Going to Goa

22 Nov

Taking full advantage of being in India (for work), Claire and I squeezed in a weekend trip to Goa (for fun). I never get sick of beautiful beaches or perfect sunsets or straight-up indulgent relaxation. We booked a hotel on Canacona Beach, which is a good distance south of the main city and the more touristy beaches. No drugged induced hippy trance rave parties for us. 🙂 We had a minor hiccup with Kingfisher canceling our flights for the trip but got it all sorted out by taking a flight through Mumbai. On the upside, we found these gems at the Mumbai Airport.

No vegan doughnut from Babycakes, but it’ll tide me over.

We arrived around 4 pm on Saturday and in order to maximize our beach time, we quickly headed out to the beach which was conveniently steps from the hotel. We had just enough time to get our daily dose of vitamin D and catch the gorgeous sunset.

Even the stray dogs on the beach were super chilled out. Cuteness!

The restaurants at the hotel weren’t much to write home about, but the fruit stands on the beach were awesome. Claire got a whole pineapple sliced up and I got a GIANT coconut and mini bananas. Perfect snacks to have in our cabanas.

It’s hard to believe that the countdown of my India trip has begun. I only officially have four more days of work before I fly up to Delhi to meet Jamie and Shauna, for our tour of the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur). I’m so excited to be reunited with my lovely ladies. Oh my how time flies.
