Hi, I'm planning a 2 week trip from Mumbai with one friend and his brother. I'm an India regular, my friend will be going for 3rd time, but for his brother it's the first trip, and he is only staying 13 nights.
Here's my proposed itinerary.

Arr Fri (2/01/15) mumbai 0345 (damn!). Check in at Railway retiring rooms and get some sleep. Afternoon sightseeing in Mum, 2200 train to Bijapur
Sat arr Bijapur 1100.
Sun in bijapur
Mon train to Badami
Tues in Badami
Weds taxi (probably) to Hampi
Thurs/fri/sat in Hampi. I'm hoping it's the hampi utsav but cannot find any confirmation of the dates for 2015.
Sun, afternoon train to Hubli, 2300 train to Madgaon.
Mon arr Madgaon 0700 bus or taxi to Agonda
Tues in Agonda
Weds night train to Mumbai
Thurs Arr Mum 0700, day sightseeing, then see my friends brother off at airport.

Any comments on this plan? I feel it offers a good variety of scenes and is not too hectic for a first timer in India.
I didn't originally plan to visit Goa, I've never been there but somehow it fits to go there after Hampi, as it's not too long a journey. Any suggestions as to where to stay, I am looking for peace not parties. Perhaps there are more interesting places than Agonda, but with only 2 nights we can't do too much exploration. What else to do there to get a sense of Goa in a very short time?
So please, any comments, tips, recommendations for accommodation etc could be really useful.
