"Goa is just like that fever which gets within you at least for a year and you are left with an indefinable emotion. Every time you visit this place it will feel you with energy." ~ Quote from Easytrip.com
"You must visit Goa, at least three times in your life. Once with your college friends, next with your girlfriend and finally with your wife." ~ This is the exact quote from my Mamaji ( Maternal uncle). But I have visited Goa twice and both the times with my college friends from my engineering. Though as like many engineers from so-called non-IITs of India I too have left the field of engineering long ago. But these friends that I have earned in those days are still the most trustable souls for me other than my family.
A trip to Goa with friends means only two things:-
a) party like it's your last day of partying, and
b) create those memories that you will cherish for your lifetime.
And I have ticked both the boxes.
I am from Kolkata and my friends are living in Pune and Mumbai so I had to travel alone to Goa. Thanks to MakeMyTrip for my easy ticket bookings for the flight to and from Goa. I traveled through Indigo. They are great LCC airlines. Services provided by them are top notch ( from iPhone X 😉).
Hotel booking was done through OYO rooms as they have a plenty of options. Thanks to them for giving me such convenience. I had booked two rooms in 'Shivam Resort' near KFC, Calangute beach. The rooms were big, spacious and well decorated. But the only issue I faced there is that the plumbing unit of one of the bathrooms attached was out of order. And the people from the resort did not do anything about it. But the best part about the resort was its swimming pool where we have spent a lot of morning hours.
One the First evening after reaching there, we visited the most iconic Chapoda Fort which is famously known as "Dil Chahta Hai" fort after the famous Bollywood movie Dil Chahta Hai.
