My husband absolutely loves driving and when one of the friends proposed that we take up a self-driven road trip to Puri from Kolkata, he grabbed the opportunity like none other. Though I had my reservations about travelling around 500 km by road with a toddler, the adventure seeker in me gave in to the temptation. Before I knew it, we were on our way to Puri, with AJ driving and with two toddlers in the car. Well, this trip happened when Nik was 2 years of age, and the other toddler wasn’t Lucky. It was AJ’s cousin’s daughter, as they too were accompanying us for the trip.

Both AJ and I, we like to start early when we know we have a long journey ahead. The city traffic is minimal and it helps you scuttle out to the highway in least possible time. So here we were, all set to drive our way to Puri. Continue Reading

A holiday that I waited for a lifetime, came at a time when I least expected it. Nik had begun his formal school and Lucky had just turned one. That’s when AJ realized that we haven’t travelled to any exotic destination in a while (ummm to be more precise that was 6 years back to Goa). Suddenly he had this pang to travel to a foreign destination that too on our 7th wedding anniversary (which was just 6 weeks away) I panicked, because I had no clue how we were to make the trip work with two kids, when my darling of a mom-in-law came to my rescue and asked me to travel sans the kids.

“They are too young to enjoy the trip. And I think you two need a break too.” I will always love her to the moon and back for pushing me out alone with the husband and have a 12 day long trip. Continue Reading

Both husband and myself, we aren’t very enthusiastic about travelling to the hills. We’d rather prefer the bliss of and serenity of a beach. Simply because travelling to a beach is not a bit taxing when compared to the twisty and turny journey to a hill station. Yet, when it came to planning a holiday post my stint at my parents this March, we had to pin down on a hill station. Why? Because I was at my parents’ in Chandigarh and AJ (husband) wanted to spare some time to travel to a not seen before destination. I was personally not very enthusiastic about traveling to the hills with two kids both of who are prone to motion sickness. But then, given that we were planning a vacation in the first week of April, we had to consider the fact that most of the plains were engulfed in the heat wave. We sat with the map and figured that the nearest hill station was 6 hours from Chandigarh. The good thing was that this hill station was on my list of places to visit for long and I was ready to take the leap of faith while traveling with my boys. So yes Mcleodganj and Dharamshala it was!
