"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams"
Goa is an astounding experience specially for north Indians, Therefore no matter how many times one visit goa, there is always an excitement of going back again. I have visited goa as many as 8 times in my life and back to back 3 times in a year, that simply shows my love of Goa.
Since i have visited many times, North Goa is on tips now and hence sharing the entire itinerary no matter if you are looking for a budget trip or a luxurious one, it will certainly help you.
A return ticket of Goa from Delhi will cost you around 8 to 9k INR if you book a month or weeks in advance. Once you reach to the airport, there are two ways of reaching to North Goa - One is Taxi, it will charge ~1500 INR or either you can rent out a scooty in 300 or 350 from the airport and ride it to North Goa & save on some money both sides.
I usually book a evening flight to land in goa so that i can directly jump into a party and book a cheap room just for luggage and couple hours of sleep.
Now the biggest question is which part of the North Goa to stay.
* If you are going as a group & want to stay at a happening & crowded place and does not feel like spending much hence Baga & Calangute is the area for you.
* If you are going as a couple & want to live classy and enjoy amazing crowd/cafes then Anjuna & Vagator is your place.
* If you are going solo & want peace along with parties hence Morjim is the place to stay.
If you cannot decide from all above, then stay in Candolim :)
I have stayed almost everywhere in North Goa.
In Goa ! beaches are everywhere hence i dont see a point spending time visiting one beach after another, hence few beaches suffice the purpose.
In my last trip, I choose to stay in Casa Vagator, one of the beautiful properties around Goa

I started my day early visiting "Reis Magos Fort" which is near Panaji. It is an amazing place to be in the morning & the views are good. But the best thing is the road that leads to the fort. You would ride along the shore with sound of water.
Best way to explore Goa is through a scooty so taking one is the best option.
Right after a beautiful morning. I headed for my breakfast at one of my favorite bakeries "German Bakery Anjuna"
This place is affordable and nice. Good breakfast gives you a different energy to head up for more.
After a little break back to my hotel, i headed to one of my favorite shacks "Shiva Cafe Anjuna". It is such a relaxing place at a perfect corner.
A right shack in the afternoon in the goa is a must where you can actually relax and enjoy the cold breeze at seaside. Prepare yourself for a blast in night.
A must thing one should do when they visit goa is to spend an evening sitting in a shack at baga beach closer to the waves. That gives a incomparable experience from anywhere else, that vibe, that crowd & sound waves makes it complete. Therefore i spent my evening on the first day at Baga.
