To get to the place in south Goa -Agonda- we wanted to go next would have taken 4 buses and a taxi and taken all day, we have become far to lazy for all that messing around, so instead we paid the extra and got a taxi all the way. A little expensive but took less than 3 hours. So by midday we arrived at Agonda and its better than we expected, really quiet and peaceful, hardly anyone on the beach, just a few little huts along the beach to stay in. After checking out a few huts we finally found a basic shed with a shared toilet and shower for a reasonable price. To be honest we both love our little beach hut and although we aren't directly on the beach it's less than 30 seconds away.
We have just been spending our days chilling on the beach and relaxing, it's hard work! Chris met a guy on the beach who was from St Helens and got talking to him about fishing and the guy gave him a rod and reel and some hooks etc, he was proper made up. He was also invited to go fishing on a local guy's boat for a few hours but didn't catch anything.
We bumped into a guy called Tim that we had met in Mumbai whilst on the film set, he was also an extra and was spending the next 3 months in Agonda whilst his girlfriend trained to become a yoga teacher. He was happy to have a drinking buddy. We have also visited a few other beaches in the area, Palolim beach was busy and a bit like Spain, Patnem beach was quiet and nice and on our last few days we found a beach that was about a ten minute scooter ride from Agonda. This beach was probably the best one we have visited, Cola beach was small, quiet and to top it off had a small fresh water lagoon just set back from the sea.
Apart from lazing on the beaches and eating loads of good food we haven't really done anything else, and with only a few days to go we are both looking forward to getting on the move again.
