The Road Trip ! Mumbai To Goa

A magical roadtrip would include

Fantastic roads
Green ghats & hill stations
A slight drizzle
Overcast skies
Limited oncoming traffic
Fast car. Clear directions
Good music
Uncrowded & pristine beaches
Portugese architecture & history
Indian minds
Shack food
Great company

That is as magical as it could get. Especially so when its Goa by road !

Thats exactly what we had.

I have come back with about 800 snaps and a million memories. Perhaps more. As much as this was a holiday, it was also some time for intense reflection, juggling of thoughts, discovering of the self through konkan coastline, cuisine and people. We are back in Mumbai with perhaps a lorry load of each.

So much so, that there is realisation that much more needs to be done. Much more ! I am already having a difficulty of excluding the many pictures from being posted here ! But still thats the choice that i have to make ! So, you will find some snaps here and more as we go along !

Overall, it was a great trip.

And my new theory is Goa is great. Especially in the monsoons. So the off season is really the season of seasons !

Here are some snaps ! The details follow !

At Fort Aguada

Beside the Road

Approaching rain at Calangute Beach

Bright Red. Bright Yellow. All seem to be preferred exterior colours !

    Pria : Goa is filled with beaches. And each has a name and i am told, ‘a character’ to it. The only character i saw in all was a pristine loveliness !

    Hobo : yes. And i do know you went on a road trip there as well ! Am sure you have such memories too

    Avenger : Thank You ! Yes we had a great time. I am using a Canon S5. And no major lenses !

    GP : yes. I took care that i either clicked or drove. Not the two together. You know from whom i learnt that !

    Sundar : You bet ! The greens just come alive and stay for long in your mind too !
