Goa is India’s Bora Bora (or so we would like to believe). It seems like in the recent past everyone has been there, some repeatedly and others are making plans to go. In my observation there are two kinds of travelers to Goa. The first lot goes to this beach haven enjoys the place thoroughly, returns home and tell friends and family what a great time they had – the other lot goes ballistic while on vacation recording and posting everything from travelling to peeing on social networking sites. Lets see how our friends/acquaintances ensure that WE know that they ARE in Goa!!
1.Check in EVERYWHERE
2. Post photos every 5 seconds
3. Attacking us with Food Porn
Now, this is actually nice, BUT IT MAKES ME HUNGRY. Pictures of mouth watering food every 2 hours is torture for the people who have to survive on vada pav everyday.
4. Movie References
Yes,I know that one or two scenes from Dil Chahta Hai were shot in a fort, but posing the same way in the same place with a photo description consisting of the lyrics to that song won’t get my like, I’m sorry. Wait for me while I just get on a local train and post a selfie while singing chaiyya chaiyya.
We all know Alcohol is cheap in Goa. And we have all shed happy tears when we came to know about that. But some people consume the alcohol,and some people make it as their model and click infinite pics of it, putting Paris Hilton to shame. DRINK IT.
6. Turning all Macho
Even the most puny guy thinks he has turned into a hunk by riding around in a hired Bullet bike – Ok Bullet Raja please stop posting a million photos .. I get it!
7. Taking pictures of random people especially ‘phoren’ tourists and posting them as your friends. We can tell that you don’t know them!
