Sun & Sand in Goa

On Boxing Day we left for Goa, the Indian region known for its long stretch of sandy coastline. We spent two weeks there living beachside and enjoying the surf. We began in North Goa where we lived in a bamboo hut steps from the beach and were surrounded by an international crowd of hippies and fellow travelers. The late night revelry, lively music and laid-back atmosphere was a welcome respite after weeks of busily seeing the sights of India. After getting our fill of hippie life, we headed South to check out the Portugese influenced city of Panjim and Old Goa, the historic center a few kilometers to the east of Panjim. Compared to the rest of India, Goa has a large Christian population and we were able to visit some beautiful churches and cathedrals, including the largest cathedral in Asia. We headed further south to get some more beach time in at the beautiful and serene beaches of Southern Goa. The quiet and calm location was a great place to unwind in the sun with a book and a cold drink. And believe it or not, after two weeks, even Cat began to get a little tan.
