My tips to people who want to move here are

If you are moving here, expect a 360-degree change in way of living. Best is to leave the city life and its way behind.

Life in Goa to me is all about

Engaging in local way of living and customs. Also, choosing the path of sustainability and purpose led life, with inclusivity.
