I am writing this post on the behalf of my three years old daughter ‘KAREN’.
Born in Holy City: Amritsar, Punjab State
I was born on 16th of December 2014 in the ‘Holy City Amritsar’, Punjab (India).
Age – 4 months, explored City Beautiful: Chandigarh (U.T)
Ever since I was born, I just had to wait for three months at my birthplace and then was shifted to ‘The City Beautiful: Chandigarh’. I explored the botanical garden, Sukhna Lake, and Jayanti Devi Temple at the age of 4 months.
Age – 8 months, explored beauty of Mountains & Valleys: Himachal Pradesh
Perhaps because of my itchy feet or my parents’, I had my first experience of a short ‘Road Trip to Kasauli Hills’ at the age of eight months. I had been experiencing my first hot summer days in northern plains of India. This trip to hills made me feel better due to pleasant weather.
After my first encounter with the beautiful hills, I fell in love with them. My parents, who are also big fans of mountains, took me to the next road trip shortly just after a month. This time I saw beautiful landscapes and mesmerizing valleys of the district ‘Sirmaur: Himachal Pradesh’. This was my first full day road trip experience. I did my best to co-operate with my parents on this trip. I am sure they are proud of me to be a patient traveler and a little adventurer. 🙂
Age – 12 months, explored Historical places: Haryana State
I celebrated my first birthday and it was the time I visited ‘Pinjore Gardens: Panchkula’ near to Kalka, Haryana.
Age – 16 months, explored first Himalayan trek: Himachal Pradesh
Love for the Himalayas took us on our next trip to ‘Manali: Himachal Pradesh’.It was in the month of April 2016 and I was 16 months old at that time. This was my very first experience with snow at ‘Glacier valley’ on ‘Hampta Pass Trek’.
