Apr 30, 2017 - leaving goa

I'm writing from a cab with a/c. Friggin amazing. Yesterday a couple of us ventured to the end of the beach to try to get to monkey island and butterfly beach... There's no monkey or butterflies there . There are people selling boat rides over there but we were able to walk across the river part between the two and just held our bags over our heads. It was cool over there.. it was pretty rocky.. I cut my foot on a rock :(. I've been keeping it super clean and with polysporin and then a dressing and a tensor wrap over top, and then a sock...

Apr 28, 2017 - palolem among others

We got here and had an amazing day on the beach. We walked down and explored. . It's a little more rocky so you have to climb and work a little for the view but it was nice. The three of us got to the end of the most deserted Peninsula of the beach, had a smoke and talked about our favorite animals. We came back and a girl spotted my Canadian passport. I hadn't met any canadians until today. On the beach today I heard a guy say " "hold on I gotta make some change and buy some darts" ...turns out he was from Ottawa Valley. We had a delish...

Aug 13, 2011 - Palolem

We entertained a few ideas about how to explore Goa; the front runners being by renting a car, or by renting Royal Enfield Bullets. Given the weather/rain situation, we decided to go with the car option, which, in retrospect, was not such a bad decision. We rented a red I10 from this guy Simplicio. His assistant, Spirit, candidly told us that they were not a registered rental agency, and if the cops stopped us, we'd need to tell them that we were Simplicio's buddies. Along with Spirit, we checked dents and scratches on the car, while a...

Goa, India

Dec 21, 2010 - Goa (Palolem)

In Goa kurz vor Weihnachten eingetroffen, fanden wir zu unsrem Erstaunen einen relativ leeren Strand vor -Grund dafuer war das europaeische Schneechaos auf den Flughaefen, welches bald auch Nordamerika`s Airports und den von Moskau betreffen sollte. Wir genossen also die Ruhe vorm verspaeteten Sturm, und verbrachten Weihnachten zum ersten Mal in waermeren Gefilden, als gewohnt. Auch unsre Schweizer Freunde Salva und Nicole reisten u. waren noch mit uns in Goa, wo wir zu Heiligabend am Strand ein ausgezeichnetes Festmahl an frischem Fisch...

Nov 23, 2009 - Week 3

Hi everyone - managed to get a good amount of time on the internet today as we are leaving Goa. We arrived on 12th November very late in Palolem, South Goa and checked in to a lovely little guesthouse. We immediately felt better - the air was clear - we could actually breathe! Had a couple of really nice days being lazy and soaking up some sunshine. We were really lucky as there had been a cyclone (not as bad as it sounds!) a couple of days before we arrived. Unfortunately on Sunday morning Laura took a turn for the worst and actually ended...

Travelling Hamstyle

Nov 4, 2009 - Goa

Sorry for being a bit rubbish so early on during our trip but we'll post a proper entry soon - just wanted to upload the photos (which takes lightyears) and let everyone know we are alive and well tanned and not burnt, and still no stomach bugs... Off to the beach now to catch our last sunset in Goa before hopping onto the non air conditioned non sleeper coach to Hampi where alcohol is banned so we'll have lots of time to upload our blog. :) Elina and Karo xxxx

Oct 25, 2009 - Seguimos disfrutando de la Playa =)

Espanol despues..... FER: Hello once again and still from Palolem =) I don't remember where I left off last time or what the date is or even what actual day it is =) (Trust me it's awesome) The day we arrived here in Palolem we checked into these very nice huts, but since we've moved FOUR times. The place has gotten better and better each time, but we're now paying a quarter of what we payed the first two nights. Let me give you an idea of what a day might be like for us here: Wake up around 9ish shower and get breakfast at one of many...

Oct 18, 2009 - Hello from Palolem, GOA

English at the bottom =) FER: Hola como andamos? =) Nos acavamos de echar una CENOTA de pescado. Yo me eche un TIBURON fresco y Caro un RED SNAPPER (no me se el nombre en espanol=) Estuvo bien rico todo, pero lo interesante dela cena es que... Bueno, llegaron una pareja y se sentaron en la mesa al lado de nosotros, no comieron solo pidieron unas chelas. Pero en cuanto el mesero las sirvio en los tarros se pararon y se fueron. "A QUE DESPERDICIO", le dije a Caro. Miramos como se fueron y el mesero dejo las chelas en la mesa... =) FER: A...

Apr 1, 2009 - Palolem, Goa (Part 2)

Palolem 11th March – 8th April 2009 We settled into our apartment after a while. It was weird after the beach huts and it took sometime. Plus the clock was ticking with only 4 weeks left of our little “holiday” and the realisation of returning to England and the scary task of finding jobs etc was sinking in and making us a bit depressed. It passed though and we had a really relaxing finish. During our last week, we eventually managed to lure ourselves away from the beach at Palolem and hired a scooter for a couple of days to visit turtle...

Palolem Beach, Goa 25th February – Present day, 2009 Palolem beach is like paradise – a beautiful bay backed up by swaying coconut groves. We arrived here on 25th February via yet another overnight train from Cochin in Kerala. On the train, we met Eve who was also on route to Palolem. She suggested we all stayed at Big Banana Beach shack, so we did. Turned out to be an excellent decision. We spent our first ten days living in a coco beach hut. James called it the “Wendy house” – as they are a bit flimsy but served the purpose of...

Feb 7, 2009 - Goa

Still feeling guilty about putting Sara through the endurance of the previous night's bus ride, it was with a huge sense of relief to arrive (looking like refugees at this point) at friendly Palolem in Goa. Palolem has a beautiful beach and everything you need for a few days relaxing and chilling in the sun. Typical holiday spot, with bars and cafes selling western food etc. In a way it feels like you have come back out of India again by coming to Goa, which is it's only real downside. So many travellers never make it further than Goa when...

Feb 6, 2009 - Palolem

Ahh Palolem, how I love Palolem, definately on my top three list of favourite places I've hung out at on this trip. Its the combination of a decent beach and others within easy reach, a good enough night life without the excess and a good variety of decent food that do it for me. Caz and I found accomodation at one of her old haunts, the new owners at my old haunt unfortunately making it less of an attractive option this year. We settled into a life of doing very little which is the way it should be of course, and loved it. We made met...
