Goa Honeymoon-IInd part

After collecting some beautiful moments of the day at Miramar beach, we came back to the resort in the night. A perfect blend of Goan decor and advanced amenities of the hotel offloaded my tiredness of the day. Manicured gardens, unmatched natural views, excellent room services and above all the warm company of John, I was feeling spoilt during the dinner. After finishing the lip-smacking food at the resort itself, we moved towards our room and took some rest.

To enjoy each other’s company, we spent a lazy morning. After having the lunch in resort, we moved towards the local markets of the state. Then it was time to explore the real Goa. We tried to uncover every nook and corner of the nearby area, which was an amazing experience.

As we were there in the month of December, we could witness the preparations of the Carnival celebrations and before that X- Mas. The state was getting ready to paint the town red. Each and every Goan was excited to make it the best time. These two major festivals of the state have made Goa really popular. Not only Goans, but also tourists from other countries were there to ensure their presence in these most happening festivals.

In the evening, we reached resort. As our plan was to experience the electrifying night life of the state, we collected some information from the resort. After taking some rest, we decided to hit the party, which was organized at the beach. We booked a vehicle from the hotel itself and left for the party.

After reaching there, I could understand why Goan parties are that much popular. Dance, music, fun and no one to stop, what can be more electrifying than that! It was the experience that cannot be expressed in words.

The tour was about to over, till date I wish that we could have extended it to experience at least X-Mas celebrations. Unfortunately, all the hotels and resorts of the state were pre-booked by tourists during that time. So, we packed our bags and checked out on the decided date. We followed the same route to go back.

The tour was short but amazing. I and John will soon plan another tour to Goa but this time we will ensure to hit the state during its celebration time.

Even after reaching Mumbai, we could not forget the spell of Goa. The whole experience of Goa was unforgettable for us that really made our honeymoon a celebration. Especially, the breeze coming from the sea whispering romantic melodies in the ears was just creating a perfect romantic ambiance. The wonderful attractions of this destination just insisted us to stay there for a long time. Though we didn’t feel like coming back yet we had to.

The next day in Mumbai started with one hour boat ride with my spouse. This romantic ride took us to the lush green Elephanta Island, where we saw the beautiful Elephanta Caves. These intricately carved caves date back to 8th century. The whole experience was amazing and the beautiful locations blessed with sheer natural beauty added charm to it.

To continue this wonderful experience, I persuaded my spouse to go on Bollywood tour. This full day tour offered us to opportunity to visit a film studio where we could see live shooting. To witness the glimpse of bollywood stars was like a dream come true for me.

The other popular attraction worth to mention is Kanheri Caves in Mumbai. They are a group of rock-cut monuments, located north of Borivali. The name, ‘Kanheri’, is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Krishnagiri’ that means ‘black in colour’. These caves were also carved out of a giant piece of basaltic rock.

It is a must visit destination for short excursions. These popular caves date back to 2nd -9th centuries and are known to be carved out by Buddhist monks. They are one of the biggest Buddhist monastic establishments on the Konkan coast.

The other attractions, which became a part of our exploration during the tour were Gateway of India, Marine Drive, the Towers of Silence and the Dhobi Ghat. We also paid a short visit to Mani Bhawan, a small museum dedicated to the life of Mahatma Gandhi. In the late evening, we were transferred to the International airport from where we took a flight back to home.

At the end of our honeymoon tour, we were happy to select Goa as our honeymoon destination. A trip to Goa really gave a magic start to our new life with its never-ending charm and captivating natural beauty.

Goa is the destination that became very special for me as I opted the place for celebrating my honeymoon. After browsing a lot on Internet, we finally selected a renowned tour operator to plan our honeymoon trip as the Goa honeymoon package offered by them was well-planned and suited our preference.

We left from Delhi and reached Goa by flight. As I have already heard a lot about this beautiful place and on being reached there, I could see why it is called a perfect honeymoon destination. The exotic aura of beaches and the serene natural ambiance seem magical. We enjoyed our dinner and stayed overnight at hotel.

Our entire day was dedicated to full day sightseeing of Goa. We visited Old Goa and some famous Cathedrals and Churches there. These include Se-Cathedral, St. Catherine’s Church, Church of St. Francis Xavier and Arch of Vice Roy of Goa.

Then, we headed for Miramar beach, which is the only beach near any city. It offers a wonderful view of the river Mandovi flowing into the sea. We decided to discover the scattered beauty of nature with river cruise. It is structured at the long Mandovi River. The cruise was fun-filled and exciting that made me nervous initially but later on I enjoyed it. During the river cruise, we could also admire the astonishing sunrise and sunset.

We also got an opportunity to visit Dona Paula, a small fishing village, which was located at the tip of Panji. After coming back, we stayed overnight at hotel.

Next day, we simply enjoyed at leisure and spent time with each other. We too enjoyed the amenities of the resort. That was a complete relaxing day for us and we made the most of it by enjoying each other’s company in the beautiful resort.

The moments that we spend on Goa Beaches were really magical for us. We visited Condolim Beach, Baga Beach, Arambol Beach, Vagator Beach, Benaulim Beach, Palolem Beach, Agonda Beach, Mobor Beach and Cavelossim Beach. Basking in the sun, taking pleasure in the fun-filled water sports like parasailing, waterskiing & river rafting and enjoying the natural beauty with your partner is truly a blessing.

Next day, after spending the morning at leisure, we were transferred to airport for flight to Mumbai. On being arrived at Mumbai, we met their representative and afterwards, checked in into the hotel for staying overnight there.
