FOOD IN GOA

After 2 weeks of eating hot Indian food for every meal, I was curried-out.

So I was thrilled to find that Goa definitely caters to the vegetarian-eating-yoga-practicing-hippie-crowd and was filled with great restaurants that served smoothies, acai bowls, tofu dishes, buddha bowls and the like.

These were my favorites:

  1. Ma Cafe in Pernem - EXCELLENT vegan food, we went back 3 times for the banh mi and the tacos

  2. Bean Me Up in Vagator Beach - delicious buddha bowls in a beautiful garden setting

  3. Natti’s Naturals in Anjuna - good smoothies, killer patio

GOA, INDIA

After Jaipur, we headed to Goa for the last leg of our trip.

After the luxurious celebration which was the wedding in Mumbai, and the adventurous motorcycle trip through Rajasthan, Goa felt like a tropical work-cation.

We’d wake up early every morning to work from our hotel in Calangute Beach then around 1 PM we’d hop on our bright orange scooter and head north to explore a new area on the coast until the sun set.

There are dozens of beaches all up the coast but my favorites were Vagator, Arambol, Morjim and Querim.
