goa 2015: D11 – gokarna karnataka : temple, street market, kudle & om beach, food, roadtrip, festival, menu’s

P1020279

the journey from palolem to gokarna went well and was exactly as we had planned out . took about 2 hours i guess on the 125 moped . roads where excellent , not very busy with traffic . the new road in southern goa thru the forest was outstanding . it was much nicer than the drive from anjuna to palolem where there are a few major towns to navigate incl panjim . along the way we stopped for a freshly made juice and sat watching kingfishers with a view youd pay for .

a lot of people have basic english so its not even as hard to communicate things as it was in say maharashtra due to our total lack of indian language . its just got that feel good factor . things are noticeably cheaper here too ie thai sure and mirror shrts 300R well cheaper than the goa markets . they have huge temple chariots they sometimes pull along the streets that you might just catch , and the streets are a riot of colour , decorated with overhead canopies and chalked streets .

finally a video of a few things like juice centre , beach moments , and the evening festival where they carry the burning torches and pull a small colourful temple thru the streets preceeded by drummers and flags . fantastic !

    Looks fantastic.

    Is the sea OK for swimming in? The warning signs suggest otherwise.
