Why You’ve Got to See the Badami Cave Temples

There was once an empire called the Chalukya’s. Yes, I also didn’t know that. But I was about to find out a hell of a lot about them! Just a 3 hour drive from Hampi, it’s another awesome spot for temples and hiking, yet none of the tourists come here. Oh wait, I did see

Weekend of Bliss at the Alila Diwa Goa

When it comes to the 5 star hotel “experience” Alila Diwa Goa knocks it out of the park. This is my favorite luxury hotel in South Goa. My biggest question over the last weekend I spent there was "where should I have my next drink?" Don't forget to pick up my Insider Guide to Goa and my

Ok maybe the massage part more so than the medical part, but had I more time at Indus Valley Ayurvedic Centre (IVAC) it might have just converted the U.S. trained nurse in me over. I have always thought Ayurveda massages were too oily and didn’t work my muscles

“What do you do all day?” (Expat in Goa)
