Bombay Dub Orchestra - Discovery from India

During our time in India, we have discovered a very good music project. The BOMBAY DUB ORCHESTRA combines ambient music, orchestra tunes (played by the Bollywood Movie Orchestra) with traditional Indian vocal and instrument appearances like sitar and wooden flute. The result is an interesting orchestral chill out mixture. You can watch a visual element of the track 'Compassion' from Bombay Dub Orchestra's BBC Electric Proms performance below this entry.

Goa Memories - Part 2

Monday, December 3 In the morning we spent most of our time walking around in Palolem village and to buy some traditional gifts for our families. In the afternoon we booked a boat cruise with Farawaycruises which was really exciting and relaxing. Departed from Palolem beach and cruised past Agonda and Kola beach. Stopped for a swim and kayaking near a remote beach and enjoyed a range of delicious snacks before heading back to Palolem. We saw a wonderful sunset but unfortunately no dolphins. A wonderful trip. Tuesday, December 4 This day we hired another scooter and discovered a lot of nice things in the area around Palolem. We cruised alongside the coast, across the Talpona River until we found an isolated beach called Galgibaga. This beach is very beautiful and protected by the Forest Department of the Goan government. There are no beach resorts (the villagers in the vicinity prevented the building of beach resorts in the past), there is just nature and a paradise for turtles. We wen

Goa Memories - Part 1

Friday, November 30 On this Friday afternoon we traveled with Air Deccan from Hyderabad towards Goa. After a 1.5 hour flight we arrived well in the Indian sunshine state. The first impression was the fact that the heat is completely different there, more humid perhaps because of the Arabian Sea. From Goa Airport we were picked up by a taxi, which was organized by our hotel owner Ciaran's. After another journey of 1.5 hours through the landscape of Central- and South Goa, alongside palm trees and lots of cows we finally approached our place to stay, located at Palolem Beach. We were a bit disappointed about the accommodation in the first place but after reviewing the other resorts, Ciaran's was the best place to stay. They have a restaurant and a bar, with a wide range of seafood and - surprise - beef steak(!!) as well as local beers. The bar and restaurant are actually very good. After a brief overview we decided just to stay on the beach and walk around for the rest of the day

Back in Dublin

After six amazing and relaxing days in the heat of 36 degrees and sunshine all day long in Goa we arrived well back in rainy Dublin yesterday afternoon. We spent wonderful moments relaxing on Palolem Beach including discovering the southern villages around Goa on a scooter as well as boat and Kayak cruises at sunset. Photos and a detailed report will be posted soon. Nach sechs aufregenden und entspannenden Tage in 36 Grad Hitze und Sonnenschein sind wir gestern im wieder im verregneten Dublin angekommen. Wir haben wundervolle Momente verbracht, sei es beim Relaxen am Palolem Beach, auf einer Boots- und Kayaktour oder beim Erkunden der Dörfer im Süden Goas mit einem Moped. Fotos und detailierte Berichte gibt es bald.
