Goa – How to Have a Fun-Filled Romantic Holiday on the Beach

A couple of years ago we were in Goa. That was the first time when I was so close to the ocean. I got to spend a lot of time with the beautiful and alluring Arabian Sea, gazing at it sitting on the shore.

I enjoyed each and every moment of my time spent there. It’s such a beautiful and romantic place, and I think every couple should visit the sea city once in a lifetime.

There’s something so peculiar about the rustic towns and villages of the state. The Konkani culture, the flavor bursting coastal cuisine, tourists flooded bright and charming streets, roadside restaurants serving all kinds of mouthwatering delicacies, both Indian and continental are the main Goa tourist attractions that shouldn’t be missed, not if you’re living in or visiting India.

So, guys if you love traveling and exploring the new culture, food, and lifestyle, I bet you won’t regret. In fact, you would be amazed seeing people drunk with the sheer spirit of fun and loads and loads of it. It’s in the air.

Goa – Lover’s Paradise, the Best Holiday Destination

Though the union territory is a hub spot of all sorts of fun activities and a romantic holiday destination for tourists from across the world, if you’re visiting the place for the first time, you need to do your homework and check for hotels in Goa. There is quite a lot of information available on the Internet. You can browse through any Goa travel guide.  You can even google – Goa tourist places or Goa trip package or something like Goa sightseeing or Goa tourism hotels for more information about lodging and boarding.

It’s better you plan your holidays in advance and keep things easy. It’s good if you make a hotel reservation in advance if you’re planning a trip during the peak season, i.e., somewhere from November to January. There are many affordable and luxurious resorts in Goa. You can check their packages and deals and any complimentary offers like breakfast in bed or ferry tour before making any reservations.

Goa hotelsGoa tourism industry has seen a tremendous boom in the recent years because the city serves as an affordable yet luxurious holiday destination for backpackers, honeymoon couples, families, and folks looking for some water sports.

The climate of the sea city is a year-round temperate climate, and days get really hot during summer months of April and May, so better you plan accordingly and pack your baggage depending on the season.

Since the state is known for its picturesque white sand beaches, the best thing to do once you’re in the coastal city is to spend as much time as you can near the ocean, soaking in the sun.

In my opinion, the best month to visit the romantic hot spot is December when there’s a little chill in the sea breeze. The two benefits of visiting the city in December is that you can leisurely spend plenty of time on the beach without getting sunburned plus you can be a part of the festive activities of Christmas and New Year that bustle every year during the months of December and January.

I visited the tiny town of Varca during the month of December, just after Christmas. We celebrated New Year there. Though it’s a different thing that instead of partying hard all night, we preferred to go for a candlelit dinner.

A few memories of my days spent in the tiny coastal state of India are still fresh in my mind, especially those I spent along the coast. And, now since I’ve started writing a blog, there wouldn’t be any better place to share those cherished reminiscences with my friends. So, here goes the poem that really makes me nostalgic about my visit to lover’s paradise.

The sun is going down. The sea is shimmering brown

If there’s any light – Your eyes shine so bright.

The depth of the ocean is great. The waves try to communicate.

If there’s any sound – Your heartbeat profound.

I hear it amidst the murmuring, collapsing waves

The dancing waves, the singing waves.

I hear it amidst the chirps of the birds and insects

The chattering sparrows and the serenading crickets

Soon, The wind blows hard and the sky turns red

But, I stand still on the wet sand bed

The trees kiss each other. The moonlight spreads its milky glow

Oh! dear wind please blow slow

For I want to freeze the moments in my eyes as the sea’s song is sung,

A salty taste lingers on my tongue as my day at the sea is done

But, with you baby – I’m still undone.

Who are the Masai?

The sun was at its full gleam. The parched desert beds were hot enough to burn feet. A barefoot woman emerged out of a small dome shaped house, made up of cow dung, in the midst of the desert. Wearing a red wrap and countless beaded necklaces, she giggled with other ladies standing outside the house under the canopy of hot blazing sun challenging the scorching heat and the emptiness of the lunar landscape of east Africa. Fetching their heads with empty water cans with the help of ropes, they made their way to the pit dug in a nearby dried up riverbed.

The women belong to the indigenous mysterious tribe of Africa, the Maasai. Living along the borders of Kenya and Tanzania, the Maasai tribe of east Africa is known for its rich cultural heritage and its semi-nomadic pastoral lifestyle. Defying the modern-age technological advancements and western culture influences, the tribe still follows its age-old tradition of living. Cattle are the utmost worth for the tribe. It is for the sake of their animals that they keep on wandering across the rugged terrains of deserts in search of water and fodder.

The entire continent of Africa has been dealing with severe water scarcity problems due to impending droughts. The reasons are many, but deforestation could be the major cause of prevailing drought and the infamous famine of African horn. The conditions are worse in remote areas and villages and the most affected are the pastoral tribes of Africa inhabiting the arid and semiarid regions of the country where water is a wealth and the cattle are god. Due to poor rainfall, prevailing scarcity of water, government negligence, and administrative loopholes, the indigenous tribes of Africa are losing their animals.

Dependent on their livestock for daily meal in the form of meat, milk, and blood, they are compelled to combine various other forms of livelihood along with their pastoral activities to survive on the toughest terrains of earth in extreme climatic conditions.

The effects of ongoing deforestation and illegal poaching practices combined with marginalization by the local administration may be the leading cause of extinction of the tribe’s ancient culture and tradition in the near future. But for now, they are keeping their heads high challenging the adverse circumstances and the bleakness of the environment. Emerging as true warrior tribes of Africa, they are committed to keep their stone-age traditions intact despite all odds of life.
