#SayYesToTheWorld Traveling With Kids, It is Easier Than You Think

After having a kid in our life, we husband-wife were completely consumed in our parenting duties. Those initial days were very busy and hectic. I was trying to balance both, my work and an infant at home. Although my mother-in-law was with us to look after our few months old son, we both hardly had any free time. I once read that the best way to spell love is “T.I.M.E”. And we both were drained on this front. I knew it was a usual phase that every couple goes through after becoming parents, however, we both needed a break from our usual life.

We Planned The Perfect Getaway 
Then one day I read a post on traveling and reading this, I couldn't stop myself from forwarding this to my dear husband. The post was promoting new parents to go on vacations with small kids. As per the post, when kids are small and yet to join the school, this is the best time to explore the world with them. Realizing the fact, my husband planned a week-long travel but this time we were not alone. Our one and half year old boy was with us. Our plans and travel were completely focused on our toddler. Traveling with a toddler can be very intimidating. You never really know how he/she would react once you are out there (will they cry or shout or poop or throw up?). Thank God, we went ahead and booked our flight tickets. All my worries and apprehensions got busted after this trip. 

Monsoon Capital of India “Pune”
During that travel, we, husband-wife, got a chance to refresh our family and personal lives with enjoying a full week's vacation in Monsoon capital of India “Pune”. We went to a family friend's place there, and the first time I realized that a bit of TLC is needed in every relationship to keep it harmonious. Scientist says humans are pre-programmed to love green spaces of nature. There is something really special about being in nature; something magical that calms the depths of our souls like nothing else. Really, with so much greenery and good weather, our family Pune visit was awesomely wonderful. Roaming around in drizzling rain and enjoying the best of nature’s presence along with good friends, what can be better than that? Our visit included many places around Pune including beautiful Lavasa and Khandala.

Traveling Is Definitely the Best Time To Bond.
The best part of this exploration trek was my son's gleeful behavior throughout the trip. We normally feel young children may not remember the new things they discover during a trip but they do. Traveling teaches young kids many new things. They learn ways of the world. They learn how to be adaptable and they learn how to express themselves better. To my surprise, my toddler loved every bit of this travel. He was fine when we air traveled. He was absolutely cheery when we road traveled and he was even more elated when we walked in the rain of Lavasa. Traveling provides one of the best ways to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life. And during our Pune travel, we also got ample of time to give to our boy. I now feel traveling is definitely the best time to bond.

#SayYesToTheWorld With Kids 
I know, with kids comes a lot of exceptions and tough times, especially when you are at a new place. Howbeit, I feel a good planning can make your vacation an absolute bliss with the company of kids. Being open-minded in taking my toddler to new places, helped me realize that kids can be awesome vacation partners and a world travelers too. Better than grownups, kids express more openness for new people, new culture, and new surroundings. I have traveled many places with my young boy and all our trips were very pleasant. So, whether you decide a weekend getaway (which is what we planned), a short out-of-town trip or an adventure travel, please consider bringing your child or children with you. Don’t wait out until they are older. Moments like these could pass you by, so cherish it while you can. #SayYesToTheWorld and explore new places with your kids.

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
