We took an Easter break in Goa - a beautiful part of India and a deliciously hot escape from the April showers in UK.
We hired a nippy Honda 125 bike and travelled around Goa, from the lush banana and spice plantations to the miles of deserted golden beaches.
Goa is the travellers' paradise - lovely friendly locals, fantastic low priced food, hot hot sun, golden sand and blue clear seas...

Goa is covered with beautiful shady, palm trees - the coconut palm is used in drinks, cooking, soap and cosmetics. The fragrant oil always reminds me of holidays.
The husk, coir, is made into rope, the palm tree trunks are used in building and the leaves are plaited to make roofing. The sap makes a fierce local liquor called feni - if you're lucky you should see the amazing skill of the locals climbing up to the top of these tall trees to extract the potent juice.
The Cashew trees also yield a yellow fruit which is used to make the pricier 'cashew feni' - it resembles tequila in taste, the resulting hangover is as rough as the drink!
