Travel Stories with Kids – Treating Myself with a Luxury Passport Holder

posted by Anupriya March 21, 2019 0 comments

As someone who has been living away from the nest (yes! The home where my parents live), I could call myself a frequent traveler. But travelling after becoming a mom has taken an all together different meaning. Earlier the idea of travelling excited me no end. Days before the scheduled travel I would be a chirpy bird, putting my packing together and dreaming about the adventures that would await me enroute my destination.  But ever since I became a mother, the preceding days see me more nervous than excited.  The reason? I fear that I might just forget something crucial for the travel. Or that I might pack all wrong and put stuff that needs to be in the hand luggage (specially the kids stuff). Continue Reading

A trip To The Small But Beautiful Sikkim

posted by Anupriya March 12, 2019 13 Comments

It was around nine years ago that we had travelled to Sikkim. As a young couple, we were really excited to go to this popular tourist attraction in the North East of India and explore its scenic beauty. Given that I come from Chandigarh, which lies in the foothills of Shivaliks, I have always loved hill-stations.  And as is known, the best part of going to hill stations is that one has to traverse through roads. So three days of road trip it was for us.

The Hotel

Because as youngsters we were impulsive travelers, we didn’t want to kill the adventure by making advance bookings. I know you might think how foolish of us. But we had our research in place and figured that due to the off-season in August we would not have too much of a problem getting a hotel booking. And so we made a list of 3-4 hotels and resorts and decided to explore each of them before finalizing a booking on arrival. Some of the resorts that we on our list were Summit Golden Crescent Resort Hotel, Club Mahindra, The Elgin Nor-Khill , The Orange Resort. Personally I had loved The Orange resort, (with its cottages that overlooked the dense forests down the hill) but the husband wanted to stay somewhere closer to the main city. And thus Club Mahindra too was struck off. We finally zeroed in on The Elgin Nor-khill. Continue Reading

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
