Entrepreneur Tarini Jindal says her family means the world to her, and also makes for ideal travelling companions:

Favourite destinations
“London is constantly evolving and there is so much great design coming out of there. British architects have perfected the art of marrying the old with the new and it’s one of my favourite places.

“Tokyo is also on the list. I went there last year, and it just blew my mind. Their aesthetic and detailing are unparalleled; even simple things — like the whole city is Braille-compliant. And the people there are so polite and patient.”

On my own
“I did a solo trip to Shanghai last year. It was my first time in the country, and China was an eye-opening experience for me. I visited a lot of museums, saw a Yayoi Kusama exhibit. I have two young children, so it’s when I travel alone that I get the luxury of sleep!”

An unexpected delight
“I was in Puglia, Italy to attend a wedding. I didn’t expect to like it much, because it looked like an arid land with olive trees. But when I got there, it was spectacular. It became one of my favourite places in the world. The landscape is beautiful, and the stunted olive trees and architecture are stunning.”

Total recall
“I keep going back to London. It’s become a home away from home for me. There’s a lot of new energy. I love that it’s a melting pot. Time permitting, I would like to visit London a couple of times every year. Though it’s very touristy, my favourite thing to do in London is to visit the Borough Market. I don’t mind waiting in line for the incredible Italian food. Especially at this one restaurant, named Padella — they keep you waiting for around an hour, but it’s worth the wait.”

Satiate The Wanderlust In You

21 Dec, 2019
All the travel junkies out there, if there is one listicle you must focus on, it’s this one. With 2019 travel goals (hopefully) met, it’s time to start planning for the 2020 holidays. Booking.com has delved into global booking trends to reveal 10 of the top emerging travel destinations for 2020. Jodhpur from India has found its spot among the top 10 list, alongside some lesser known spots in Eastern Europe to under-the-radar spots in Asia. Commenting on the study, Ritu Mehrotra, Country Manager, India, Sri Lanka and Maldives for Booking.com said, “As we proceed towards a new decade, we will see travel becoming more and more sustainable and technologically-advanced, further aided by enhanced services and offerings that enable the modern day inquisitive traveller to experience the world. 81% of Indian travellers say that in 2020 they want to go somewhere that offers experiences they’ve never had before. From catering to their peaked interest in lesser known destinations to counter over-tourism, to customised travel recommendations, we want to ensure that the travellers have the most diverse selection of places to stay at as we help them prepare and plan their travel in 2020 and beyond.” Here’s where you should be headed to satiate the wanderbug in you.

Bucketlist
“I’ve got many places on my list. I would love to explore Brazil and Argentina as well as Australia and New Zealand.”

A trip that changed me
“We went on a trip to the forests of Uganda, to look at gorillas in the wild. We had to trek for about eight hours into the forest to experience the gorillas in their natural habitat. That was an incredible journey. Every holiday with family is great, but being amid nature makes it even more so.”

Road tripping
“I’ve been on one, but it wasn’t a very long one. It was when my husband and I drove from Florence to Rome.”

Best company
“My favourite travelling companions are my husband and two children. I think any trip I take with them feels like home. I wouldn’t choose anyone else.”

Get up and out
“I love to explore new cities and countries. I like to do all the touristy things like visit all the museums. I don’t like sitting in the hotel rooms, I like to see it all and experience everything. I am so enthusiastic to explore, that I actually get very little sleep on holiday.”

Travelling with kids
“My tip for travelling with children: Keep snacks and activities handy. I don’t give my kids the iPad. I have colouring pencils, crayons, paper, etc. We also have card games and Uno. We like being basic.”
