Location: Palolem, South Goa, India

MapHi Folks,

Its been a while since we reported but here we go: After a hard month of graft in Bulgaria whcih got us about 80% completion of work on the flat, we bailed out back to UK to find that our bags had stayed in Milan!! Only back for 2 days whcih we spent in the care of Meg & Jade who looked after us so wel they should really do it for a living! Thanks so much to you both!!! A hurried turn around once we'd got 2 out of 3 bags back ( the baggage guy actually sung the meatloaf song 2 out of 3 aint bad, down the phone!!) and we flew back out of Manchester via LHR onto Mumbai only to find that our bags were still in bloody London!! Loads of grief at the airport, a horrible night in some of the worst digs I've ever known to be described as a hotel and then 2 more nights in a better but v expensive hotel with no shower and worms coming out of the A/C..............we got our bags and an early flight down to Goa. AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After 3 years away I cannot say how good it is to be back; instantly recalled why I love th place so much even tho it is much more developed in terms of the number of buildings compared to our last visit. Have stayed in some great digs round Palolem, had some sun for the first few days and then torrential rain and a return to Monsoon for the last week or so. Regardless of the rain; we are both v happy and are so laid back, we find it hard just geting out of bed to eat!!! I think we have one or 2 more weeks of peace before the charter flights start and I can recommend this time of year to anyone who wants to see the place before teh season starts. Its rather lovely to say the least. Anna will probably post an update soon and we WILL get some pic's uploaded I promise. Are now reasearching flights to Thailand and Sri Lanka so will keep updated!!
