Among all the European countries Norway stands tall as the safest country among them. The homicide rate here is as low as 0.71 per 100,000 persons. Also incidents such as pick pocketing and petty theft are below normal. Absence of natural disasters and zero social or political unrest makes Norway more secure.   The magnificence of the capital city Oslo, Heddal Stave Church, Jotunheimen National park, Nidaros Cathedral, Lofoten and many other places are worth visiting.

International ranking are not meant to fail. For years Denmark is one of the safest and happiest place in the world, with its homicide rate as low as 0.88 per 100,000.

Believe it or not Japan is one of the few places, where even if you leave something behind in a public zone, you can be sure that you will find it, in the same spot anytime.

Japan also excites you to visit Kyoto, Tokyo, Nara, Takayama, Hiroshima (remember the 1945 atom bomb place?) etc.

Important tips while travelling with kids

  • Before planning your vacation, surf websites and make the best plan considering your kids too.
  • Most airlines screen babies to make travel safer. They are trained to handle your kids gently, so do co-operate with them.
  • Follow the restrictions regarding amount of medications, baby formula and food, milk and juice that can be taken.
  • Put sufficient things your kid might require in your carry bag. Incase of emergency or your luggage being lost this would come in handy.
  • To beat jet lag go outside and do something active and stay late that night with your kids.
  • If you are concerned about your child getting lost, then train them with clear instructions on what they should do.
  • Relish those lovely moments that you spend with your kids and family.  Have a camera and capture every small thing that you can remember forever.
