Thinking of taking a trip to India with the kids? I bet you’re also asking yourself “Am I crazy?”
Yes, you are. Crazy for adventure, that is!
Regardless of where you go, India will blow you away. The food, the locals, the architecture, the animals in the middle of the road… It’s a huge shock to the system (in the best way) and a valuable learning experience for travellers at any age.
Most first time visitors India tackle the Golden Triangle. The cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur form a three-point round trip (hence the name). Because of the distance between cities, most itineraries will suggest taking at least seven days to complete the triangle. But it’ll be a jam-packed seven days. These are the must-sees for your first trip to India.
I was blessed with parents who really saw the value in travel. After our first family trip abroad to Thailand, I became obsessed. I was hungry for anything new and different. I yearned to be in the middle of a city on the other side of the world with a suitcase in one hand and google maps in the other, stumbling around trying to figure out where I was going; literally and spiritually.
