chance to be in the calm encircled commonly, Majorca is your smartest choice. Vakantiehuis Limburg

  28. Unless you pay huge money there's going to be other people doing the same things as you. So why not change your point of view and look at it as a pro like stated in pro #3. You have a commonality with the people on the outings with you. Vakantiehuis Limburg
