Once, A Long Time Ago, We Went To Goa

There is nothing more satisfying on this planet than…

….scrimping and saving…

….working like a donkey…

….just to go on a spectacular adventure….



I remember when Hiro and I made it to Goa in India.
Part of our trip was spent in a beach hut:

Yes! That is the very one!
It was right by a little backwater that looked out onto the Arabian Sea. Not exactly a picture of luxury but it was clean, airy and comfy and about £8.00 per night.
From here, we watched kingfishers swooping down on little fishy suppers.

A little structure made of bamboo.

A bed with a view!

Our own bridge to a paradise beach.

Just us.
We hit this part of Goa, known as “Mandrem” at the very end of the tourist season so there were no other people around for miles and miles.

See that blob in the distance?
That’s me!

Clean sand.

After all these years…I still look at this photo and sigh.
The unaware beach seller with her many wares cuts a lovely shape against the sea and sky.

The bridge at night.
Goa has some gorgeous sunsets.

We loved visiting markets.
Indian markets are an experience.

Goa is thus far THE most colourful place that I have had the pleasure of visiting.
Everywhere you look is alive with spectacular hues, it’s much like being in a kaleidoscope, or so I imagine.

I remember that we ate like kings!!
Food was so very cheap!

I would very much like to return to India sometime.

I hope that you have enjoyed this little snippet of our past?
I wonder if you would like to see more of our past adventures in the future?
