Goa - Sun, Sand and Beaches - Chapter 2


Well, this vacation meant a lot as we were going together as a family after a long long time. It took us 2 months to finalize the holiday destination. We started planning for Mauritius, Singapore, Kerala, Pondicherry (now Pudducherry) and then we finally agreed on Goa. Though we have been there before but since Goa has it's own charm and value proposition, the excitement grew each day as we  were nearing our vacation dates.

Selecting Goa was also a wise decision as we were taking along our 2.5 year old son and we didn't know how will he react to completely new place, that too for 5 nights. We had it in mind even if feel restricted with him on our vacation, it will not be a problem as we have been to Goa before and stayed in the same hotel and I knew what all facilities I was going to get. But all our anticipation was false. He enjoyed a lot and didn't want to return home at the end of our trip. More on this later.

Out of the Ordinary Places to See on Your Delhi-Agra Trip

Delhi, being a historical city, has many places to see that reflects its rich heritage and its modern metropolitan side. A trip to the capital of the nation is never complete without a visit to its neighboring tourist spots, with Agra being a prominent one. If you’re a traveler who enjoys the journey just as much as the destination, hiring a cab will be a convenient option since you can stop or take detours to the lesser-known places along the way.

When you’ve already been through a heritage journey and visited all the historical structures, take an offbeat journey!

If this is the route you’ve chosen, the Okhla Bird Sanctuary is a beautiful place to visit right off the bat. It’s on the Yamuna River, 4 square kilometers in size and has about 300 species of mainly water birds visiting it every year. The observation post gives an incredible panoramic view of the sanctuary.

Moving a little further ahead to the left are the Stupa 18 Art Gallery. Stupa 18 showcases the works of skilful artists, all of which make a silent connection with the spectator’s mind.
