The beach days continue! Walking around barefoot, drinking pineapple juice, mustering just enough energy for top knots, and sitting under colorful umbrellas- that's what this week was all about. That and becoming violently ill off of God knows what. Seriously, dysentary ain't no joke haha.

  3. Lovely pictures- it makes me want to go back right now! Side note: a local warned us against drinking soda from a bottle and said that merchants fill the bottles with their own 'soda' and put a cap on. But, if you listened to every warning about food in India you would have no fun- and probably still get sick. I can't wait to see your Mumbai pictures- it was one of our favorite stops.

  4. I never really thought of India having beaches & palm trees??!? Wow...how beautiful it is in Goa! That picture of train station threw me for a loop though! Wow!

  5. I'm so unbelievably jealous that you've just got back from India! I LOVE INDIA! I've been there twice and can't wait to go back.

    Although I've never been to Goa, you're posts bring back so many memories of my trips! I just kept saying to myself, "that's so India", haha.

    I too have experienced Indian trains - we did a 30-odd hour sleeper class train from Chennai to Agra, slightly crazy but when it only costs £5!

    Can't wait to hear more x

  18. Oh no! I'm sorry you got ill while you were there. Everyone of my friends who have visited India have gotten some kind of nasty thing or another, I suppose it comes with the territory. The rest sounds lovely though! I love to see photos from another culture-I feel as though I'm so sheltered, so this is interesting!

  19. These photos look like paradise! Sorry to hear about the dysentery, but at least the rest of your time looks like it was fun! Especially the dinner on the beach!
    Can't wait to read more about your adventure!

  32. All your photos are just beautiful, oh how I want to go back to India. I love hearing about other people's experiences of India as well, it is lovely to reminisce looking at other people's photos and reading their stories. I was there for three weeks and was in Dehli, Dehradun, Mussoorie, a tiny mountain villiage called Donk (with literally three houses and a nursery school) and Agra. India is such an incredible place, I really want to go back and explore some places I didn't get to go to, Goa looks gorgeous. I somehow managed to avoid getting sick, and being someone who probably has no immune system judging by the amount I am sick, that was obviously pretty lucky.

  39. Oh my God, this train station looks insane! I thought it was a kind of tourist camp in a school gym or something haha :)
    The photos are beautiful, I could use a dose of Indian sun and a sandy beach right now.

  42. thank you so much for sharing these! your photos are amazing. I've toyed with the idea of travelling to India for the longest time, everyone seems to get sick at some point when they go - hope it didn't wipe you out too much. Goa looks so relaxed!

  50. I've just remembered your music recomendation from my post about the local natives. I was watching the coachella livestream and there they were! Quite a good band!!!! <3

  51. are the people in the train station homeless or just waiting for their next bus? the beach looks gorgeous & your little dinner perfect! but not the dysentery, although you did make me laugh saying "haha" after.
