Normal train travel. As expected normal travel journey. Should start a little late as it reaches very early and it's little difficult to get the cab. Journey was good but uneventful. Train started on time but guess there should be more frequency of these trains so more of us can utilize this facility.
We were all excited on our trip to Goa. The moment we started from Bangalore it cannot be described we were all just excited. I would suggest all of you to go by car if you have any plans going to Goa. Don't miss out any beach in Goa, because every beach in Goa is fun. You ll never get bored of beaches there.
The best part in Goa is the party's. No matter what u'll never miss any party because everyday is party in Goa. So enjoy.
We four guys had an taxi and planned for GOA and started from Bangalore to Goa via Ooty. We had experienced lot of site full of green, the roads were curved in S shape. We had enjoyed a lot through out the drive. On the way you will have delicious and variety food items which you can't hold your diet. Especially taste of seafood in Goa has no words. For alcoholics you can have variety of drinks. Rather than bus or train its better to go with Own car or taxi.
We all got the bus booked at red-bus.com, we have booked seats in VRL A/C semi sleeper. The Boarding time was 8.30 as specified we got boarded and occupied our respective seats we were comfortable, we stopped for a while and in next day we were in Goa, we were enjoying and happy at last we made it to Goa. VRL provides good services, and you get what you pay for.
