But on weekends she plays tennis both in the mornings and the evenings but I could do nothing about that. Both of us have been to Goa before an...

Cadaques, Spain- I Would Like to Go Back!

cadaques-spain

As our car pulled in to the parking lot at Cadaques my first feeling was of relief. We had taken the winding road from the town of Roses and I get motion sickness on such roads. Though I did fine this time, all the same I was happy to jump out of the car and walk around. I simply love walking. As we strolled ...

Most of my blogging trips are work, they are hectic, I have to find good pictures, I need to take notes and generally see how the stories would work out. We are usually in a group which leaves the hotel in the morning right after breakfast, to return after only dinner. And then we get up and repeat it the next morni...

This year I have already clocked two personal trips too! So here is where my travels took me in the first six months i...

I remember walking by the torch light towards the beach. It was a windy night! We were at Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve in Oman. We had checked in earlier in the evening and we gathered in the lobby after dinner for our turtle watching session. Our Omani guide kept a brisk pace and we marched with him! He warned us ...

Mridula Dwivedi

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
