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.
For the skeptics, you could view the amazing picturesque of Rainy Goa in some photography done by me. Click here DG Photography
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.
Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside ev’ry darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

It was an official trip to Pune and there I clicked some of the images of the Pune city. I love one thing about Pune city is that the city is in touch with old and precious monument and there is a sense of relaxation whenever you enter in Pune.
Visited kwality Restaurant on East Street which set shop way back in 1956. Needless to say, this place has many firsts to its credit. The ambiance of the restaurant was good, and the interior design of the restaurant was in touch with old scripts and designs.
Passing by Pune I managed to clicked some more photos keeping the old theme in mind 🙂
16 April 1853 was the historic date when India’s first passenger train journey took place between Bori Bunder in Mumbai and Thane. Covering a distance of 34 kilometres, it was hauled by three locomotives, Sahib, Sindh, and Sultan.
Google is commemorating that momentous event with a celebratory doodle on its India home page. The India’s first passenger train journey shows a steam locomotive pulling a passenger train on a palm-lined railway track.
