In b/w we went to FAT FISH restaurant a quality goan cuisine restaurant which highly recommend nevertheless for the tongues that are used to the spice of Rayalaseema goan cuisine is really bland.
We reached our hosts and we gave them a little jesus statue for the health of our host mrs.jennie whom we learnt from her husband, has been suffering from gastric cancer and already tired of the allopathy knowing that we are medicos her husband asked to show interest to treatment and give her better hope which I though I did with bit of giving assurance and positivity. By nature, I found that though sensitive she seemed to be a strong character.
I hope she does well and survive this all. We are really late to find a cab abd hosts are really not sure if we could catch our flight, which we eventually we did at the very last minute possible
Normal me, sitting in the front seat would have been really stressed out during that 1 and ½ hr. travel to airport because missing a flight is not something we could afford. But my mind was preoccupied about something about our host until I reached airport.
“One of my friends keep on reminding us how good it would be to have a own place in Goa by the beach renting a port of it to travelers, having an attached liquor stall to your place which seemed mandatory in Goa.”
I though well it would be really good life and I thought same about our hosts who are really modern, fun loving, easy going, and enjoying life, living the moment until I came to knew that she was suffering from cancer.
MAY BE GOD DOESN’T WANT SOMEONE TO BE HAPPY WITH EVERYTHING IN LIFE. He just likes the little game of balancing ‘joy and sorrow’ Then I thought boy don’t be that sensitive she will be fine, life goes on.
I reached airport somehow……………
But still this day I open Airbnb and search for our guest and see whether the host name is same or is it changed. Thankfully its still the same I have his number I never try to give a call what if I have to hear some bad news? And what if every time I think of my trip with friends I think of that bad news. Sometimes its better to leave things there itself.
That’s it for me what TRAVEL means it is not ‘ALL FUN’ thing as they show in movies.
It includes, fun frustration, laughter, exhaustion, sense of satisfaction, a little bit of disappointment, trying to find that peace of mind
Isn’t that all those same things that sums up ‘life’
That’s it what they say is indeed true….
‘To travel is to live’…………
