The start to an ideal weekend is waking up in this room situated at the edge of a cliff 🏔, overlooking the Cherrapunji valley and Nongsithiang Falls.
What do you say?😇
A 300-year-old Portuguese home in the fishing 🎣 village of Goa, this retreat is a portal to a Goan aristocratic lifestyle. In a quiet village neighbourhood and close to the river, a getaway here is all about the 'sussegado' life.
~ The meals 🍲 here are prepared by the locals of the village and offer a true taste of Goan cuisine, something you can't find everywhere.
~ Taking leisurely evening strolls to the village lanes to soak in some local culture and catch glimpses of village life in Goa. 😍
* Her Simple Love *
She told me that on a stormy day,
when all her posessions get carried away
by the wind or the sea or thunder-storm at the bay,
while setting her sails, she looks up to my face,
like I am her lighthouse standing tall at the shore
calling her back home, sound and safe,
and to this day, I wonder about the ingenious beauty
of a simple love, because only love could make you see
a lighthouse where others see a drowning man,
and I hope, the wave of her love
carries this dead man back to the shore
where he catches his breath and cries once more,
like a newborn out of his mother's womb,
and out of sheer love and raw instincts
may she find me, once again,
by the sound of my howl or my fading heartbeats,
against the flow of the sea and the torturous winds,
may she make it to the shore amidst the fiery storm,
where I lay tossed away by the ocean,
kept alive by her love, what if a little bruised or torn?
