Dreaming about Goa
I have fallen in love with South India. After a brilliant stay at the Indian Summer House our host gave us all a different book on a Indian region as a parting gift and I got Goa. Since then I have been dreaming of going back to South India to the white beaches of Goa.
I am hoping to visit Goa next year as part of an Asia trip so have been doing a little research and its just making me wish I could go tomorrow. I was worried about getting sick in India but I followed some simple tips and I didn’t get Delhi belly.
The people in South India are so welcoming and friendly and there is no need to worry if you don’t like spice as I don’t really like hot food and I always found something tasty to eat.
My friend went on Holiday to Goa and shared her story on my blog and even when I read that I am so jealous as it is still a place I really want to visit. I am hoping to take my mum as she loves India and I think we could do a beach holiday and also some sightseeing.
Best time of year to visit Goa
The best time to visit Goa seems to be Mid Nov to Mid February for the best weather.
However I absolutely loved touring South India in August which was monsoon season but if I was to go to Goa it would be for the beaches so I would make sure I was going when they have the best weather.
What can you do in GOA
It does seem that most people are going to Goa for the beaches but if you want to see abit more of the region there are plenty of wildlife and nature parks.

After a short ferry ride ferry to the marshes, hop in a canoe for a guided tour to see what birds you can spot.
