The term backpacking is being popular with us, Indians since some years. The term backpacking means independent traveling with minimum cost, staying with basic comforts and priorities are set in this trip totally what you need to do in this trip.
In backpacking one is interested in whole journey itself rather than just hitting the destinations from tourist point of view. The journey may be the simple camping trip in a forest area for two-three days or it may be the long tour consisting of hotel bookings and roaming in public transport. I am saying here public transport because it needs low cost and safe too.
Backpacking includes a heavy bag which can be carried on the back which includes many utility things that we need in the trip. In backpacking trips it is advisable to carry your own things as well as the safety majors but also we shouldn't overdo it by carrying extra loads.
This backpacking trip can teach you a lot of things. We can get connected with nature more here and we can relax and free our mind from stress that has become inevitable part of our lives.
It can teach you to be confident when you travel like this and can make you realize the worth of spending and giving the time to own self.
There are backpacker groups also which can guide us with directions and hotel or lodge bookings and their experience can definitely is more useful to us.
These days backpacking trips have become easier than before because of the increased resources and the help groups which have formed to help each other through sharing their experiences and guiding us. GPS, Smartphone, steatite phones (in case of emergency) have eased up the situations.
If we are going for a long duration backpacking trip we should book our lodge or hotel bookings in advance which will be less time consuming and if we are booking a quiet earlier we can grab some additional discount. And it is all time fail proof thing to book our shelter in advance so that in crisis situations we have our planned place to stay back, it will save the stress factor here.
These trips are mostly concerned with where there is adventure involved as in trekking trip or a rafting and camping combination weekend surf. Adventure is the spirit of these backpacking trips.
Easy, low cost, adventurous, exciting these trips may sound but we need a proper planning of such a trips. If it is well planned and executed accordingly without falling for distractions coming along the way backpack trips can be the most memorable trips of your life.
Here is the list of some important things that we get to include in our bags while on backpacking trips.
- Survival kit
It is the best product any backpacker can buy which has everything that we need in an emergency situation to survive. It includes compass, sugar pouches, tea bags, soup packets, whistles, fire starter etc.
Now these following things are optional if you are going for camping or trekking where you prefer to stay on your own
- Sleeping bags
- Yoga mat
- 2 tents
- Small gas cylinder
Essential list is as follows
- Multi-utility Swiss knife
- Plastic cups
- Local maps
- Mountain boots (if we are going on a hilly area)
These small stuff look like are not important among the list but if we forget to carry them we get to know the worth of it
- Hand sanitizers
- Pepper spray
- First aid kit
- Soap strips
- Mosquito repellant
- Snow glares/ sunglasses

One should always do their research about the places we are planning to go to for backpacking trips and take help of the experienced ones if they have been to the same place before.
So pack your bags, plan your trip cleverly and neatly, take safety majors into consideration and Get Set Go for backpack trip these holidays.
Make the difference, try something new.
The most joyous moment in young couple’s life is the arrival of a baby. Lots and lots of preparations and arrangements are done for that phase. Routines are changed, priorities are changed and somehow your the sense of responsibilities is increased by cent percent, one got to be a parent to understand when it comes to being protective about your baby.
Parenthood is the challenging and tiring at a times. When we get tired from office work, we have weekends to chill, after fulfilling your career years there is retirement era where we are freed from busy schedules and workloads till then sufficient amount is earned, spent, invested and utilized but parenthood is something which you cannot turn your back to or plan retirement for that job. The compromises, happiness, teaching and learning complete the whole equation of the marriage.
It is assumed and right to some extent, that traveling when you have a baby is tedious job. It is heck of circus platform where you have to enjoy the journey, wish to see the places where you have gone at the same time maintaining your baby’s naps, mealtimes, hygiene and so and so. Well in our India, one cannot be happily traveling in a public transport with the baby because of the overcrowded scenes, uncomfortable for baby hence inconvenient to parents since baby will be crying and crying and cribbing and so they have to face annoyed, angry looks by co passengers. Hygiene issues are obviously there too!
So what can be done to make the journey with the baby comfortable and enjoyable? First of all lets vote for the need to travel even though you are having a baby.. I mean is it really worth it to think a lot and cancel the travel plans since you have had a baby? After some years it’s a kid’s preprimary school which cannot be missed and that’s why we can’t go traveling, then school and classes routine which shouldn’t be missed to sustain in the rat race of success.. The reasons and problems will always show up when you get out of your comfort zone. The point is are you ready to take a step forward and make a difference against the mainstream? Yeah, I guess so, that we can.
Where there is will there is way, and so if we plan perfectly our journey with the entire considered possibilities journey with a baby can be the most memorable trip of your life.
Rent a Car:
As we said the problem with the public transport like buses or trains for short distances is a questionable option, better go with the hire cars. You can travel at the speed you desire, no disturbance when the baby is sleeping, you can stop the cab whenever you want and of course you can take car seat for the baby. It’s a chair which is portable you don’t have to hold all the time; once the chair is fixed in the car you can enjoy your ride happily. You don’t need to hold the baby all the time.

Carry on with Rash Cream :
One of the other things that you got to take care of is rash creams. Temperature and humidity conditions at different places plus the travelling may cause some rashes so as a precaution we must carry some rash creams with the consult of your pediatrician.
Bring plastic bag set of Diapers:Diapers, wipes and the plastic bags one shouldn’t forget. It’s better to carry own plastic bags because the time will be saved of buying them at each required places.
Blankets. No mother would forget her baby’s favorite blanket in traveling. But let it be a short trip or a long one spare blankets should be packed too in baby’s bags as a spare, and for baby’s hygiene.
Feeding Utensils and Accessories:Baby’s bowls and utensils like spoon, bottles are important too, and which nobody can forget while traveling with a baby.
Toys/ Music videos :At the same time, one should definitely pack your baby’s favorite toys, you never know when and why baby can get cranky and the feel of her favorite toys may give her homely impact and calm. Even if baby doesn’t get cranky, we must carry 2-3 small toys; don’t we need our favorite book to read while traveling or favorite songs in mp3 player? Then let’s be fair with babies too!
It is definitely not that impossible or hard to travel with the baby. Book all of your traveling modes as in airplane tickets or booking of the cab which nowadays can be done online also. And they offer a great variety in the packages, your hotel rooms and you can give the idea to the hotels too that you will be travelling with the baby.
So don’t waste your time in thinking how can I travel now I have a baby or let’s wait till baby gets older a bit… because that waiting list of years will just go on and time won’t stop for us.
We all love traveling and those exceptional people who don’t, they either traveled with the wrong company who get bored or they simply didn't plan it well. But obviously this is my opinion but all I can come up with the generalized reason is this only...
We all strive for excellence then let it be simply cooking which started from just heating up and cooking well meat or fruits or vegetables in prehistoric times to now well garnishing methods, making it a five or seven course cuisine meal or let that be being just happy when people used to get just hired in a govt. offices to now where as attending all sort of performance enhancing conferences and being competitive enough for salary raise or better job options ahead. World is changing and so are we; those who don't change and adapt these changes are left behind just what Darwin has stated so in his theory of survival for the fittest for animals in his study of evolution. Our traveling concepts have changed also as with the time, aren't we striving excellence here also by planning it near to perfect so as to cover maximum places to visit in given time and making it more and more comfortable and safer at the same time?
Airlines have provided their services in affordable range for every class and we are using the maximum benefit of that. Traveling by air is often very less time consuming and with leisure. We can utilize the time we take out for traveling in visiting as many places as we can. But what about transportation from airports?? When we sit and plan about our family vacations or business tours or if we are planning the corporate business tour we have to think and plan taking into consideration the minute details. Well I won’t say transportation from airports is a minute detail since airports are generally located at quiet a far distance from the main city.

We can get the cab from airport also but then it might be time consuming to do on the spot without proper knowledge of what other options might be and there are chances that you can get fooled about the rates. These days’ car rental services are doing amazing job by providing us the facility to book a car online. For an example, clear car rental pvt ltd.
They have available in 210+ cities in India. We can book our car which we want by choosing from various options that they give and book it online. Even if we have to cancel our booking by some reason we can do the cancellation free. Their service is in budget and any traveler ranging from ordinary to global corporate travelers. We can book a cab in advance online and a cab will come to pick you up on a scheduled time.
Now why airport car hire services??? Major reason is rental price which airport facilities offer are usually high since they will be adding extra charges and different costs and its always better to compare the options available and decide thoughtfully. But from my side, vote goes to airport car rental services. The extra points for airport car rental services because we can book the car that we want as our cab for pick up and drop service in advance, specially to CCR pvt. Ltd. I can confidently say so about clearrental since we have experienced its service in Mumbai.
So let’s fly away with more experience and knowledge about traveling mediums.
Ciao soon with more updates..
