Mothers play many roles – friends, teachers, confidantes, nurses – she’s the most important woman in any person’s life. In a country like India, mothers are considered to be on the same level as God – after all, they do give us life. Being a mother may look like a glamorous job. However, it is a tiring full-time job. Mothers are at work all days of the week and 24 hours of the day. There is no time for rest, forget about going on trips they have always dreamed of.

Mothers will always find time for their children no matter how tired they are

Road trips are fun because of a variety of reasons. These trips allow you to be more flexible – you do not have to follow any schedules or timetables. Plan a road trip for your mother, where she can enjoy the journey just as much as the destination.
