We landed in Goa around 5 pm. The airport is in the city of Vasco Da Gama, and we were staying at a service apartment somewhere near Calangute Beach. Since we had just landed we decided to take it easy, and go to the beach to watch the sunset.
After the sun had set we decided to explore the area and walked through this street filled with shops that sold clothes and more touristy things. I was trying to look for a place to eat on Zomato which led me to Google Maps, which turn led me into finding a night park near by. When we asked the taxi driver to take us there, he told us about a bigger night market in Arpora. So there we were sitting in the taxi ready to explore more of Goa.

After a relaxing read on the balcony and good nights sleep, next day was filled with us traversing through the popular tourist spots.

The Basilica of Bom Jesus:
This is one of the oldest churches in Goa and in India. You can read more about it in the picture below. This church definitely resembles a European church, with the intricate facade. The interior is quite simple compared to the churches in Europe, but it is still beautiful.

It was almost time for lunch by the time we finished admiring this church, so we decided to visit the Spice Plantation. It is a lovely place that tells us more about the spices that are grown in India, and I honestly found it very fascinating.

The Church Of Our Lady Of Immaculate Conception:
I am a complete Bollywood buff, especially when it comes to the rom-coms of the industry. Of course, I had to go look for the places our Bollywood movies were shot, so we decided to rent a car and go road tripping throughout Goa looking for the places.
Before we started our journey, my mum and decided to go to this designer store called ‘The Flame Store’.
Unfortunately, we didn’t find that many places, but it was still a lot of fun. We had lunch at a cafe called ‘The Black Sheep Bistro’, and the food there was amazing!
After lunch we were off to The Chapora Fort which is the iconic fort featured in the Bollywood movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai.’ The view from this fort was absolutely breathtaking.
After the sunset we went to the Vagator Beach, where we managed to get some really cool long exposure pictures.
For dinner we went to this gorgeous restaurant inspired by Greece, called Thalassa. I absolutely loved the vibe and atmosphere of this place. It had a great playlist playing in the background and the food was really good too. It is a definitely you must go to.
