Why Travel Tales?

Imagine this. You are travelling to an interesting place with your child.

See that beautiful sculpture?’ you say.

When can we go home?’ your child yawns.

Let’s visit the Musuem!’ you suggest.

Give me your phone!’ your child demands.

Familiar conversations? Felt frustrated at not being able to enthuse children on a holiday or keep them engaged during a journey?

Well..between constant food breaks and repeated toilet breaks, I don’t blame you for losing heart!

Its draining and hard to keep children involved all along.

That’s where India Travel Tales 4 Kids comes in.

Drawing from our fascinating fables and enormous epics, dramatic history and amazing geography, here’s where you will find all that you need to keep your child engaged as your holiday across India!

Moroever, when it comes to concerns relating to children, it’s a simple equation at work. Mothers trust other Mothers!

Keeping with that, I hope to offer mothers access to travel tips and ideas from other mothers. While the primary content for the site is written by me, I am happy to have other mothers contribute guest posts. So, write in to me if you’d like to share something related to travelling in India with kids.

I used to argue for a living. Now I write! India has been home and fascinates me no end. I love History - both natural and man-made. I enjoy engaging with children. I'm bitten by the travel bug. And I absolutely love Writing. I tossed a bit of all these in together and India Travel Tales 4 Kids was born! I also write on a variety of other subjects..for young and old, the serious kind and the profane! To check out my work visit www.mallikaiyer.com
