20 Tips for Travelling with Kids

Travelling with children on holiday can be a daunting task if you do not make the right preparations.
Here are 20 tips that will make your journey a lot more enjoyable.

kids
1. Keep aside some extra time
You need to always set aside some extra time because children love to explore. Always take into consideration factors like gawping, toilet stops, stalling, and tantrums.
2. Book ahead
Book hotels rooms ahead. In case you didn’t find a room you will have to keep on travelling. And with children melting down it won’t be easy.
3. Give them a camera
You can buy a child-friendly camera. This will keep them occupied and encourage them to observe their surroundings.
4. Be prepared for the climate
Children will be happier in a new environment if they are dressed comfortably for the terrain and weather.
5. For potty training pack pull-ups
During the potty training days public transport and planes can be nightmarish. You will have to carry potty on top of all your hand luggage, extra clothes and stinky, wet pants. Put them back into pull-ups on the plane.
6. Be app-y
There’s no need to cram a toy box, thanks to toddler-friendly apps. You can pack a magic scribbler and book, too.
7. Use public transport
Use public transport wherever possible as most toddlers love the novelty of travelling by bus, train and boat.
8. Invest in a child locator
A child locator (which the child can wear on a shoe or belt) will help you keep tabs on children at crowded places. You can keep the transmitter. You can set off the alarm if you lose your child and follow the sound to find them.
9. Keep bugs at bay
A hand sanitizer is a handbag essential. When you’re unsure of hygiene you can wipe your hands and even the cutlery in restaurants.
10. Don’t forget the medicine
Kids always fall ill during holidays. So pack Calpol as well as Allegra, which is good for allergic cold and sneezing. Also, carry band-aids and a thermometer.
11. Don’t let the children pack their own rucksacks
Most kids insist on packing their own rucksacks but always monitor what they are packing. Sometimes they will stuff all their unwanted books and soft toys and it might become too heavy for them.
12. Keep the activities coming
Have a collection of toys to be handed out once an hour if you’re heading out on a long journey. Tiny colouring books, handheld puzzles, stickers, etc will pass the time on a car journey or long flight.
13. Have a number of family games ready
They will come in handy if there are any delays in flights
14. Avoid sweets
Instead of sweets pack savoury snacks like cheeselinks, muffins, etc to avoid a sugar rush.
15. Encourage them to keep a travel journal
Ask your kids to note down interesting things they saw or food they had. This will keep them engaged. You can also buy postcards and ask children to write messages on them. Once the journey is over it would be great to read those messages
16. Remember the medicine
A small first aid kit is essential, especially if you are travelling with kids.
17. Brand them
Write your mobile number on your child’s arm while travelling through busy, crowded places, in case they get lost.
18. Check your passports
Children’s passports only last five years so check your passports at least a month in advance.
19. Remember the baby wipes
Don’t forget the baby wipes even if all your children are long out of nappies. They’re useful not only for washing hands, but also for wiping down restaurant tables and even cleaning toilet seats.
20. Engage and involve older children
Ask your children’s input while planning a holiday.

10 Essential Beach Vacation Beauty Products

All set to holiday in an exotic beach resort? For the big trip you need to decide what to put in your bag. Some careful planning is needed while preparing for a beach vacation. The climate in your holiday destination may be entirely different from your native place, and then there are space issues to be taken into account. Here are some tips for the ultimate beach vacation, which will keep you pampered and polished.

beach
1. Summer is here after a long winter break. During winter your skin is not that much exposed to sunlight. To look at least the beach bunny part you need a natural-looking self-tanner. There are tanners available for face and body. Pack it in your beauty kit.

2. Plan your skincare before you hit the beach. Sunscreen with 50+ SPF is a must. Most sunscreens will give you greasy skin so look for formulas that are “dry touch” that won’t stick to the sand.

3. You should not just carry a sunscreen but should also know where to apply it. Apply it on the lips and under the eyes.

4. When dealing with sun, seawater and sand the less makeup the better. Select a couple of lasting waterproof items if you’re hesitant to go barefaced. Waterproof mascara is easily available. They will give your lashes a boost without looking too made-up.

5. Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is the key while on a beach vacation. Look for multitasking products for hair and skin to save packing space.

6. When on the go always carry portable wipes. For night-time facial cleansing they’ll pull dual job. They also come in handy for quick cleanups on buses, planes and automobiles.

7. Carry some face masks in your handbag. Just because you are hitting the beach doesn’t mean you must ignore your beauty regime. They will give you an instant glow before a night out. There are de-puffing masks, eye-specific masks, and even those with oxygen-boosters and radiance-enhancing vitamin C. So make your pick.

8. To accentuate your tan, bring along makeup. Carry bronzers and highlighters for a beach goddess’s look.

9. With the basics you can never go wrong. Always carry warm shades, especially for your lips.

10. Normally, beach destinations will be humid, so steer clear of foundation meltdown.  For a mattifying effect apply an anti-shine serum. Smooth over areas that are oil-prone and the T-zone. Then apply a concealer.

World’s Most Incredible Deserts

On every corner of the world wide web the planet’s most striking forests, mountains, tourist attractions, and lakes, are showcased. However, the desert is neglected to a great extent.

A barren, arid land with little vegetation is known as a desert. In comparison to most other biomes, deserts are essentially uninhabited because of the unfriendly environment. One-third of the planet’s land area is covered by deserts. When we think of deserts what usually comes to mind is a sweltering and sandy barren land. But some of Earth’s deserts extend to the planet’s freezing zones.

Compared to the past, deserts are not so unwelcoming today. The modern means of transportation has made it easy to visit these unbelievable places on the earth.  Here is a peak into some of the world’s most incredible deserts.

Namib Desert- Southern Africa

The Namib is the world’s oldest desert, and was formed 43 million years ago. It is home to a wide variety of animals, which you will find nowhere else. The Namib Desert extends into Angola and South Africa.

Namib Desert-Black Rock Desert – Nevada

The Black Rock Desert, where you will find alkali flats and lava beds, is most famous for an annual weeklong event – Burning Man, which sees the construction of Black Rock City. During the festival Burners reside here and all traces of it are removed after they leave.

Atacama Desert

The driest non-polar desert in the world is the Atacama. A plateau that measures 600 miles in length, it is spread over Bolivia, Peru, Chile and Argentina.

Sahara Desert

The Sahara is the third-largest desert in the world and covers a large part of Northern Africa. The Sahara has been shaped by sporadic rainfalls and winds into a landscape of valleys, dunes, sand seas and flats. Water from the desert’s underground aquifers nourishes the oasis infringe on the dry area.

Gobi Desert

The Gobi spans parts of China and Mongolia. The Mongolian death worm is alleged to exist in this desert. Locals claim that it can kill its victim by discharging acid, and is two to five feet in length.

Negev Desert

The desert constitutes over 55% of Israel’s land area. This region has been settled by the Byzantine Empire, the nomads, Romans, and many others throughout the ages.

Mojave Desert

The Mojave is the lowest point in North America and contains Death Valley. It sits at an elevation of 282 feet below sea level. The boundaries of the region are marked by Joshua trees. The Mojave’s largest city is Las Vegas, Nevada.

Antarctic Desert

The least hospitable desert is Antarctica mainly because of its annual rain of around eight inches. There are no permanent residents in this continent.

Sonoran Desert

The Sonoran Desert sprawls across California, Arizona, and Mexico. The natives to this rocky desert are the organ pipe cactus and the saguaro cactus, which have federal preserves named after them.

Thar Desert

The Thar Desert forms a geomorphic border between India and Pakistan and covers 77,000 square miles. There are 25 species of snakes and 23 species of lizards in this desert.

Rubʿ al Khali

The centrepiece of the Arabian Desert, the Rubʿ al Khali, is also known as the Empty Quarter. It’s the largest sand desert on the planet. Due to the feldspar within the sand it has orange-red sand dunes.

Interesting Facts about Whitehaven Beach

 is situated on Australia’s Whitsunday Island. It’s Queensland’s cleanest beach, and is washed by turquoise, green and blue water. It has been voted the world’s top eco-friendly beach. Here are some more interesting facts about Whitehaven Beach.

whitehaven-beach-day-cruise2The impossibly white sand: It is seven kilometres of unbelievable white sand, which gives it a brilliant, near luminescent colour. It is the whitest sand you will find anywhere on earth.

A beach made of pure silica: Whitehaven is made of 98% pure silica unlike most beaches in the world. The silica gives the sand its snowy complexion and other unique traits.

Its unusual origin: The nearby rocks do not have silica, despite the fact that the sand on the beach is made of pure silica. This means that tides carrying the silica grains must have deposited the sand on the island millions of years ago.

Strict regulations:  Regulations have been put in place to keep the beach in its heavenly state. In order not to mar the posh surroundings dogs and cigarettes are not allowed on the beach.

The most photographed beach: The Whitehaven is the most photographed beach of Australia.

Beautiful fusion of colours: To create beautiful fusion of colours a tuning cove shifts the tide from sand and water of Whitehaven beach.
