What does Goa mean to all of us; sun, beach, shacks, seafood? It’s actually more than that. If you ever want to see the other side of Goa – tranquil, serene visit the Aldona village and stay at the homestay “Cancio’s”…The 500 year old Portugal styled house is a home to not only the friendly Amaral’s family but several trees, birds and two lovely dogs (forgot their names but they are adorable and had an experience chasing them back home with Antonio and was rewarded with a coalgate toothpaste). The place is far away from the bustling rushed life and brings you closer to yourself and opens the gates to the new Goa that you have never heard off. You will wake up to the chirping of colorful birds and rays passing through your window sill. Walk through the garden area basking yourself under the ray of the sun. The green pastures will walk you to the Aldona church, back waters and the nearby bakery. Though we had a short stay we were overwhelmed with the hospitality of Roberto and Raquel. During our stay we always felt we were staying in our friend’s house. The lovely chat with the family during our meals gave some insight to local politics. And our neighbor was a lovely young chap Victor, on the first night he fooled me to have a Fenny shot ……ufff my stomach is still burning …. Roberto and Raquel are doing a commendable job by giving a new experience to all who knows the only one side of Goa. We went to Goa to experience something new and we came back with an unforgettable experience of the new Goa at Cancio’s……………
