A group of 13 friends going for a trip and that too Goa, is a big deal in itself. Group of 13 friends, for some it was just a normal trip with friends for some it was the first trip ever with friends. When we were making the plan, we knew that this trip is going to be nothing less than a roller coaster ride. We booked hotels and tickets before two months, so that no one backs out. We actually wanted to stay in a villa or something so we searched in air bnb as suggested by fellow travelers on tripoto, but the price were high due to December. But Somehow we managed to book rooms in the luxurious flats in calangute,Goa. (Price and name are mentioned below). We had a hell lot of discussion when we were making itinerary, which in end we decided we would make it in the train.
Eleven of us were supposed to catch the train from Ahmedabad which will drop us directly at goa. So we started our journey on 16th December around 1 pm. Due to some problems we were not able to get dominos on the train so we somehow managed to pass the whole day with the food we brought from home. We were supposed to reach panvel, mumbai by 11 pm where on of our friend was going to join us. So we told him to bring some vadapavs from mumbai, well he didn't bring the vadapavs but the sandwiches he brought were worth waiting for. We were supposed to reach Madgaon station at 7 am. So we slept tight.
