It’s Better In Goa | Chapora

I’ve been in Goa for about 10 days now. For those of you who follow me on Instagram will be already aware that I have done a road-trip from Punjab to Goa and will be staying put in Goa for about 2 months since I have harped about it enough number of times. Needless to say, my stay has already been quite eventful.

My first day, walking on the road in my denim shorts, I got catcalled by a cheap Indian tourist and for 5 minutes it took me all the way back to Delhi. Fastest transportation ever I’d say. One day I decided to go bicycling and (as expected) lost my way. I do have gps on my cell but that didn’t help with the narrow streets. I emerged on a familiar road about an hour later, somehow quite far from my way back home. While cycling back I was chased by a dog ofcourse but not for too long (the fastest I have cycled ever) and struck up a conversation with a slightly mentally challenged man while walking up a rather steep slope with the cycle. He was trying to help me with the way but I couldn’t really understand what he was saying. Made it back home eventually. My ass hurt for the next 2 days straight because this was the first time I was sitting on a bicycle in about 2 years. Finding household help wasn’t quick either. We Indian’s like to drive a hard bargain (I know I do).

One thing I am quite surprised about is the road rage in Goa. In my head I thought things would be more peaceful here but that is certainly not true. So far I’ve run into a rash-driving local who was a huge asshole about it and another old foreigner who just had a pissed-off disposition. And this after I’ve been driving super politely and properly in Goa. It’s like I’m a different person in Delhi. Maybe I should just go back to my Delhi asshole-driving-aura and things will get better. Who knows.

It almost sounds like a heinous crime but on one occasion, I also cooked maggi at home. Apart from this it has mostly just been sea-food. I have been to some good beaches (like morjim, ashwem, benaulim) and some disappointing ones (like baga, chapora, etc). This is not my first time in Goa but these are the beaches that I have been to during my current stay.

I had heard decent things about Chapora. Unfortunately I visited on a weekend and it was rather crowded and that too with our Indian loafers. So we just explored the nearby area which is where we stumbled upon this colony and houses left in ruins with a lot of graffiti.

    Lovely pictures! πŸ™‚ And also, reeeeally like how you’ve written this post, was enjoyable to read. I hope your stay in Goa gets better generally, there’s so much more to do and see. I can’t wait to read some of the posts as and when you publish them. Though I’m from Goa, I know very little about the state, there are a couple of places I’ve fallen in love with over the past four years, I feel a more closer+deeper connection with Goa now more than I ever used to before. I’m just sad that I used to dislike it just a tad before when I was a teenager. Would have paid attention to a lot more, also it was probably different then when you go with your family every year… I hope that you get to meet Jane too (the photographer I told you about), she’s very cool. Chalo, have fun! :-*

      Thank you RO! Ya no biggie…I still really really like Goa πŸ™‚ I guess in our teens we pretty much don’t like the world as a whole…lol

  • you do have to drive quite agressive here! I think for me the reason I do, is there are so many scooters and tourists that drive really slow because they are lost, it’s hard to get my errands done fast so I have to pass and swerve around them! haha. shame you got catcalled though! that never happens to me here.

    The post transported me back to my Feb Goan trip! I had major vacation blues once I got to Delhi, and I thought a week long trip again later this year should set things right in my head and heart. Until I came across your post, that is. Now spending nothing less than a month makes sense. A month in Goa is on my bucketlist now.

    Safe travels.

    It looks nice but I think its kinda Short and Too Tight from bottom. A bit more longer version of it would have looked a lot more Feminine. Wha tis the material? Your eye wear are awesome.
