    May Month, wife and myself plans to go for a tour as last family holiday taken in durga puja time.. so what venue should we chose?? discussion goes on.. and a lot of local, and outside venues come in to mind.. suddenly i suggest why not GOA.. Wife said Goa in Monsoon and with Kids.. I say, yep Goa is not a remote area, well known tourist place and in monsoon also we can see the beauty of goa with less price.. So Finally Destination Set Goa..Then what date?? i chose end of August as usually in Goa rain start from June and last up to September, but less rain in end of August to September...Now how many days we will stay.. as my works do not allow me to take many days leave, i will say 7 days highest i can take leave. so total tour will be included to and fro, 10 days.. .i planned to stay in Goa for 4 days and 3 days in Mumbai and 3 days will be in train to and fro....I reserved train tickets, as no direct train from Rourkela to Goa, i have to make break journey at Mumbai.

    I booked a homestay from airbnb for 4 nights, cost me Rs.4600...named Madeira Manson, infront of Fortune Across Regina Hotel..Homestay is Nice, big rooms, good for both family and bachelors..

    If any one want to Contact , here is contact no:

    sabby: 9823846508

    Then i booked a Hotel in Mumbai through Oyo Rooms, Hotel name is Hotel Garden Park, Kurla.. cost me Rs.4800.00for 3 days..

    So Train and hotel booked.. now waiting for 25th August, as our journey will be start...

    25th August 2017:

    Journey started as we boarded our train Hatia-Kurla Super Fast Express at 1.30 pm at Rourkela. Train is late by 1 hour , right time is 12.30pm. We have taken lunch and dinner with us, as i always try to avoid pantry car foodings.

    Everything goes smoothly and we reached Kurla Station at 2.30pm on 26th August 2017. From here we have to board another train Kurla -Kochuveli Super Fast Express. Train time was 4.55pm. We took lunch in a near by restaurant and board the train at right time, Rain continues when we leave kurla station by train. On next morning, 7.30am i.e 27th August 2017, train reached margao station , already late by 3 hours.. We booked a cab , taken Rs.900, to our homestay at Candolim. We reached our homestay at 8.30am. We get refreshed, i bring the breakfast from near restaurant. After breakfast, we move to visit Candolim Beach and Sinquerium Beach, which near to our homestay. I actually thought that, beach road will be empty and no shop will be open their. but i surprised to see that shops and restaurants are open near to candolim beach. We spend quite time their and then decide to go for lunch, suddenly heavy rain started and we ran to a closed shack and stay their, after 10 mins rain stopped and bright sunlight on us. We took lunch at Sher e Punjab Hotel near to Candolim and Sinquerium Beach.
