‘off-beat’ travel is increasingly tough to come by. leh-ladakh used to be off-beat, now its supposedly too touristy! with the internet bringing places far away and travels of unknown people right into your house, there is not much the avid traveler has not heard about or been to!
so how does one make travel new? to see something virgin…
how about going to a city, known for its beaches and sun and lazy moments IN THE RAINS
or to eat at a VEGETARIAN restaurant that does not serve alcohol in a city known for its non-veg, talli (drunk) locals?
well, i am off to do precisely that.
5 days in the rainy, drenched goa with everything but the beach…
one meal at a vegetarian restaurant which does NOT serve alcohol
another at a lovely homestay owned by a brother and sister
and some visits to the unseen parts of goa, non-beach… i have made a list…
and then i will be back.. with more stories and more tales to spin!
and yes, i agree, goa in the rains might not ‘virgin’ enough, but it works for now. till then, tell me how you travel ‘off-beat’ without having to go to a far-flung town?
