Back to freezing cold London for New Years after two weeks in Goa and we’ve decided to write our stay down before it all fades away into the January grime. Our time here was beautiful, what more can we say? How many times in your life are you going to wake up every morning in a cottage that steps out on a sandy coconut grove right on the beach, drink your morning coffee on the verandah, eat the freshly cut fruit, head out to the white pristine beach and spend the day sipping lemon sodas, reading books, having a cocktail or two and doing it all again. It was just perfect. We went out for dinner at a few places in the evening but other than that we realised we just didn’t want to leave Yab Yum. I already want to go back again and now we’re in the cold thinking our stay was just a dream. So sad to leave, but so happy we discovered it. Compared to all the other places around it, which were either too basic, too expensive, or full of brashness and loud music and bad service Yab was just calm and classy and had a real understated attention to detail. Great!
