Goa the place to Go..

#goa #beaches

Goa is divided into two parts geographically. One South Goa and another North Goa. If you are looking at a peaceful weekend or holiday with your family then South Goa is the place to go, and if you are looking at real fun, games and some exciting moments with your friends then North Goa is the place to go

We reached Goa in Sep 30 2019, this time we were a gang of 10 people, due to lack of flight tickets availability we arrive here in 3 different flights. By 10.30 PM on Sep 30 is when we all assemble at Hotel Sodder's Renton Manor at Calangute - Anjuna Road

This is a decent hotel with a swimming pool in the middle, usually people with large teams come to stay here. Though mid sized rooms and not so fancy you have a hell of lot of rooms available in cluster here
