If you and your family loves to do sailing, then kayaking is the best way to ger closer to water and natural habiat of aquatic life. Kayaking is usually done in slow and calm water as you need to experience and explore the nature and surroundings.

List of things to keep in mind while Kayaking:

  1. A kayak should be equipped with one or more buoyancy aid which prevents a kayak from sinking, when it is filled with water.

And point down in notebooks. This way kayaking with kids can be very informative and learning experience. It is one of the best adventurous outdoor sport but if you are doing kayaking with kids then you should do it under the guidance and with proper safety measures.

I love traveling through flights whether it is for domestic travel or international one. Since air travel is the fastest means of transport, I prefer flights when I’m Flying with kids.

But in India, we can travel thru buses, trains etc. Despite being the most expensive means of transport, people prefer Flying with kids via aeroplanes as this itself is kind of fun for kids. I remember angel at 2 years flying with me to Goa, started talking to the air hostess and asking her “aunty when will aeroplane fly “and everyone surrounding us started laughing.

A ‘Blue Globe’ resting in my living hall was my de-stressor. Whenever I felt sad or low, I spun the globe rapidly and took myself to the Arctic Ocean and sat in silence near an ice-block, waiting for someone to take me back to my land. At times, I used to jump into the Niagara Falls to escape my sorrows. I grew up solving puzzles and playing with world maps and this made me realize my love for travel that included larger than life adventures so that I can overcome my fear. This took me on a journey to soak in the radical beauty of the world. So now, let me tell you why I love this world so much and why I chose to #SayYesToTheWorld. A World traveller don’t follow itinerary but follows only maps. I love the world not only as I travel to world but I feel that nature has imbibed a unique feature in me that I can’t be a couch potatoes.

  1. Swimming alongside colorful corals, eels and fishes in the turquoise blue water at Pattaya’s Coral Island, Thailand for the first time, and feeding the latter while their fins strike a musical chord with the water calmed me from within. Those innocent aquatic creatures living deep inside the water made me realize the beauty of God’s creation.coral island deep sea walking
  2. Tandem Paragliding at Nirvana Adventures in Kamshet, Pune made me fall in love with the world all over again. Looking at the world from a bird’s eye view made me realize how beautiful the world is. With the fear of heights in me gone forever, I realized how lighter I can be while flying in the air. It made me understand that the world is here to teach me at every step.

  3. Banana Ride at Goa taught me an important lesson about life; you don’t know how to swim but are being pushed into taking the ride because you are wearing a life jacket. You come out safely with mixed emotions as you cry and smile at the same time and comprehend that if there’s someone to push you then there’s someone to save you too! I now know exactly why I love the world and why I #SayYesToTheWorld. banana ride at alibaug
  4. Travelling in a desert on a sunny day in the summer, and realizing that you are running out of water can teach you the best lessons in life. However, suddenly finding a small hut selling chilled lemonade can bring a big relief and you can’t help but thank God for saving your life. But I prefer to say that I love the world; for there always exist some people to help you out.

  5. Soaking in the chilliness of the white marbles of Taj Mahal; one of the Seven Wonders of the World, while lazing in a shade makes you feel at home. A DSLR cannot appreciate the beauty of the Taj Mahal instead one can only appreciate the beauty of the Taj Mahal using the lens of the mind and the soul.
  6. I #SayYesToTheWorld because I can feel the splash of ocean water on my face every second whenever I do jet skiing in Goa and realize how happy a droplet of water can make me feel.

  7. A sunset I saw at one of the beaches in Kerala brought out the child in me who’s ready to grow up by correcting the mistakes.

    sunset at pallikare beach
    sunset teaches you that dark and happiness is part of life
  8. Travelling helped me make so many good friends that words alone cannot describe the love and warmth it holds.friends at goa
  9. The world is full of illusion and those illusions can make you wonder what if you were in a similar situation where I was in the Trick Eye museum in Singapore?Trick Eye Museum
  10. Sometimes you want to be like a monkey jumping from one tree to the another in search of fruits. I #SayYesToTheWorld because I feel like being a monkey after completing the longest Zipline in Wayanad Vythiri. zipline at kerala
  11. Life is full of ups and downs and the positive side is that there is always a finish line. And the relief of overcoming your fear is an other worldly experience. I overcame this fear at the Universal Studios in Singapore when I decided to board the most dangerous roller coaster ride. Initially I was skeptical whether I would be able to make it or not but the support and strength I got from my husband helped me overpower my fear.
  12. When I wanted to see the world with flower’s beautiful eyes, I went into the depths of the Garden by the bay and found that every flower has some thing to say to me, which is why I #SayYesToTheWorld.
  13. Every journey gives you a new experience and new experience gives you a new vision to see the world. I learnt this when I took a trip to Kerala. I always thought Kerala is what I see in Google but when I actually went in the interiors and explored the culture, the religion and the originality of the people, I realized one thing – What you see is not always the truth. That is why I #SayYesToTheWorld.  My travel inspiration has been always my love for exploration with open minded.
  14. I was always a simple and studious girl who didn’t know the badass world until I experienced the nightlife in the beautiful beaches in the smallest state of India – Goa. The people there were tension-free, stress-free who enjoyed life to the fullest as if there was no tomorrow. Sometimes you like that attitude of carelessness and want to tell your body, mind and the soul that everything is alright; just love yourself. In those moments I #SayYesToTheWorld. night life of goa
  15. When I went for a bungee jumping ride, I had the belief that life is full of surprises and shock; sometimes you go up in the sky and sometimes you fall back to the ground in horror. However, there finally comes a time when your life stabilizes and that’s when I #SayYesToTheWorld. bunjee jumping
  16. In our small world there are important people whom we know as our family. When I went for river rafting, it occurred to me that in order to keep our life balanced and the strength intact every member of our family needs to work hard. If a member fails, the whole family drowns in the river. That is the day I realized the world is really beautiful who teaches us so much from the very moments of life.
  17. There was a time when my world was dark but beach side peace and beauty taught me that time flows without ever stopping. On the same lines I realized that dark times will someday pass and that is when I #SayYesToTheWorld. Watching these fishermen working day and night tells me “girl get up and go “get ur own happiness from the world because the world loves you. fisher man working at beach
  18. When I tasted South Indian, North Indian, Thai, Singaporean, Arabic, and other cuisines I understood that my tongue has many papillae to savor many cuisines. Similarly my tongue has many words and I have to use it wisely because only then will it keep my taste intact otherwise everything will be tasteless.
  19. I love the world because I see many living animals who too loves us unconditionally wherever you go , be the birds or penguins or be the camouflage grasshopper. Even animals and birds says yes to world , how can I deny. Ostrich to Lion and camel to dog everyone is present because of some purpose, and that’s why I love the world.
  20. The most important thing why I love the world is because I get to travel with my family and cherish so many moments that will last forever. My daughter who is an avid traveler has already chosen her career as traveler at age of 5. She is the best reason why I love the world .Lets open up our mind and soul and explore the different arenas of life to discover ourselves as well as the world. I am thankful to lufthansa for making me realise why i #Sayyestotheworld.  Watch the video here

From Goa to Kerala to Mumbai to Gujarat my family has almost covered best and beautiful beaches of India especially South Western coastal lines. From largest to biggest beaches our vacations have been most of the times near beaches of India. Mumbai becomes too hot, that it can bake you in March to May. The major searches on my computer lead to beautiful beaches in India as we are travelling with kids. Beaches in India comes as saviour to beat the heat in summer.

As soon as vacation starts it becomes very daunting task for every Parent to handle their kids during vacation. Being a kid of wanderlust traveller my angel has become habituated to travel as soon as we get long weekend or vacations.  Best way to spend time with your kids for a small vacation is to beaches.  I think it is the best way of enjoy vacation with your kids as well as get some me time while watching sunrise and sunset.

In fact my daughter learnt her water cycle lesson on beach itself as I feel when you teach your kid at real time process, the concepts become clearer. Not only water cycle but also about aquatic animals, kind of sands, temperature fluctuations, kind of shells, turtles, star- fishes and so on. Recently when we went to Muzhappilangad longest drive in beach, we found a big white starfish which angel could touch and feel. We collected many shells to make decorative for home.  Other than beaches offer lot of adventurous activity which can be done with kids also. This is one of the aspect of my blog -Parenting while travelling.

Beaches are some of the greatest and most enjoyable natural places this earth offers us. Trips to beaches can be enormous fun and awesome hangout during vacations especially during summer vacation. To get rid of scorching sun and warming weather, chilling out on beach is the best option. Spending recreational time with family and living memorable memories with them is what everyone needs something to stay away from the stressful and busy life.

Playing on beach can benefit you and your Kids health in numerous ways:
  1. The beaches in India has a very rich source of silicon; it leaves the skin looking fresh and toned.
  2. Walking barefoot along the beaches works wonders, helps removing dead skin from the soles.
  3. Kids along with their family can also enjoy water sports available on beaches.
  4. On the beaches kids can enjoy doing other activities like swimming, cycling, playing outdoor games etc and can enjoy their leisure time under the open sky to the fullest.
  5. Doing several activities on the beaches helps kids to boost their energy level, helps increase their confidence level and also make them active and fit.
  6. You can also try new adventures available on beaches with kids, since trying something new helps kids gain a better sense of selfness.

 

Several precautions to be taking while going on Beaches:
  1. You should always carry a Sunscreen with higher SPF while you go to the beaches, because Sun, Sand and Salt together can damage your skin to an extreme if not taken care properly.
  2. You should carry enough water, energy drinks and snacks with you.
  3. Carry Mat, Hat or Cap or Umbrella whichever available to protect yourself from the direct effect of Sunrays.
  4. Wear Clothes which hide majority part of your body or else use Sunscreen after every few hours.
  5. Take First aid box.
  6. Wear flip flops or water shoes in the water.
  7. Always be aware of dangerous or poisonous jelly fishes on beaches. Stay away from them.
  8. Never cross red line made my life saver guard .

 

A day at a beach or a stay for few days near the beach area with family can be so much fun. These are just few of the many benefits of taking a family vacation with kids to the beaches. I hope this has motivated you enough to plan next vacation with kids to Beaches.

Women are the real architects of society. – Harriet Beecher Stow

Women’s day celebration

                 Women’s day is nearing and we all are getting ready to get empowered for the day, I really don’t understand why do we need only a day to show the love and respect for women on 8 th March only, where will 364 days go, don’t we eat food daily In-fact twice a day, right? Then why the world celebrates international women’s day on particular date. As a human being, only two formation is available by God majorly, men and women, then why we need to say this is women’s day and this is men’s day. So other days are meant for whom?? Any answer?? Funny bones are tickling in my mind now. I think in India women are still considered as inferior part of human being and hence exaggerated so much to celebrate on women’s day. But to my knowledge women’s day should be celebrated everyday.

                Inspirational woman

So to celebrate women’s day daily I am introducing to you this Women’s day to  my inspiration who is Dr Hemangi sane.  I believe that  Inspiration is always around us, you have to open your eyes to search around and get something into your life each day.

Inspiration is a motivation  to reach your goal.  Since my sister is homeopathic doctor but she does the job in Neurogen hospital which is specifically for stem cell therapy under  Dr hemangi sane. My sister introduced to me to her and after taking her interview, my goosebumps became active…
 Her achievement
             She is a inspirational women, a doctor,  a fighter and true inspiration. You must be thinking doctors are always inspiration for somebody but she is not only a doctor who treats the patient.  She is a one who gives hope to an ending life.

She was 27 when she completed her MD in medicine  in US.  She achieved  her goal in life and about to begin a new era in her life.

Struggling life
              But life is full up and downs,  surprises and shocks too. For her this time it was a shock when she started feeling week day by day.  She went to the best doctors in US and the diagnosis she got was a terrible shock and she suffered from a disease Called Motor neuron disorder (MND/ALS). The disease whose other name is incurable.  She was heartbroken,  lost all hope and tired of running around doctors to hear that ” no it is not MND/ALS”  but the fact is fact.  But the will she had to live life without giving up made the God change his destiny.  She came to her hometown India. Where she tried all kind of treatment available medical or nonmedical just to fight against  the God’s decision.
Finally she was towards her way to reach the ray of hope.
       She met a person who was enormously genius Dr Alok Sharma Neurosurgeon researching under Stem cell therapy.
With all lost hope she took treatment with no loss no profit benefits and to just fight against all odd and fact that she will be no more within few years. 
But she is a true fighter and that made Stem cells work for her. She is not improved but she is living her life since more than 10 years.  She started working with Dr Alok Sharma as a motivational speaker and then she joined as Head of medical officer and now she is also Head of research and development team. Not only she fight for herself but she is founder of Asha ek hope foundation where she is  helping other mnd patient and try to change their life and give new hope of rays.
For me she is a true inspiration and a fighter and give a message of never giving up in life even if you are taking your last breath.
I salute such women who fight for long and reach the Everest with a broad smile in their face. This Women’s day I wish to see such more women’s of our nation who has shown such tremendous fighting powers to defeat death.
