So, when travelling down to south,
To the long stretches of unspoilt sand, and a place that has a unique mixture of sun, sand and spices, A place that has intertwined the Portuguese and the Indian culture in the most astounding way.
A state that is the party capital of India,
When in Goa, it is a must ‘to SHOP’
‘Cause Goa has it all, from junk jewellery to gothic accessories,
From hippie clothing to formal clothes.
Goa has a lot to offer:
