We all know how challenging and nerve-wrecking it could get when travelling with family. And talking about Indian families? Shit goes on to a whole different level.
Amidst the chaos and frustration and annoyance that travel along, is it all really worth spoiling the entire trip?
Here, we bring to you the 6 most efficient travel tips that’ll cut everyone in the family some slack on the go.
1. PACK SUPER LIGHT
How much ever you try to pack less, it just doesn’t work. But when with family, you HAVE TO make it work.
You don’t wish to get into fights over who’s going to pick the excess luggage right?
2. WALK EVERYWHERE
Walks are great if you wish to get some time apart. One, it saves a lot of money. And two, you get to explore the place to the fullest.
3. AVOID THOSE TOURIST TRAPS
If there’s one tip I’d like all the travel families to follow, it’s to “Avoid those tourist traps”.
They’re vastly overrated and expensive, and they do no good.
The more you take responsibilities while travelling, the more you’ll understand that it’s not stressful but fun.
4. SPICE UP THE HISTORY LESSONS
Travelling brings History to life. It’s always fun to get your research done so that you have some stories to light up the mood.
We know how awkward it gets sometimes when there’s no topic at all and suddenly everything goes quiet.
So the next time you’re stuck with awkward silence, you know exactly what to bring up.
5. DON’T FORGET YOUR EARPHONES
Earphones are a man’s best friend, I believe. There’s no such situation you can’t run from with your earphone.
The moment you know you can’t take it anymore, just plug them in and escape.
6. LEAVE YOUR EGO BEHIND
Everyone has a breaking point. And that’s normal. When travelling with family, misbehaving and crying will happen, so it’s up to you how you roll in with the punches.
How you react is gonna decide for them all, so keep calm, breathe in all the positivity you can gather, and breathe out the ego.
Hope the next time you don’t cringe at the idea of travelling with family, but have the best possible time instead.
