Goa

I had heard a lot about Goa before I went and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Many recommended it for it’s beaches so of course it was a place I wanted to check out. People also said that it was heavily toured, that there were a bunch of hippies, and crazy beach parties. My experience in Goa was none of that. I went to three locations in Goa, all which were small beach towns hidden between palm trees, rice fields and the ocean. Nothing large or crowded especially since I was there in the off season. And the hippies?…Not sure what people were really talking about. Yeah there were some people with dreds and hemp clothing but you see them all over India so it’s not like Goa was a particular haven for them. The beaches were alright but nothing to write home about. Overall though I liked Goa and would definitely go back. I like the small coastal village feel about the place, the small churches, and coconut trees. It was serene, scenic and relaxing. I guess for India it’s considered a popular spot for tourists because it has infrastructure that caters to foreigners however it hasn’t sold out like most other tourist hot spots around the world so it’s worth a visit.

  1. Your site looks amazing. And I’m impressed, no beyond impressed with how much traveling you’ve done.

    So do you mind me asking how you make it happen? I am envious of this set up and I am working on making my own happen soon.

    Hi David,

    Sorry for taking so long to respond. Thanks for your comment. No need to be envious – just do it. By the sound of it, it sounds like you already have something in the works. As long as you have it in you, you will end up making it happen. Just keep working and saving money and you’ll be off sooner than you know it. I saved up for six years before going on my adventure so just remember to be patient. If you are trying to budget I would recommend just picking one region of the world and traveling around there as opposed to jumping around cause transportation is what’s going to cost you the most. Once you get to a place overall the cost of living will be much cheaper (besides N. America and Europe) so you won’t be spending that much if you don’t want to. Traveling isn’t about money, it’s about time and having a passion for doing it. Hope that helps and if you need any advice feel free to get in touch with me any time. Good luck!

    Best,
    Camilo
