Hi friends,2014 diwali vacation, we have spend our time in goa & konkan area. This time we spend more time in north-east goa. We explored two wild life sencturies(bahagvan mahavir & netravali ), done jungle trecking , explored two waterfalls dudhsagar & savari water falls. we were lucky to get hospitality of Ashok Malkarnekar( Dudhsagar Plantation and Farmstay), because of him we were able to explore more in these jungles. On goanese beach, we enjoyed candle light beach dinner at baga beach & anjuna flea market. But amazing beach is devbaug island at konkan area in south maharashtra. I would like to call it as “Mini phuket”. Its unique place where kali river & sea meet & its called “sagar sangam”. one side white sandy beach(non poluted ) & other side back water rides(in kali river).All water sports including scuba diving can be done here.we like scuba & kayaking. Goa is very common destination for every indian, even i have been here for 7 times. But this time what we have explored it’s really amazing. It reminds me steve jobe’s word “stay hungry stay foolish”
Disclosure : Many friends congratulate me for good photography but its real credit goes to my wife Purvi banker, she has taken most of photographs , i just put words within it. This was my crazy travel plan, to explore unknown roads with help of google “siri” & almost 2700 km self driving.Thanks to my family to support my crazy ideas.
