I have visited Goa many times with different groups of friends and office colleagues in the past. However, I was sick and tired of visiting the same noisy beaches of North Goa (Baga/Calangute/Anjuna), and doing the same routine of pubs and drinking.
Hence, I decided to take off all by myself and explore the part of Goa which many people tend to ignore. This was the basic idea behind visiting offbeat places like Tambdi Surla Temple, Mollem National Park, Mahavir Sanctuary, Cabo De Rama Fort, and Ancestral Goa and Cross Museum.
I have written a detailed travelogue of the same at the link below. Do visit if you are interested. I would be happy to inspire people to stop looking at Goa as a purely party destination and get to know the real essence of the place.
