GOA This place has got some charm and addiction too. I have almost visited Goa for more than 10-12 times still never get bored of this place. Here the bike ride also give us joy. I don't want to reach any destination, just want to roam around everywhere. Here the churches are so beautiful specially THE BASILICA OF BOM JESUS in Old Goa. It is such a beautiful heritage. The BAGA Beach is one more beautiful spot that every tourist must go. The Panjim city,which is also the capital of Goa,is so beautiful, even the buildings and offices are so colorful here that no body want to get back to their places. Goa is so peaceful. I LOVE GOA. GOA IS LIKE HEAVEN FOR ME. Everyone must visit GOA atleast once in their life. Hence I'm ... read more

Asia » India » Goa » Anjuna Beach September 1st 2015

Sat in a beachside bar, catching up with blogs, an overwhelming feeling of happiness built up in my stomach. I don’t ever want to go home we thought to ourselves. Why is it that the beach does something to us? You soon become relaxed and you just feel really good. In some ways it is almost therapeutic just being there. Well for us that is how we felt sitting on Anjuna beach in Goa. Looking out onto the amazing blue skies, the sun shining brightly although you dare not look at it as it you would momentarily lose your vision. Instead you smile at its beautiful reflection or stream of crystal light sparkling in the sea seemingly moving all the way towards you. We sat there simply watching the waves furiously crashing into each other, making ... read more

Dudhsagar falls is among the tallest waterfalls in India and is said to be a visual treat. Thus, it had been in my travel list from quite some time (from my college days itself where it kept getting postponed). So this time around, when Vivek suggested that we go for it, I jumped at the opportunity to go there (though he had to back out). A few more people from my office joined me. Sulbha who always has issues finding company to travel with, surprisingly convinced her then flatmate Nidhi to accompany her. This was their first trek ever and little did they know that treks were not beds of roses. We had registered for the trek through Hyderabad Adventure & Trekker's club (HATS) club and we reached the railway station at about 9 pm after ... read more

Asia » India » Goa » Agonda July 21st 2015

This trip was my fourth time to go to beautiful GOA. I have visited Agra, home of Taj Mahal.....Nainnital, a mountainous region with breathtaking views and of course, Delhi, the country's capital with its many glorious fragrances of Sandalwood and Rose as we passed side streets in the downtown area. After a while, you will become accustomed to the horns blowing and the region's wonderful music playing in the distant as we passed in our rickshaws. But this new venture, Goa, was a whole new ballgame. We flew from Delhi to Goa in a 3 1/2 hour flight. The clouds were awesome as we headed to Goa with turbulence along the way and noisy Indians laughing and blocking the aisles as the flight attendants made their ways to thirsty guests. One thrill that we both had ... read more

Asia » India » Goa » Palolem April 11th 2015

I have had many happy years in my life where I experienced adventure, love, growth, happiness, friendship… 32 was not one of them! I did in fact experience all of those things in this year alone, but what forces this year off the list of happiest times is the emotional and physical turmoil that overpowered all the good. If you’re interested, I will share my story with you. It was a cold, rainy winter day… hahaha just kidding. Seriously, here it goes. I turned 32 in Dharamkot, my favorite place to be in the world, especially in April. It’s the only place I can always find peace and this year I even managed to stick to a healthy schedule waking up at 6:00 and eating only the healthy food I cooked for myself. I was nearing ... read more

Asia » India » Goa » Arambol March 10th 2015

We now have only a few days left of our adventure. The trip has been wonderful,we have seen so many fantastic and varied places, and met so many many nice people (and only a small handful of not so nice!)......but we are looking forward to getting home to see friends and family again. This last stop in Goa is really a holiday to recover from our holiday. We have almost 2 weeks to play about in the sea, lounge about in the shade, have massages and generally have a relaxing time in one place. Goa is quite unlike other places we have visited in India so far. This is hardly surprising because the country is so big (over 30 hours train ride here from Delhi), and because Goa is distinct in having been occupied by the ... read more

Asia » India » Goa » Candolim March 2nd 2015

Namaste from Goa! This is India with a subtle difference. We are no longer the odd ones out that locals want a photograph with. Candolim beach resort has a plentiful supply of Brits which incidentally make Colin look like a teenager and me a foetus! Benidorm does vindaloo is the tourist demographic here and I'm fitting in just fine. I didn't understand the 'package deal' attraction to Goa until now. It's more than double flying time compared to your average Canary Island, and probably the same mathematical formula for the price. Maybe, just maybe, there are cute little resorts all over southern Europe with warm air temperatures in certain months? But then you go to the beach! Sorry but nowhere equals this, not in my experience anyway. Miles and miles of beautiful hot golden sand with ... read more
