Everything in Goa has a certain casualness about it, the people, the markets and even the buildings and architecture; all of them seem to merge into a drunken medley of ease, calm and comfort.
Be it the roads running between the palm trees that seems to meet the ocean at the horizon or the cool sands at its innumerable shores, everything offers a sense of serenity and harmony.
The somber quiet of centuries old churches, the maddening hubbub of the clubs, the intoxicating aromas of the pubs or the diners offering delectable cuisines from across the world, Goa offers an assortment of delights to all irrespective of their age, gender or idiosyncrasies.
It is a delight to be here, to experience happiness, fulfillment & contentment. A place to wear off your worries, a place to find joy, a place to find peace…
