Summing it all up.

Ellen K to the left and Martin T. to the right had pleasant and fascination trip to Goa in the period above.  This was Martin's second trip to Goa this year. He was here in the period Apr 6 to 20th. This time he went to fix some teeth having bridgework done. Saved some money on the deal. He enjoyed the trip so much that he is due for the third trip this year on Dec 26th.

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 pictures below and on the following pages,  are all thumbnails, meaning they are small copies of the real thing. You just click on the thumbnails, and you get the full picture in a separate window. Just click the picture to get the full size.

To the left, the Renton Manor where Martin and Ellen stayed for two weeks. Renton Manor is situated some 3 km from the beach and in the Arpora area.

To the right, you have a detailed map of the province Goa. We stayed at  Renton Manor Hotel, an old fashion, somewhat threadbare and purely maintained one.

And a more detailed map of Goa with the main places and roads. This is taken from www.gogoa.com.

Then it was off in the cold dark nights of November weather. This is the railway station of Tønsberg.

Martin settling in for the night with a traveling beer

Then after an hour and half, Martin arrived in Oslo for an hour waiting time at the pub The Sidetrack.

Not bad, but bloody expensive. The Christmas beer was OK though. Martin arrived at the airport at 0130  the morning of November 27th. And the plane did not leave till 0630 in the morning.  

The next day, November 27th, we arrived in Goa.
