We had a wonderful vacation in Goa last week where we also celebrated our daughter’s first birthday. It was just what we needed really. A couple of laid back days free from the stress of everyday life.
Goa being as welcoming as it is made sure that our time off was truly worth it. While there we stayed at Vivanta by Taj – Holiday Village which was just the kind of place I love staying at during holidays. Quiet, peaceful, green, acres and acres of greens in fact, with the deep blue azure ahead. We loved every moment of our three days there. Honestly, I cannot wait to go back again.
Sometimes all you need is to stop, listen and be with the ones you love. And that was all we did. S and I found so much time to talk while M played around us. We held her hands and made her walk. Strangers stopped to speak to us because of M. With good food and some amazingly relaxing conversations, it was precious family time. We played in the water for a bit which I must admit M didn’t love that much. Also, noticed how our holidays have changed. The playing in the sea was no longer a must. I guess we are well and truly grown up now that we are parents. Well, honestly, I don’t mind it one bit. We spent our evenings having chats and pakoras while watching sunsets from the hotel deck. No crowds, no cacophony, just us and peace. I loved it. We loved it.
What am I without you?
I am part of us.
Well and truly us.
