First of all I want to apologize for being absent on your blogs’ comment sections and not replying to your comments on mine. I have been really busy in studying and thesis work and will remain so for some more time. But I had to write a blog post to keep this blog alive, right? 🙂 Also you must know when I come back I will read each and every unread post and comment 🙂 So please bear with me till then.
As I mentioned in my last post, D and I had gone to Kolkata in December 2010. During our stay there, we went on two trips – a one day trip in Kolkata only and a 3 day trip to Digha beach which is the most popular weekend destination for Calcuttans.
Continued from first part here…
# 6th Nov Day 3 :- Next day, we hired a car. Cars are easily available for hire. One can also rent a car and drive oneself. It costs 1400 rs for South Goa trip. South Goa trip is for one day and North Goa trip takes another day. We didn’t have time to visit North Goa this time.
First of all we went to Shantadurga temple at Ponda.
So I spent my Diwali vacation in Goa this year. 🙂 It was my first trip to Goa and the people to go on the trip were my parents, D and I.
# 4th Nov 2010 day 1 :- Arrived at Madgaon early morning from Pune. The feeling of being in Goa starts from Madgaon station itself because of all the cartoon drawings of Mario Miranda on the walls of Madgoan station 🙂 Colva beach is only 10 kms from Madgaon so it is no use staying at Madgaon. So we hired a pre paid taxi to Colva beach. Checked in to a good family resort just 100 m away from beach. Nice place but bad service and rude staff. 😦
One of the departments at college had organised a rangoli competition. Students had made such wonderful rangolis. Ayodhya issue seemed to rule as the topic of the day.

29th May :- We went to Alibaug in late morning as planned. Thankfully our hotel was near an auto stand so we didn’t have to walk much in the hot sun. Alibaug is quite well-developed commercially. But the only shopping we did there was to buy “hapoos” mangoes at cheaper price and of better quality than Pune. 😀 😀 We also had tender coconut water there but it was tasteless. The best tender coconut water is available at Konark, Orissa. 🙂

HEIGHTS OF HYPOCRISY!!!

28th May:- To avoid getting sick on the boat ride to Mandwa port, I had not eaten anything at CST. I had thought that would be enough and had not taken medicine for motion sickness.
The boat ride was a lesson for me. I and few other passengers (guys and girls) got seasick. D, however, was perfectly fine and enjoyed the boat ride.
I was totally exhausted by the time we reached Mandwa. After a bit of hotel searching, we decided to stay at Nandanvan holiday home at Kihim Beach.
During my summer vacation stay at Pune this year, D and I had gone on a short trip to Kihim and Alibaug during weekend. So before I get too late in posting my account of the trip like Vimmuuu [ 😛 ] and I forget the details for the travelogue, here is the first part of the three post series.
As I had told in my status report, I was away on my one month-long summer vacation. But the sad part was that I did not get Internet connection due to some problem with Windows 7 and Tata Photon. 😥
3 weeks with Internet access limited only to GPRS on mobile was quite…detoxifying!! On the downside I got addicted to Star World and Fox Crime
