So this is an interesting story by a solo traveler....on his solo trip to GOA... Since it was my first time to Goa, I wasn't sure about how memorable would it be. But to my surprise this experience turned out to be one of the bests I have had so far. Hands down the credit goes to "Caravela Beach Resorts"...
