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 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?
