There are many not so good sides to Goa but they are well documented. I have just returned from a much shorter holiday than originally booked and neither of us was really in a holiday mood but we had decided to go ahead anyway. Goa was actually just what we needed. It gave time for some much needed reflection and helped to take some of the stress away.
I love sitting on the beach just watching the world go by. The Indian holidaymakers go into the water with all their clothes on and the joy of some folks who obviously are not used to the sea is great to watch. ( Thankfully the lifeguards are doing a great job of also watching and making sure the enthusiasm does not lead to tragedy.
I love watching cows going where ever they feel like. We have even seen a cow deciding it wanted to share the shade of this Russian couple who were blissfully unaware for a minute or two as they both had their eyes shut. When the woman opened her eyes the cows head was right over hers. Lets just say she got a bit of a shock!
I love watching Indian children happy and smiling and playing with their toy which often is a plastic drink bottle. That bottle can be a car, a train, a bucket. a water gun- the list is endless
My husband likes watching the Russian women for some reason
I love the beach dogs- they may growl if another shack dog encroaches on their patch but they usually over for a pet and to lie in the shade.
I love the fact I can go out every evening, eat whatever I want from the menu, have too much to drink even if you have the best of intentions and still have a lot of change from £30 for a total day's spend for both of you.
Most of all I love meeting up with friends- many of whom became friends through the HT meets of the past run by the longstayers who did a great job of welcoming newcomers.
I love the fact that I am so laid back on my Goa holidays that I never go anywhere! This is not like me on other holidays. It tends to put you in a trance( and no I don't mean that type of trance )
There are many more things I love but those are just a few
