GOA – A break from India.
A place where backpackers put their dirty feet in the sand and flush away the impressions from a chaotic and hectic North India.
A place where people go to clean their head, to find themselves or to get a detox from reality.
A place where stories are written and where dreams come true.
Welcome to Goa – Palolem Beach
Palolem Beach is a beach that stretches between Patnem & Agonda beach in South India. With exotic flavors and a spiritual surroundings people are drawn there for chillout, yoga and fun.
Its vivid & alive in the daytime. Indians are nearly drowning in the water due to all the clothes their wearing. It’s a funny contrast to our little group of north Europeans lying half naked further up on the beach, shitscared to come home pale.
People are walking up and down the beach day and night. They carry such interesting stories, that you can see letters fall in the sand as they pass you. I was privileged to meet new friends from all over the world whom all inspired me in different ways. One of the most romantic and breathtaking stories must be how my dear friend, the rebel and uncensored sikh, Amerjit Singh met his wife, the spiritual and beautiful Colombian girl Catalina Lopez.
Three years ago Bobby was hanging out with his friends in one of the beach bars at Palolem beach called CUBA. Just when his friends was about to leave Bobby spotted an interesting and quite exotic girl at the other side of the bar. He walked over in his shorts, let his long uncut hair play in the wind and did a dramatic entrance. With his charming smile & cheesy lines he caught Catalinas attention at once. Catalina was backpacking and practicing yoga around India and had now come to Palolem to chill out for a while. Why not have a chat with a interesting Punjabi? After a few lines exchanged Bobby looked at Catalina and said “what if I asked you to marry me right now?” Catalina laughed and said “go ahead”.
A summer romance evolved to real love and big sacrifices were done. Catalina moved from Colombia to Birmingham and today her new name is Satraj Kaur. She is baptized and married with the lovely Punjabi man Amerjit Singh. When I met them again in Palolem, catalina was open and happy to tell me more about Sikhism which is the youngest religion in the world. It is a very warm and welcoming religion but it also requires a more strict way of living. Here are the five sacred sikh symbols that a sikh should follow, love and worship.
- The hair – God gave it to you for a reason, the reason is unknown but you should not met with Gods word
- Bracelet – Its like a marriage ring/commitment to God, but at the same time reminds you not to do bad.
- Underwear – Unsexy and tight up in a certain knot, this knot is a symbol that the only one that should unlock this is yourself or your loved one
- Knife – This so that you are always prepared to serve right
- Comb – It´s necessary to keep the hair clean and tidy. A Sikh must comb his hair twice a day and tie his turban neatly.
Not wearing sexy underwear or shaving the legs has ofcourse been challenging for Catalina, but she strongly believes in the five K’s, and as the wife of one of the “ambassadors” of Sikhism she will always be looked at as sexy, attractive, feminine and cute.
Bobby and Cat are now expecting their first child, let’s hope the little wonder gets the heart of his parents and sees the world as they do.

As sitting on the beach in Goa a few days after we discussed how we felt that this year would lead to something new and different, and it sure did. Its not very often we have deep conversations together, but the atmosphere made us talk about alot of different things.haha..
Come on guys.. I know it looks like a tacky postcard but its not! Its where we sat.. haha.. I promise! G took this picture :) Such a good photographer..
We are still the same chics we were five months ago, but two chics heading seperate but fantastic directions. One month is left on the ocean, untill we take off our safetyvests and move to the city again. I just wanna spread the love and respect to the world, that I own for Guro. She is such a tough girl and has taken a huge step the last months, desiding to quit her job to move and study in CAMBODIA!!! Only G can do that. Eco-tourism is entering Europe on fast-tracks and G will be one of the first to learn and know about it. Fantastic! Are you opening a hotel in Greece soon?
So to sum up 2011
How cool is this guys head?? He is a POLICE in Palolem Beach. hahaha.. Got to love India:)
SO FAR, boatlife, change of jobs, change of life and now more 6 exciting months to come. What more does 2011 has to offer? lets wait and see..

Great weekend with amazing people. A house packed with boys, drinks and champagne and.. guess what.. ME !! I was the lucky chosen girl to be part of a boys night. It went amazingly well, thanks to Hilton I think we discussed more fashion and Paris Hilton than what I do in girlsparty.
So as we speak about drama I might aswell continue on the same path. Am I too much to handle you think? Why is it so intiminating with focused,funny, smart and perfect women like me?! I dont get it..
Its not a matter of time, its the time that matters. Espen Hiltons new song release. To be found in Arena VIP, Barcelona performed live 18th of July. On my birthday. His album is called Espen Hilton. Check out more of his funstuff here

Anyways, so I had a discussion with myself and the patient (Miss G) a few days ago. Do you belive in destiny?? Guys, to many things have happened the last weeks for me NOT to belive in destiny. Ill give u a short brief of what was a lifesavior out of the blue!
MOnday morning, 9 oclock. I standing at work pushing myself to the maximum to get through the day. The sweat is dripping from my whiteblue face and I know I should be home in bed. Its a hectic week and I cant allow myself to be sick. The only thing that would make me leave is if my boss told me to leave. A few hours passes and my boss comes over "Mia, go home recover, get better and come back" .. Puhhh thank god, thought I was gonna die if I had to complete the days. Before leaving work I call G. She is home with bad aches in her stomach.
As I enter the door to the boat I just hear gasps and screams from the lower section. I rush down and find poor G sitting on all four in bed gasping for air. The pain is unbearable and I have never seen a person suffer as much as this. After a little while she crawls up the stairway and limps her way out of the boat. Hospital next.
It turns out her gallblatter exploded and they had to do a rush surgery. Things turned out okey but the doctors stated that they dont know how it could have gone if she came in later.. = If I had pushed myself through the day at work (which was the plan) she would have lied at home with a open blatter not being able to do anything. THe pain was so strong she couldnt even call me at work.
That is why, ladies and gents, that I truly belive that destiny plays a part in our lifes. But when it comes to G and I, I think we transmitt messages to eachouther without even knowing. hehe.. Long live BFF`s
G and I camping summer 2010
LONDON HERE I COME!!! 24 hour countdown. Better get rid of this cold!!!

As light turns to dark, i can’t help what wonder
What is it inside of me that cause all this thunder
As dark turns to light, my tears turn to smile
But why can’t I settle, I don’t want to act like a child
As this boy calls me to ask me out, I put on my shell and hide all my doubt
The pride I feel when he is not there, drifts away when I see him and give me despair
Why is it that a person judge after colour
Why can’t they be happy and show some respect – I just can’t help but wonder
Happiness is the feeling you get when hundreds of butterflies plays in your body
Happiness is the smile on your face, when you laugh even though you are lonely
As the world keeps changing, why cant our minds? Why can’t we grow up in these revolutionary times?
Let black and white be the most sparkling colour
Let the body be kingdom and let no passion suffer
