The Top Ten Instagram Posts for 2015

By Mridula Dwivedi December 30, 2015 34 Comments , ,

I joined Instagram quite late primarily because I started using smartphones quite late. I clearly remember I was in Finland with the (then) Nokia for their Lumia 1020 Promotion. My friends from Nokia actually created the Instagram account for me! But I am hooked now. So these are myΒ top ten Instagram posts for 2015 by the number of likes.

10. Kerala Backwaters, India

Double the joy!

As I am new to Instagram I have been posting pictures from all my trips and not just those that were taken in 2015. This was from a trip to Kerala backwaters in 2013.

9. Christmas Cheers at Radisson Delhi!

I was supposed to be in Rishikesh for a family vacation. Chhavi and Seshadri are there. But I got a lot of cold, so I stayed back, they went. And in the end the family vacation count is still stuck at lousy one for 2015! Goa was the only family vacation we managed this year!

7. Homegrown Sunset!

Homegrown sunsets can be nice too! I thought I would watch more sunsets if I quit my job. It has not happened till now!

6. Beautiful Batal, Lahaul and Spiti


Mountains and I, a love story!

Spiti will always remain special for me! This was Batal, I will always carry a bit of it in my soul.

5. The Dot on the Forehead of Qutub Minar Complex

This was a chance photograph. I had no idea the sunset would provide me an opportunity to click the dot!

4. Pheriche, Everest Base Camp Trek, Nepal

I left behind a piece of my heart there!

Everest Base Cap trek in Nepal has been my trip of a lifetime. It was so difficult, it was so beautiful! Pheriche was amazing, also because it was easier to breathe there

3. Sunset at Maafushi Island, Maldives

Once upon a time when I earned a salary and I could take international vacations!

As far as the beaches go Maldives it the most beautiful place I have visited. And it can be done on a budget.

2. Green Field, White Field, Uttarakhand

This is Talhauti in Uttarakhand. We went to sleep in a green field and woke up in a white one!

1. Stilt Fishing, Sri Lanka

A stilt fisherman in Sri Lanka, it is extremely touristy though.

The most liked photo of 2015 on Instagram is the Stilt Fishing from Koggala, Sri Lanka. It is beautiful to watch but it is quite touristy too!

PS. I got the idea for this post after reading a similar post on Desi Traveler!

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!
