Goa is a three letter synonym to the five lettered word party across India! Goa is much more than a quaint town full of awesome beaches and glamorous tourists. It is the perfect amalgamation of Old World Portuguese charm with a native Indian tadka. Studded with enthralling places to see and things to do, it doesn’t take too long to fall in love with Goa. So why not explore the off-beaten path to make the…

In this post, I have prepared a complete guide to the backpacker beaches in Goa. Having explored Goa so many times and in all possible ways – with family, friends, and as a solo backpacker, I have experienced Goa in different ways.

With a small stretch of land that spreads on one side and the vast Arabian sea on the other, Fort Tericol is one of the most treasured pieces of history in Goa. Built by…

What is the best thing about an obscure temple in a thick forest? Well, it survives the deadliest of the attacks through the centuries to become a symbol of reminiscence of a glorious past that it witnessed, mutely telling the tales it has beheld for eight centuries straight. This is the story of Mahadev temple in Tambdi Surla, the oldest temple of Goa. I had never heard of this temple until recently. One day during…

A hostel this big? That too with a swimming pool? These were the thoughts when I looked at the pictures of Wanderers hostel on the internet while I was looking for a hostel in Goa.

Morjim was the first place that I wanted to stop over. This is when…

I had had a chance to travel to Goa many times. But, I had never shared my travel experiences in Goa so far on my blog. My reasons being, Goa is a well-known destination, and the beaches need no special introduction. Well, over a period of time, when my longing for the offbeat places grew, I discovered there was a lot more in Goa if I could manage to get away from the beaches. So…
