The lack of Sunlight (not complaining), The Sand and The Rain made it all worth it..!!!
It was my first trip to Goa with my amigos. This trip was planned almost 4 months in advance. The Primary agenda of the trip was to have loads of fun with the true flavor of Goa, enjoy the endless stretch of beaches, soaking in the sun and sand quite literally. Apart from that, we also wanted to do the touristy things; visiting of churches, shopping etc. Many of my friends were opposed to going during the Monsoon on the pretext that there is nothing much to do during the rains; however we still made it and no regrets whatsoever.
We began our day by zipping through the coast during the day and were totally mesmerized by the view- lush green fields, towering palms and not to forget THE BEACHES..!!. It’s hard to enjoy driving in the rains in my city however this was thoroughly enjoyed here in GOA. There is something totally mesmerizing about GOA and has as a very welcoming feel to it, no matter where you are from, you feel you belong here. The best thing is that we could park where we wanted. A line that comes to mind, “No one can ever go hungry or thirsty in Goa” and how true it was..! When hunger or thirst struck us, there was an endless choice of food joints to choose from and they were absolutely pocket friendly. Due to the torrential rains, it was difficult to click photographs and made it difficult to carry our “materialistic friends” i.e. Mobiles, wallets, cameras but thanks to our protective gear. We explored the length and breadth of Goa, making pit stops at various food joints and yes the beaches. Last but definitely not the least, we visited the hyped “Casino Pride”. What can I say!! It stands true to its name. It was not just an awesome experience but a dream come true.
Monsoon isn’t the best time to be in Goa, SAID WHO?? If you may ask my opinion, I would say, Monsoon is also the best time to be in Goa because the it’s the rains which make the beaches all the more beautiful add to it the mesmerizing climate, the cool breeze and the bright clean greenery around.

A complete flashback of sorts while penning this down. To sum it up, it was one of the best holidays I’ve had with some awesome friends and the lovely Goan’s. The time spent there was truly exhilarating and this is one vacay that will not be forgotten ever.
