Hardly a Week and the Memories of Spiti are Already Fading

I know life has treated me really kindly and I really have no right to crib but one week into the plains and all these beautiful memories of Spiti have already started to fade, sigh… I realized it with a start today when I was worrying about trifles, like a perceived slight when probably none was intended, a little of this and a little of that. And how easy it is to forget that just a week before I was in the paradise!

  1. Nice pic, esp with the sun rays:)by the way, to prevent the memories from ‘really’ fading away, I’m going to crib more and more untill you tell us a detailed version of your travel :) :) Looking forward to it.

  2. Atleast u were in paradise! wud it be that if u were always there?! ;DGreat snap! It really looks like heaven.

  3. Just close your eyes and you’ll be back among those sights, sounds and smells…:)I can see from the photo, why you choose to describe the place as paradise.

  4. Priyank and Cuckoo, from tomorrow, I will start to write the proper posts. Thanks for nudging in the right direction.Smita, thanks for your comment, you have put things in perspective!Siddhu, I guess you are right but the problem was I was not even closing my eyes and trying to dream. But I am much more peaceful now.

  5. Backpakker, you could have added ‘reality’ to welcome back -)) and tis is a smiley as the colon key is not working at my keyboard.Pijush, I think I will be able to right it now. See my latest post and you will know why I am saying this.Akira, thanks for seconding Sidhu, I agree it is sound advice.

Travel Tales from India

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. 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 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?
