Weekend Getaways from Bogmalo
Road trips are boring, unless you keep experimenting new stuff, keep breaking your own records,which is exactly what we did. After a jog to Bogmalo beach from our college campus, BITS Pilani in Dabolim, normal people would've gotten exhausted and headed back. We weren't normal that day. Never mind the tiring jog of over 14 km, early, we were ready to go on a roadtrip to the north. We went to Vasco, rented a scooty and were off on a road trip. We hadn't decided anything about the journey. We hadn't decided the destination, we just started off for North Goa, for as far as we could go.

So, we landed in Goa at 2:05 pm and our driver was already waiting at the pick up location. We soon headed towards Gokarna but we first had to take care of our hunger pangs. So, we asked Manju Bhaiya to stop over a good restaurant. His next question was - "Non veg. or Veg?" and in unison and my friend and I responded - "Non-Veg. of course, koi doubt matt rakhna manju bhaiya." So, yes the next thing I'm about to tell you guys will sound a little strange but then some people really know how to maintain a work-life balance. So, it was 3pm on a Saturday, this is the usual lunch hour in Delhi, isn't it? But in Goa every other small cafe or local restaurant was closed except 2 main big restaurants. Though we had to skip those since they were not serving Non-Veg food. Finally, we found a dhabba that served local non-veg food. We decided not to waste any more time and headed straight towards it. We were stuck between pomfret fish and Kalamari fish. So, the question which solved our problem was - "Which has lesser bones?" We went ahead with Kalamari Fish, 2 plates of chicken fried rice and to add fizz, we ordered some Pepsi. The food was delicious and finger licking good plus our total stood at Rs 550/-. We then asked Manju bhaiya to stop over at a 'Theka'. It was actually difficult to make him understand what a 'Theka' meant but finally, we were successful. So, guys when you go to Gokarna, ask for an alcohol shop and not theka. :P
John's Seagull is one of my favorite places in Goa. The food is great (do try the golden fried prawns). The beer is good. The music is good. You can play pool when you're bored. You can take a stroll on the beach. You can stay late if you know the owner (which I do) and he serves drinks on the house (to only those he knows, and only after the places has officially shut down).
