There are many Travel Agencies in Delhi NCR that offer interesting packages for Venice, and other cities of Italy.
If the couple is crazy about food, beaches and fun. Then, Miami is the best place to be. It is famous for south Beach, cruises, people, Cubans, parties and lots of colours. Sea food is a must try out there though, but one should not miss out on plantain chips, sweet plantains, yuccas, mojo, and coconut water.
Kashmir and Shimla, India
These twin cities welcome the travellers with open-arms, to witness the splendour. From walking on the snow clad land to having a candle light dinner with authentic kashmiri cuisine, in the boat, these cities definitely add a lot to one’s memories.
Walk through the city and live the spirit that people out there are living with, especially, through the Hosier Lane. Get along for a long drive on the Great Ocean Road. Drop in at Laneway bars on the streets of Melbourne for a fun-filled ending to the day. But don’t miss out on the penguin parade, in Phillip Island and Eureka Skydeck 88 to watch the entire city, from there. Take a breath and watch it again from 88 and capture the moment.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently warned all the travelers via its Twitter account, to reconsider their travel plans (postpone or cancel), to the areas affected by Zika.
Zika is an Aedes Aegypti mosquito-borne virus which has raised concerns among the travelers and tour operators serving in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The virus has a huge potential in causing brain damage in innumerable babies in Brazil.
United Airlines have given flexibility to its confirmed passengers, to reschedule their trips to the Zika-impacted places or refund the ticket amount without any penalty or deduction. On the other hand, Norwegian Cruise Line Holding Ltd. and rival Carnival Corp have allowed expectant mothers covered with CDC advisories to modify their travel plan to a later date to shift it to an outside place.
Hilton worldwide Holdings Inc stated that it was working closely with local authorities of health departments to follow CDC prevention recommendations. There is a certain set of travelers who are still pondering upon their short visits to Latin America. Cancellations and rescheduling has hardly happened, so far – a carnival spokesman informed. The impact has been less.
Another set of travelers has shared their grievances on Twitter for not being able to get the amount refunded by the travel agents.
Whatever, be the reaction, Zika it seems that the virus is likely to affect the revenues of the travel industry.

Are your kids adventurous or simply sacred about it?
Whatever you may nod for, the idea of sending out kids to explore the adventure and get a new experience can never be doomed. Here are a few exciting adventure activities for the children that will make them go nuts.
Camping in an individual and shared tent always dons upon a different experience. It is more fun. They learn to stay together and alone and ways to mange situation. A lot of Travel Agents in Delhi NCR make it more exciting by organizing a completely entertaining campfire sessions with good food and music.
Some of the best options in North India for camping are Nainital, Rishikesh, Neerana etc.
Before you even join a trekking, strengthen the muscles of your legs and learn the knack of it. Else, you will get the pain of 20 kms trekking with 5 kms actual trekking length.
Nature walks or trekking always builds a good connection between the doer and the nature. Children learn a lot of the land (flora and fauna) and nature.
Flying fox and Burma Bridge:
This adds to another exposure to crossing the ridges, rivers, valleys, etc. All it takes is balance. Tour operators offer an array of other activities along with it.
Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Bikaner, Rajasthan offer options for riding colourful and nicely decorated camels. The feeling of climbing onto the camel’s back and sitting on it while it rises from its sitting posture is exhilarating.

It is about Santa Cruz Basilica.
Located in the peaceful Kochi in Kerala, this one is one of the 8 basilicas of India. It stands the history of 500 years when Portugese missionaries and another fleet arrived in India. They were welcomed by the then Kochi King. The Zamorin of Calicut declared war on Kochi. The first Portugese Viceroy built the church in 1505 using stone structures and mortar. The Portugese built this basilica which was later elevated to a cathedral by Pope Paul IV in 1558.
You will come across various such history-probing stories narrated by the tour guides arranged by the Travel Agents in Delhi NCR. These are interesting and informative.
The church’s architecture features two spires and a bright, pastel-hued interior that glorifies its beauty. It has a mixture of Indo-Eurpoean and Gothic art. The main altar was embellished by an Italian artist, namely, “Antonio Moshcheni”. You will find frescos and murals around.
The paintings on Hallar or the ceilings depict the lives of Christ, and a glimpse of life people used to lead that time.
It is an ideal place to sit and learn about the history silently and with peace.
So, whenever, you plan a trip to Kerala or Kochi, do check your itinerary if it covers Santa Cruz Basilica or not. If not, check with your Tour Operator in Delhi NCR, as to how to make it happen. But don’t afford to miss this beauty.
