And the Wait is Over!

Finally I get to travel! And that says it all! I am not traveling to a beach destination, it is in fact mountains again.

I hope to log in from Gulmarg but let us see. I have been amazed at my own response to this lack of travel and the capacity to sulk that I demonstrated. I have often told myself- ki life mein pasand aya tou kya aya, travel? I mean what purpose does it serves?

But then reading mountaineering books gives me hope. People who climb continuously keep asking “why do they climb” without ever giving a definitive answer. So I will be content traveling even though I will probably never understand why do I crave for it so much?

  1. I for one, never find myself short of reasons to travel. I believe it is relaxing – doesn’t matter that the job isn’t stressful, it helps me think – about planning the next trip…and so on.
    The itch starts on Thursday and I get to travel depending on whether it is the first or the fifth of the month. 🙂

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?
