goa trip – day 26 – empty cashpoints , fireworks , and new years eve 2013 rave !

Cashpoints , new years eve ….. what a nitemare today wasted at least 3 hours trying to get more cash today . anjuna beach ran out when I was 1st in que after waiting for about 30 mins , anjuna near dominos was empty , chapora petrol station was just closing as we got there , chapora bank had cash [and the bank was open] … damn thing ran out when we where 2nd in que . went into the bank who said they cant give cash advances on cards . jollie julies in vagator do cash advances and their terminal machine broken and out of action ! unbelievable bad luck ! so we retraced our steps and it was the same everywhere still . there just wasn’t any cash . we stopped looking cos it was so hot at midday and went to our shack on ozran beach for a few hours feeling sorry for ourselves . couldn’t do without cash on NYE .

our shack where getting ready for the evening party , they had this huge 2013 sign made that was packed out with firecrackers and rockets .


they had a few guys building a big cat walk from the club out onto the beach and they would host a model show here this evening too .

this is where we would see in the new year 2013, close to us in a place we knew would be decent with loud music till stupid am time . donut man was even working so grabbed some of those super fresh bad boys

and grabbed a few millers
and had a cool afternoon getting in the mood . there was a great buzz on the beach . went back to chapora bank early evening and thankfully there was cash now . another 20 minute que and we doubled up on 2 cards 20k to make sure we had enough for tonite . there was a sign outside chapora bank on the telegraph pole advertising royal enfield bike tour of goa which looked good and might interest someone .

for our NYE meal we had booked thalassa greek a few days earlier . as usual , mobbed out !

got the party on track with too many cocktails ,


fish bowl sized glasses of sangria ,

and kingfishers .

walked out of there about 10pm definitely well on the way to coma city . god knows how much the bill was we where in there a few hours and we sure paid for that table . its really cool thalassa [see prev blog posts] , authentic greek food and pretty much one of the top few restaurants we ate in from north to south goa . nice cool soundtrack over dinner too . they aren’t cheap the cocktails here , but they are really well made with proper brands , strong , and get you there ! remember booking in advance is essential as it sells out 500 heads each sitting 3 times a day

stumbled our way down the cliff side path to ‘our shack’ on ozran beach adjacent to ‘thalassa’ and managed to bypass the door tax [well we have been here so often I should think so] !

things got pretty messy after that . we ended up buddying up with a Russian guy who was on his own and we exchanged so many drinks n stuff . if you wanna party in goa its so easy to do 😉 communication wasn’t easy but you know when your messed up it all seems to make sense haha , if nothing else it seems to translate for sure. We had a right laugh ! he coudnt really speak our language in all honesty and neither could we speak his . about 11pm the music was blasting and they had the fashion / model show while the dj was on the ‘models [!]’ walked .

then at 12 midnight they set the 15 minute long firework show off . the “2 0 1 3” sign where all separate numbers and standing pretty much by the shiva head rock outside the club on the beach .

when they lit it the 2 and 0 went off with firecrackers and rockets , but the 1 didn’t , and the 3 went up in flames !!!


so the 3 fully then fell off the stand and big floor standing rockets where firing everywhere at all angles . the staff started running for cover , and when they did the people also ran for cover – madness ! then they came back out , chucked petrol over the 1 and set that off with similar outcome . it was a brilliant firework display even if a little risky . eventually the whole frame was ablaze and fell into the sea . all along the beach there where other fireworks too .

partied till 5am with our russian friend and loads of others,






it got very messy , vaguely remember leaving absolutely mashed up !

awesome night , a proper rave …. happy 2013 everyone !!!!
