Traveling to India? All You Need to Know on How to Get e-Visa

Traveling to India? All You Need to Know on How to Get e-Visa

Incredible is the word that comes to the minds of tourists who ever visited India. From its snow capped mountains to sun kissed beaches, from lantern lit villages to silicon cities, from flowering gardens to the deserts from tranquil temples to feisty festivals India has it all.  Across the world, India is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, vibrancy and diversity that add more colors to its incredibility.

Only the Rich Can Afford Long Term Family Travel- The Day Before We Become The Nomadic Family Again

Only the Rich Can Afford Long Term Family Travel- The Day Before We Become The Nomadic Family Again

People usually assume that the money just rains on us, pours over of like crystal lemonade; that we must be very, very rich to have traveled the world for three and half years. Whenever I hear or see a family travel, my first thought is also that they just have a lot of money. Otherwise, they would be back home (like the rest of us) working their butts off to just get by. We’ve written tons about the money issue [check out the Afford Family World Travel category] and how we are not rich [financially] and how we have all of these unreal tricks and secrets we discovered on the road that enable long-term travel. And so, now that we’re three days away from Nomadic Family life, again, we are asked cool things like: Where are you going this summer? What’s the plan? For how long? How in the world do you afford this?  Do Tell. So, here’s the answers plus a few words about what’s up around here...

How to Afford RTW Family World Travel: Extreme Frugality & Creative Solutions to Buying -Goa, India

We’d love to connect to you also on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on her path towards spiritual awareness, Gabi Klaf blogs about her family’s ups and downs in their now third year of non-stop budget world travel. This family of five has lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, hitchhiked throughout the world, danced with drunk Vietnamese at weddings, and hiked the entire Annapurna Circuit trek with a documentary film crew in tow. Gabi writes about the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, adventures and mishaps while globetrotting, and how bits of her soul remain in this small town and off the side of that river. She is a guitar-stumming, energy-healing, ADHD wind-loving scaredy cat. Hugely romantic, tantalizingly sweet, and hysterically funny, Gabi Klaf represents a rare Rubik’s Cube of family world adventure. We’re out doing crazy stuff and making our dreams come true, every single one of them, and a few more that sort...

Getting Psyched Out About Sweden this Summer- The Nomadic Family Travels Again

Getting Psyched Out About Sweden this Summer- The Nomadic Family Travels Again

So, we’re home and loving all the complicated equation of what living in Israel means. Mean girls doing mean girl things and our Dahnya rising as a diva heroine in facing it. The quietness of the Upper Galilee Valley; the joy of working in/being in our garden. Ignoring the news and creating our own peaceful haven; having it seep in from this conversation or that one and the fear it momentarily instills in us. Playing with our kitten and peacefully getting together with all friends and dear family and feeling another and yet another surge of love and joy that we are home. I’m having surgery, then going off to 6/7-weeks of healing in India; Kobi will backpack in Europe for a month this spring, and then, and then, and then… WE’RE OFF TO SWEDEN FOR THE ENTIRE SUMMER AND COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED! And as we near that, we look up more, read more, and do the happy dance more. What We Know So Far – Lots...

Family Travel Blog Question #38: How Do You Know What To Pack? Answer: We Don’t, Actually- Four Categories You Should Be Aware Of

Family Travel Blog Question #38: How Do You Know What To Pack? Answer: We Don’t, Actually- Four Categories You Should Be Aware Of

How do you know what to pack? We don’t, actually. That’s the truth of the matter. I wish I could make it more romantic or easier for you, but the whole truth is that we simply do not know. We figure it out as we go. You see, you think you’ll need all of this stuff that you never do, but you keep carrying it around for months and months cuz a- it cost you a lot of money or b- you think you still just may need to use it or c- it’s not taking up that much room anyhow. But, the darker (or more colorful, actually) truth is that we hold onto things from fear that makes all of those little ‘just maybe’s’ cumulatively a huge burden to tote around. You’d think that in month 30, we’d be “family travel blog experts”. I know. I thought I might win some award of wisdom by this point too. Yes, we’re wiser, but in terms of packing, it continues...

The Most Illogical, Unreasonable, and Absurd Things We Pack- Life on the Road Tips

The Most Illogical, Unreasonable, and Absurd Things We Pack- Life on the Road Tips

We’ve been traveling a long time now. We’ve seen all sorts of odd things, participated in amazing festivals, and have slept under every imaginable and unimaginable condition you can imagine. (Oh, oh, oh! New all-time high, which even beats sleeping in a bar with the kids, is now… a slightly up-graded whore house. Yes, I’m proud, and yes, more details of this world-schooling classroom adventure soon.) We’ve reached all sort of enlightenments and insights (most famously noted in I Know Nothing And 99 Other Things The Road Has Taught Me), have endangered our lives more times than we’d like to admit, have volunteered as a family around the globe, and melted down and broken enough to be considered seriously off-balance. We sometimes consider ourselves reasonable, sane adults leading our family to greatness; and sometimes feel like lost, bewildered children besides ourselves in self-doubt. So, when people ask us questions about travel, like what do you pack, what unreasonable things do you tote around, and what would you have done...
