Sad to leave this beautiful guesthouse today 😞 had such a relaxing and peaceful time staying with the wonderful Menezes family, who treated us more like family than guests. Would return here in a heartbeat 💗
Day 7: Delhi to Goa and so happy to finally be our home for the next 2 nights in Old Goa. We spent 12 hours travelling to Goa today, despite it being a 2.5 hour plane trip 😳 but between having to get to the airport 4 hours before the flight because it’s super busy, a 2.5 hour flight delay due to incredibly heavy fog, 3 gate changes at the airport....we have finally arrived to our beautiful guesthouse, which is an old (actually older than the Taj Mahal) Portuguese house. Will take more photos in daylight tomorrow, as it’s gorgeous!!
We went on a detour so they could do some sightseeing "I could sit all day here" he said. Dwaine Jungen of Preferred Chassis Fabrication, USA. @originalscorpion4x4 took some time off with@vjsnagra Jaskirat Singh Nagra of Sarbloh Motors and his family after a mud filled race against time in the forrests of Goa. High Mobility Vehicles are a relatively new type of vehicle to an Indian consumer. They are designed and built to tackle any sort of terrain. Light, agile , high powered, highly mobile wheeled tactical vehicles. This joint venture between two companies will soon bring in India’s most extreme off-road vehicle. A partnership Preferred Chassis Fabrication and India’s Sarbloh Motors has partnered to form a new company called Iron Scorpion HMV Pvt. Ltd. It is a sweet ride, I can tell you that! If tarmac isn't your thing and you prefer spending time off the road this could be just the vehicle you've been waiting for! We had Jaskirat and his family along with Dwaine Jungen stay with us during the Rain Forest Challenge, the most extreme off-road event in the country better known as RFC 2017 where the Scorpion finished with ease while other offroaders went through multiple gearboxes and other failures. Less than half the vehicles that started this year's event managed to finish it, the scorpion sailed right through it. The vehicle has huge defence sector capabilities too and can be a crown in the Indian armed forces specially once it's 'Made in India'. We sure hope to be seening you again Dwaine! #casamenezesgoa#4x4#4x4offroad#ironscorpion#offroad#offroader#vacationmode#racemode#rfc#rfc2017#travelblog#travelphotography#vacation#offroadevent#meanmachine#autocar#homeawayfromhome#goa#goatourism#incredibleindia#automotive#overdrive#holiday
