Palolem, Goa in India.

Photos from Palolem Beach in Goa, India.

And then, after two months of traveling around India, we finally made it to Goa: Palolem, Goa.
Palolem Beach was a nice beach, calm and somewhat quiet. Quiet for India, at least.
It was the off-season in Goa, though.
And so, many of the beach-front hotels had shut their doors.
Many of the shops and restaurants were closing up.
The parties were over. The nightlife was dead. The tourists were gone.
It was nice all the same but if we were looking for things to do in Palolem, the only answer was go to the beach. Sit around. Pet some cows.
But it was a new side of India, a fresh side of India, a different side of India, than what I’d experienced over the past two months of travel.
And it was a welcome change.

One day I was sitting at a cafe using wi-fi and I got a tweet from Stu and Eloise that said “Look behind u!” … It just so happened that they were in the same cafe in the same town and recognized me. It is a small world after all!

    That looks a little more peaceful than the places you’ve been in lately! 🙂

    Lovely photos! I was also in Goa during monsoon season and it was very chilled out. There were still a few people hanging out in the bars, but the summer parties had died down. It makes me want to revisit!
