Wanderlust With Parikshit | Goa

 

The Unexplored Goa

This is Goa without loud music, bright lights, parties and debauchery. Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort and Air India gave Parikshit and a lucky City1016 listener an opportunity to explore the unexplored Goa.I am using the line that the manager of Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort in Goa told me – “This is Goa, full relax scene.”  It was a relaxed scene by all means, right from me getting upgraded to business class by Air India on my direct flight from Dubai to Goa to trying our hands at Fishing in the Sal River. We cooked our catch and the next day we went to see how spices grow. This has been one amazing experience. Thank you Mayfair Hideaway Resort Spa and Air India.

Check out my live blog from Goa :

Wanderlust with Parikshit is going to Goaaaaaaa with a lucky City1016 listener and I am upgraded to business class (thank you Air India). Woohooooooooo! You can sense my excitement in my sentences. Keep following my journey! Also I am staying at Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort. It’s going to be so much fun.

 

 

I am not alone on this journey! Meet Avinash, he is the lucky listener who is travelling with me to Goa and it’s his first time!

 

Last night on my Air India flight I met this lady – Ritu Jalali. She is an ex Supreme Court lawyer and an ex teacher. Now a home maker and a part time tarot card reader. She’s on her way to Goa for a school reunion after 25 years. Mrs. Jalali really wanted to go for her reunion but she was hesitating to travel alone, her 15 year old son pushed her to book her tickets hours before the flight. It was her first time she broke out of her household routine and she didn’t even know who was going to pick her up. All the best Mrs Jalali! Have a crazy trip.

Meanwhile it’s Day 1 in Goa and Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort have a lot of things planned. Keep watching this space for more.

 

 

My view right now from my Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort’s room here in Goa. It’s an exciting day ahead. I just had a really yummy Masala Idli and lots of fresh air for breakfast. A big shout out to our friends at Air India.

Wanderlust with Parikshit is blogging live from Goa.

 

Hospitality at a hotel is a very common thing but last night I experienced something for the first time. Air India ground staff here in Goa made me feel really special. Thank you Rahman Bhai and Air India.

I write this post as I sip on my killer Masala chai at the Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort in Goa.

 

Posting this from the infinity pool of Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort in Goa. Our lucky listener Avinash enjoying a swim. Uff! Pehle pool mein jump karo, phir photos lo! Such a tough life. #WanderlustWithParikshit is in #Goa.

 

On our way to catch some crabs and also try our hands at fishing. This is Goa without parties and clubs.

#WanderlustWithParikshit goes to #Goa

 

I never thought I would hold an alive crab like that. Hours of hard work and dedication is now showing. Now time for cooking some authentic Goan food with our catch.

Wanderlust with Parikshit is exploring Goa!

 

Ok! Honestly this is not what I was expecting when people at Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort said we’ll cook our catch together. Live cooking station with really fresh fish and crabs. Mind = Blown. Wanderlust with Parikshit is cooking now in Goa.

 

Me, Avinash and the crew trying to catch some fish from the Sal River in full on Desi Style. No Fishing rods or equipment. Just a bait and  lot of patience.

It’s checkout time and I am doing it before noon. Boom! It was also time to thank the amazing staff at the Mayfair Hideaway Spa Resort’s staff in their own style.

Me and our lucky winner Avinash went to a Tropical Spice Garden, personally for me it would be really hard to look at a clove, ginger or other spices the same way again. Post that we had an organic Indian Lunch at the same place and the food was simply out of this world.

After a heavy lunch we went to the Old Goa Church. It was serene and had a lot of hustle bustle at the same time. Christmas is around the corner. This is one place you should visit during the festive season.

We went out together, we ate together and we stayed up all night talking about travelling. Avinash you’ve been an amazing travel buddy! Thank you.
