Goa

Hello my friends. I thought it was about time I wrote to you something about a place in my amazing home country, India. I realised I have not mentioned it really yet, and that is a huge oversight! My favourite place in the whole of India is Goa. I have been to Goa quite a few times now and consider myself to be a bit of an expert. It is such a relaxed and happy place, the locals and travellers are so nice. And I have a bit of a soft spot for a Goa party. I love Psy-Trance!

The Goa beaches are so beautiful, the sand is an amazing colour and the sea is so blue. The best time of the year to visit is probably November to February. It is nice and dry and not so humid as other times in the year. Perfect for me! Panaji (the capital) is home to such a mix of cultures, especially Portuguese and you can find many restaurants from all over the world. 

Get yourself a motorbike to travel around. Be careful on the roads though as the locals can be a bit crazy and unpredictable. Rental is very cheap and gasoline is also. You must go and see some of the beautiful temples and churches. My favourites are the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and also the Shree Manguesh Shantadurgai Prasanna Temple

Just make sure you leave yourself enough time to enjoy one of the amazing parties on Anjuna Beach.. You will not regret it!

Barid!
