I had a fabulous one week in Palampur. The details will start pouring in. But let me start with their mere bus stand and a lowly puddle!
It happens only in Himachal Pradesh I think! I had a gala time. I stayed at the Holiday Home Hotel a lovely home based accommodation. And the full disclosure is that I was an ordinary paying guest and was not invited by the property. If you are a solo women traveler you would find it safe and comfortable. But this will be a full post later.
I managed to sneak about a few places. Also I was hosted on my first day by a local family and you find such hospitality only in places like Palampur. I was hosted because I was a friend’s friend. And that common friend I have only interacted online!
I reached home today so the posts will follow in a while.
But tell me have you ever seen a more beautiful puddle ever?
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!
