A Visit to the Shire, Yab Yum


William Morris fans know that WM is credited with inventing the modern fantasy fiction genre and, further, that J.R.R. Tolkien credited Morris with the inspiration for The Lord of the Rings.  In Goa, I have found The Shire, also known as YabYum Resort, where creativity, fantasy, and DIY is the order of the day!   Below is our hobbit house, with pics of a few other of the domes scattered around the palm tree glade just off the beach.  From the outside it is hard to imagine these abodes being anything other than dark and confining --- instead, next post, they are too cute for school.

Yoga is big in Goa and twice daily classes are given in the Yoga "studio" near the beach.  Breakfast included and served to your door at time of your choice.  $50/night for this slice of goofy paradise.....
