It was the 6th day of our Indian odyssey when we left Goa and took a domestic flight going to Mumbai. Mumbai that is previously known as Bombay is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most populous city in India and the biggest metropolis in the country. It is said that the city is the dream city for many Indians. It is full of life that has many beautiful places which tourist may be interested of. The city is well known for different tourist spots, commercial places and government bodies.

One reason that decided me to visit Goa is to actually see the marvellous Dudhsagar Falls but unfortunately that didn't happen because we were troubled with time. Going to the falls from the city capital takes about 3 hours or more. If we couldn't be able to get back to the city before dark, we might miss our early flight the next day.
Well, the thought of not pushing through with our original plan didn't saddened me since we had instead spent that intended time by exploring the heritage site of Old Goa.

India is not just all about temples, culture and heritage. This country also takes pride about their serene nature and beautiful beaches. One of the places in India that we were able to visit which has a numerous nice beaches to boast about is Goa.
Goa, with Panaji as the state's capital, is located in West India. It is renowned for its world heritage architecture, places of worship and its beaches. The state is divided into two districts: North Goa and South Goa. Although, both districts seem to have equally nice beach sites, we have decided to visit the beaches in the northern part where the most popular destinations are situated.

Why India? I don't really have the exact words to explain it but I really wanted to go to India. I don't know what triggered me to like this place; maybe its the culture, maybe the famous sites, or maybe just to brag about that I've been to this place; but whatever reason or reasons it may be, it just hit me. I wanted to go to this country.
It was more than a year ago when it passed through my mind that India has to be my next out of the country destination. I was able to find few people that I can be with during the trip but it was only Paula who remained determined till the end. You know, it's really frustrating when people shows disapproval of your interests; why don't we just respect each other's businesses. I was supposed to be with another friend but due to maddening stories about India, her colleagues show disapproval about the trip making her to decide not to push through with the trip anymore. Oh well, I did everything I could to make her change her mind but it's her hesitation that still prevailed.
