When I looked at the pictures I immediately realized this post is going to be more about 'food and me' rather than food at Makhan Restaurant at Mercure Dwarka! You will see in a moment why! When I look at food I wonder why I only look at dess...

Roaming in Singapore Metro or MRT as they Call it! #themetroproject

By Mridula Dwivedi October 12, 2017 20 Comments , , ,

I am a big metro fan, I am irrationally attached to metro rides! I mean what is really there to it? You get inside the train at one end and emerge somewhere else! And yet that gives me a high! I love using metros across the world. I use #themetroproject to capture my own social media updates! But I took a long time ...

The Life of an Indian Travel Blogger


The life of an Indian travel blogger looks glamorous from the outside. After all, I get to travel to exotic places and the bill is footed by someone else! I am immensely grateful for the opportunities too. But travel alone does not pays my bills and therein lies the rub. There is another aspect of the travel blog...

On this trip to Koh Samui I realized that it doesn't feel foreign to me any more! I feel at home in Thailand! I had no inkling that it will also res...

Barcelona on My Mind

By Mridula Dwivedi September 6, 2017 16 Comments , , ,

I landed at Barcelona on 15th May which is my birthday. I am now at that age where my body doesn't react kindly to flying out all night and missing on sleep.

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!
