We met at the airport! Our coach took us to the hotel - The Leela Kempinsky resort.
We had a smooth checkin, courtesy BlogAdda's efficient team.
Went to room, took little rest and headed to beach. Weather was amaaazing, wind was strong, overlook of the beach surreal! See Prateek battling hard to hold the umbrella!
And few pics of surrealism!
After a sumptuous breakfast, we were ready for our drive. Plan was to drive from Leela to Lalit Ashok, participating in a tweet-fest where we were supposed to spot stuff on the way. Our Lodgy was slick and shining was waiting for us in all its glory and off we went on our quest!
Lodgy is a comfortable MUV, it is very comfortable, so much so that I took a short nap! As we drove along, we took pictures along the way and had a true gala time! We also had Shreyas for the company. We used his ProCam to shoot interesting videos too. It was truly a fun filled ride, trying to spot stuff being live tweeted by BlogAdda team. And Lodgy was our trusted friend, ferrying us from one spot to another comfortably. We were supposed to spot a lady with pink umbrella, a man with red shorts, fish, mango tree, yellow house, among others and here are few pics.
The red car we had to spot -
Too bad, we did not have time for Beach Shack and had to head for lunch.
And this pathway led to our sumptuous meal -
Bloggers cannot miss a chance for group discussion, can they?
Our Lodgy waits for us for us.
We had lunch at Lalit Ashok and it was time to drive back.
We drove slow this time, savoring the beauty of nature.
When Goa calls, how long you can shy away from temptation. Well team wanted to have some Jolly time and we spotted Jolly bar, just the place for interesting conversations.
And we were back to hotel in time to be ready for evening session. There were interesting stories shared and we had a good time.
And finally the event concluded with cocktail party, dance & dinner! Forefront - a truly wonderful Goan band gave us company and all the jazz required to make it a truly memorable evening! We danced, and danced, and danced to our hearts content.
Next day, slept late and it was time to checkout and go back our lives in another world! Thus having lived a truly #Lodgycal Weekend, we were ready to take the world head on. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet really cool people, make new friends, have interesting conversations and feel truly alive.
Not only I made friends, I also took an impromptu lesson in photography from Giri of Phonelicious fame. Murtaza helped in testing my newly polished skills -
Not too bad I guess. Giri, did I make you proud?
And thus came the time to say Hasta la vista to our newly minted friends. Until next time folks -
The Lodgycal Gang -
Thank you Renault India & BlogAdda for giving us this opportunity, what a #Lodgycal weekend it was!
Need I say we are already ready for the next :)
