Former Miss Intercontinental and Miss Universe Lara Dutta Bhupathi and her husband and winner of Grand slam title and Indian tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi love to travel with their daughter Saira, and believe it is important to spend quality time with family.
To keep their child happy, Lara and Mahesh, who often go for options by a famous vacation rental company called Airbnb, prefer homes with outdoor spaces and calming interiors so that when they enter the place they feel comforted and calmed.
"When we are on vacation, we want to make the most of our family time. Saira loves frolicking in the gardens and splashing away in the pool," the couple said in a statement.
It's a common viewpoint that family travel involves lots of luggage -- snacks for children, games to keep them busy, kitchen essentials, extra towels and clothes to last the whole vacation. Embrace home-stay concepts, and ensure that you can travel light and avoid the fuss of excess luggage.
Amplify family time with the pursuit of creativity. Keep children busy with immersive experiences, be it indoor or outdoor, and encourage them to learn something new, every time you travel. Thus, making them actively fit.
When travelling, there is no act more fulfilling than indulging in the local culture and traditions of a new destination. Seek insights from your host and discover each place like a local. This will help in inculcating new plans and ideas in order to adjust to a new place.
Thus, family trips and that too short trip must be decided and planned with the sole motive of spending time.
