Nice log, yeah as you have mentioned right time to change your camera A general gesture, I am not negative about your pics.

Hey wasn it difficult to manage 150kmph with 4 adults, and 3 kids? I think that would have been a bit uncomfortable ride for the folks?

Nope. Infact the guys enjoyed the ride. Most of the time they were sleeping.

The travelogue continues. My 2nd day in Goa....

Day 2 (10.10.08): Got up early morning (0600 hrs) and planned for the day. Took bath and got ready. My friend and his family joined into our room. Now we wanted to plan for the day. We wanted to visit Candoleium Beach (for bath in sea), Mangeshi temple, Francis Xavier Church (in old goa), Dona Paula, Miramar beach and Cruize on river mandovi. But ultimately had to drop river cruize as it started raining. Had to postpone the cruize to next day. Came back to hotel. Freshened up and left for candle light dinner in Curry house in Candolim. Its a nice decent place. We had dinner here during our last visit. Price is reasonable. (But who cares for the price at that time, right?). Some more pics...enjoy maadi.

Few snaps of Candolim Beach where we took bath.

Hey Srini, Nice travelogue. You visited Goa in right time. I feel it was not that crowded. How is road condition inside Goa ?

Regards,

Ravi.

Thanks Ravi. Roads inside Goa are good. (as usual no changes). But the traffic has increased.

Default 3rd day - 11.10.08.

Day 3 (11.10.08): Started the day visiting the Sincolieum beach, Calangute (for shopping & lunch in Vrundavan resturant. The resturant is OK and reasonable), Baga beach (very brief visit), cruize in evening. In sincolieum beach, we did a dolphin drive inside the sea. They charged 200/head. It was a 1 hour drive in a motor boat inside the sea for seeing dolphins. We did see dolphins swimming merrily around 4 times. Then we went on water scooter for a ride. They charged Rs.150/person for a ride for 5 mins inside the sea. then went for a cruize on river mandovi. Had dinner in Panjim itself in Shiv Sagar resturant. It is a typical normal darshini in Goa (Bangalore ishtyle).

Snaps of Sincolieum beach.

Thanks Pavan. It was 670 kms drive. I took around 12.15 hrs with 3~4 stops. One for b/fast, loo & changeover of drivers, one for lunch, 1 for snacks amounting to around 1~1 1/2 hrs. So the driving time if we take out the stoppages is 10.45 hrs.

Default Day 4 (12.10.08)

Day 4 (12.10.08): Planned to cover lots of place this day as it was the last day of stay in Goa. Planned Baga beach (long visit), Lunch in Sweet chilli, Visited the Chapura fort (where the Dil Chata hai was pictuarized), Vagator beach ("tanha tanha" song of Rangeela was pictuarized), Anjana beach, Fort Aguada (for viewing sunset) and light house and at last a candle light dinner over calangute beach in Souza Lobo.
We planned to visit Baga beach in morning (for taking dip in sea) - spent a lot of time here. Came back to room took bath and headed for straight to Sweet Chilli for Lunch a good resturant. The food is a little costly here. But it is worth the spend. Spent a good 2 hours eating. Food is tasty. They have the song/dance programes on every day evenings.

Here are some of the snaps of Baga Beach
