merry to go around

usually a post on a holiday in goa would begin with the sea, and end with the sea and there would be many mentions of the sea in between all of that too… words about the lovely beaches, the lovely sand, the private beach which you couldn’t reach, the lounging, the shacks, ‘susegad’, the packed shacks, martin’s corner, sunset at betalbatim, interspersed with vegetarians cribbing about the lack of options and the meat eater canoodling with ‘children of sea’, but it always comes back to the sea and the beaches… the white… the blue… the foam… the froth… gentle waves… silent… peaceful… calm… this year, we muddled up the mix. we went to goa in the monsoons… so whats the big deal?

this picture says it all… and we encountered it everywhere… so the one main reason to goa was wiped out, but we wanted to see what else we could do…

this is a chalet (yes, i said that right, a chalet) set on the banks of the river mandovi, it doesn’t get better & bigger than this. this is one of those places you do not want to tell anyone about, you want to hide so that it stays hidden and only yours! sigh, so i am letting out a secret…

a very atmospheric place, the ambience lends itself to a large gang screaming for a loud party or to a soft conversation to be held on a stool by the window or a heavy breakfast to be had…

two places off the goa tourist map: budbudi tali & tambdi surla

Brilliant article, about 2 places in Goa, BUDBUDI & TAMBDI SURLA

merry to go around

we started the day early (atleast by goan standards). we had to cover great distances in one day, and had to get cracking, immediately. water bottle filled to the brim, camera battery charged, petrol filled in the car we headed out from bogmallo towards the south of goa by 10am. we were traveling right across the state!

one must say that the roads in goa are brilliant. they are beautiful – winding in and out, going up and then dipping down, large green trees flank the roads, monsoon weeds and creepers run amok along the side of the road and there are spacious stretches, followed by tight one-lane roads right through the town with bungalows on both sides… and monsoon makes all of this just sing with that greener green of the plants and the blacker black of the roads. added to that, the roads are not ‘pot-troughed’ bombay ones…
