A easy day trip from Mumbai to Goa . Look forward to beaches, waterfalls, landscapes in between With potential add-ons and side trips because… why not?

Whenever we hear or read a name GOA all we think about is beaches road covered with coconut trees and calmness. Goa is one of the place where we all bachelors want to go with our friends but yet its a dream for lot of people. I'll share about my experience of goa.

I was gone to celebrate my birthday over there. it was late night I caught a train from Mumbai we all settled down and then its 12am 23rd Sep. we celebrated my birthday in train with a music, shouting and cake cutting in train. it was just the beginning of our trip we were shouting all night "GOA IS ON" and then in the morning we reached Goa our bus was waiting outside and we reached our hotel.

It was a lovely beach we had a couple of beers some great food and a beautiful sunset

I'll suggest if you wanna visit beaches go in the evening enjoy the view

listen to the sea shores and just relax it's the most amazing feeling.

And the best part comes here I met a girl over there she was sitting and enjoying the sunset we both saw each other I smiled at her and she smiled me back {amazing} she was sitting alone so I went over there I sat next to her we had a conversation and we both were staying in the same hotel we both shared our stories and now the sun is set its almost night still it was a beautiful view the sea was shining like a pearl and the moon was looking unbelievable we enjoyed the whole night sitting at the beach

Next day we went down there to explore the market

The market was amazing there were tattoo shops, clothes with GOA written on them and

lockets designed of birds and different animals it was a great day.

If you want to explore Goa properly then I'll suggest rent a bike or a car and go wherever you want explore some undiscovered locations we were driving from north goa to south goa we travelled a lot and driving experience of Goa was really good as the roads were pretty good No traffic and roads covered with the trees.

You'll get pretty amazing experience.
