Sunday started with a heavy breakfast and briefing about the 24km Tata Zest drive that we were going to take in Goa with 2 pit stops. We were a group of 3 bloggers who were going to drive 8kms each and then each interchange. My group consisted of Nivedith G and Christine who are famous bloggers from Bangalore and Delhi respectively. We started with a Diesel car and it was wonderful to drive through some of the most scenic locations in Goa.
We had a comfortable drive in it but we missed the touch screen dashboard which is present in the Diesel version. The Harman speaker system in the car was wonderful, we had a great time connecting the Bluetooth to the speaker and then talk to our friends on it while driving. The AC was perfect and provided great relief for us.
Next we tried the Petrol version which had touch screen dashboard and also 3 modes – Eco, Sport and City which can be used in multiple situations.
It all started with a mail from Harish Krishnan of BlogAdda. He asked me to keep the weekend of 26th and 27th July free for an unforgettable experience. I was wondering what it will be as I know BlogAdda arranges some exciting events for its star bloggers like car drives, events, books, prizes, etc. Immediately I blocked my time as I was sure I was never going to miss it for anything! Slowly the details started trickling in that it was the beautiful state of Goa which is going to host us.
As a part Goan (I grew up there) and someone who loves the sunshine state, I was really excited to go there albeit for a weekend. And then the most exciting news came up – I was going to be a part of 50 top bloggers from across India who are going to be flown down to Goa to experience something which many Indians haven’t experienced yet – the smashing new Tata Zest sedan car! Though the car is going to be officially launched only in August, we got an amazing opportunity to experience it much beforehand!
We landed in Goa from different parts of the countries and met at the airport which was wonderful as we could put faces to names of bloggers we have following and interacting for a long time. We drove down to beautiful Zuri sands resort where luxury was at it’s best. We were welcomed by Harish, Anant and Ankita of BlogAdda who made us comfortable and ensured that we were fed well so that we could exercise our brain cells in a better way.
