I have been living in Goa at my sister’s place for the last 3 months and I must Goa is so much more than the beaches and alcohol that Goa is famous for.
Goa has changed my way of living and thinking in these last three months in a way that I would have never expected. It is a place where everybody goes to work on the weekdays and enjoy their life at weekends. The people in Goa are so much comfortable in their skin and not caring what others say to them.
Goa as a place is a very chill and calm place where nobody is in a rush and everybody is up for a talk anywhere and everywhere. It is a place with trees and greeneries all around with monsoon season making them look more beautiful. The place looks so beautiful in the monsoon that nobody could imagine though beaches look scary in monsoon.
Every old Goa house has a touch of Portuguese culture and architecture which makes the house so beautiful and cute that you would just want to stay there.
Goan Authentic food is a delight here but if you are a North Indian like me and expect a good Kebab Parantha or Biryani then you will be disappointed as hell. If you are having a meal here, stick to its speciality and you will love it. Bakeries of Goa are the best, you enter the bakery and the smell of freshly baked bread and chocolate will just mesmerise you.
Goa is a place to relax and catch up on your life which you lost in the busy schedule of your metropolitan city. My only suggestion to the people who are coming to Goa is that just don’t sit on the beach and drink beer, please roam about in the city and enjoy its Vada Pav and its trees and especially the roads of Goa.
