After several months of intense focus at work, I finally managed to get a few days off last week. Aanish and Ayaana had their spring break and this was an ideal time for a short vacation. The kids have never been to Goa and it's been over a decade for Mona and me since the last time we were there. So Goa it was!
Goa was everything that we remembered and much more. The place has become a real world class tourist destination. And judging by the number of foreign tourists, it is clearly extremely popular among Europeans and Asians.
We were staying at the Taj Holiday Village and had a relaxing and fun time. We went on a boat ride to see dolphins off the coast, watched a cooking demonstration by one of the chefs, went jet skiing, swam, ate and lazed around in our villa. Weather was exceptionally good - not too hot but just right. Who could ask for anything more? Ayaana declared that this was one of her best vacations ... so the next one is going to be tough to beat.
