Once in a while you need to pack bags, get your girls and go on a road trip. Yeah.. yeah.. nice saying but all these things are practically impossible when your friends are married, Living in a different cities, having kids, family, jobs and other stuff in their lives. So Goa plan was next to impossible for us. But when it our their best friend's bachelorette, everyone's answer was "Hell Yes".
We 7 girls decided to go to South Goa for my friends bachelorette. "South Goa" because we heard its so beautiful, uncommercialized and serene. Later we realized beautiful was just not the right word.
We preferred bus from Pune as it was matching our office timings. Ticket cost was around 1400 each and was worth it (for me being Anti-Bus person). It's about 10 hours journey from Pune but we reached late because of some accident and traffic jam in between. I'll suggest, plan to reach early so that you can utilize whole day.
Commute options for South Goa:
Nearest Bus stop: Madgaon
Nearest Railway station: Madgaon Junction
Nearest Airport: Dabolim Airport or Goa Airport (GOI)
By Road: Goa road trip is most recommended one via Mumbai Goa Highway.
