Hello Dear Readers,
Many of you pinged me asking where I was, Thankyou. I was off to Goa on a vacation with my little one. Since I was all nervous because it was her first holiday and first time travel by flight, I did not find time to blog. I also had a lot of preparation to do.
Overall, I should tell you that we had a great time and with good planning you are sure to enjoy with your little ones. So do watch out this section for more on what we packed, what we cooked for her, her flight journey etc in the next few days.
This was my 4th trip to Goa. I should tell you that I love Goa, the fact that you can wear what you want, the shacks, food, shopping and everything. We hired a bike and wandered around with it. So we would go out early mornings and evenings as afternoons were too hot. Hiring a vehicle is a good idea as you can come back to your hotel everytime your little one gets cranky.
In the beach they hire beach beds for Rs 100 an hour, its crazy everything is money there. But then its good to rest with your baby under the big umbrella and watch the beach. Dont forget your sunscreen. The shacks are awesome to grab food but you need to know what to order so google, google n google. I just remembered the idea ad “no ullu banaoin”.
Calangute and Baga are really full, so we chose Candolim beach during most of our trip as its calm, quiet and very clean. Do try the “Chiken tikka wrap at Alex’s shack. The eateries around Candolim are the best, you have so many varieties better than all the other beaches that I have seen.
We stayed at a beautiful Indo Portuguese home called Quinta Da Graca which was around 3 km from the beach. But we still chose the place as it was quiet and beautiful and a rating of 5 from tripadvisor is not a joke. Its a beautiful house and the hosts are friendly and warm people who take great care in serving you well. The rooms are spacious with all your needs and a spacious balcony. We enjoyed the calm and quiet ambiance and its extremely clean. So my Lo could do all her crawling and the fridge too was handy to store all her food. They do offer you their kitchen to use, but I carried a very cute electric cooker with me which I will be reviewing very soon.
So I have lots more coming up… So when are you planning your beach vacation??…
