VIDEO: The “Other Side” of Goa!

Forget Goa’s beaches. Ditch the crowds. Come with me. Discover the other side of Goa.

That was my first (amateur) attempt at video. What do you think?

  2. Good One Shivya. I really liked it. It’s simple and the content in the video is very good. I haven’t seen a Goa of that kind! May be you can try taking 3-5 sec filming of these locations and collate them, it might look even beautiful 🙂

    • Thanks Anu, glad you liked it 🙂 That’s the plan, hoping to do a more video-video next time. And hope you get to see this side of Goa soon!

    Really nice, and yes I have to agree with Anu, maybe 5 second clippings of these activities also would have made a nice video, but I understand the complexity involved in that…

    • Welcome to my blog, Ron! Sri Lanka is one of my favorite countries in the world; loved my time there earlier this year, especially the east coast and north central parts. Glad you liked the video, and hope to see you here again 🙂

  5. I didn’t think this video was amateur in any way!

    I have always wondered about the Goa behind the beaches and the parties. Now, I know. 🙂 There is so much to explore there!

    • Haha, that’s the power of the Mac 😉 There really is so much more, I’ve only done a bit of North Goa and found so much. I’m sure you’ll love it and discover lots!

  6. Very nicely done Shivya. This is my first time at your blog and the reason I hopped over was because I heard someone make a casual mention that if anyone is heading to Goa they should check your blog for travel tips.
    Now since I am a goan and most blogs I have come across only talk about the stereotyped Goa, It was a pleasure to know that you have bothered to find out about the real Goa…

    I think as a local I agree with all that you have said in this video except maybe the gambling bit, that is one area all locals are facing trouble with, and over the years it has been ruining the culture of the place 😦
