We landed Dabolim Airport around 11:00 in the morning. Took a taxi and headed towards Anjuna as we booked "The Hosteller" https://thehosteller.com/ (Budget friendly hostel with clean dorms & amazing staff). It is located just 2 minutes walk away to Anjuna beach. Around 12:30 PM we checked In and relaxed for a bit and then had a lunch in our hostel. we ordererd Mix Veg & Aaloo Paratha, Maggi and Oh my!! it was delish.
Started from Hyderabad at 9:00 am ,which is the earliest flight to Goa. Took a cab quickly to the hotel in Calangute.
With a content full heart and mind came back to sleep and packed the bags to leave for early morning flight at 7am at Dabolim airport
Got down at the Airport by 6:15PM, collected our check-in baggage and headed towards the arrival exit and we are welcomed by the Hotel arranged cab guy, and we headed off to Adamo the Bellus. The journey was about 1hr to the place.
A Goa trip is the trip that you plan with multiple groups of friends for years, and yet somehow your parents or your wallet keep you from setting foot in the Konkan city. Having had my fair share of cancelled Goa trips, when a best friend from school shifted to Goa for work, I knew Goa was finally going to happen soon - and it turned out to be sooner than I'd expected.Plans were made in a frenzy when our hometown meet-up plan had to be cancelled, I flew in to Dabolim International Airport from Bengaluru, another friend flew in all the way from Kolkata and we were warmly welcomed by our now Goan friend. We landed in Goa on the Friday night when cyclone Kyarr was not far from the Goa mainland, desperate to let the steam off after a long week and relive our school memories in one of the most exciting destinations in the country. Dabolim airport is a humble military airport, so photography is strictly not allowed and there are limited options for waiting or snacking in the departures terminal.We took a cab from the airport to our friend's place in Taleigaon around 11 in the night, amidst heavy downpour. GoaMiles is the Uber/Ola equivalent in Goa, so make sure you have the app installed before landing in Goa. If you're confident of your bargaining skills, use the price quoted on GoaMiles to get reasonable deals from the independent cabbies at the airport. Our friend greeted us with some port wine, and a platter of chicken masala, chilly mushroom and rice for dinner. In planning our itinerary for an offbeat Goa, we decided to give a chance to the Goan Western Ghats along with the cliched beaches and the parties.
