How To Spend Few Hours At Goa’s Cabo De Rama Fort

IMG_0021

My Goa sojourn took me to another destination – the Cabo De Rama Fort, which has been held by various rulers in the past.
Situated at Canacona taluka in southern Goa, this place is a major attraction for tourists.
The fort is surrounded by a moat and gatehouse. One can notice big and rusty cannons lying there. This fort also has a small chapel, which is still visited by devotees. When I reached the place I did not find a single tourist. The best part of this place is one can enjoy spectacular views of the Arabian sea from the western side of the fortress.

One can easily reach this place by either hiring a car or taxi. I used a motorbike to reach this place from Agonda.

Why Everybody Loves Bangkok ?

According to Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index, Bangkok is loved by everyone and I am completely agree with them.

Over the past 10 years the world has seen economic ebbs and flows, evolving global competition and partnership, and boundless technological innovation. But, one thing has remained constant: people’s growing desire to travel the world, visit new landscapes and immerse themselves in other cultures. Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index, released today, quantifies this desire: since 2009, the number of international overnight visitors grew an astounding 76 %.

This year, the Global Destination Cities Index-which ranks 200 cities based on proprietary analysis of publicly available visitor volume and spend data-reveals that Bangkok remains the No. 1 destination, with more than 22 million international overnight visitors. Paris and London, in flipped positions this year, hold the No. 2 and 3 spots, respectively both hovering over 19 million. All top 10 cities saw more international overnight visitors in 2018 than the prior year, with the exception of London, which decreased nearly 4 percent. The forecast for 2019 indicates across-the-board growth, with Tokyo expecting the largest uptick in visitors.

Marriott International to Eliminate Single-Use Shower Toiletry Bottles

A Noble Effort

Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR) recently announced that it’s expanding an initiative to replace tiny, single-use toiletry bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel in guestroom showers with larger, pump-topped bottles. To date, the company has already rolled out larger bottles at about 1,000 properties in North America, and now expects most of its other hotels to make the switch by December 2020. When fully implemented across the globe, Marriott International’s expanded toiletry program is expected to prevent about 500 million tiny bottles annually from going to landfills; that’s about 1.7 million pounds of plastic, a 30% annual reduction from current amenity plastic usage.

I just hope other luxury hotels around the world will take such initiative soon.
