Geo: 15.0371, 73.9894Ráno po probuzení vyrážím na kafíčko a Nutella croisant do nedaleké pekárny. Yan vyrazila na yogu, tak vyrážím sám. Netrvá dlouho a díky plné obsazenosti stolů v restauraci si ke mě přisedá německý cestovatel jehož jméno jsem opomněl hned jak mi ho řekl. To nebránilo v příjemné a zajímavé konverzaci. Společně jsme se nasnídali a kecali o životě. Za nějakou dobu se připojuje vycvičená Yan. Snídá a pak se loučíme s novým kamarádem a vyrážíme vybrat peníze do jediného bankomatu v okolí. Po návratu zpět do pokoje se pouštíme do véééélkého praní. Po dlouhé... read more

Geo: 15.0371, 73.9894Ráno se probouzíme v busu naprosto osamoceni. Všichni už dávno vystoupili a my pokračujeme do cílové stanice sami. Dorážíme s 1,5hodinovým předstihem, cěmuž se ani při stylu jízdy nedivím. Jel s náma jako když ten autobus ukradl. Je super být tu dříve, ale zato totálně nevychrápaný a někteří z cestujících i poblití. Nám se jídlo naštěstí podařilo udržet :)... Vystupujeme a poměrně snadno nacházíme hned místní bus směřující na Agonda beach. Nasedáme a hned si všímám tří čechuů. kteří v autobusu už se... read more

My husband and I stayed at Resort Lagoa Azul in November 2014 to celebrate our First wedding anniversary and have very fond memories of our stay. We checked in very early in the morning and were immediately moved to a very beautiful pool facing room on ground floor. The room and the surrounding area were clean and well maintained. The rooms are spacious and clean with nice big double beds, AC and TV with English channels. Lagoa has 2 lovely pools which are well-kept and there’s plenty of room for sun-bathing with pool service for food and drinks, so you don’t have to expend too much energy! LaGoa Azul is tucked away from the noise and crowds…a little oasis of peace and relaxation set in pretty gardens. Baga beach is only 10 minutes away on the ... read more

Day 11 A great 6am start to New Years Eve Day..... Out in a boat, watching the dolphins as the sun was rising. An hour trip that was well worth getting up for. I awoke this morning to dogs barking outside the hut, and in the background, I could hear the rhythmic rolling of the sea. I smiled conte try to myself and thought ... wwooaawww! After the boat ride we had breakfast on the beach. Tom and I chat such a lot, finding we regularly have similar views. We both continually agree what an amazing trip we are having. It has offered so many various aspects of India, but also the issues, and joys of backpacking. Today will be a beach day, a rare occasion before heading back onto the city. ......And a lazy beach ... read more

Day 10 After all of the ups and downs of yesterday, we ended on a high with beer on the balcony! This morning we had breakfast before sitting down to organise our next move. We need to arrange where we want to spend New Year, travel, and accommodation. After a few Internet issues we finally decided on Palolem Beach. We varied our thoughts between taxi or local bus, but given my financial situation, due to the loss of both cards, we agreed on low cost bus. We booked two nights at The Laughing Buddha beach Huts on the beach..... Then off we went! It all worked out perfectly! We are both very happy with our decisions and choices. Had a chilled couple of hours just sat outside our hut..... Daydreaming and chatting! We decided to go ... read more

Day 9 Yyyyaaayyyy..... An easy morning with no alam!..... And it's my birthday! We got up, got showered and all ready for a good breakfast. As we left the room, Muhto, and his son, was already waiting for us outside our door! We all went back into the room, as we needed to. catch up with Muhto. Hen Tom presented a lovely birthday cake that he had sourced through Muhto! It was such a nice surprise. I also brought one gift from home to open. Thank you Claire and Dimitri, I love it! I had a card from Tom, but not from home as we are travelling today, so I knew that I couldn't actually enjoy them here. We all had cake before breakfast. What a great start to the day. Thank you so much Tom ... read more

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but Happy Thanksgiving. This day also marks my 4th month on the road. This Thanksgiving what am I thankful for? First, I am thankful for my health. People take it for granted, but good health is invaluable. All the money in the world can't buy good health. It can help you afford the best in healthcare, medicines, and treatments, just not good health in and of itself. So health leads me to the second thing on my list... Second, being able to travel. I am thankful that I am able to travel the world, from the middle of the Amazon rainforest, to the Himalayan Mountains, to the most cosmopolitan of cities like Paris, Buenos Aries, New York, etc. I am thankful for the exposures to new cultures and experiences ... read more

Goa, India. Goa is exotic & is definetely not one of the places to stay in 5-star resorts! It is recommended to be as close to the beaches, local culture, local sea food, local pubs, local markets as possible. It's all about blending with the place to get the most out of it. My trip to Goa was 6 days long or actually, 6 days short! Because, it is one place which you can never get enough of! The best thing about Goa is that time just stops there. In all the 6 days spent there, I never bothered to look at the time. I just did not care what time of the day it was. Because time is not a limitation in Goa for anything. Goa is a well connected state to all possible parts ... read more
