It takes five hours from my college to reach the beach brilliance of Western Ghats, ergo all my trips were last minute ones and proper research was long overdue. I flipped through some magazines to foster a proper plan for a rendezvous next semester with my girlfriend and regional convenience directed me towards the beaches once again. Goa is no longer about random shacks, sea food and a laid back holiday.   

Goa’s Portuguese traditions bubble up every year during the Goa carnival and has today shaped up as the most colorful and exciting event of the state. Dance and cultural programs are organized all over the state along with fashion events, live music, and a variety of traditional Goan and Portugese food to accompany the celebrations.
Muster up some cash as Goa introduces several new water sports this year for the adrenalin rush you deserve. Pump up your veins and check out the high-thrill WAKEBOARDING, a mishmash of water skiing surfing and snowboarding. Towed by a speedboat the rider is glided over the waves on a mini surfboard at 40 kmph. High speeds and technique with balancing being out of the scenario are the major reasons wakeboarding has been pulling crowds of adrenalin junkies lately. (Rs 2,100 per trip)
Old Goa. That’s the one place featured in every magazine. The Portuguese pulled off some of the hook architecture for their time and the majestic structures manage to leave you awestruck every time you stop by. The Basilica of Bom Jesu and the neighboring Sé Cathedral are the usual crowd pullers, but a walk down the lanes of Old Goa is the best way to explore the legacy of the state.
Silent noise Palolem - The mute concert. Blue for house, Red for progressive, bass and D n’ B and Green for alternative, R n’ B, pop….pick up your earphones as rhythms will be fed wireless to you via live mixes playing everything from deep house and breaks to progressive and chillout. Watch bodies groove to different beats as fire dancers and aerial artists drive you towards the musical orgasm, all in silence.
