Goan Mad - Travels in Goa Part 1



I'd be a pretty shoddy blogger without the obligatory outfit post in the snow so here you go, fresh off an eleven hour flight from India determined to show off the sun tan, frostbite be damned. Who says I don't suffer for my art? 

So where have I been for the last three weeks? Let's start with the first 7 days. 


We landed in Goa on 2nd January at just after midnight, hailed an auto rickshaw and headed off to Benaulim, a predominantly Christian fishing and rice producing village in the south of the state. 



Palmira's business card was stashed in our travel wallet so we rung ahead and reserved a room before we boarded the plane. We'd inspected the rooms on a previous visit and knew they were clean and quiet. After a particularly unpleasant night in a cockroach-infected bed many years ago we now never book accommodation without viewing it first.


The rate was just shy of £5 a night and a short walk to the beach and a fine walk it was, too.


The beach? A wide stretch of powdery white sand extending for 25 kilometres, lapped by the warm Arabian Sea, fringed by palm trees and dotted with coco-thatched beach shacks and traditional fishing boats.


Unlike some of Goa's beaches there's no hassle from hawkers and beggars, the only disruption being an occasional fisherman needing help with dragging his boat back in to shore.....


a meandering cow or three....


...and the odd sea snake accidentally brought in with the day's catch.


The sunsets are astounding, 


Every night after a quick shower we'd head back to one of the handful of beach shacks to quaff chilled Kingfisher, feast on amazing veggie curries,


and share any leftovers with the beach dogs.


Don't fret, animal lovers, this litter have already found new homes and their mum's been neutered by a local animal rescue charity.


South Goan night life is chilled and fabulous with no need for shoes, make-up or fancy clothes. There's party on somewhere every night with dancers, fireworks and live music, just look out for the fliers posted on the palm trees around the village.


And even better? A night out for the two of us with a beer or three, fabulously fresh & spicy vegetarian food and a couple of vodka and tonics for the road costs less than £10.

1970s bikini (the fabularse Helga), Vintage sheepskin coat (£9.99, Banardos), 1970s high-heeled wellies (jumble sale)

Hope your 2013's has got off to an equally fabulous start.

See you soon for Part 2 of our travel tales (if you can stand the excitement).

PS I've committed the heinous blogger's sin of posting before catching up on commenting. When I checked Bloglovin' this morning I'd over 1000 blog posts unread. I'll be over soon as no doubt the jet lag will have me up at some ungodly hour in the morning.

Those puppies were adorable. Looking forward to part 2.

pastcaring said...

Hey, you're home safe and looking excellent! Good on you for flashing your fab bikini and your bronzed and beautiful body at us, you saucy minx! Bit is a shock to your system, coming back from Goa to this snow... But glad to see you are still smiling while freezing your assets off!
Your photos of India always look so gorgeous - you and Jon have a great approach to it all, very chilled and relaxed, no hectic schedule. Look at the beach, look at the sea and the critters and the beer and the sunset! And look at your bikini -when you said you like a string bikini, I didn't realise you meant it was completely made of string - you look amazing!
Looking forward to seeing the rest of your pics, to a proper catch up with you, and having you back in the blogging world again. Welcome home, darling! xxxxx

Trees said...

joyatri said...

While I certainly like seeing you in nothing but a bikini and boots, I'm especially pleased at all the animal pics. Thanks for letting us know that the puppies are cared for and the mum sorted out. So glad you had a relaxed holiday. I can see from the photos that it was definitely a beer-and-feet-up type of holiday. I hope all is safe and sound back at home. Missed you tons!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

flasher alert!! You look fantastic in that teeny bikini!! Goa just looks wonderful. And so cheap too. If the food was more Crohns friendly then I'd take Mike with my PPI refund. It all looks wonderful. I'd love to be joined on the beach by the cows, even if they did try to eat my book! Those puppies are just too sweet and I'm pleased there's a local animal shelter to take care of them! You've got a fabulous tan, you look bloody gorgeous! xxxxx

Kezzie said...

So nice to have you back! You look fabulous and the trip photos look envious-evokingly wonderful!
Must say, really envying you that sheepskin coat too!!!x

Alex said...

Yay, you're back!! Looks like a fabulous trip - you certainly know how to holiday!!

I'm still a bit gobsmacked at the bikini pics. I nearly froze to death taking outfit pics without a coat on the other day so I bow down to your ability to pose in a bikini in this weather! Looking stunning as always though and so deliciously tanned.

Panty Buns said...

You look amazing in your lovely bikini with a fresh suntan. You've kept yourself in wonderful shape. The snowy setting enhances the photo immensely. The photos from your travels are fascinating and beautiful. The veggie curries sound yummy. What cute puppies! Love that bikini by Helga.

Lisa G said...

You've returned!! And you have a gorgeous tan, how unfair :)

Love the photos so far, sea snakes, Holy cows and beach dogs are all cute! Goa looks amazing, hopefully I'll go one day.

I've just discovered your wonderful blog and this post is an example of exactly why I love it so much. For a start, you look incredible! What on earth is your secret?

What an amazing way to start the new year, I'm very jealous! And I can't help but admire your arm candy in that picture of you on the beach - the ring is beautiful.

Glad to hear that Goa is still a great place to go -- it's been a hippie destination for eons

Frocktasia said...

Check out that bronzed goddess…YOWZA!
Welcome back, I bet you wish you could have stayed for another three weeks or until spring.
We spent three weeks in Thailand/Malaysia over Xmas and it was bloody marvellous, didn’t quite manage to get a tan like yours though ;)
I usually don’t mind creepy crawlies; I spent a month living in a cockroach-riddled hostel on Costa Brava when I was nineteen so I got used to them. Don’t get me wrong I’d rather not share a bed with them however I’m more fretful about bedbugs cause those buggers are worse than mosquitoes & fleas put together; I’m itching just thinking about them.
The puppies are adorable & I’m glad to hear that they’ve all found homes. We paid two visits to a wonderful animal welfare shelter whilst on Ko Lanta which was a real eye-opener.
So glad to have you back and I’m looking forward to the next instalment.
Thanks for the Xmas card by the way ;)
Lot’s of love,
Jennie

Your pictures in the snow remind me of a wild 60's movie where the girl looks all proper walking down the street and then gives us a flash and shows us what a party gal she really is under her coat.;) Que, the Binney Hill music.;) Glad your keeping up the spirit of a party somewhere every night, sounds like heaven to me!
And, I agree with Helga, your sunset pic is SPECTACULAR!:)
