A Return Journey to Heaven – Goa
“Wanna have fun, boozy nights and herbal noons……….coziness of the sea and delight of the beaches………..that’s what i said wen my buddy asked for a break” ,lolzz.
I don’t know what brought me think about this, the same moment he finished his words, I was like “ Its Go..Goa… we’ll head for Goa”. All agreed & what now, just excitement, wait, day-dreams.. blah… blah… blah…
And then, the day, for which we were waiting like it’s the only day for which i have been aiming for, has now arrived. Reached the platform with my two friends, moved for the seats and prayed to GOD “ Hey, God Almighty, with the blessing of your wisdom, you made us bring together to enjoy an awesome creature of yours, It’s Goa”
In the way, we’ve seen and then expected the unexpected. All that greenery and long length tunnels were just life long memory moments from Mumbai to magaon railway line. They are purely irresistible like a dark chocolate.
“Hum kis Galli Jaa rahe Hai, Apna Koi thikaana Nahi” Wow.. singing, cheering, enjoyment, time waved, we reached our Destination by Night around 11.50 PM. Now we are in Goa. After having a night stay at Sea facing Hotel at Colva Beach.
The very next morning, after the light snacks.We hired bikes and moved on for the everlasting experience towards Panjim and then to Calangute Beach. We saved the day for famous beaches and some nice place of Goa. We headed straight to the Calangute beach. Had some photo shoots.
According to our plan our next destination is “Fort Aguda”. So we planned to have some qualtiy time there in the noon. As the name suggests, it was a place for providing ‘aqua’ to the ship at anchor.
We first went to see the Jail. Took a snap and headed back to the main fort. Fort Aguda is surrounded by sea on one of its side. The other sides have huge trenches built in and made accessible via a single path. It has open space in the middle surrounded by huge walls. The tank is situated in a corner near to the entrance. We roamed around enjoying the views and capturing the memories in our camera striking poses. The view of the sea from the fort was breathtaking. The lighthouse was also visible at a distance. Spend some more time around there and it was time to head back.
“Sinquerim beach”. This is one of the best beach of goa adjacent to the Taj Holiday Village. This beach is was stony, and the view and sound of the waves hitting the rocks was tremendous to see. We can also see a wrecked ship near the coastline (this ship has been there for almost 8 years now. I was told Govt. is finally cleaning this mess up).
We then headed to the“Baga Beach”. Was looking forward for a beautiful sunset and beautiful girls too, but clouds did not make it happen but this may be count as sunset pic After a hiccup at the start of the day, it ended well for the night. Great food, I love Goa…
Now next day is to check the other beaches in Goa. The famous beaches further north are Anjuna and Vagator.
On one side was the Vagator rocky beach, where the water hits the beach creating beautiful white waves. On the other side is the Morjim Beach, where the waves gradually die down before entering the backwaters. There is an extension of the landscape that goes further towards the beach from the fort. We decided to go on a small trek, expecting more breathtaking views. The walk was worth it, as from the end of that, the view was even better. We spent some time there before deciding to try other things out.
The next destination was the “Vagator Beach”. Vagator is mostly a rocky beach. There are different colors of the rocks; the distinct ones are the extreme black ones and the yellowish ones. There were some small street shops where we picked up some memories from Goa. After spending some time there we started getting hungry. Looked for a place nearby and found one. It was home made food, great taste and economical. Sorry that I did not remember the name.
Baga was the beach we liked most so decided to spend some time there. When we reached Baga, some of the fisherman’s boats were returning from their day’s catch. Loved the way they arranged their prized catch.
Their wives came hurrying to assist. We planned for some fun in the evening, to hit the dance floor. So moved back to the hotel to change our dress.
When it got black, it’s time to have some party. So according to our plan and we went to the “Titto’s, Club”. The club really have some fantastic stuff. Restaurant is really good with lovely music. After having our dinner it was time to hit the dance floor. After some initial, we started get going. We were already tired from the days travel, so did not stayed back late.It’s our last night in Goa.
What a great way to end our trip. Had lunch on the way and was finally reached the railway station. The train started on time, and we bid adieu to Goa with some terrific memories.
