Arambol city, Welcome in Goa

After few days in Calangute we decided to moved in the North of Goa, first we stopped in a place call Morjim (little Moscow), full of Russian peoples and really expensive, after some hours spend to find a descent accommodation, we decided to take back a cab and try an other city. After few hours of road we find a really nice place call Arambol. Here compare to the other place there is more foreigners than Indian and most of the people who work in guesthouses and restaurants are mostly from Nepal.



After all those places we visited, I was quite tired so I just toke the first available room I saw. I’m in OM Star Guesthouse, owned by Nepalese’s guy, a bit noisy and the bed is really hard but the staff are nice and the food not so bad. It’s seem to be an Israelite place here. I steel have this computer to repair and steel thinking to buy a new Iphone after lost my last one in Nepal. I don’t feel really good here with all those stuff in my mind, I need to resolved them as soon as possible.


So the first thing I did was to find a place were I can repair my Laptop and change my battery, after few visits in the Samsung customer center in Panjim and one week of waiting I finally repair it !!! I feel much beter without this Laptop problem, now I can enjoy my days here with a working computer and a good battery.




Goa … Here we are Tire la langue, you can cross lot of Hippies peoples and groups doing yoga or meditation on the beach. Every days during the sunset there is a drum session in the middle of the beach with lot of people dancing and having fun. Arambol is a chill out place, if you need to rest after a really long trip around Asia and particularly in India come in there you will find all the peace and the rest you need.


Moso and I did a Yoga course during one week at the Ayanga Yoga Hymalaya center, a bit quiet and slow compare to the Yoga I learned in Vietnam with Fredo (Ashtanga) but really good for the mind, this session help me to rest myself and forget all the little problems I have in my mind. Before starting the Yoga course I changed guesthouse and go to the Laughing Buda Guesthouse, I had a really good Hut with a beautiful view of the sea and a sunny balcony between 4 and 5pm, ideal to finish a hard lazy day on the beach Clignement d'œil. The food here is really nice and cheap also so all of our lunch and dinner was taken here. After few days every guest was speaking to each other, playing chest, guitar, it was like home. I meet an Indian couple, Ravi and Sri, I want to thanks them for all they did, I spend really nice moments with them, I will never forget !


In total we spend three weeks in Goa, it’s time to move on and see more about India. Here I meet lot of people and everybody gonna take different ways after Goa. Also Moso was not really ready to move and a bit disturb by a Polish girl so I decide to move on without him and take back the road on my own, well not really because as I meet a group of Israel, we decide with Tom to move to Hampi together.

Bye bye Moso, the two past months was crazy, I loved traveling throw Nepal and India with you, have a good trip and I wish you lot of good things for your next months of travel, maybe we will see us again, we never know … it’s a small world Clignement d'œil.

Welcome India and Happy new year !

We leave Pokhara on the 25th of December and I spend with Moso one more night in Kathmandu before flying to India. That day was really hard due to the travel in the bus, the fact we woke up early and need to do the bag in a hurry and also the party of the previous day, we spend the all day in Kathmandu to clean the bag, do some research for the next destination and trying to remember what’s appended last night.

We were supposed to be in Mumbai at 1pm but our first flight was late and in Delhi the connection between the other flight was too short so after a long fight between Air India and a stupid police man we finally toke an other flight with a connection and arrived in Mumbai.

The deal was to be in Goa for the 1rst of January and celebrate it on the beach. One night only in Mumbai in Colaba quarter in the Red Salvation Army Hotel were I spend a wonderful night in a ten beds dorm between the foot of my neighbour and the smelly dirty toilet …

Colaba is one of the tourist place’s of Mumbai, it’s were the terrorist attacks append few years ago. Muslims quarter, there is not some much to see, lot of shop’s, banks, hotel and a view on the arbour. For our first day of India compare to Nepal, Indian people are not nice at all and a bit rude. Also there are everywhere, no free space even by night, they sleep everywhere …, that’s India !

We didn’t really sleep the last day in Mumbai because we needed to be at the airport at 3:30 am. To go to Goa from Mumbai it’s straight, just one hour flight so we arrived in Goa Airport at 7:00 am and take a taxi to go first to Anjuna. After a long drive we arrived there but it was definitely not what we were excepting so we decide to move to Calangute near Baga where there is all the party on the beach and night’s clubs. We didn’t know that this area was also the appointment of all Indian people’s for holidays, there are hundred and hundred of them on the beach, looking foreigners girl and trying to get a photo with them … Crazy people …

New Year eve


We are in Goa !! We’ve made it ! The city side is really dirty, lot of dust everywhere and the quality of the air is really bad. We found a Hotel between that main road and the beach. Here the beach’s are really long and wide with lot of coconut’s threes. Talking about coconut’s three, it’s really dangerous one felt down in front of me when I was walking back to the hotel. Coconut’s kills are the biggest reasons for accidents in Indian more than car accidents


Thousand’s of Indian people, nice savages fireworks in all the beach maybe 10km of light for one hour. Savages mean casualty also, we saw a group of people who received a firework and also the next day we heard about some dead Indian people due to alcohol and drugs. We were on the beach living all this huge activity from a Russian party, I can tell you it was really funny to see that. Nice night but completely different than Christmas.
