Before I visited the Kargil War Memorial at Drass, Tiger Hill, Tololing Hill were mere names for me associated with the 1999 Kargil War. Only when I stood in the shadow of Tololing Hill I realized how close it is to the road. Hell, it is right across the Srinagar Leh Highway NH 1D! The battle was fought that close t...

While coming back we had a night to spend in Rome. I still decided to take it as I would get to explore a little bit of Rome. So, her...

I simply love traveling in Metro and trams. I often say, it is because I can't afford taxis in foreign land. But there is something more to it. I stand and click pictures of metro trains and trams continiously. It can bore my companions to no end, but if I see a tram or a metro, I have to stop! So, here I present th...

We spent seven nights in Budapest and that is just about the right amount of time to spend in the city. I could happily add a few more nights i...

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!
