Photo Essay: Is Goa over its hype?

Just a sidenote: traveling and uploading pictures for my blog isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Sifting through the barrage of photos, resizing and uploading/linking can be a bit of a time consuming trick. Needless to say, I’m finding photos I’m looking for… after I post.

In my last post I touched briefly on the beaches in Goa and their um… tourist mania. As I explained, Baga Beach (& Calangute, it’s sister beach) can be a bit of a water sport carnival. Here are a few more pictures which may make you wonder- Is this still India?

Indian Baywatch, maybe?

… and some watersports I didn’t know existed.

Finally, after some seeking…

Aaah, India… there you are!

    That raft behind the speedboat is called a “banana boat”. They are amazing fun 🙂

  2. Hahaha! The perfect sign to sum up India. NIce.

    • @Nomadic Chick: Thanks. India has a great sense of humor, though I often wonder if they see it as that.

      @Laura: Ah, so that’s what they call a Banana boat! Didn’t know that– thanks for adding that. I’m assuming Cancun has them?
