I have travelled to many parts of India, but it is the state of Goa that has got me drawn to. I arrived in Goa in month of December and it has now been just over a month that I have been experiencing life here.
I have been staying with a few friends that hired a villa that was put on the market by Asiatic Realtors. This lovely place is located in a tiny village of Ashwen situated in the northern part of the state. Villas of this nature are very popular here in comparision to apartments and cramped up studio apartments. Villas bring about their own private space and you pretty much have the whole place to yourself. This particular villa has 4 bedrooms that are occupied by a few friends. In all we are a total of 5 people and pretty much keep to ourself the entire day and catch-up for a chat in the evenings. The kitchen though is common to all and every bedroom has a bathroom attached to it as well. A nice swimming pool with a tiny garden to the side of it makes for a nice little hideaway- to read a book or simply laze. The villa also has a terrace that overlooks the main road, it makes for a nice spot to hang-out in the evenings with the gentle breeze that flows by as you gaze the stars.
The beach is just a few minutes away and is perhaps the best part of living here. I spend most of my time by the beach, soaking up the sun or talking a walk in the evenings.
