Book Reviews by kids for kids satvika from bangalore Bookosmia

13 year old Satvika from Bangalore loves reading books and drawings.  She shares this essay on a dream holiday we can all use now!

 

===========================================================

People don’t remember years, they remember moments.

Also, life is a journey. Travelling helps you live twice. You get so many  unforgettable moments and so many stories to tell. It is a very crucial part of life, as it gets us out from our busy schedules. It keeps one strong and healthy- both physically and mentally.

Now, I’ll be telling you about one of the most amazing holiday spots of India- the Andaman Islands. This place is a must have on your holiday destination list.

 

Firstly, Andaman is an island. So road travel is not an option. You can either  reach there by plane or a ten-day cruise. I went there on a plane, and it was awesome. I could actually see the ocean waves from the plane! We landed in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman.

 

The temperature there was pretty high. This place has historic significance, as well as beautiful views. The Cellular Jail is the main attraction in Port Blair. This jail has a lot of importance, as the Indian revolutionaries were held here as  prisoners during the British rule. It was also one of the largest jails in Asia. The main attraction here is the museum which shows the hardships Indian  freedom fighters faced when they were held captive. The cell where Sri Veer Savarkar was held captive is also here. He was, and continues to remain one of the bravest freedom fighter. Later in the evening there is a light show which  gives us a detailed account of life during the 19th century in the jail.

 

From here, we headed off to Havelock.

Havelock is a beautiful place. The beaches there are a sight to behold. From  Port Blair, we had to take a ferry to Havelock. Once we reached Havelock, the  first thing on everyone’s mind was beach. And the beach in Havelock, Radhanagar beach, is amazing. Especially the sunset. It was so beautiful. The  water was also in all its spirit and the waves were so huge and awesome.

 

We  also went scuba diving. The sea world was so beautiful. We could actually go all the way down to the sea bed and touch the corals! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There is no way anyone can forget the feeling of scuba
diving. And near the beach, we have ice cream and chat shops. What is more amazing than ice cream, after playing on the beach?

 

After all this, we went back to our hotel and rested for the day. In the same  place, we have Elephant beach. Here, you can enjoy your day with water sports. You have banana boat rides, water bikes and many more. Honestly, if  you ever visit Andaman, Havelock should be there on your list.

 

From here, we set off to Neil Island. It is the perfect place to get your souvenirs. You can get pearls, spices, wooden idols, shells, ornaments, home décor and a lot more. Here, we visited rock arch. We had to walk our way up to the top most rocks, on rocks! From the top, the sight was amazing. We could see the whole sea from up there!

We also went to Bharatpur beach which was very calm. Then we did our souvenir shopping and came back to the hotel.

Overall, Andaman was fabulous. Anyone who likes the sea will love Andaman.  In fact, not only people who like the sea but everyone will like Andaman! It is so
amazing; I didn’t feel like coming back home.

 

This paradise is a must have on your travel destination list.

Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here! While COVID has locked us in, our imagination can still help us revisit all those lovely holidays! Welcome to my ‘Places with Sara‘ section 🙂

I cant wait to pack my bags and head out. Until then lets  read through these wonderful travel memories from kids. Lets keep our wish lists ready!

Read with sara stories for kids by kids Shay Bookosmia8 year old Shay Agarwal from Kolkata talks of his memorable trip to Mumbai, packed in with things he enjoyed! Shay is a  cricket-lover and interested in dance. He wants to become a
scientist, and make medicines for people to help him. He feels blessed to have a loving family

================================================================

What a hurry to Mumbai! It was already 8 in the morning and my bag was still  not packed. I was feeling so miserable because I had a flight at 12noon.My sister was hurrying me to pack.

 

My mom packed our breakfast so that extra time does not get wasted. My dad was trying to call up our driver, who had no plans of dropping by. We somehow  managed to leave on time, and reached the airport. There were only a few  minutes before the security check closed and we rushed across the airport. As we sat on our seats, I felt so tired and just wanted to sleep.

It was beautiful as we saw the sun setting before our eyes. We had reached Mumbai, and I was feeling extremely happy. We went to our hotel and rested that night. The next day was horrible! All my mom and sister wanted to do was go shopping, shopping and shopping. Dad and I were dragged around the
Chor Bazaar. All we had to do was stare at each other and dad had to pay out some money, not much, as my mom was a bargaining expert.

Another day we went to Juhu Beach and chilled for a bit. My sister and dad  went in the ocean and I made a castle at that time. It was so much fun, and later we ate Vada-Pav’s and other street foods!

 

The day we had to leave was miserable, as none of us wanted to leave. But we enjoyed ourselves a lot!

“My experience in Paris” by 11 year old Sai Shaunak M S from Bangalore #WorldToursimDay

2-7 |8+ |

Activities with Sara Places to visit BookosmiaHey everyone, Sara here! While travel is out of question, it is such a delight to read write ups from kids about their favourite travel memory, on World Tourism Day.

 

 

Here is 11 year old Sai Shaunak M S from Bangalore, take us on a virtual trip.

================================================================

My favourite tourist spot is Paris.  I have liked many places but Paris is my favourite.
We had an overnight journey in the aero plane. When we arrived at the airport, our tour manager was calling us. We went in the bus to our hotel room. We kept our luggage and had a brief  look at the city.
I got to know that Paris is called ‘The City of Light.’
It was a clean and organized city. For dinner we went to an Indian restaurant called ‘ The Bombay Villa.’ We had a lovely dinner and returned to our hotel room. The second day we needed to wake up early so that we could see everything. We had breakfast in the hotel itself.
Our sightseeing spot for the day was the Eiffel Tower. We bought some keychains and some miniature models of the tower too. Where ever in Paris we went, we could still see the tower!
The third day was my best day in the trip because we went to Disney Land! We were very excited to go there. But sadly we could not go to the Disney castle because we got late in a roller coaster.
Why did we get late in the roller coaster? That in itself is a story. We got late in the roller coaster because my mother stayed with me. Why? I was too short to go to the roller coaster so I had to wait out alone, but I was scared to be alone. That is why I asked my mother to stay with me. When my father and sister returned, my mother wanted to go on the roller coaster too but it had some technical issues so she could not go. We also went on other rides and even met Mickey Mouse! This was it on the last day of the trip.
I enjoyed this beautiful city and the experience.

Activities with Sara Places to visit Bookosmia

Hey everyone, Sara here! Today on World Tourism Day, its hard not to think about the Tourism industry, one of the worst hit by COVID19.

 

 

9 year old Navika Kharbanda from Noida refreshes all of our holiday memories by sharing a write up of her favorite travel!

Read with Sara stories for kids, by kids by Navika Kharbanda Bookosmia

Her creativity can be seen not only in her hobbies but also in her written and verbal expression. Her favourite book series is Junie B Jones by Barbara Park. She is a fun loving child who enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Navika is a student of Amity International School, Noida.

================================================================

Once I went on an excursion to Agra with my family. We went
by car. I carried a backpack on my back. We started our trip early in the morning. I and my brother slept in the car.

 

When we woke up we saw the breath- taking Taj Mahal in front of us. The Taj Mahal in Agra is world famous. We learnt more about this fascinating place from our guide.

 

By the time we were exploring this ‘wonder of the world,’ we felt hungry. We had sandwiches and went to buy the souvenir of the famous inlay artwork, wall hangings and coasters carved on marble.

 

It was almost bed time. My father had booked us in a luxurious hotel and we  rested there. As the next morning arrived, we freshened up and went to Agra Fort expecting a show, but unfortunately the show was cancelled.

 

We utilized the opportunity by experiencing the local delicacies and shopping. It was dusk already. We returned to the hotel and slept.

 

The next day it was time to bid goodbye to Agra. Soon after breakfast we started our return journey. It was the most memorable holiday ever!
