Day 2

I had be planning this trip for months now and it finally happened . We boarded the train for Goa at 11.20 pm from Dadar station. We traveled whole night and then reached TVIM station around 11 am. From TVIM station we took a taxi to reach our hotel. It cost us Rs 500 per taxi. Our hotel was close to Baga beach.  It wasn't a five star but a cheap hotel . It cost us approximately Rs 1500 per day. It was known as Babu's place. It had not so great room service facility . It was kind of okay but it had really good interior.  The room was big with a huge bed and it also had an air conditioner. I was travelling with my family. We were all very very tired the day we arrived in Goa. So we decided to rest and leave for Baga beach in the evening as it was close by. In evening we watched a great sunset and clicked few pictures and then ended the day by celebrating my birthday and having fun.

Day 3

We hired a tourist vehicle to see the beauties of north Goa and south Goa. It cost us Rs 5500 for two days. For today, we decided to visit south goa.
We started the trip by visiting the Basilica of Bom Jesus. This sight has been shown in many movies . The first movie that comes to my mind is Dilwale. We visited the church there.  So there is this tradition in Goa that when you visit any church or temple or any holy place you are not allowed to wear clothes that are not below your knee - length. Apparently while visiting a holy place you are suppose to cover yourself. So keep that in mind while visiting any holy places in Goa. And from there we head to visit Dona Paula. Dona Paula has an amazing view. You have to visit Dona Paula while you are visiting Goa. You can even shop there as there are many shops there. They have a huge variety of bags, fridge magnets etc. And then we ended the day by visiting a few more beaches in Goa.

Day 4

Today it was north Goa. We visited the charpora fort and Auguda fort. And then we also visited a few famous churchs in north Goa .And then we visited Calangute beach. We thought that we would shop at the end of the day in Mapusa market and hence we didn't shop at Calangute beach. When we finished our tour we rested a few hours and then left for Mapusa market. But after reaching there we found out that it was closed and that it only takes place in November. So we had to go back to Calangute beach and shop there .While shopping there we didn't find any difference between the jewelry sold in Mumbai and in Goa. They were quite the same. Then we buyed some cashewnuts and chocolates, etc. After shopping we went back to our hotel had our meals and then we slept.

Day 5

Today we were coming back to Mumbai. We had wake up early in the morning and left for the TVIM station. We were waiting for the train as it was late 20 minutes. We then boarded the train. It tool us around  7 hours to reach Thane. After then we took a bus and then reached home .
