I have been traveling a lot to a lot of places for professional, personal & not so personal reasons. One of them was Goa and this is my first post on it. I was there on a much needed vacation of nine days.
Why nine days ? Well, we have been looking forward to such long vacation for quite sometime as we always thought a place like Goa can not be experienced in lesser no. of days.
Don’t agree ? Ok, expect a lot here on Goa from places, food, people, culture, sports, transport, tips and tattoos to almost everything and then decide yourselves. Not that I have seen it all, I need to go there quite frequently to know more & more about it. Nice excuse, eh ? 😉
It all depends on what is the purpose of your visit to any place. If it is a place to put just a tick mark to the ‘list of places to visit’ then even two days are more than sufficient. Our purpose was different. We wanted to relax, enjoy, experience and live the place.
Fortunately we could plan to be in Goa in March end. The best time of the year to visit the place is between October and March, when the temperature and humidity is more manageable and gentle offshore wind starts moving in.
Goa, who hasn’t heard of it ? One of the best holiday destinations in the world, an ideal tourist profile. Goa is a small land or an enclave along the western coast of India and is famous for its long stretch of attractive beaches, natural scenic beauty, churches & temples famous for its architecture, feasts and festivals and above all its warm hospitability.
Goa was formally a Portuguese colony till as late as 1961. Now it holds status of a separate state. But one can still see glimpses of Portuguese influence in their day to day lives.
Goa is divided into north and south Goa for the purpose of revenue administration with headquarters at Panaji and Margao respectively. I’ll be talking about both these places in detail.
I will not write here like daily encounters jotted down in a diary but as a collection of similar places or happenings. The tour was a relaxed one, we had kept enough buffer to enjoy it….
