Bucket list items crossed off in Goa

Standard

The kids got to do many things that were on their India bucket list during our Goa trip.  The first and the biggest was parasailing! Kaden was wanting to go parasailing from the moment she learned about Goa. I didn’t think that kids could go, but I was wrong. The parasailers in front of the Taj were three times the going rate at Baga Beach. But I am getting better at bargaining. And double the price was worth it to go up in the air far away from any other boats. It was a place of controlled chaos in Baga with jet skis, parasailers, and banana boats zig zagging around one another with few rules!

  

Yes, that is Kaden and I tethered together way up in the sky!  It was remarkably peaceful up there and not scary at all.  Coming back down they let our legs take one dip in the water and then we safely landed on the boat.

  

Here we are coming back in!

The kids also were wanting to get henna tattoes while in India and they got some great ones in Goa. In fact, 5 days later, they still look as dark as they did on the first day! And the kids got to let them dry as they chilled in the kids’ activity center and watched the Smurfs movie!

   

Kaden has always wanted her hair wrapped–especially since her friend Lauren returned from the Caribbean. She got her wish at the Taj in Goa. She is very pleased!

  

Kaden and I also got our toes painted with some fancy Indian sparkles! Mine had a little orange sparkly flower on the big toe and little orange dots on the other toes. Kaden had sparkles on the big toe.

   

Lastly, the kids got to taste coconut water right out of a coconut! A much better showing than the coconut attempt back at home last week!

   

As for me, I got a lovely massage at the spa, including a foot bath filled with rose petals and a detoxing lemon ginger drink when I was finished. Now that’s a vacation!
