In the end I decided to stay in London for 3 nights on my own. Visit Britain in India sponsored some of my tickets in and around London. Th...

I visited Stratford upon Avon and Anne Hathaway Cottage on the same day as Cotswold. Anne Hathaway Cottage and Stratford-upon-Avon were the last two stops before we headed back to London. My only experience of Shakespeare was to read Julius Caesar in class 12th as part of the English course. I found it a tough going...

If given a choice, I prefer small towns to the big cities. It is not that I do not enjoy the cities but after a few days I wish for a slower pace, a quieter place! So visiting the Cotswold region after a few days in London made perfect sense! I visited the towns of Burford, Bibury and Bourton on Water. It is diff...

I wonder what my fascination with the London underground is! I discovered it in 2007 on my first visit to England! I was mesmerized with ‘mind the gap announcements.’ I think I wrote about it then as well. Let's move forward to my recent visit to England this year. I had an Oyster Card and Google Maps; I was ...

London Underground, Oyster Card and Google Maps- A Perfect Match #themetroproject

london-underground

When it comes to sense of direction I rank really low. I heavily use Google Maps to find my way around, at least for the last two years now. Before going to England I went on a sponsored trip with Google Maps in India. I learned many few useful tips and tricks there. I was looking forward to use them in London, par...

I went to Dreamworks Tours Shrek's Adventure in London by as soon as it opened at 10.00 am. Shrek's Adventure is right next to London Eye! There were no queues at that time. Our first batch had probably 12 people. A lot of them were families with kids. As we were getting ready to go on our adventure to Far Far Away,...

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!
