Goa is the home to my deity Mangeshi and hence we used to always visit it at least once a year! Visiting with parents always meant visit to the temples and visiting relatives and then maybe just hang out at beach sometime.
I saw a different Goa with my friends in 2014 and 2016 but I could explore an amazing Goa only with my office colleagues last year! I always wanted to show this kind of Goa to my hubby and that's when we decided on the road trip!
A road trip is so much fun with friends..exploring all your favourite places and wandering through the woods, witnessing the heavy rainfall,the mist and also the lush greenery.
We started from Mumbai and then went via Belgaum through the Chorla Ghat. The Chorla Ghat is a beauty in itself! The road is surrounded by so many lush green trees on both sides, it gives you a refreshing feeling. We kind of felt like we breathed fresh air after a very long time!
Our first stop was Benaulim. South Goa is so calm, serene yet so beautiful! We have always preferred South Goa over the happening party lover's North Goa!
We always knew we weren't the tourist kind and we have always explored something different every time we visited Goa. This time we wanted to show our friends this different side too and we are so elated that we accomplished it successfully!
