On the way, we had a look at the Calangute beach too, had tea/coffee from there and then proceeded towards Panaji. We had our share of missing the routes during return also.We went down correctly to the Baga beach this time and occupied one of the sea side tables. The atmosphere was worth spending couple of hours and we did exactly that. The dance floor was small, nevertheless had a nice cosmopolitan crowd from different parts of the world.Tumakuru - Bengaluru GQ section was already completed and we covered it in a jiffy to reach the city limits.At Old Goa we also got into one of the famous cathedrals in Goa, called'Se Cathedral'.


It had some impressive paintings and art works inside. Being the largest church in Old Goa, this church is built in 16th century. The building style is Portuguese - Gothic with a Tuscan exterior and Corinthian interior.The famous Dudhsagar water falls is located near Mollem. At Mollem we had another mess taking a wrong road and it ensured that we had further delay. Finally we reached the ghats, some beauitful views, Karnataka border and Londa.Two of the famous beaches, Anjuna and Vagator, along with the Chapora fort was our next target. These places are nearby the Mapusa town. We first hit the Anjuna beach, which is somewhat rocky. One has to get down a bit for the beaches. Anjuna is famous for its wednesday flea markets. Some small shops were open there, even when we went. We picked up some shells, bracelets and some other stuff, had breakfast there and proceeded to the Chapora fort.


The beach was indeed beautiful with blue water and golden sand and a far view of the Devbagh island. But trapped inside a park and with people littering the'park' it wasnt the same place that Tagore has written about."The sea beach of Karwar is certainly a fit place in which to realise that the beauty of Nature is not a mirage of the imagination, but reflects the joy of the Infinite and thus draws us to lose ourselves in it".Jogfalls was a small spectre of what it used to be during monsoon. Couple of photos and a feast of pineapples we were heading down the ghat roads towards Honnavar. I was travelling down this ghat road for the 4th time, yet it looked beautiful. We stopped at the Sharavathi river valley view point and had a look at the beautiful valley had another couple of stops near the streams.This place is very commercialized with a lots of buildings coming up, one of them even obstructing the Siva statue. The beach is dirty and not so tempting to get down. more details log on joy-travels.com
