My Goa Trip Memories Continued……

And here starts my story of the first day after my arrival to Goa via Bombay. After the guide reached our lodgings in the morning, we all decided to explore the beaches of Goa first. Last night we had done some research work on internet about the beaches of Goa, the best we liked was Baga beach. We asked the guide if it would be fine with him if we start with Baga beach. The other well-known beaches like Candolim and Calangute we’re not much far from the location of our abode and hence were not in our priority list.

Day 1 at Baga Beach: The Baga beach was exactly how I had imagined it to be. My goodness! Beautiful shores! There were so many people around. So many people were lazing on the sunbeds taking sunbath. Some were running and playing in the water; some were drinking and dancing on the music and lot more activities were going on. Even little Kids had no fear of the sea. I too was getting excited after seeing all this but was little scared of going into the sea. Huge waves were coming towards the beach. Water was creating large gushing sound. My friends were very thrilled and were running into the deep water.  Scared as I was, I decided to stay away from the sea.  And sitting there on the shore I was screaming on top of my voice, “Don’t go too far, you might drown, and no one will notice you in such a big crowd” But all in vain, no one paid any heed to me and I was alone with my fears!!

After a while, I did unwind and with little courage I could muster, I slipped out of my loafers and waded into the water. Awesome! That was my first reaction. It was so relaxing. The water felt great. This was just a beginning; we spent almost three hours there. After that we went to Candolim and Calangute beach. The view was identical, so we didn’t stay there for long.

We were not in a mood to come back from there but then we were to go to other places and discover the beauty of Goa, so we reluctantly decided to get back. We had great fun! Before coming to Goa, I took a digital camera and it was very handy as I clicked lots of photographs as the memories of this trip. Some of the beautiful photographs I am publishing in this blog as well.

I have just started telling my story and I realise that this post has become too long. More interesting stuff later…

  1. Your reaction to the sea is similar to mine as a mother watching my daughter going in for the first time. She was overwhelmed by the waves, which ultimately stole her goggles from her forever. THAT, she couldn’t reconcile. I hope to travel someday, I enjoy long posts, especially about one’s travels. I can live through you, thanks to WordPress.

    • Hey Jeanette thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment. Hope you’ll enjoy the upcoming posts too as its not easy to cover up the travel experience in a single post 😦 . Have a great time!

  2. I recently swam out to some buoys on FL’s west coast. Getting back was tough, the current kept putlling me back. I swam in a diagonal direction and eventually made it (what a workout). But I could have easily panicked. Your fear of the water is not really irrational.
    I couldn’t go in the water at Calangute because I was solo and the place was mobbed (nowhere to put my valuables). I did manage to go to the very north of Goa, to Arambol beach, was much more relaxed up there.

    • Hi, thanks for sharing your thoughts, yes you are right that it’s hard to manage if you are alone but it was easy for us we were traveling in group. We have also been to other beaches like Anjuna and Vagator which were a bit peaceful and relaxing than Calangute.
