In Pictures: The first solo to Goa

I just got back from my first solo trip about which I had talked here sometime back. Unlike my other travel trips and escapades the plan this time was just to read, relax and maybe write a bit. And that is exactly what I did. This time, I was happy to be busy savoring some lip-smacking sea food, witnessing colorful sunsets at beaches where there was hardly anyone else other than me, and just lazing around on the couch for as long as I wanted to.

There was one more thing, actually two, that tried experiencing for the first time apart from being travelling alone. I stayed in backpacker’s hostels this time around (I will write about that soon) instead of putting-up in hotels or home-stays. And I tried complete the trip in a budget.

Because I hardly visited any of the spots in Goa in this trip, I think I could have saved a few hundred bucks more had I not rented the scooter for the four days I was there. I hardly used it anyway except for the time when I rode to the hostel and while returning from it.

Overall, the first solo was a nice experience with its own share of highs and lows and I am excited to share the experiences here soon as soon as I am done with the photos. Yeah! As always! I know! 🙁

For now, I leave you guys with some of the images shot using the mobile. Please excuse the terrible quality of the photos.

    • I love old places so yes I did enjoy that. Anything beyond that, I hardly went out this time around so as of now I am not in a perfect position to say if I loved everything about it.

      But if you take the humidity off, I enjoyed my stay there 🙂

  1. I will tell you what happened. I gave a very long comment full of well views and thoughts on solo travelling etc and your relaxing and being tranquil etc… then submitted… it did not go, it came as…your IT so you may know… the url some attempt1? came… I refreashed my comments did not go. Anyway… it’s ok… won’t comment if I can’t. Was there for a long time…thought you blocked me or something anyway.

    • Haha..! Why would I block you.

      But the software has a certain limit about how long a comment can be, beyond that is automatically not accepted.

      You are always welcome to post moderately-sized comments!

      • No it was not the lenght, everytime I commented it went and the url had attemt?1 something and it did not go… now it is going… the comment I posted the first one that got accepted here again it went and url turned attemt?1 and I went back and posted again and the comment appeared…anyway now it seems to be working… oh no again it went to url this time …and I went back and am posting this comment again…
