Goin’ to Goa!


Dear reader(s), I’m off on a vacation. Yes, a vacation within a vacation. Yes, another one – for about two weeks. And no, not to Hawaii (in case any of you were misled by the greeting). Le sigh. Well, close enough – I’m off to the Indian equivalent of Hawaii. Goa, baby! Whoopsie-doooda! πŸ˜€

(I just realized the title comes before the post (d’oh!). And that it gives it all away. Arg.)

Before I get to sunny Goa (rainy Goa, more like. *sigh*) though, I’ll be taking a detour through 3 less scenic, but equally interesting cities. So, in a matter of two weeks, I shall be travelling through four different states all over India – isn’t that some quality time-management?

I’m most excited about Goa. There’s a really sad story behind it – my parents, who have been in Mumbai for almost a year now, and stayed here for 5 whole years when I was younger, have never been there. Not once. I myself have been to Goa just once, that too on a school trip. From freakin’ Coimbatore. Sheesh. Almost 6 years in Mumbai, and we’ve never been to Goa as a family till now. That’s why I’m so excited to be going there now – it’s going to be wonderful taking that family vacation together. I’m really gonna miss my brother though; he would’ve really enjoyed the trip and would’ve made the family complete. Well, if it’s any comfort, I’ll be thinking of you all the time, bro! πŸ™‚

All I’m hoping now, is that Goa lives up to the expectations. I’m expecting…

What?? A girl can dream, right?

Ah, it’s ok. I don’t care how it turns out to be. I’m going with my family, and as I said before, that’s all that matters. So goodbye, dear friends, and await my return! I shall bring tales of my travels to share with you! And we shall all gather together around the campfire and eat and drink and be merry!

Ahem. I’m going off on a tangent. I’ll let myself out now. πŸ˜›

See you all in a couple of weeks! πŸ™‚

    #World Girl,Aww, it’s ok. A little more time and you’ll be in college! That’s a whole new (and fun) experience! :)And as for the tanning, funnily enough, I don’t tan a lot. Who knows, maybe this time I will. :DP.S: I’m ignoring the ‘bikini chant’. ;)#Pri,I think about our excursion all the time! It was the most fun outing with friends I’ve had so far! (Oh, remember the Tamil rap song Meera taught us on the train?! Heh!)And don’t you dare join this insane gang about that photo…I’m warning you! :P#MG and Soleil,I’m still ignoring the both of you! La la la la la la la la! πŸ˜›
