Hey Sparsha,

Happy new year!

The Goa visit was excellent. I stayed at Seby guest house, one of the five guest houses owned by the owners of Dona Crystallina. It was very good and the beach shack owned by them serves amazing food with very good service.

Thanks a lot for all the information.

God bless!
