I am very fond of train journeys. But to think of it I think I like journeys because I am equally fond of bus and air travel too! The travel these days is I can’t stay awake on most of these trips. I am usually so tired that whatever is the scenery I can hardly keep my eyes open. Sometimes this is aided by the medicine I take for my motion sickness on mountain roads. Avomine makes me so sleepy. For example on this trip from Mussoorie to Dehradoon this summer, I could hardly keep my eyes open through the car journey from Mussoorie to Dehradoon or the train journey from Dehradoon to New Delhi!
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?
