Arugam Bay- A Hot Surfing Spot in Eastern Sri Lanka

By Mridula Dwivedi July 24, 2016 20 Comments , , ,

Truth be told I was tired when I arrived at Arugam Bay in eastern Sri Lanka. It took us longer to reach from Digana, where we were staying at the previous night. The route was beautiful. In fact the whole of Sri Lanka, in whichever way I have traveled, is scenic. Maybe it was because we took so many unschedul...

Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka


When I saw the beautiful pool of the Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels, it was a feast to the eyes. It was a long drive from Batticaloa, where I stayed the previous night, to Trincomalee. I was for a long time in a moving bus and it felt good to be on firm ground in the beautiful surroundings. I stayed for only one nigh...

Kudumbigala Monastery, Ampara, Eastern Sri Lanka


It was a 5.00 am start and if you ask me I am no fan of 5.00 am starts. Five in the morning is for being sound asleep but it was not to be because we had plan to catch up the sunrise at Kudumbigala Monastery in Eastern Sri Lanka. We were far away from the monastery when the sunrise happened and yet it was a beautifu...

Kerala in Monsoons

By Mridula Dwivedi July 16, 2016 46 Comments , ,

I wish to see a lot more of Kerala than what I have seen till date. But the deepest impression it made on me was in the monsoons. The rains would come pouring down, giving the impression of lasting forever. And yet they would clear as suddenly as they stared, leaving everything washed and fresh! Here is why I love a...

GoRoadTrip.Com- A Comprehensive Website to Plan Your Road Trip

By Mridula Dwivedi July 15, 2016 22 Comments ,

Road trips have always felt like too much work to me. You need to think of destinations, you have to figure out the route, you have to figure out the pit stops and what not. And then in our family, no one is a big fan of driving anyway. I am happy when someone else is driving. But when I have been in a fast moving b...

When Things Go Wrong While Traveling!

By Mridula Dwivedi July 12, 2016 26 Comments ,

I was walking around the London Eye, thinking about with pictures to take. I had my DSLR around my neck and my cell phone in my coat pocket, yes that is the English summer for me! I need a light coat to survive it. It was a bright sunny day. I could see the blue sky and the gorgeous Central London Skyline to go with...

I recently flew Delhi-Colombo-Delhi with SriLankan Airlines. I was going to Sri Lanka to attend the TBC Asia 2016 with Cinnamon Hotels. The fun started at the check in. I was given an envelope and there was something in it for me. I had ample time before I was to board the flight, so off I went roaming around T3. ...

Travel Tales from India & Abroad

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
