Travels in the Year of Unusual!

By Mridula Dwivedi July 24, 2015 22 Comments

It has been a while since I quit my job! The year seems unusually long! It feels like another era when I went to Chhattisgarh, the first trip of this year! How do I feel? It is too early to say really, but I have been having a blast! And I forgot to update on my travels after March. As it is Skywatch Friday today, I present you skies from all my travels after March.

Thailand (with Tourism Authority of Thailand)

This was my incredible fifth trip to Thailand! It was extra special because I was attending Songkran, the water festival of Thai New Year! I was quite amazed to see how easy it was to join in the fun! It was a public festival where you could safely enjoy with the crowd!

Goa (with Goa Tourism Board)

It is always fun to go to Goa! While I love beaches (after mountains) this trip was about discovering the beautiful houses of Goa and good food.

Sai Vishram Beach Resort with Byndoor (On Invitation)

The Backwaters and Sea Meet at Byndoor

I have never seen sea and backwater meet before. I was not ready to believe that someone can run a beach resort which is vegetarian and doesn’t serve alcohol! But they do and do it wonderfully!

The Trek with Chhavi (Personal Trip)

It is fun to trek with Chhavi. I was just asking her why does she likes trekking? She told me, I like it but I don’t know why. Just write, “I love you trekking.” And I think it just about sums it up adequately!

Kumarakom Lake Resort (On Invitation)

Kumarakom Lake Resort is fit for royalty, indeed Prince Charles stayed there for his 65th birthday! I spent a wonderful time with them, it was so beautiful it was almost unreal.

So this has been the journey so far in 2015! I hope the travel trend will continue for the rest of the year too!

  1. I like the shots out the plane window! Was just on a plane yesterday, but aisle seat. A guy a couple rows up was taking lots of pics out his window… next time I need to request a window seat!!

  2. Beautiful, as always… 🙂

    I’m sure you’ll travel more this year and we will enjoy your clicks… 😀

  3. You have had an awesome journey so far in 2015. I love the sunset Sunset at Jamadi, Himachal Pradesh and the Backwaters and Sea Meet at Byndoor 🙂

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