Dreaming about Goa, India

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.

Interesting Fact : I flew to Cochin in India with Qatar and would fly with them again. If you are planning to visit Goa check Kayak for airlines and the best prices this is how I search for my flight : Click here for flights and prices

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.
