Hey all. Finally i am going to my dream destination i.e.Goa (in India).It was really my ardent desire to visit Goa as it is a very famous tourist spot and people all over the globe visit this place.It has charm of its own.The majestic buildings,beaches,restaurants all attract tourists from far and wide. I wanted to go there for my honeymoon but just could not go.But now i am going with my staff for 5 days and i am very excited..Well my hubby is also going along,so it will be real fun. Have you ever been to Goa? Do you have any plans in your mind to visit a particular place of your choice? Waiting for interesting responses. Bye all and wish me happy journey.

Ya.It was fun visiting the place.We visited many beaches there and had a great time.It was off season.so there was no rush or crowd of people.It is the monsoon time and after rain the weather becomes very pleasant,otherwise it was humid there.

Hi, I've heard so much about Goa and it seems an interesting place to visit. A business trip is just as good as a pleasure trip, you still get to see the place, and it's even more exciting because you'll share a great time with workmates and hubby. One place I dream of visiting is Egypt. I want to see the pyramids and the artifacts and experience how it feels to be in a place that was once a part of a great civilization.

Yes Goa is the favorite hot spot for tourists from all over the world.It was a wonderful experience to visit Goa.The old monuments and artifacts inspire you and have charisma of their own.I have had a good time there. I wish your dream of visiting Egypt turns into reality as soon as possible and i hope you will share your experience too.

Congratulations to you for getting to finally visit your dream vacation spot of Goa, India. It is really nice that you will be able to bring your husband along even thought it is a company trip. That is wonderful! For some reason, I have this huge desire to visit Seattle, Washington here in the U.S.A. I am not sure if it is because it is the farthest spot in the U.S. that I can travel, or if it is because of some of the different things that I have seen on the travel channel. Either way, one of these days, I am sure I will be able to venture there. I hope you have a wonderful trip!

Hello! I wish you the best on your trip and make sure to let us know how it went. I am not going to go anywhere this year but I would love to visit somewhere tropical like Hawaii, or Aruba. I am in desperate need of a vacation and I hope to go on vacation in the near future. I am glad you are going to Goa since it seems like you've been wanting to go there for quite some time. Have a great vacation! :)

Ya it was a dream come true.I did not pay even a single penny for my trip as the whole trip was organized and arranged by the company in which i am working. I hope you get a chance too to visit your dream destination.

I hope that you will have a wonderful time in Goa. I have always wanted to visit India. It was a shame you didn't have your honeymoon there but a work trip there should be fine. It is lovely that your husband is going along. You might be able to take some photos of the gorgeous looking palm fringed beaches. I wish you a pleasant journey and that you will come home with many happy memories. This year I took my toddler son to Cape Town and the Garden Route in South Africa. Now I am saving up for us to go to Canada.

No i never been to Goa before. My hubby told me that there are many beautiful places in India. And one of his friends said that if my hubby wants to visit India his friends will be his tourist guide he was from India .. so maybe one day we will be going to India and visit Goa. Anyway, if there is a place i want to visit aside from India that would be Europe never been in the place also. But i heard there are many beautiful places to visit in Europe so maybe if i have a chance and have the opportunity i will do so. Keep on posting good discussion and happy mylotting

Oh you are so lucky! Goa is one of the most beautiful and special places of India. In most places all over India, we see a dominance of Hindu or Muslim presence…its only in places like Goa and some other southern states that we see beautiful examples of Christian presence and it’s a wonderful change. Goa also is famous for its beaches and the a favourite hangout of foreigners…in fact its quite different from the rest of India. I have visited Goa but that was long back and I don’t remember exactly the details. All I remember is the lovely Donna Paula area…I am sure you will be seeing it too!

Yes Goa is a fantastic place to visit.I have enjoyed thoroughly over there.All my tensions,boredom and lethargy vanished into thin air as i stepped into this magnificent land. People here are very friendly and very supportive in nature.They lead a very relaxed life in the midst of nature.I visited beaches and churches and everything has its own charm to hold on to.I have taken a night boat safari and it was a pleasant experience.We went for shopping too and bought cashew nuts and banana chips for friends and family. The most exciting thing which i saw was the bungalow or should i say the castle of Vijay Mallaya.There were around 80 cars parked and all were imported.The motor bikes were as big as SUV's. The hotel where we stayed provided us authentic goan delicacies to relish and the food was very good.
