Yes we're here Goa & Yes have been busy....!!

Hello all who were interested.

Yes we are here and have been quite busy getting organised, as some may or may not of been aware I'm here for Dental treatment and Holiday.

So first few days was hectic. Changing money, sorting hotel, 3 x Initial Dental appointments at 3 different clinics. To see what's on offer of course.

Get 2 sims that took a bit of work got there in the end...!!

Pick a Dental Clinic - went with Dr Rachna at The Smile Factory.

Others would of been equally as good but had to make a choice.

Then started the work.

Still getting plenty of free time in between for touring about.

So far been to 3 beach shacks Bubbles & Zanzibar Calangute/Baga beaches.

Bono's down at Candolim beach, Bono's being the better one so far but others were good enough to go back to.

Tried Spice Rack round the corner from hotel BloomSuites Calangute.

The food here is very good also that's both Spice Rack & BloomSuites.

Been to the Saturday night Apora Markets. Apparently that was a quite days trade that Saturday.....looked busy to us.

Went out yesterday to Old Goa, Churches etc....

Had lunch in Panjim at The Black Sheep Bistro nice...craft beers here, they have great stout beer ( forget name ) but I' ll find it again though don't worry about that.

More Dentist today though but not till 2pm so morning free.

My son Harley and I are tackling Calangute - Candolim along the beach today, Ooohhhh......the Sand and the calves.....!!

So there will be another hut/ shack hunt today....!!

Badger we have used your taxi man Prashant - nice man.

So we have 2 we are using.

Ok for those who were worried about us ( Hi Joe T )there you go onto day 5 today of 20 days in Goa.

If I don't get back soon it's because we'll be busy or having too much fun....!!

Or at the Dentist....Yay....!!

Dragonfli - I found Babutes...??

Had a look upstairs it just near The Smile Factory Dental Clinic Other side of road. (4 more Days ).

Also I have to right all this on my Phone....makes for hard work as they say fat fingers and thumbs....although mine not that fat but still a tad difficult when your just a finger tapper.

Plan more indepth updates when get home and go back through all my WhatsApp posts home.

Have a family group going so it's also busy keeping them informed as well. My 8 kids wife and other rellies all like updates as well, all done on one group makes it a bit easier.

See ya latter for now.....!!

Aussie Joh....!!

Today we did the walk Calangute to Candolim along the beach and further.

Didn't take too long...!!

Stopped in at Dom's Shack had a nice Mushroom Chicken Dish, very enjoyable.

I then left the young bloke a the shack as he was going further walk abouts.

Headed off to the main road Fort Aguada/Candolim rd to walk to my Dental Appointment with Dr Rachna at the Smile Factory. Lets just say long time in chair = saw jaw.

2pm appoint.

Finished and met my boy Harley walked from there down Holiday street.

Thought we were gonna knock Pousada of the eats list but closed. Try again Later....!!

Continued walking back towards BloomSuites for next tick off on list Palate.

Had a very nice Goan Chicken Vindaloo. Plus Squid rings & bowl of rice for the Vindaloo sauce of course. Was not as hot as some Vindaloo's I've had before but definately tasty...!!

3 x Tuborgs.

Then walked back To Hotel.

Good night I'm buggered, tired, worn out, had it, stuffed & very sleepy.

Regards Aussie Joh...!!
