This trip is an amalgam of the magnificent Sahyadri Western Ghats covered in thick forests, the ecologically devastated mining belt in Sanguem and the splendid Dudhsagar Waterfalls.

The blue, yellow, ochre, port, brick red, and white heritage homes of the area mark the characteristic atmosphere of the Latin Quarter. We step out in the morning for a ride around the area. We stop by the iconic 30th January bakery, small cafes and old pubs on the streets.

We continue riding towards Old Goa, which was built by the Bijapur Sultanate in the 15th century. It served as the capital of Portuguese India from the 16th century until it was abandoned in the 18th century, when a bucolic plague hit the region. Remnants of Old Goa are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, replete with old churches like St. Francis, Basilica of Bom Jesus and Church of Saint Cajetao.
