Ever made this pact with your college buddies – Yaar, har saal milenge college ke baad! (We shall meet every year after graduating!)

But where! Well, for us, that location is Goa. And we have been there several times. But no number of visits can satiate our love for Goa.

So, this time, just the two us, husband & I, decided to fulfil our Goa calling, sans friends. And we first decided to bite a slice of the less explored South Goa.

And, take my word for it, it is BEAAAUUUTIFULL! It is everything that North Goa isn’t! It is not crowded, for one. Thus, it has clean beaches. It has narrow roads but less vehicles. It is calmer, maybe lonely sometimes.

We did not want to go overboard with our stay but when you’ll research, you’ll realise that South Goa expects you to shell some bucks to make you aware of its awesomeness.

Almost all the good resorts have their own beach and that is pretty cool in itself!

We chose to stay at Caravela beach resort, on the Varca beach in South Goa. I am a beach baby and for me the white sands and the blue sparkling waves till where your eyes can see, is a dream come true!

The entire expanse of the resort adjacent to the beach is a golf course with its immaculately trimmed grass and the ocean roaring in the backdrop!

They claim to have one of the Goa’s largest swimming pool. But, who cares! It has an island bar. That bought me on the first go. What better than a wine sipping lazy evening in the pool!

Apart from this, there is an outdoor jacuzzi, a spa centre, a gymnasium, yoga sessions, activities everyday for every age group.

There are some beach activities like Parasailing in the evenings as well.

From here, you can access beaches like Colva, Palolem, betalbatim, etc.

We spent one evening at Cavelossim beach and also enjoyed some boho shopping in the shops surrounding it.

We found a restaurant called the ‘Mike’s place’ that served some finger-licking seafood and kept the mood sublime with some great live music.

I fell in love with this new part of Goa which is now gaining popularity in the recent times. Every part has its own charm and so does this!

I am Dr. Nikita Mathur. A dentist by profession, on a lookout for my passion. Past years have made me realise my love for travel and books. As an extension of the avid reader in me, I am a passionate writer too. Hence, here we are talking about everything.

I am a new mother and exploring the grounds of modern parenting is my new fad. And, I am pretty excited to show the world to this boy of mine.

Wanderlust struck me (hard) around a decade back and I have only grown and evolved as a traveller ever since. Much has changed over the years. New places, new phases of life, new challenges! It is all worth it when I see what a minuscule part I am, in this wonderful wide world!

Probably, for me, one world is not enough! Maybe that is the reason I always have a parallel universe woven around me in the form of books. The love that started with the fictional world of Enid Blyton, has very graciously embraced a variety of genres of reading. Still, the heart-pounding thrillers remain my absolute favourite!

But well,

“Life happens when you are busy making other plans”

So here I am , documenting my life, one blabber at a time!
