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...

After that we arrived at the Celler La Vinyeta soon. I have visited a vineyard in Khao Yai, Thailand too and I quite like the experience. Jo...

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!
