Admit it. You have been a part of at least one “Chalo Goaaaa” WhatsApp group where you got spammed by your yaars with their persistent pleadings to make a trip soon. But if there’s anything that this life has taught you about Goa plans it is- “Woh Goa plan hi kya jo ek hi baar me successful ho jaaye?”
But to quote Shahrukh Khan “Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho ... toh puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai” And, then one fine day it happens like magic.
These are some emotions that you go through when you FINALLY get to explore Goa with your friends.
When you realise there’s only 3 of you who actually turned up when 15 others had said yes.
When you thought you’d spend hours exploring Goa on bikes but realise no one actually knows how to ride one.
When you hit the beaches to soak up some sun but soon feel ‘do minute aur ruke toh jal jayenge’.
When you load up on chunky jewellery from the flea markets but don’t know where to wear them except for your next Goa trip.
When you make plans for scuba diving but realise ‘darr k aage jeet hai but meri swimming weak hai’.
When you can’t decide on one single itinerary because everyone has a different plan.
When you miss catching the sunrise because there’s always this one late lateef yaar who poops on everything you plan.
When you think you will find a partner in Goa but end up with your same old yaars.
When you decide to catch some waves all alone but realise it isn’t as easy as it looks.
When you think you’ll flaunt that beach bod of yours but realise your abs are protected by a layer of that goan choriz pav.
Hits a little too close to home, doesn’t it? Any fun Goa stories you’d like to share?
