The stories featured here have been compiled from conversations across a wide cross-section of people. These are young professionals who are inclined to go on a vacation, but don’t have plan in place. Not always easy to do at that age, when you don’t have enough time, or money. Or maybe both.

A long term vacation plan such as timeshare could come way down a “consider list” for these professionals, but the ones we spoke to are willing to stretch a bit and invest in the good times.

Over to some of the young professionals we spoke to about work, vacations and the need to prioritize on work-life balance.

What I find absolutely shocking is the amount of litter we can generate – especially on vacation. Cigarette butts, water bottles, biscuit & chocolate wrappers, empty foil packs, paper plates, food remnants – the list goes on and on.

On a forest or cross-country trek for instance, we need to carry along a convenient dump bag with us that can contain litter the group typically generates – each one of us could also carry our own individual dump bags if that can make things simpler. I’ve seen litter being dropped from tourist boats along picturesque stretches of river – and this tends to
float or even sink to be swallowed by fish. (And that spins off a whole new set of problems . . .)

This was my first visit to Himachal Pradesh and I was looking forward to seeing a new state, as I believe each state in India has its own unique calling.

I was fortunate that I was at Kandaghat which is an offbeat destination and something that I personally relate to as a traveler.

The resort itself is nestled amidst the lower Himalayan range and it almost feels like it is in the midst of a hill range. Just like the location, the activities here have a lot to do with nature, like treks and more. I however enjoyed the bird watching here as I am a keen birder and was lucky to spot the red billed blue magpie for the first time.

The resort is designed aesthetically and looks like a palace with a nice white façade. Set within a landscape of blooming flowers, the resort never feels intrusive and blends with its surroundings quite seamlessly. In fact the myriad hued flowers and large variety of roses (in almost all colors) are a big attraction here.

One of the biggest challenges in the hospitality industry is the management of innovation – and this can be difficult in more ways than one. Because anything NEW calls for facility expansion, and related investments to carry it forward.

There are two good examples that come to mind here. The first is Bliss for senior citizens from Mahindra Holidays. The second is G2G Amritsar from DJB Infrastructures and Developers.  We will feature other good examples of product innovation in the weeks and months to come.

In one of our earlier features we shared tips on packing your bags when you go on a vacation – this month our feature story is on what you need to keep in mind even before you start packing your bags. We share a compilation of tips and guidelines you can consider that will ensure peace of mind and a feeling of total control over the situation.

We’ve heard of instances where the husband asks the wife some really “too-late-to-answer” questions. Did you switch off the lights in the bedroom? Did you turn off the TV? Did we roll down the garage door and sling a lock? (The questions go on and on, and can bring on worry lines even before you even reach your destination.)

So, we thought we would compile a list of tips that should come in useful – please make a mental note of these suggestions, or take a print out for easy reference. These tips come to you from people who are in related fields when it comes to customer advice and support.

Q&A – March 2018

If you’ve always wondered how members of your family can be on the same page on a holiday calendar, please read on – you’re not alone, when it comes to aligning everyone’s free time in the year.

Planning a holiday these days is a lot more than finding a free slot on your home resort website – within your preferred week / month in the year. It’s got to do with coinciding vacation time at school, and when your boss can allow you to take a break during the year. For others, even aligning dates between spouses is a big challenge. We have even come across people finding it difficult to go on a vacation because of elderly parents, or grandparents at home, or a pet that can’t be taken with you on a holiday.

At the end of the day, it’s about going on that vacation totally guilt-free, or worrying about things back home or at the office. So let’s talk to a few vacation seekers and listen to their side of the story. Each one of these people has a different story to tell .
