Summing it all up.

Martin T. (to the right) had pleasant and fascination trip to Goa in the period above. Martin with his touring hat on.

India has some 1200 mill people and have an area of 3,3 mill km2. Goa on the other hand has 1,4 mill inhabitants and the area is 3000 km2. Goa is the richest of the Indian provinces.

Above, you have a map that show where Goa is situated in India.
The weather at Goa from BBC.

Goa is situated on the West Coast of India. Goa used to be a Portuguese colony from 1510 till 1962 when the Indian Army invaded and annexed Goa.

The former Portuguese colony of Goa is one of the most relaxed places in India. In the seventies when all of India was full with European and American hippies, Goa was really packed with them. Now most of the hippies have left, but new travelers keep pouring in. More  textual stuff on Goa and you can have a look at this slideshow from the net.

The weather on Apr 5 is beautiful and Martin takes the opportunity to air his bed mattresses.

Everything ready to go. Just to stick it into the rucksack, Martin's favorite packing gear.

The bed needs cleaning to.

Airing the duvet and pillows helps. Martin wants to come home to a clean hose this time after his dubious trip to Goa.

First stop is the bus stop on the the road to the railway station.

The second stop is the railway station itself for a train to Oslo. Cheap US $ 20.- for a two hour ride.

Leaving Tønsberg, the sun is just setting. Nice in Norway this time of the year and a little late to go visiting other countries. Norway is so beautiful when the sun shines.

Friendly Iraqis on the train. The father Isam Ali to the left and his son, Husein.

Having some Swedish beers on the train to Oslo Airport, Gardemoen.

People are in holiday moods and consequently friendly. This is Odd Albert and his lovely wife from Thailand, Ngyêt. They are staying in the Magnum hotel.

Ngyêt is a friendly lady, feed Odd with some sardine sandwichtes.

Odd and Kristina Wisløff on her way to Goa. Only paid for one night hotel. Planning to backpack and pick up an hotel while there.

Daddy Kamran with his two lovely daughters on to Goa.
