Second Goa Trip: The drive, the beaches (Baga, Ozran) and some more

Date: March, 2008

Yes, 2005 🙂 I’m going all the way back in my travel archives! This was the first time I went to Goa, one of the most popular (and much hyped) tourist spots in India. It was group of two cars, all of whom were my friends and co-workers at the time.
