Weekend Getaways from Canacona
It was during this time of the month that there was a festival in Canacona town that had a 2 km long procession of people on the road blocking the only highway to Bangalore. Our bus left at 6 PM, and at 1 AM the next day, we were still in Goa, stuck on the highway.My friend and I got out, saw that 12 other buses and other vehicles were stranded on the road with no access to a washroom or restaurant. Someone had allowed the people to let their procession onto the road illegally. Since I had worked previously at RedFM and NDTV, I managed to get the ACP of Goa on the phone. He blabbered something about his superior giving the go-ahead and I gave him a mouthful and a peace of my mind. It was my friend and I who drove the police to move the people out of the way so that the buses could continue.Finally, at around 2:15 AM, we managed to get the buses moving with every driver thanking me along the way. I had verbally yelled at the ACP enough for him to turn off his phone for the entire night. We got onto the bus, told the driver that he needed to drive his best. Because of how tired we were, we dozed off instantly. The next morning at 7 AM, we were miraculously in Bangalore! This is one of those few moments in a lifetime that I am immensely proud of. As a journalist, I felt I'd done my duty. I had even sat in one of the police cars and told them I wouldn't leave until they cleared the road for us. Believe it or not, that's what finally worked!As much as we didn't touch the usual in Goa, it felt complete. I'd spent years looking at beaches in Goa, but never had a chance to explore the underrated. And this time, I did it. It felt absolutely complete. But, a few days after reaching back, I realized that there's a whole lot more I hadn't discovered. And that's something I did on my next trip to Goa, but more on that next time!Here's a short compilation of one of my trips to Goa! Please like, share, and subscribe!

The stone decor blends seamlessly in with its natural surroundings and the long bar serves all kinds of drinks. But this isn't just a night destination. You can enjoy its greenery and dance non-stop in the day as well. But its psychedelic lights and lazers and electric atmosphere only comes alive after it gets dark.Route: You'll see the club's signboard as you go to Agonda from Palolem. As you take the dirt trail, an iron gate will welcome you into a steep descent towards the valley.
Chaudi is famous for its market, where you can buy different spices, vegetables, fruits, gifts, souvenirs and other necessary things. But many tourists visit the market to get acquainted with flavors and colors of South Goa.An Evening in Canacona:The evening was setting in and a nature lover that I am I headed towards the beach for a soothing sunset, but what I witnessed was way beyond words. Yes at a beach sunsets are always beautiful but when in Canacona it is Spectacular and what makes it so different is the fact that it transports you to another planet by just crossing the shallow waters of the Palolem beach. A fabulously designed Beach Shack is situated just as you reach the other end. Rocks and white sand is all you can see and as you climb these rocks to further towards the sea you will see some different species of sea creatures and corals in between the huge rocks. As you get to the tip you see a pristine sea which is ready to take in the sun within its wide spread arms and leave you with a dark night of twinkling stars.One has to be careful while planning to get to this point because, if there’s a high tide you can’t get here as the rocks are under water and once you are here you got to be careful about the rising levels of water as if the high tide starts there is no other way to get you back to the beach. So choose a right time to witness this magical place which is worth a visit.
