Where I stayed
We enjoyed our time on the beach. The girls were all tempted as some point by the looky looky men into buying a variety of items of tat. I was strict with myself, I didn't need a massage, pedicure, manicure, sarong, elephant carving, beaded necklace (shoot me if I come home with one). Still I'm glad that the girls did their bit to keep the local economy going. I restricted my spending to food!
On our first night out in Goa the bar shut abruptly at 11 and Ruby announced that due to state elections everything must close early- GREAT!! I was not best pleased about the situation as I was really looking forward to a proper night out. Thankfully there was a backup plan and the following night we get invited by the owner of one of the bars in town to go to his farmhouse for a private party. I was in two minds about whether to go and in the end decide that I might as well- afterall, I'd never get the opportunity again.
In the end I definitely made the right decision- we had a great time. Everyone decided to take a late night swim, then we found the hot tubs and chocolate! A really funny night to cap off a really memorable trip, with great people. I was already feeling sad about saying goodbye to everyone in the morning, but at least most people were hanging around for a couple of days longer.
The following day we said goodbye to Ruby at breakfast and went off to our next hotel. Kate had found a place that we could all stay in. 8 girls in one apartment, it had the potential for disaster but in the end it worked out really well, and as it was only £7 I definitely couldn't grumble!! We had a final meal at Cafe del Mar and one last group picture (x15) then the next day, most people headed to South Goa to see Palolem. I stayed in North Goa with Stine and Marte as it wasn't worth switching locations for a day. I was sad to say goodbye to everyone but I also felt that I had had enough of Goa. I was also really looking forward to seeing Triney in a couple of days in Sri Lanka!! Woooooo hoooo!!
