The four of us have known each-other since Kindergarten (KG); we lost touch for some time till Facebook and Whatsapp reunited the entire class again! Back then if someone would have predicted that one day the four of us would sit in a plane and travel abroad together, we would have laughed out loud! But there we wer...

My favorite way to pass time in flights is to watch movies but off late I simply fall asleep. As I was flying via Munich, the immigration for the Scheng...

In the process I have hardly explored my own backyard. The most recent round of realization came after looking at some 'then and now' India...

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...

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!
