Holiday In GOA - Part I

Hiya fellas,
Had a lovely Wednesday n was jumping with joy when I got back to my abode in Goa. Due to net connectivity getting in touch with you all is a little difficult but will try n keep you all posted. coming to the reason of my excitement besides the lovely beaches, food n the fact that am on a holiday was this...:)

Two aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesome bags gifted by my husband, A white n gold Miu Miu bag and.....

A reddish brown Michel Kors handbag.....ahhhhhhhhh OMG OMG OMG is all that I kept saying all the way back ...:) seriously cant stop smiling :):):):):):):):):):)....

Now that I've finally got my nerves in check here are the few other things I got yesterday from Anjuna market, it's also called as wednesday market since it's open only on wednesdays. It's got all typical goan signature stuff, colourful clothing, beads, bracelets, cloth bags or jholas etc. This is what I picked up from there...
A two colour blue neckpiece..

A cute silver bracelet...

And a colourful beaded bracelet, loved this :)

Anjuna Market/ Wednesday Market
  1. This market is open on Wednesdays till 6pm, so make sure you go early.
  2. Four wheelers have to be parked outside, so find a good safe spot for your vehicle on either side of the road.
  3. The prices are quoted for foreign tourists and so will sound totally absurd, bargain hard, like for example the above all three, neck-piece n bracelets have cost me less than Rs.300/- 
  4. Take care of your belongings.
  5. You can enjoy the Anjuna beach view after your shopping, due to corals it's a beautiful place for good clicks.
Off for more site seeing, take care n have a gr8 day.

GOA Travel Checklist

Hello Folks,
Goa is a has a hot n humid climate so the two most important problems tourists face are sunburn and dehydration. Generally the tourist season starts from mid of October, after rains. Below is a checklist of few things that one must carry on a Goa trip.

  1. Sunscreen Lotion with 60+ spf. It should be waterproof and sweatproof coz generally due to heavy perspiration  when we wipe our skin the screen too tends to come off leaving the skin vunerable to the sunrays.
  2. A bottle of water n if possible dissolve a packet of Electral in it, it will help to balance the loss of salt and keep you hydrated.
  3. A hydrating facial spray that you can spray when skin feels dry or after extreme exposure to sun.
  4. A lip balm stick, to protect the lips from flaking due to exposure to heat.
  5. Peanuts or any nuts for hunger pangs while site seeing.
  6. Loose cotton clothing, people generally prefer to wear short clothes and spaghetti  tops but this in turn exposes your skin to the harsh sunrays, a days for fun can result into a severely tanned skin, if you choose to wear such clothing make sure to apply loades of sunscreen liberally to your exposed skin.
  7. A hat or cap is very essential to protect your head to avoid sunstroke, headache or maigrain.
  8. A pair of dark sunglasses.
  9. Goa Street Map, this will show you the details of various markets, temples, churches, museums, supermarkets and hotels.
  10. Do a pre booking for your stay in hotels to avoid disappointment, inconvenience  and also avail the best rates and discounts during the peak season.

Plan your trip so you can make the most outta it, enjoy yourself and have a blast :D

Lotsa Love
Priya :)
