15 Best Things To Do in Goa

It’s been nearly a few months since my Sri Lanka Backpacking trip and I started feeling my wanderlust again. So this time I chose to backpack Goa and it turned out the craziest trip of the year. Back in 2012, I have been to Goa with my friends and guys trust me, it was just like a normal leisure Goa trip, but in backpacking I experienced Goa never like before, in crazier and wicked ways. Though Goa is the smallest state of India, but it has become the most popular destination among the tourists and bachelors. Interesting fact is that every bachelor in India at least once wants to go Goa and just to experience the nightlife. Goa defines the ultimate freedom and leisure. I love that feeling to sit next to the beach with a glass of red wine and do nothing but feel the passing time, see the people and wait for the sun to go down. So here we go, if you are looking for some adventure, then try Goa in backpacking …

Puducherry (Pondicherry) You Must Visit At Least Once

Puducherry (Pondicherry) or Pondy is one of the seven union territories of India. The place was in our rough plan when I was in Chennai along with my few friends for one wedding function.  After the wedding function, we had one whole day extra for our leisure time. We decide to go for a day trip to Pondicherry.  We booked a personal car for a day and the next morning we started our journey towards Pondicherry. Pondicherry is around 150 kilometers from Chennai via East Coast Road (ECR).  I was super excited since ECR journey is considered as the one of the best road journeys of India. We were mostly driving through the coastal areas and indeed, it was an amazing road journey though the climate was bit humid and hot. Pondicherry Beach was the first stop where we stopped.  It offers beautiful seafront.  There is a huge statue of Gandhi Ji at one on the entrances along with long promenade for walking. Frankly, summer is not so good to visit Pondicherry. Initially, we got …

Le Pondy – A Day Spent in a Leisure Resort, Pondicherry/ Puducherry

Le Pondy  I was in Pondicherry recently and I had a wonderful leisure time at Le Pondy resort. It was a beautiful morning, when we started our journey from Chennai to Pondicherry on East Coast Road (ECR). Around 12 pm, we reached in Pondicherry. We were wandering on the roads of Pondicherry in a search of any good hotel or resort. We all were so hungry due to journey. Accidentally, we saw a direction board of Le Pondy resort and we decided to go ahead with it. (I am so thankful to that direction board) Today, I am sharing experience of my day spent at Le Pondy luxury resort. Well, I would not lie if I say Le Pondy is the best resort I have ever been to until now. Entrance As I entered in Le Pondy, first thing I saw was a circular area with a beautiful dome structure in the center. At the reception, I got a big smile from a foreigner relaxing around the reception area. The resort was calm, clean and green. As …
