What happens on a Goa Beach ?- Family Beach Activity Guide

What to do at Goa Beaches?  Adventure & Water Sports in Goa My first visit to Goa on a hot summer day was in double-breasted suit; a serpent-like twin tongued tie wrapped around my itchy neck and a laptop in tow. But once I visited the beach of the Taj Fort Aguada, where I was staying I vowed to rip off my tie, burn the suit and move to Goa. In due course, the tie was peeled off, the suits dusted, dry-cleaned, mothballed and hidden in closets that were locked and marked -” Never To Be Opened” The dream [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Laughter & other lessons learned from kids of Child Rescue Center Goa First came the collective laughter that rose above the rapturing waves crashing on the pristine Gonsua Beach, Majorda in Goa. Then came a few worried yet loving screams,” Wait, don’t go too close, don’t enter the water, let me come “ But the collective laughter had the blessings of the Universe that made the pure laughter attract everybody around. It sure got my attention as I ran towards the source of the collective laughter to contribute to the chorus. If there is anything better than laughing alone  then it is to join [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Goa Travel Blog - A Family Trip to Goa

  An Indian Family trip to Goa: What Indian Families can do in Goa When I was a kid a family vacation meant going to my grandparent’s homes every year during summer vacations as we lived in different cities.
