Island Girls Travel : Goa #thechillcreatetakeover

February 2017 - Calangute, Goa

On my recent trip to India I was invited to do a instagram takeover for #Islandgirlstravel an inspirational instagram account run by Chantal of Island Girls Rock

India is an amazing place - this was my second visit and again it was full of surprise and delight. Now i've been back home for a few months and back into the swing of London life I thought it was a good time to post a few pics! 

Pink Skies & Purple Huts

Starting my sunset obsession on this trip were some amazing pink skies in Goa...

Later in my trip when I met up with my good friend Latoya, she kept quoting 'Rose Quartz and Serenity' to me every time we saw a sunset. I had no idea what she was on about until she updated me to the Pantone colour of the year... The most beautiful combination of colours which for me have been the theme of many an evening.

After the jungle retreat I stayed in the most basic of huts on Patnem beach, Goa. I'm the kind of backpacker who is most comfortable when things are super basic i.e a small family run shack on the beach, a jungle retreat or the complete opposite - luxury accommodation! It's the in-between I'm not so sure about... I love the simplicity of having nothing but the sound of waves and the quiet hum of beach life. This hut called out to me and I was fortunate to have stayed here for a few nights before moving on. The fact that it was purple and called Fun-ta-stic was just the icing on the cake!
