#LiveLodgycal Drive with Blogadda in Goa
So if you read my Renault Lodgy blog post, you know last weekend I was in Goa with the Blogadda team at the Leeka Kempinski Hotel.
This time it was a 2 day stay unlike the Tata Zest caoporm-超频在线视频which was one day and everything was rushed, so we got time to relax and unwind. Also, there was no ‘Live Blogging’ thankfully :p And we blogged after reaching home and were given a good week’s time.
There were bloggers from Pune,Mumbai,Bangalore,Delhi and everyone reached on Friday the 19th around the same time. I and my team mate Ashwini were the last to reach Goa and we reached the hotel at 8pm coz our tickets were booked separately. The introduction had already started by the time we reached. Also it was raining crazily in Mumbai that day and our flight was late by 1 hour 10 minutes. I was sitting at the airport for almost 4 hours coz I was told by the Blogadda team to leave immediately as there is a lot of traffic but I reached the airport from my place within a hour 😀
We were welcomed at the Leela Hotels with a flower garland and fresh coconut water. We just checked in and had to rush for the introduction. A presentation was given by Renault Lodgy’s Mr. Maneesh and the host for the evening was RJ Archana Pania, which was followed by dinner at ‘The Restaurant’ in Leela which was quite a spread.
caoporm-超频在线视频Next morning was the drive day. We quickly had breakfast at ‘The Restaurant’ again and it was super yummy. I miss the breakfast 🙁
40 bloggers were all divided in a team of 4 from the start and each team had one Renault Lodgy. We were team 3 and we named our team ‘LodgySticks’. We started the drive from Leela Hotels and went to the Lalit Hotel. The stretch was beautiful,lush and green. And the car goes super smooth,so the drive was very pleasant in the rainy climate. You know how gorgeous South Goa is in monsoons, right!
caoporm-超频在线视频Teams were given a series of tasks and pictures to click in between. After reaching the Lalit, Archana took video bytes of few bloggers at the beach. The Canacona beach at The Lalit is just mind blowing!! We clicked lots of pictures there. Also since it is a Golf Resort, the luscious greenery was so pleasing to the eye. We had lunch at The Lalit and drove back again in different Renault Lodgy’s this time.
caoporm-超频在线视频The evening at Leela was to unwind and relax. There was a blogger panel discussion about professional blogging and benefits of blogging in general. The bar was open and we had the best band in Goa Forefront to entertain us. We danced like crazy and Neha Kapoor, Prateek Thakker and Omkar even sang for us, the live band to full advantage. It was a fun night.
caoporm-超频在线视频Next morning, we had breakfast and left for the airport as all of us had afternoon flights. There was a goof up at the end by the Blogadda team coz I and my room partner Neha were told that there would be buses from the hotel and while we were ready and sitting in our rooms for the hotel staff to take our luggage, for which no one came for 15 minutes even when we called twice,we missed the first bus. We assumed that there would be another bus in 15 minutes and then the team told us that now there is no bus before 1 pm (flight at 3pm) and that is already booked and all cars are pre-booked and we will have to go by private cab. So, I and Neha had to book a private cab as there was no other option, we expected someone to call us if the bus was leaving or the bus could have waited 5 minutes, coz the bus just left when we reached the reception.
Anyway, the flight was then again delayed by 1 hour 10 minutes. We safely reached the airport, though it started raining very bad and there were trees fallen on two of the roads. The driver somehow managed to makes us reach on time.
Overall, it was a nice experience and we had fun and that is what is important 🙂 Thank you Blogadda and Renault India for this amazing experience 🙂
