Morjim { GOA }

Its been a while since I’ve been back from my 20 day long road trip. I have finally managed to sort out the pics and find time to do a post on it. This is the second of the series. The first one was a compilation of my favourite instagram pics from the road trip. You can view that HERE.
Following are the places we stayed at during the course of the road trip over 20 days.
Road Trip: –> Delhi –> Mumbai –> Morjim (GOA) –> Agonda (GOA) –> Gokarna –> Hampi –> Aurangabad –> MHOW –> Nasirabad –> Delhi

Morjim is located in North Goa, just south of Ashwem Beach. It has its own gorgeous quiet Morjim Beach and lots of lovely places to eat at close by. A bike ride to Vagator takes about 15-20 minutes. At Morjim we stayed at Wanderers Hostel run by Ben. He has literally turned his own house into lodging options and has permanent tents pitched in his garden as another option. We stayed in the tents which cost us ₹ 4000/- for a 3 nights stay. Ample parking for bikes and cars (we were in a car obviously). The place has a very laid back vibe with a huge table outside for everyone to sit on and mingle, play cards, etc. The tents are non-ac (you don’t really need it) but there are ac rooms inside the house.

The tents were extremely comfortable, with a cemented washroom, a cupboard you can lock and clean interiors and bedding. The place is a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute drive to the Morjim Beach and you can spend endless hours on that beach. A few good shacks with their own sunbeds costing a mere ₹ 100/- for as long as you’d like. *BLISS*

You must also visit Om Made Café (Goa & Bangalore) in Anjuna best known for its organic food and fabulous breakfast. Had our cleansing all natural and fresh juice and a fabulous bruschetta there one day. Its sea facing although the sea beneath is quite rocky. Your best bet would be to spend a very lazy morning sitting looking onto the sea hungover or not.

There is only one place where you can procure ice near Morjim. That’s at the fish market just after crossing the Siolim bridge when you are going towards Anjuna from Morjim. I know the route by heart now because we went there everyday to get ice for our ice box packed with Kings Beer native to Goa.
Other nearby places to eat at are La Plage and Bardo although Bardo was highly disappointing. It was like a little Delhi…exactly what I wanted to escape from when in Goa. La Plage had mind blowing food, perfect for a sun-downer.
More to follow in the coming posts. We were just so thrilled to finally be in Goa that we didn’t bother even taking the camera out for the first couple of days. All these are pics from the cell-phone. Better pictures in the coming posts. Promise!

    Such a great trip, I am not a frequent traveler because of office works etc. etc., but I love to visit these kind of places.

    I do not even understand how I ended up right here, but I assumed this submit was good.
    I don’t understand who you are but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in the event you are not already.
    Cheers!
