My favourite Caribbean island, friendly people, beautiful beaches and a lasting memory is the Polo match we watched eating cucumber sandwiches!

Colourful is a great way to describe Goa! The night market with amazing street food, Market stalls and live music was a very memorable evening and walking for miles along the sand stopping off at the beach shacks was great fun.

Great wintersun destination with friendly locals, amazing food & a highlight was staying in a stilted room on the river watching the exotic birdlife.
