Corjeum Fort Source: @shivya #goaintherains #goamonsoons #goamonsoon #goarain #goarain #goa Legend has it that at a time when women weren’t even allowed to leave the house, Ursula e Lancastre, a Portuguese lady, wore men’s clothes and travelled the globe solo! ? . . Unfortunately, at Corjuem Fort in Goa, she was recognized and captured. The ancient, overgrown stone walls of the fort offer views over the Western Ghats, and solitude – I didn’t find a signboard or another person here. And maybe if I listen close enough, I might just hear the walls echo with stories of Ursula’s brave journey. ⚡️ . . Love how aimless driving around Goa throws up inspiring stories (took this photo on my first visit to Corjuem Fort, monsoon 2014). ☔️ . . Have you come across any stories of adventurers from long ago in India? ?
