Just can't wait for it

Posted by Avadhoot Nasikkar on Saturday, 14 May 2016 0

Come summers and scorching sun locks us in our apartments and we feel like running far away  from our home to take refuge in some cool water as staying indoors really becomes killing. Blazing sun shall keep on ruling the city till pre-monsoon showers bring solace for us and hence nothing is better than getting away from the clutches of the blistering sun to a sea shore.
And when it comes to a sea shore, no one can ignore Goa and its enchanting  beaches  but what drags me down is the huge crowd flocking to Goan beaches. But dropping the idea of visiting the paradise of the earth just because of the crowd, would never be a good idea and thus visiting Goa but not to its highly frequented beaches, was the best-of-the-both -worlds solution.
So, Calangute and Anjuna were a big no-no and names like Candolim and Dona Paula were topping my list.
When it comes to air connectivity, there is a lack of direct connectivity  for people like me living in smaller cities and hence we people need to rush to bigger cities to catch a flight to our destinations.
Gone are the days  when one had to drop-in at travel agent’s office to schedule his travel-planning and this too was always prone to some inherent risks and uncertainties especially while visiting a travel destination during its peak months. The mere thought of your reservation standing cancelled and you traveling from one hotel to another and the reception crew turning you down with ‘no accommodation’ reply coupled with their routine sorry face, is a big nightmare  for a person on a holiday.
A great vacation means everything is properly planned and scheduled and it should be a hassle-free journey without any remorse and regrets. I searched online for flights schedule and found two options-either board from Mumbai  or Bhopal. Had the connectivity been available I would have chosen Nagpur as it is less far from my city despite it being a spookingly hot city during summers and temperature there just desperately jostles to make a half century. The absence of this option made me to settle down with the Mumbai option.
So, I should be boarding on a Spicejet Airlines flight at 1220 hours on Wednesday after next and the connecting flight shall reach Dabolim airport by 5 PM and Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort shall be providing the pickup service.
By the time I shall step on the Goan land, it would almost be an evening and therefore I shall restrict myself in the vicinity of my hotel and shall be devoting my next day to the Candolim sightseeing. What matters the most for me is Candolim beach being relatively peaceful than Calangute and Anjuna beaches besides its pristine beauty and water sports activities. It would be great to witness and capture the sunset, sand texture and its picturesque coastline.
Getting pure vegetarian food in Goa is  quite a challenging task as food joints serving vegetarian food often use the same cauldron with oil to cook vegetarian and its non-vegetarian counterparts but ‘Online Restaurant Search And Discovery Services’ providing websites shall be well taking care of it.
Dona Paula Bay would be the next on agenda for Friday. Though this place is referred to as ‘Lovers Paradise’ but a tragic love story trails behind it. Dona-the daughter of a Portuguese viceroy, had fallen in the love with a local fisherman and was forced to commit suicide when her family disapproved her love. This place was named in her memory. It is rumored that a faint image of her wearing a white necklace has been witnessed by quite a few people.
Friday evening shall involve some light roaming to nearby places and no tiring long walks as next day I shall be catching an early morning Spicejet flight at 500 hours and the connecting flight shall drop me to my city at around 4 PM.
I am eagerly looking forward to this rejuvenating journey of fun, exploration and happiness.
