The aim was to see all the beaches in Goa, India, and photograph them to blog them. It took altogether some 14 years, since I was actually living in Europe and there is some 100km of beaches in Goa only. But here they are now – all the beaches in Goa, from North to South.
The namelinks below each photo will lead you to the introductions of each beach. And if there is an existing travelguide for the beach in question, you will find it in the guidelink. –

Here’s a recent Indivue short video telling you about some 13 different methods to travel in India. Recent I say, because the video was recently updated. But mostly it is an update to the previous video about various ways to travel in India for a female.
Although the video duration is only 2:20 minutes, it has taken some 13 years to make it. Videos are from such a long period of time.
It had been five years since my previous visit to Delhi, India.
The New Delhi airport was looking kind of same, but the air outside was different. I realized the foggy sceneries which I had wondered in the recent hindi film Rajma Chawal from 2018 had actually been the real Delhi. And then I remembered the video I had seen in Twitter last winter, where the winter fog in Delhi had once been so bad that cars were crashing to each other.
Luckily this time the Delhi winter fog and smog were not that bad. Though later on my continuing flight from Delhi was delayed with couple of hours. The reason being the fog only.
Otherwise in January Delhi was chilling cold and warm clothes and winter jackets were needed. I found Christmas decoration like Christmas tree and reindeers with the sledge by the road to the airport. What a nice way to greet the tourist and cheer up the landscape!
Since I was travelling early morning, no traffic jams were met. Most of the motorcycle and scooter drivers were wearing helmets for their protection, but many passengers were still lacking those.
The stadium building in Delhi was a new sight to me. Find the stadium, the good old rickshaws and other means of public transport together with some chilly Delhi winter scenes from January 2019 with the fog and smog here in this video, and subscribe INDIVUE for more travel and art to come!

It is one of the oldest structural stone temples of South India.
Shore Temple is beautiful and impressive to look and experience at.

Mahabalipuram Dance Festival is held by this site, to celebrate traditional Indian dance.
The photographs from Mahabalipuram show you the clear blue sky on a typical hot and sunny day in Tamil Nadu. There’s a green nature surrounding the Shore Temples.
In addition to lions and Nandi, many Gods and Goddesses were also carved in the temple stones. See the images attached –

Gokarn, also written as Gokarna, is a small village in the West coast of India, in the state of Karnataka, which is a neighboring state to Goa. Gokarn is located some 145km towards South from Goa, and it is a religiously significant place for Hindus, which is why it is very common to see there pilgrims dressed in black.
You can reach Gokarn easily by train, bus or car, from Goa, but of all these 3 the busride will most likely consume most of your energy, though nothing beats the warm wind blowing through the bus windows during sunset time.
Here’s 5 reasons to visit Gokarn –
1. If you are hippy minded missing the good old days of Goa, you can get some of those hippy vibes back from Kudley Beach, Om-beach and especially Paradise Beach in Gokarn. Paradise Beach you can reach by boat and sleep overnight there in some very simple huts by the sea. Sunbathing also allowed.
2. Sunsets by the sea in Gokarn have been a way more beautiful than in many other places in India. One of the best places to enjoy sunset in Gokarn is on top of the hill between Kudley Beach and Gokarn Beach. The wind is very smooth. Just remember to return to the village before it gets too dark.
3. Gokarn will show you the real beautiful India, which is not too modern. It will also show you some incredible things as well, like a man and a woman walking on the same street without a shirt and without any problem from other people. See the attached photo if you don’t believe it.
4. The small streets of Gokarn will give you an idea of the real life of dedicated Hindus.
5. Restaurants in Gokarn are often very spicy for the Western tongue, but one small cafe there used to make really fabulous uttapams. That taste could make the customer come back all the way from Finland. Don’t know if that place exists anymore, but at least in Om Beach there’s one very nice restaurant, namely Namaste Cafe.
