Whilst we where away on our sourcing trip in January it also gave us time to reflect and look at things that we would both like to do in the business and areas that needed attention. Our La de dah kids blog was something that lacked serious attention in 2014 .We have some great plans to make this place more of a lifestyle blog for all things kids and that includes a subject we are super passionate about which is travel . If you have a topic you would like to see featured on the blog we would love to hear from you ?
Travel has always been a huge passion both before kids and also now we have kids . Travelling with kids now brings a whole new dimension to travel . Seeing the world through our little ones eyes is one of the most rewarding experiences .
Our stop in India was 90 % work so our tourist tips will be limited however we did mange to fit a little site seeing in while we spent the week in India . We travelled with both our boys one aged 6 and one who turned 4 the day before we left- so our travel tips are relevant to these age groups.
Hopefully we inspire you to take the adventure with your kids - enjoy !
Places to stay :
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza : New Delhi Rohini we cannot recommend this place enough . The selection for breakfast was great . The rooms spacious and very comfortable.
Places to eat :
Due to our tight timescale we ate mostly with our suppliers families and within our hotel due to tired kids from a full day of activities .
We had a driver which we strongly recommend . We found this a great way to get around with kids and within a tight time frame which we had . But be prepared for traffic and lots of it . Short distances can take hours - but the country side viewing and animal spotting ( camels, monkeys , elephants ) makes driving in India an exciting adventure for the little and big kids.
Place to visit :
Delhi - we had a city tour with our driver in which we where lucky to have a taste of the sights . Our time in Delhi was super limited and with many road closures due to President Obama visiting it made it tricky getting from place to place .
We visited the India gate and Chandni Chowk.
Jaipur - So many exciting things to do and visit in Jaipur . One of the Highlights for us was the Amber fort . We had an elephant ride up to the fort with the Kids and they loved it! - It was a real highlight. The kids loved exploring the Fort the small passage ways and stair cases in the fort was a big adventure of hide and seek . The kids also got to see monkeys and a snake charmer which was high on their list to do and see why we visited India .
