She has a versatile blog “Vartikasdiary – let the heart speak” where she writes about parenting, travel, food, relationships, short stories, poetries, social issues, and random musings.
I believe traveling changes a person a lot and when you have so many stories to share with the world it surely connects with everyone who reads it. The author has traveled several Indian destinations like Lucknow, Kedarnath, Amritsar, Rishikesh, Jaisalmer, Kodaikanal, to name few with a slice of Europe in her board.

Apart from sharing the different places, beautifully captured pictures of the monuments and details of the tour and helpful tips the author has also shared few very handy and useful tips to be taken care while traveling especially when you are traveling with kids.
Her Chapter, “Scary and unforgettable childhood memories of Himachal Pradesh”, literally gave me goosebumps as she narrates two such horrifying incidents crazy enough to scare the hell out of a person especially when you are at an unknown place.
The breathtaking narration of Alleppey and Kodaikanal’s beauty and divine hues of Amritsar will make you feel like visiting the place and the author has tried to cover every minute details for each place.
“As soon as I got down from the plane, I remember I told my husband, “The air is so fresh here”, as it was a pleasant welcome “, says the author when she moved to Poland in 2016, an Eastern European country situated on the Baltic Sea, popular for its medieval architecture and Jewish heritage, sharing the beautiful culture and places to explore in Poland.
Prague was her very first vacation with her infant twins and that chapter remains very special even though she had to manage two kids. The author has covered many foreign destinations with two babies by her side and to explore more you got to read the book.

I often hear people say that it is difficult to travel with kids and have seen families to avoid any travel just because of the fear of facing tantrums by their kids while the journey.
