We always plan for Goa every year. But It seems to go wrong every time. Sometimes It could be financial or lack of time. So, Don't make a plan. Just pack bags, take keys, gather a squad and start the trip.

Happy Journey and A Safe Journey.

Day 1

We started at Bharuch, Gujarat at night around about 10 o'clock. We took an awesome snack at before Kamrej Toll Tax. You will get fresh snack 24 hours. Fafda and (Vanela) ganthiya at its best quality. A road trip always a beautiful and astounding experience. You will get beautiful scenery on your trip. We reached Mumbai midnight and trust me it is the best time to cross Mumbai. In day time traffic is very heavy. So, head to Mumbai-Pune Expressway. On that road, you will ride through a tunnel.

You have to reach early at dudh sagar beacause it takes too much time there.  After completing full day journey and returned to our place. We had checked out and head to our home. We had traveled over 2200 kms.

Total Cost for the trip of 5 Persons. 8,000 for Diesel, around 2,000 for toll,  11,000 for staying for 3 nights and 4 days. Food cost is up to you and depends on your choice of hotels and restaurants. Water sports are ranging from 1000 to 1500 for 5 activities. Cruise Ship cost you 500 per person(in 2016). You will re calculate some addition at present rate. Staying cost will be less cheaper if you choose near Morjim beach area. Last year I have booked a 3 BHK house in Morjim about 1500 per day.
