At 6.15am in Mumbai, we are still groggy and choose not to push him off the bed every day, so he gets some cuddle time every morning. On … Continue reading are we sleep deprived in goa?
Day 3 – driving to Goa! (Day 1 and 2 were spent at Pune) A and I have always wanted to do a long one month driving trip around India.
