Hey guys, I'm back with a really exotic beach getaway. I'm calling this a getaway because it was like go-go for us. As I live in Pune and Goa is like 10-12 hrs from bus as well as train from Pune and as I was on a budget I didn't want to travel by air. (Tip: whenever you have a long journey like this always prefer night buses because you don't get bored travelling or waiting for your destination to arrive as you are sleeping and also you reach the destination in the morning.)
I made a lot of mistakes while planning this trip but also learned a lot of experience and the reason I'm sharing this so that you guys don't do it. So for the starters, start making bookings for Goa at least a month before, because otherwise it is going to be costly and specially in the months of NOV-DEC, 3 months in advance at least. As far as Gokarna is concerned, it's picking up the pace for tourism because when I was booking, one hostel was already fully booked. So, enough with the introduction guys, lets start with the not-so-well-planned trip.
