When I googled “Things To Do In Panjim” I couldn’t find much… So we took it upon ourselves to spend a couple of days exploring and make our very own list: 1. Casino Boat This was actually one of the things I found on google. Panjim is well known for its casino boats and so it felt wrong not to jump on board for an evening. Goa is one of the few states in India that allow gambling and by law onshore casinos can only operate electronic machines. A loophole for this law gave birth to the infamous casino boats!…

We are nearly a month into our trip. We’ve had work days, gym days, beach days, lazy days and nothing days. We’ve spent days by ourselves and spent days with new friends, several new friends.

  We have been in Arambol a week now. We are finally getting into the flow of being free, wandering with not much of a plan. Our days consist mainly of: Exercise Breakfast Beach Lunch Wash Dinner Evening Activities Bed Then more or less we repeat the process, making sure always to try finding new places, explore new streets and try hard not to get into a “same old routine” kinda vibe like we would back at home. – It’s so easy to just get used to living the same day every day, going into autopilot, waiting for the weekend…
