Fun in the sun in Goa




Ducking my head into the sea to get rid of three-week-old cold and bronchitis, digging into a Rs 1200-smoked kingfish at Aggie's shack at little Calangute beach, sipping glasses of port wine, bargaining with a charming Kannada woman named Sunita over the price of a swimsuit and a pair of white harem pants, tucking into a seafood platter at Britto's at Baga beach, spooning off the remnants of some delicious prawn balchao and then washing them down with sangria at SinQ, swaying to Bollywood music on the dance floor till 4 am (partially induced by tequila), 120-km bike rides through paddy fields and coconut groves from Calangute to Majorda and back, watching children getting their faces painted at hubby's school reunion event, doing the Dil Chahta Hai-style photoshoot at Vagator Fort, washing down some really spicy Goan sausages with a red wine spritzer at Mango Tree on the Vagator Beach Road and conversations with friends at the restaurant and rooms of Little Italy Hotel – this trip to Goa is indeed memorable.
