#TravelWithKids ~ Tips to keep in mind when travelling with kids

Posted by Nikita Johri at 7:04 PM
Kids see the world more innocently than us, adults, who are more skeptical of the definition of fun. I went along with my brother and his family to Goa in October this year and I was amazed at the joy and happiness that his two children, one aged eight and the other aged six, took even while we, adults, kept grumbling at things like the heat during daytime. The small children took joy over the smaller things like building sand castles on the beach, cooing over the many types of fish they could see and the colourful dresses that the people there wore!

My sister-in-law had taken care to enlighten her children about Goa beforehand, so when they actually visited Goa they could relate the various places they saw with the information they already had by reading about them. This was fun and had them completely entertained giving us, adults, no worries about entertaining them ourselves! Furthermore, they had come prepared with swimsuits, hats, goggles and suntan lotion which they happily showcased at the beaches enjoying having their pictures taken in different poses. It is so invigorating to see children enjoying the simple pleasures. They didn't want flashy night clubs or five star resorts to enjoy themselves. They were happy playing in the sand without worrying about getting tanned and without taking tension of getting their clothes dirty. They were happy to get a break from school and enjoyed the food, games, beaches and the visit to the various landmarks in Goa. Watching them laugh, play and enjoy with abandon, I was also attracted by their easy pleasure and have to say that the happiness and enjoyment I experienced on this trip was unlike any of my other trips. Add the funny, slightly crazy poses we made for the pictures, I know the photos will make me laugh always.

However, when taking children on holidays we also need to take care of certain things so the little ones are not inconvenienced and are able to enjoy the vacation to the fullest. 

  • The first thing that I noticed about this holiday with my brother's family was that they had already acquainted their children to the history of the place and its various attractions so that when they actually visited those places the children already had some idea about its history and so were excited to compare their bookish knowledge with the actual place being in front of them!
  • Second, parents need to ensure that they have had their children checked by a doctor before they travel so that they know that their children are in good health and are prepared in case they suffer from any illness during the holiday. Plan for unexpected illnesses too by packing medicines for general ailments like stomach ache, head ache, vomitting etc.
  • Third, get your children's IDs in order before travelling so that you don't face any issues later on.

Book Review:
I have read The Recluse Storyteller by Mark W Sasse and had enjoyed his storytelling style in the book. So, when he told me about this Christmas short story, I was eager to start on it.

If Love is a Crime is a tender, heartfelt and passionate story of doing what is right even if it means facing difficulties. Set in the year 1852, the story narrates the events of the evening of Christmas eve when a woman truly spreads the cheer of Christmas to a young girl by giving her a future.

Short, concise but very powerful in its message and the warmth that it leaves behind in the heart of the reader, If Love is a Crime is a must read and will be greatly enjoyed by everyone. 4.5 out of 5 to it and strongly recommended for this holiday season. Go read this beautiful story expertly brought to life by a very talented author and feel the magic of Christmas! :)

I received a copy of the book from the author and I am very thankful to him. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
