Day 1

Hello everyone!

No matter what your dream destinations are,
Goa will always makes space in your wishlist.
Watching sunset on the beach of Goa will make you realize what you have missed so far.

We booked Redbus from Nerul to Mapusa because we didn't get train tickets.

You can always opt for train ( make sure you are booking your tickets 2-3 months before) or you can go by flight. Nearest airport is Dabolim Airport. After reaching Mapusa, at the bus stop you can easily find vehicles on rent.
We booked a scooty. Cost Rs 300 per day. Petrol pump is 2 min away from the stop. Rs 50 for petrol.

Stay : We have booked a room in "Flower holiday home in Landmark Down", Candolim. I would totally recommend this place for everyone.
It has a pool, beautiful plants and trees around. It's a good place.

So on the very first day we visited nearest beaches from our holiday home which was Calangute beach,
Baga beach and Candolim beach.
Place was crowded but was beautiful at night.
