The next two days we relaxed at the resort. We got up early in the morning. We had coffee sitting beside the swimming pool of the resort listening to the songs of the birds. S and I had lovely conversations while having coffee. We spent the evenings at the beach. The rest of the time, we either spent playing games at the resort, or just relaxing and watching television in the room.
We were not able to go for sight-seeing as there was a cab and auto strike. Traveling in a new place without public\private modes of transport is really difficult. The resort could also not arrange private vehicles for tourists as private vehicles were also being attacked by the mob. Anyways, we took it as an opportunity to relax at the resort. Also, the Baga beach was situated very close to the resort. We walked down to the beach in the evenings, spent some time there watching the waves going up and down, feeling the cool breeze blowing towards us and talked endlessly. It felt so much like meditation. I so much wish we could make everyday of our lives as lovely as those 🙂
A day before our return, we went to the Spa and got a foot massage. This was the first time S and I visited a Spa. The massage was really effective. My feet felt extremely light and flexible after the massage. In the afternoon, S tried a lot contacting cab-services/auto-services to book a vehicle for traveling to the airport the next day. But, none of them was sure whether they could provide a vehicle since the strike was still on. We were quite disappointed as the resort people also refused to help much.The only option left was to take an over-crowded public bus, change two buses on the way. Accommodating in a crowded bus with so much of luggage and covering a long distance seemed quite difficult, but we could find no alternative then.
Later in the evening, we thought of trying our luck once again by talking to the resort reception guys. And guess what, there was another couple returning to Bangalore by the same flight the next day and they were trying to convince the resort people to provide help. Thankfully, that guy arranged for a tempo-traveler for us. He said he would try to find out some more people who could join us and share the fare. We were so glad that some arrangement was done by the end of the day and we didn’t have to travel by bus. We didn’t wish to miss our flight to Bangalore at any cost 🙂
The next day, we got up early, had breakfast and left from the resort towards the airport. We boarded the flight and reached Bangalore early in the evening. Our nice trip had come to an end, but the memories would last forever 🙂
