And What is there to See?

By Mridula Dwivedi December 16, 2012 12 Comments ,

I was once talking about a hill station I visited for which I was full of enthusiasm. It was slightly far away from a bigger well known spot in the hills. And I was asked, “So what is there to see?” The question caught me by surprise!

For me the biggest draw has always been nature! I quote from The Crystal Horizon by Reinhold Messner– “Nothing in life has brought me closer to enlightenment than landscapes. They have stamped me and are my mentors” (p. 203). Of course I can’t talk about enlightenment and all, but you get the drift?

And I was lucky, Palampur has nature and landscapes that awed me and captured my imagination. There was plenty of other stuff too but I thought I would establish the premises of my later posts right from the beginning!

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 quite my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
