Goa is not only the land of beaches or city of churches; it's a feeling that defines thrill in most amazing way


Why is it so difficult to think of Goa beyond its beaches ? Even when i were close to my eyes a month back and think of Goa i would think of beaches - pristine blue with golden sand and perhaps a bottle of Goa's favourite chilled beer King's. However , that trip to the land has changed it all . Here is a small Travel blog story on Goa beyond beaches. We were a group of friends who have visited Goa last month , and stayed in local based house or bungalow ( lets specify this ) and yeah..!! it was awesome staying there rather than a 5-Star hotel ,thanks to our coordinator ( Rahul Patil and Vinay Humbe ). And this was perhaps my best trip ever to Goa. I did visit the beach , but that was the tiny part of the trip .I did so much more, things that can easily get overlooked if you spend all your time at the beach.

This is a quick guide on how you can spend days in Goa, exploring it's real way of life, it's churches in tiny villages, it's iconic Portuguese houses, street photography and of course, some unusual food.

The fort offers a panaromic view of the sea on one end and land on the other side

There is still so much more that can be added to the list and it would still be incomplete. But if you do love water, I can recommend a waterfall in Goa which will simply take your breath away - Dudhsagar falls!
