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