Palolem Beach, Goa

I’ve never been so relaxed in my life. We totally embraced the Goan lifestyle. Just chilling out, generally having a good time. We also hired a scooter and bombed around a bit but apart from that, we did nothing.

Palolem Beach

What we did

Bugger all, to be honest. In fact, I could quite happily do nothing ever again.


I think it’s fair to say I was pretty content in Goa. We spent a lot longer here than we thought because it was just so laid back and frankly we couldn’t be bothered to move on for a while.


The lovely Palolem beach. Just loved wandering up and down it killing time.


Not much else is required. Beer on my birthday with Serena and a sunset by the sea. To me, this is the life. Not having to be anywhere in particular and not answering to anyone. Not everyone gets to experience freedom like this so I feel very lucky to have done so for a whole year.


Our mean machine. This was the day that the Barak Obama announced to the world that they had killed Osama Bin Laden.


I can understand why people drop out of normal life and come here. It’s actually very tempting.
