All parents will agree that along with helping their children grow up to be kind, smart and good human beings who will contribute to forming a better society, teaching our children the importance of our heritage is important as well. And, what’s a better way to do it than travel, right?
My readers and friends already know that Gauri, my four-year-old daughter, is my perfect travel companion. She loved our luxury vacation at Jim Corbett last year, as much as she enjoyed our offbeat stay in the Himalayas a few months back.
And here is a list of five World Heritage Sites that I’d love to take my daughter to:
1. TAJ MAHAL: There is nothing I want to do more at the moment than to take my daughter to Taj Mahal and witness it in all its majestic glory. I plan on taking her to Taj Mahal early in the morning and run around it in awe.
2. GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, COUNTY ANTRIM, NORTHERN IRELAND: It is a super coastal playground for kids who enjoy outdoors like mine does. It’s the perfect place to scramble across a mythical landscape, and walking here will be like a dream for my kid!
3. SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA. There is singing, dancing, high drama, and “Kids at the House” programs held here that make this architectural hero into one of Australia’s top family attractions. Most of the kids love it and so will mine I am sure.
4. COLOSSEUM AND ROMAN FORUM, ROME, ITALY: I am yet to explain the history behind this Flavian Amphitheater to my four-year-old; she will be amazed at this marvel of engineering and a symbol of the glory of ancient Rome.
Travelling to any of the above locations will require financial planning. I want to be able to take my daughter for trips very often, without putting a dent in my bank account.
This is why as a parent investing in a SIP Mutual Fund is a great move.
My husband believes in thorough research before picking the best mutual funds for SIP. And it’s best to do your homework, really. After reading up on a lot of schemes to find top SIP plans, we recently found out about the SIP investment plan called Sabse Important Plan by Birla Sun Life, and liked it a lot. Investing in SIP over a longer term helps to take advantage of the difficulties experienced by the market. Eventually, one can create a substantial corpus over a period. See some snapshots of the platform offered by Birla Sun Life.
There cannot be a simpler way to start investing in mutual funds!
I hope you’ll also check out some SIP plans for your dreams – be it trips with your family and kids, or a new car or a home. It is a smart way to invest your money, and you’ll not regret it.
Happy saving and happy travelling!
