Waiting for the start of the season

Time is too slow for those who wait.

Some of my favorite places in Goa are shut down for dull season during the rains.

    • the relaxed setup at Morjim beach in the north with Rajasthani tents
    • the peaceful, isolated location at Columb which has an almost private cove

  • the exotic setup at Cavelossim with drinks served on a dock next to river, water buffalos padding through (really).
  • The cutoff place (no mobile reception, limited service, and you are sandwiched between a cliff and a beach and a lagoon on the side!) at Cola beach
  • Those amazing wooden cottages at Palolem

The list is long and its the same wait every year, when I crave for those amazing moments I spent few months back but cannot experience them till start of November. Its a tough wait but I wonder if without the wait these places would be as exciting? A few days more and I will be back in paradise for most of my weekend getaways.

This snap was clicked at Mandrem beach at a place called Dunes. Good location for a good evening with friends. Highly recommended.
