Default Honeymooning in Goa!

Hello Team,

I am getting married on 27th Feb and would be heading to Goa for my honeymoon. Although I have lived in Goa for 4.5 years I am sure a lot would have changed from the time I moved out of Ponda, Goa. I would be staying at Bicholim (Near Lake Mayem) and would need inputs on places which are just a stone throw away from Bicholim. Specially for Shopping. Any places of Interest near by Or activities to do?

I was referring to the "extra curricular activities".

May be you want to have a look at this thread.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...y-wet-goa.html (A YetiHoliday® - TheYeti®, TheOne®, The Activa and a very wet Goa)

And, personally don't feel honeymoon to be appropriate time for extra curricular activities.

IMO, honeymoon should be a time when you chill.
Chill as in absolute relax, do absolutely nothing worthwhile, and preferebly at a scenic place far away from civilization.

You ain't gonna get such a time ever later.

Correct. I have booked myself at Mayem Lake view. I got some good reviews about it and seems like its away from civilization. Hopefully, that's how it should be!

Ha Ha ha! Shopping would be during the times of "have a break, have a kit kat"

However, on a serious note, which is that famous fashion store in Goa which was there in DCH (something like Cosa's or ?). I don't plan to shop there but certainly click it in my memories!

yaar, 'that' activity can be done anywhere and not necessary to be in Goa. And then 'those' activities in Goa are best done when you go there alone .

Found this great hotel listed on another T-BHP thread and they are giving great 'honeymoon' package -- in case you haven't booked as yet.

PS: Jokes apart, congrats on your marriage and enjoy. May god bless you with all the 'fun' that marriage brings with itself.

Cheers,

Do post "nice pics" (of Goa, that is) when you get back.
