If you’ve read my previous posts, you will know all about my love for South Goa and the South Goa beaches. From the empty beaches to colorful shacks and cafes nested in forests – there’s nothing to not love. This post is a guide to the South Goa beaches and all the wonderful eateries out there.
The brightly colored walls of Pondicherry deserve outfits that do justice to the pictures clicked against these walls. Pink bougainvillea flowers and cheerful houses is what comes to mind when I think of Pondicherry. That’s why I put together some casual, airy and bright outfits for my trip to Pondi.
Pondicherry has a bunch of jaunty cafes and restaurants serving appetizing food in a beautiful setting. Based on my recent visit to Pondi, I have compiled my list of the best eateries in Pondicherry. There are definitely many more great options, but these were my clear favorites.

In fact, the soothing environment coupled with the healthy yet mouth-watering food make this place the best vegan restaurant in all of Goa. You don’t have to be a vegan or a vegetarian to appreciate the grandeur of this place.
