Once Upon A Time In Goa

No scorching heat.
Less people.
Beautiful weather.
Drink up at the shacks.
Walk bare feet on wet sand.
Dance in the rain.

At Goa!

That's an ideal vacation for me. What more could I ask for?

I've been to Goa during summer and winter, this was my first trip during the monsoons and trust me - it tops the list! We had packed shades and sunscreens, and none was put to use.


We had booked our stay well in advance at Citrus Hotel, Calangute (5 mins walk from Calangute beach). Pleasant stay, I must say! Good food, prompt service. Also, don't expect the hotels to have rooms available just because it's off-season. Guessing there's no particular season to visit GOA! 




Get into a flip-flop mode (or bare feet mode) and stroll on the beach. Enjoy the pleasant weather, the rains, the tides, the cool breeze, and what not! We walked from Calangute beach to Baga and back! 


The shacks open in the evening but to our pleasant surprise, few were operational even in the morning (good for us). Grab few drinks at random shacks, relax and enjoy the sea view! 



When in Goa, get wasted! But make sure you have someone who can take care of you. :-P

Dress up, go for candle light dinners at the beach shacks, grab few chilled beers and splurge on sumptuous Goan cuisine. (Major missing happening here). Don't forget to shack-hop!


Buy things off the streets, like few neon bangles! 


Once you're buzzed, play 'ring the bud'. Being normal is too mainstream. SO GO CRAZY!


Time to go back! I'll miss you, GOA. Till we come again!
