So, what do we do when we plan a holiday at a new place! We Google! And what’s the first search we run? ‘Best time to visit’ isn’t it!
Yup, that’s how I started my journey to Goa & even though the search results would tell you the ideal time to visit is from October to January, I must say that Goa in monsoon is equally mesmerizing & fun.
A warm and affable Mario, who would not just be our chauffer but also a friend & guide for the next three days, greeted us at the airport and took us on an hour long drive from Dabolim to our guest house at Sinquerim through lush green landscape of Goa dotted by towering coconut palms and a serene Mandovi river that flows past the city.
Set around tropical flora, our quaint guest house was a perfect getaway from the hullabaloo of metropolitan cities. Just as we entered our room and started to unpack, the amiable amicable owner of the guest house along with his son and staff, came in with a freshly baked pineapple cake to celebrate the birthday of my Mom. Could the day be any better!?
