Travel Tales from Mridula

Mother Daughter Day Out at Dilli Haat

Even before we started from home, Chhavi and I were bargaining hard with each-other. She wanted her hair braided right at the gate. I told her that she had to let me take pictures, including hers! The deals in place we headed to the metro station to go to Dilli Haat. It was the mother daughter day out!

Getting her Hair Braided!

True to her word, she got a single braid right at the entrance. She wanted henna on her hands too, but I cajoled her to let it go till the end, or else she would not enjoy roaming [...]

When it came to my notice that our maid's daughter was working in our home. (The small girl is 7 years old - her name is Saumya). I scolded both - maid and my mother for making her do small chores (peeling onions to cleaning furniture). But both had their answers ready.

In a polio vaccination camp - 1996

As NCC cadets in our high school(Anubhava Mantapa/Taralabalu), we had to do service in a polio vaccination camp.

As the name of hospital suggests, it is in old part of Davangere. At the venue, there were NCC cadets from many schools.      The

Indian Backpacker's Travels

Seshadri Dixit – the man who cycled across India

The sky is growing dark by the moment. The roads get narrower. The journey seems long and never ending. We traverse across regions that are sparsely inhabited but most of the time, I have just age old trees for company on the road . The hills part ways for us, the forests are enchanting, the rivers whisper along their course , while the roads meander around quiet sleepy villages. I am in Karnataka driving towards a little town called Teerthahalli, sandwiched between the spiritual Sringeri and the wild Agumbe [...]

Ananya Tales

India here I come

At the airport, I sat on the bench waiting to board my flight. I was looking at my cell phone going through photos folder. Such a mixed feeling, happy to meet my family after two and a half years and sad that I will be missing my friends back in Seattle.
Yes it's been 27 long months since I am away from home. When I first landed in  Seattle I didn't like it much. I was home sick for a long time. But today it feels almost like home.  

I believe it's People that really make a place. Luckily [...]

How to Choose a Day Pack

Typical day pack for trekking 
  On a recent South Col trek in  Ladakh, I noticed one of our trekkers struggling with the straps of his day pack. When I enquired, I learnt that the narrow waist band strap had broken and as a result all the pressure of the load was on his shoulders! The load was slowly pressing on the shoulders and causing this trekker a lot of pain and discomfort. I realised that the day pack  he had chosen was not suitable for trekking - it would have been fine for [...]

The Wanderer

Jumping across Jordan! So much FUN :)

Anyone who travels with me would know how much I love jumping, wherever and whenever possible. It's something that I started with my gang of bros, but now that I often travel alone or with new junta, I still manage to do it.
The recent visit to Jordan was no different and I had an awesome time jumping across the country with many iconic destinations that I had only dreamt about visiting. I somehow develop a special bond with the place when I jump with it :)
Here are some of my favourite jumps from [...]
