Day 1

Okay! so honestly, i will not begin the tale with how beautiful and rare bond we share and how it is super important for sisters to travel. Infact i recall, how as little girls we used to fight during the trips and embarrass our Mommy and Daddy.
But nonetheless, we had a dream to travel (just the two of us)  to check our patience levels (kidding :p)
The sanction was granted after negotiations and we were all set for our first sisters trip to Goa.
It was the New year and all the hotel prices were pumped up, so we booked our stay at the Sinq beach resort. It is a budget friendly hotel (except on the New year, Obviously :p) in Calangute. The first day was tightly jammed in Calangute side and so, we decided to stroll around the old goa. And Oh! what a beauty it is. The colorful little homes, with alluring christmas decoration was a pleasing sight to our eyes. We drove straight to the old goa, absorbing the beauty of the journey and visited some of the most majestic and old churches, It took us almost four hours to see the churches and cathedrals in detail. The buildings and houses are in vibrant portugal style and make you feel all the tones and shades of portugal impact on goa. There are also cute little coffee shops, where you can hop into whenever you feel tired.
Later, we went to Miramar beach and dona paula which i am not going to recommend to the readers because of its unexceptionality.
In the night, we went to the much hyped Club Cabana, which has beautiful and enchanting ambience, but like all other clubs, if you are not drinking enough you are the only oddball, which happened to us, we wanted to remain sober for safety purposes, after all it was our first trip as sisters and we had to take all the precautions. But, the club is beautiful and i would recommend it to anyone interested in good clubbing.

Day 2

The next day, when we could see the crowd fading a little, we decided to explore the near by places such as Calangute beach, Baga beach to chill and have a thrill of water sports. You can find budget friendly water sports packages in the market spaces ranging roughly from around Rs. 1300-1500. We also checked out the local market in the area, which by the way is very pocket friendly.
After that, we visited Museum of Goa, which is an innovative start up and is a must go for all the art lovers,it is less of a museum and more of an art gallery, the inspiration for the art is derived from the nature and mostly the mighty sea, It also depicts the future of contemporary art in India.
Later, by the evening we went to the casino, we preferred Deltin Royale because of the better rating and reviews. I think, people associate Goa to certain things and Casino is definitely one of them. The cruise of Deltin Royale is  scintillating white and golden colored, they have total five levels in the cruise, which includes Restaurant, Kids section, Casino, Poker and Roof top. The food is delicious and they also have arrangement for basic entertainment in the form of live music and dance. We managed to maintain a status quo by not loosing any of our points in casino. In toto it was a fun filled night.

Day 3

The third day was for the northernmost part of Goa; Arambol, Querim and Ashvem. We started our day early and witnessed the beautiful sunrise in Arambol. The northernmost part is less popular and hence, more peaceful, an ideal location for the tourists who need a quiet and relaxing vacation. You will mostly find foreign population there, It almost gives you a South Goan atmosphere. It was a perfect day in serene sense. Querim beach is one of the hidden beaches in Goa and there are almost no humans after the sunset and this only adds to its beauty and tranquility. Ashvem beach is mostly known as rocky beach by the locals living near by, since it has rocks in unique shapes and sizes adding to its beauty at the shore. We also visited Sweet water lake, which is quite a view. It was one beautiful beautiful day.
The evening was spent in Thalassa, which is located at Vagator beach and is an exotic greek Taverna. It gives you full greek vibes, the food is awesome, the vibe is eccentric and the performances take you to some other trip altogether. I recommend it to just anyone looking for some good time in Goa

Lastly, i would add that though there is going to be difference in the opinions and probably you will end up fighting too but it is going to bring you closer ultimately and will stay by you two lifelong.
PS: We are already planning our next trip ;)
