No matter how old we grow, summers certainly bring out that holidaying vibe within us. Recently, a friend of mine who stays in Delhi had been cribbing a lot. Reason? She missed beaches. That’s when I impulsively thought of taking her to Konkan. We Punekars are so lucky that we have this beautiful coastal belt at an arm’s distance. I’m saying this because we don’t really have to struggle miles to hit the beach. So there we were, three of us… on a road trip to Konkan, to explore the California of Maharashtra. If you’re looking for a reason to visit Konkan, we are here to help you!
