Goa-north goa

it is country club resort at Anjuna Beach





Goa-north goa

we took a one day tour for north Goa, from Fernandes travels, here the buses are normal ones, no AC coaches.But in Goa, though weather is humid and sultry, breeze is so much, sometimes it looks as if you are going to fly with this fast wind,its really pleasant.North Goa is mainly beaches, first Miramamr beach,its in the city of Panaji,3 kms only,then Fort Aguada---this is actually a reservoir for water supply, as Aguada means water in portugese,its a 17th century fort,now looks like in ruins like in Mandu ,we passed thru a lake and boating point where dolphin shows are organise,sadly not there now a days(same reason-offseason),( i took this trip in July) for the namesake he took us to a temple also, nothing famous, as the famous shanta durga temple is on some height and one has to climb some stairs and all,passed through mapusa city,its famous for its friday bazar, not there now a days-again the same reason:(,its capital is Bardez,then to Vagator beach--here Rangeela was shot,and many other movie, its quite long and they say there is avery good statue of head of lord shiva made by some hippy,though we couldnt see it as it needs lot of walking and climbing rocky train, me being an old person not possible, but its surroundings were beautiful with tall tress all around, thought they are spread all over goa.Next is Calungate beach, this is the longest beach and very popular in the season and last is Anjuna in this tour, at Anjuna Musafir was shot:). We had lunch at vagator beach, as that was the scheduled spot from the tour management,and as usual it was not good food.
One thing I saw in Goa that most of the restaurants are bamboo shacks with music and all, and speciality everywhere is sea food,and most of the people sitting ,drinking, as wine,feni,bear everything is very popular and cheap here.
we always had dinner at our resort, as the vegetarian food was just superb over there with good service and very nice , romantic surroundings .(ducks roaming in the waterways-I liked watching them).

Note..I own a membership in Country club and I would like to rent out my time share sometimes.In Goa their resort is at Anjuna beach.a very good location and it has very good facilities too..rest places also one may check on their website.http://www.countryvacationsindia.com/..if anybody is interested in going there, please mail me ..it takes two weeks to get the reservations done.
