Well just like you all even Nisha was also thinking the same and that’s why Nisha was reading a lot of online blogs about travel, Kunal asked, “Why sudden travel guides and all? Hope you didn’t forget it’s Covid time my dear.” Nisha was expecting this answer so she replied, “Of course I know my dear hubby but it’s been more than 8 months now and both the kids are very frustrated in the house, top of it we live in a flat whereon kids cannot even see when it’s sunrise and when sunsets. That’s why I am reading all these so that we can take kids out.” Kunal agreed and joined her in this search.
