Sunday 5th April 2009, Goa, India

We got off the train in Ahmedabad at 4.30am after a lovely 8 hour journey from Udaipur! We had to find a taxi to the airport which didn't take long as sooo many people want to take you. Once we got to the airport we had an 7 1/2 hour wait for the plane to Goa!! We didn't do much as the airport was so small, we tried to sleep in uncomfy seats, did some people watching, ate some samosas...
Finally we were allowed to go through and wait for the bus to take us to the plane. The plane was pretty empty and the flight was quite short. We got off the plane in Goa after nearly 24 hours of travelling, where the temperature was a cool 36 degrees! We had already arranged an airport transfer to our beach hut, so the taxi driver was ready and waiting for us, the drive was only about an hour.

Once we arrived at Palolem Beach in the South, we headed straight for the sea! The Beach is meant to be the nicest in Goa and as it's not high season it wasn't very busy which was nice. The next 3 days were pretty much spent sunbathing! The sea was super warm, like a bath! Couldn't quite believe it! We had breakfast lunch and dinner right on the beach. The first night i wasn't feeling very well, but Sara had a Goan Fish Curry which was very tasty!
