Decide on the place:-
This is not as easy as it may sound when you are travelling with kids. Pick a place that is not just museums and ruins. That is not exactly every kid’s dream destination.

This can make all the difference. Research your destination and prepare the itinerary accordingly. Keep in mind the timings when you prepare the list. This way you will ensure that you do not end up missing any of the important destinations. However, keep this a little flexible. You do not want to run around catching up with your schedule on a holiday!

Book what you can:-
It is always a good idea to book whatever you can in advance. Today many places accept bookings online. Not only can you get fabulous deals and discounts, you can also be assured of a smooth and hassle-free trip where your tickets are already booked!

Arrange all you papers:-
Start arranging all the papers you need –– from travel documents to emergency papers. Keep a folder for important stuff like flight tickets, passport and visa to carry in your travel case. These will not be checked in. Do not forget to add important like any medical papers and prescriptions if your child suffered from any recurring condition like allergies. It is also a good idea scan copies of important documents and mail them to yourself.

Prepare your lists:-

Now start with the lists. These are clothes, documents, medicines, books, tickets, emergency phone numbers and so on. Take your time when you make this list, providing for every contingency. Now double check after you pack to make sure you have everything. You should also mail somebody a list of your itinerary and local contacts before you leave.

How to Make the Most Out of Travelling Abroad

Travelling AbroadTravelling abroad is always an enervating experience. It can be exciting, educating and enlightening. But it can also be full of pitfalls. So how do you make sure that you make the best of your travels? We give you some valuable tips:



Travel Light:- This is important because you do not want to end up hauling minds of luggage! Always try and pack as lightly as possible. Leave as much space as possible for gifts you are sure to buy. It is also a good idea to pack in a sturdy foldable bag or two. These are your backup when you find yourself on a shopping spree!

Find Your Network:- Connect with your extended network of friends and family to find out if you know anyone in your destination. Call up anyone you know or connect through social media. A local eye and perspective can be very handy. They can tell you about places that most tourists are unaware of, places where the locals go to eat, the local specialities that you must carry home and the best place for a good bargain!

Be Flexible:- The golden rule of travelling is: be flexible. Be ready to go with the flow. You have to be flexible enough to take disruptions in routine because no matter how much your prepare beforehand, something can and will go wrong! Open yourself to new food and new  view the world.

Why Travelling is Good for The Soul


We all love to take a holiday, get away from the humdrum of our lives. But travelling is more than just some time off. It is not just a vacation to recharge our batteries. Travelling is a means in itself. In other words, the best travels are those that are undertaken for their own sake. So what makes traveling so important for our soul?

Meeting new cultures
The world is a huge place and parts of it are startlingly different from ours. Travelling takes us to new people and introduces us to unique cultures and traditions that exist in this world. It widens our perception of human beings, of the different practices, customs and traditions that are followed around the world.
In some cases, we get to see for ourselves places we have only read about. The best part, however, is finding something which is completely different. You get a chance to learn new languages, new ways of interacting and different kind of food that is eaten around the world.

Changing perceptions
The best part about traveling is its ability to change perceptions. Unless we step out of our safe little boxes, we cannot understand the world that is so different from our little box. Travelling has the power to change our believes, widen our view of what is acceptable and what is not.
You may think that certain believes are sacrosanct and then you find a whole culture that lives and breathes while defying that very belief! Some societies are rigid, while some are almost without any restrictions; some run on rules and regulations, while some are anarchies. Traveling teaches us that every human being –– no matter their race, colour, religion –– has the potential to achieve greatness.

Adapting and resourcing

This is almost a by-product of travelling. Any seasoned traveller will tell you that no matter how complete your preparation and planning, something can and will go wrong. You will find yourself without your passport, your return flight will get cancelled, the hotel booking will fail to come through or some other catastrophe will occur. In such cases you will just have to pull up your shoelaces and find some solution. It will force you to adapt to new tastes, people and ideas. You will have to eat something you thought unacceptable, sleep somewhere you never thought you would, communicate with people without either of you understanding the other!
