Today, we visited a place called Chandor. In Chandor, there’s Menezes Branganza house. It’s a Portuguese house. It’s amazing—it’s really, really old, built in the 16 century. Read more about it here.
Waves? Water? Puddles? Splash? All the things are there – in Goa!
It was 3 days before. And a weekend, Papa was free. Where did we decided to spend the day? The beach of course! Which beach? The Vaadi beach!
We decided to have our lunch and dinner on that shack facing the sea. We went for walks in the water, collecting shells, splashing in the water. Of-course, didn’t I tell you – Sufi loves water so much , she couldn’t help going into the water!

In my unschooling life, me, mamma, and papa believe that every moment can be an opportunity to learn something new. Trips, of-course, are chalk-full of learning. All that traveling to and fro – by train or bus or flight, seeing so many people and places. If it’s a train journey, nothing else can beat the experience.
That was exactly how it turned out, recently, when we went to Sagara – my grandparents’ place. It was a week-long stay and full of fun and learning. There were many such moments. I’m sharing with you some of those that are top of my list.
Goa is the best place ever – for greenery and nature. No matter where you go, you’ll find a water body or two; paddy fields, cattle, cattle egrets and yes – wildflowers!
There is a place called Talolem bridge (with backwaters underneath) not very far from our house where we can hang around for hours. This place is rich in natural beauty. It is carpeted with wildflowers in different sizes and colors! This is what I love about being in Goa – we don’t have to travel long distances to find a special picnic spot. Like we had to – in Delhi or in other places. Here, you step out of the house, and you’ll find a serene, quiet corner to enjoy with family.
I felt so wild and free being there! I so love taking pictures in such places. The beauty of nature here was worth taking pictures of! There was no crowd though we were on the main road.
I didn’t have to worry when crossing the main road to run towards the other side of the fields away from my parents. I could be myself, express my joy and wonder by talking loudly, laughing wildly and running here and there. There were only goats, buffaloes, birds and us!
So, here are some pictures from that wild nature walk!

Do you know what is going to happen in the future? Well, i some how do, at least one event which i will make happen in my future. And that event will be 16 years down the line…That is us the 4 sisters, who are Me, along with my little sister Sufiana, with my 2 other Cousin Sisters, Sarah and Asmita. Will travel the world to places like South Africa which is one place i am desperate to go to, again and again, as i once went when i was 5 years old. And found it amazing! And loved the places like Knysna, Capetown, Harmanus! We saw so many wild animals there.
Hey today I’m going to share my Kashmir experience. Some days back we had gone to Kashmir. And you won’t believe how beautiful it was – the weather, mountains, streams. And well there was snow too. There is so much to see there. It was really peaceful…
Now I’m am going to share a photo essay with you all. I’ve clicked these pics with my Sony camera.
Recently I had gone to a homeschooling family get-together where I met some old friends, made new friends and had fun.
