I was thinking about my South Africa trip today, I actually think about it often. And what a wonderful trip it was! I had severe withdrawal symptoms till I went and trekked in Nepal. So I thought I have to post a few pictures from the South Africa Trip again.
Flying from Johannesburg to Mumbai
I loved the experience of flying with South African Airways. There are airlines with better entertainment systems but the crew at South African Airways is quite good. I had black tea at night and the lady remembered my selection at breakfast too! I like such personal touches. Another one laughed with delight when I asked for Amarula for drink. And I had enough movies me to last for the entire flight with them as well.
As the Dusk Sets in!
I am crazy about window seats and wing shots. And it was only after it became dark that my camera went in. I do watch a movie along with taking my pictures. And I do not like dirty plane windows as they mess up with my shots! You can see from the picture that these windows were reasonably clean. I had a great time by the window and with the movies on my flight from Johannesburg to Mumbai.

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?
