RIDING AROUND GOA

in #travel6 years ago (edited)

We have been a little lazy so far, but lazy in a good way. Now we decided to do a bit of sightseeing otherwise we could miss the beautiful parts of this wonderful place.

MAPUSA FRIDAY MARKET

One day I thought maybe we should visit Mapusa market, which is popular by it's big size, variety and Friday evening when it's crowded. As we don't like crowded places, the best decision was going there on Thursday. We didn't need to buy something special, just wanted to see what they sell and if something catches our eye, we will buy.

When we went in, the colorful people and the stuff they were selling was attracting an eye. One sells everything for kitchen, the other sells some fruits and vegetables and the first impression and memory of the market is the pork sausages, with a very appealing smell, but we didn't risk to buy them, hahah. Actually, the whole market was full of different smells, but this is what makes it so special.

Need to mention that it wasn't crowded at all, maybe because of going there in the morning.
Well, luckily or unfortunately we didn't buy anything, hahah. The prices weren't so low and all the things were almost the same as we have in our village, so we spent there about 40 minutes walking around and taking pictures with people!

TIRACOL FORT

The Tiracol fort was unplanned we were just driving and occasionally arrived there. Nice place, with an amazing view, they have a hotel and restaurant there as well, but if comparing to other places we have visited, this one wasn't that interesting, because of amount of tourists who stay there.

PARADISE BEACH

When we saw this name on the map, we set the rout without any doubts. We fell in love with that beach, because of it's energy and the coast line, we were walking for 30 minutes and suddenly we saw a big banyan tree which was very unusual, but yet so interesting.

We sat on the branch and gazed at leaves, how they are playing with a sunset light and the waves were playing their own music, felt like we are part of the nature, everything became so close to us. Amazing place were to spend some time with yourself.

Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures, because the batteries for Sony camera are not that strong,but before that, we had time to take some pictures on our bike, so we did, hahaha.

REDI FORT

Guys, this place is a MUST HAVE in you bucket list. This fort was built in 16th century by Marathas , captured by Portuguese in 1746, then returned to people and captured again by the British in 1765. Very massive place and in touch with the nature it seems like art now. I wonder how beautiful it is there during the monsoon season, when everything starts to bloom and becomes more green.

The beaches are the places to realax you body as well as soul, and Goa has got numerous of them. Hope you loved being their. The muncipal market seems old and antique and the beaches full of nature.

Visit the 3 Kings Church if you still have time

That last photo is amazing... where was that? The tree growing out of the window is impressive! I love the photos of the market, too, with all those bright, vibrant colors. That sort of reminds me of the markets I used to go to when I lived in southern Spain. Fresh produce, colors, and a vibrant atmosphere!

Nice work!
