Lillian MacLennan’s Holiday In Goa

I was in Goa last…

From December 26, 2018 to January 5th, 2019.

I stayed at…

Several locations during our stay. The main place was an apartment in Panjim. We also stayed over-night in Wildernest and at a beach shack in near Palolem.

I came with…

My husband and I traveled with our friends. One of our friends is from Goa.

I chose to holiday in Goa because…

Our Goan friend spoke highly of her place of origin and we jumped at the opportunity to vacation with her as she visited family for the holidays.

For us Goa is…

An incredible place, with a warm culture and amazing food.

Goa turned out to be…

Different than expected but in a good way.

One dish I couldn’t stop devouring…

Beef Croquettes and Choris Pav.

A typical tourist thing I did…

We went to Fort Terekhol. The grounds and the view were spectacular.

My favourite place to eat at was…

Purple Martini where the food was just incredible.

My favourite beach was…

They were all very nice. We had a lot of fun in Benaulim Beach.

The most breathtaking location I visited was…

Wildernest! It is really beautiful. The views from the mountains into the valley just take your breath away.

The funniest thing I experienced…

My husband negotiating in Arpora market for me. He was not comfortable with it at first, eventually he came around to it and was able to get a good deal. After his first successful negotiation he wanted to do it some more.

What souvenir did you take from here?

We bought linens and lots of spices. One can never have enough spices.
