10 Awesome Pics from Old GOA Churches.

 “Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”
– Mark Jenkins
A friend asked me today, “why are you travelling around so much?”. My response was “why not?”.  We have so  little time  in this life and so much of the world to see, am just but trying to see most of it. Today i am leaving Goa and heading to the state of Gujarat via train. Gujarat is approximately 1043 kilometers away and it will take me 21 hours give or take to get to Vadodara the cultural capital city of Gujarat.
So i decided to do this post and share with you guys some of my fave pics from Old Goa churches. Old Goa  BTW is a UNESCO world heritage site 🙂 #getthemsites #smallwins LOL. I hope you guys like the pictures.
