Goa: Seven Secret Sacred Spots!

        This blog post is dedicated to my friend Chandrakant Shinde (Chandu). Chandu, you are the one who inspired me, not once, but twice, to take the off-beat path when it comes to the beautiful state of Goa!

       Being a resident of Goa, Chandu would often say during our University days, "Whenever people think of Goa, all they can imagine is beaches, babes, and booze. But my Goa is much more than that! We are blessed with nature's bounty! We have dense forests hosting a huge biodiversity, serene villages, a rich history, temples, churches, winding roads leading to nowhere...come explore that once and you will never feel like going to the rowdier parts of Goa."

       And explore, we did! I'm sure the list below is going to be on the top of your bucketlist for your next Goa trip!

       So here we go!

1. Nature's Nest, Tambdi Surla
