Goa is well known for beaches, sea food, and tourists. And that is what most of the people might have experienced who visited Goa during the December – March season. But there is more to explore in Goa, and monsoon was the time that we selected. We were not disappointed, but reaching the place was a problem. There were heavy rains throughout the coastal area during the time, and all the rivers were overflowing. Roads were blocked in many places, and train services stopped midway. Due to this, a few of us could reach the place only by Saturday evening.
The climate was a bit better by the time we reached there; it was cloudy, raining once in a while, or just drizzling otherwise. The entire Goa was green, with its lush paddy fields that stretch out far into horizon, and rows of coconut palms. It has more similarities to Kerala.
Our stay was arranged at Kenilworth Resorts. It is a beautiful place, with all facilities in abundance. They have a private beach at their backyard, and their swimming pool is the biggest in this part of the country. You can visit them online at The Kenilworth.
The get together was awesome, and it was worth a wait. This is our first meeting in the year 2009, and everybody was looking forward to it with great anticipation. We were not disappointed by the place, the stay, the food, or the climate. The wait for the next one starts now…
