Prologue: Goa is magic in monsoons

Rains in Goa is really something that I anticipate. All through the winter we party and have a great time at the shoreline, however by April I’m prepared for the sightseers to clear out. At that point, May moves around, and it’s so hot, you would prefer not to venture outside. You begin to trust storm season comes early. Before the month’s over, the rain at last hits! Despite the fact that it never chills things off as much as you think it will!.
