This Wanderlust Family Took 111-Day-Road Trip From India To France. #TravelGoals
Once you are in love with travelling, you just cant back off. The passion continues to ignite, no matter what’s your age or salary is. This is one love that will never bore you out. This couple from Bangalore is giving us a high-profile Travel and of course Relationship goals as well. I think I am in love with their travel story already, it’s time that you feel the same.
Guess Anand Baid & Punita Baid, had a long-lasting wanderlust which kept on igniting and they ignored. But once they decided to satiate it, it broke all the boundaries, rather it will be good to say it traveled all the boundaries from Bengaluru,India to Paris, France. The Bengaluru couple, made this incredible journey on road, starting from Bengaluru, Nepal, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, and France finally. The 11 country tour on a car is something, that needs a heart to do it.
The couple who are blessed with two kids, has been planning their holidays for a long time, but somehow nothing fruitful turned up. Punita had a 2-month holiday and her husband, had just quit his job, so nothing could have been a more perfect time to indulge in some serene adventure. Taking along their children was a task to, they go their kids exempted for 2 months from the school,and trust us, it’s totally worth it. After all, experience counts. The family who embarked their journey on 8th April, 2015 had their own share of difficulties as well. They had to sleep in their Fiat Linea for continuous 5 days during the earthquake crisis in Nepal.
Anand Baid, was frustrated because of the monotonous way of leading life. “I was frustrated seeing all the beautiful things nature and culture from different countries have to offer on television. Hence, the penchant for road-trips was stemmed in us for a few years now. My wife and I have travelled extensively on road, both in India and the US. We loved the experience.” said the ecstatic Anand.
The journey gave them some sweet memories, as well – here is one such story – In Samarqand, Uzbekistan, a Uzbek lady paid for our pizza without letting us know and she left. When we walked up to pay the bill, we learnt what had happened. We quickly rushed out to look for her and asked her why she did so – she said she was very fond of the Taj Mahal and would like to visit India someday and this was a small gesture. We thanked her and took a picture with her,” said Anand on his encounter with the lady.
What Punita has to say about the experience is that “We are now experts at charades. We can literally survive just with sign language,”.
