I started tweeting about a month back on Mondays about where would I rather like to be! So today after a particularly … whatever day I decided why not, this can spill over occasionally to the blog too. So this Monday these were the five places that look particularly appealing.
Pushkar: The nostalgia for Pushkar is obvious. It was a lovely mother and daughter trip! It is close to Delhi and it felt safe to us. We did fight, but this Monday I would rather be with Chhavi at Pushkar. On another note my daughter now has a passport! It is time to plan a trip abroad with my niece and her. I call them double trouble. About time that we went on a double trouble trip!
Helsinki: While I am daydreaming why not Helsinki! It was such a walking friendly place and I saw so little of it. Whatever I saw I liked it. I have a fascination for witnessing those long nights when the sun doesn’t go down.
Thailand: I could happily go to Thailand again anytime. When I was thinking why tropical fruits was the first reason! Then I also remembered all those beaches that I have not explored.
Udaipur: It is the sunset at the Monsoon Palace, Udaipur that stands out most in my mind. It is only for another view of the city from the palace I would visit Udaipur again! This Monday …
The Mountains: But more than anything else I yearn for the mountains! I want to try my hand at photographing such a star studded night again. I clicked this at the campsite of the Hail Himalayas. The only place I can remember having more stars is Leh.
So this Monday I would rather be at any of these places … And I didn’t mention Maldives and South Africa because I don’t miss them only on Mondays, I miss them everyday!
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?
