  • Thailand: BangkokI'm sure you'll be enthralled to hear that our journey from India to Thailand was full of interesting if not mildly distressing goings-on. Our first flight was from Goa to Mumbai, and as we waited in the queue for our Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 17, 2016

  • India: North Goa - CalanguteUnderstandably, the 3am flight from Mumbai to Goa made us pretty damn tired. Delirious in fact.
