I’ve lived in Goa for 3.5 years and have so much to share. I don’t keep the secret places to myself but lay it all out here on the blog so you can have a great time in this island paradise I call home.

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

Do Something Different in Goa | See “Playground”

For those of us that live in Goa and do the same things again and again, it's nice to change it up even if only for an hour. I was invited to see Playground and jumped on the chance as I'd just been complaining to Ben that I was bored of the same old thing.

Natti’s Naturals | Goa’s New Healthy Fix!

Natti's Naturals is a new organic cafe and retail shop in Arpora, Goa.

When she mentioned she was planning to start an English fry up (free-range sausage and bacon, fried

ISLA Candles | My New Business in Goa!

So enough teasing about this new hobby I have... I started a candle business! Well, I don't know how much of a business it is yet as I am just now getting them in shops. I leave for Karnataka in just a couple weeks and have another secret little project this week, so knew I
