I wasn't sure about how I would take to Goa. For sure I was up for a bit of in-your-face tourism with all the cocktails, beach loungers and eating places geared to the international beach bum. I wasn't too keen on the by product of all that, lots and lots of other people looking for the same thing but as it turned out I struck lucky. A guesthouse backing onto a busy beach at a part of the beach that wasn't too busy so if I angled my book right the place looked almost deserted.
I had a hammock at my beck and call
Visitors were few and very cute
Beach vendors were photogenic and not not too pushy
with just the right amount of creative framing the beach looked lovely
I've just realised, I didn't have one cocktail! Just as well I'm going back to explore another part of Goa in a week.
