Goa, the place where I reborn and most likely I have some past connection 😀 A never ending adventure and exploration. It’s been 2 years since I am exploring Goa and realized, Goa is only a tiny land on a map. In real, Goa is mystery land with lush greens and blue ocean. Goa is more than a cheap booze, sea food and casinos. Goa is more than scam drugs and Russians. Goa is more than a loud music and all night club parties. Goa is one of the little paradise on earth which every 5 kms the language changes. Goa is full of mystery, history and mind blowing architectures. Goan Spices is something we never talk about. Goa’s list of beaches comprises of 54 beautiful beaches. Goa is more than Calangute, Baga, Vagator, Anjuna, Miramar, Colva, Palolem and Arambol beaches. Start explore Goa like never before!! Take the ferry ride, go to other island, eat local, travel in bus, shop at local fish market, take a train from Madgaon to Karmali, go fishing at Baga River, and much much more. In past 2 years, I manage to find around 50+ Hidden Gems in Goa (still need to tick off many!) including some cute hideout places you never thought existed, where you can be grateful of being alive. Spend some quality time with your best pals, your family. Be close to nature. Chill out. Eat grilled fish; have chilled beer. Witness magical sunset every day. Wash away your problems. Start afresh 🙂  Continue reading “GOA – the mysterious and unique coastland of India.”
