We had our first vacation with both our kids in March, 2018 and were very proud of ourselves for pulling it through quite successfully. Ummm! We managed to cover only half the sites in McleodGanj, but we really enjoyed ourselves. Amidst planning a slow itinerary and including some local parks to keep the kids entertained, we did manage to have some leisure WE time on the terrace of our hotel while it drizzled. Aah! The romance… But last month, when we were to travel to Vishakhapatnam, I was absolutely skeptical of that kind of a smooth run.  One, we were traveling in a group (yes! 5 couples and 4 kids, the eldest one being my Nik at almost 6 years) And two, the kids were older now, with minds of their own.

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!
