Namaste! We arrived back home on Christmas night and the last few days has been a whirlwind of visiting friends and catching up on gossip. We've been battling jet lag (waking at 4am...aargh!) by having a post-holiday blitz on clutter and a much needed spring clean ready for the New Year's Eve bash we drunkenly offered to host when we were out on Boxing Day.
The water pipe in the bathroom decided to explode yesterday which meant a mercy dash to B&Q for spares. Looks like we'll be re-decorating in the next few weeks.
Goa was as wonderful, as always. Three weeks with no internet, no shopping, wearing no shoes, having no news....perfection. What did we do other than lie on the sand catching a few rays?
Admired the view from our room.
Got blessed by the priest.
Hung out with the beautiful people.
Attended our friends' baby's christening. Welcome to the world, Presley Fernandes.
Hitched a lift in a local fisherman's boat for some early morning dolphin spotting.
Watched the sunset.
It's tradition for us that on the last night in Goa we climb up the cliff to the tiny Shiva shrine on the border of the jungle, share a kiss and a small bottle of rum and watch the sun set over the Arabian Sea one last time.
I was back on-line on Boxing Day looking for a return trip in March, I've found a couple of potential flights but haven't booked just yet.

Hope you've all had a wonderfully festive time, I'm gradually catching up with all I've missed in Blogland, I think I've read all the blogs I follow but haven't got my brain in gear for commenting just yet. Thanks for sticking around.
