Late last month I visited a side of Goa I don't normally see (North Goa) with Goa Tourism to experience the festival of Sao Joao.
On the day itself we went for a boat cruise aboard the Santa Monica, then took part in the celebrations at Campal & finally we witnessed the boat parade at Siolim.
We were put up at Miramar Residency, which is so beautifully lush (the restaurant could be better, although they have a phenomenal breakfast buffet). I bunked with Diipti, a passionate traveller & the blogger behind Travel Diaries. All in all a fun way to spend three days! I made a video of the trip which you can find above, so do watch it & let me know what you think - I'm still new to making videos so any feedback would be appreciated.
