Sometimes getting caught up in the list of places to see & must do's take away the purpose of travel- a break from 'chasing life'. All the research and recommendations gets too overwhelming & some of them in reality are not worth visiting or just not the place for you.
An Itinerary trap should definitely be avoided if you are purely travelling for fun and relaxing trip filled with memories and joys from the place you're visiting. If you are in a new place, there is more than enough to explore around you than is mentioned in online blogs and not all places from their list needs your attention. It also helps to go with the flow on your trip and plan smoothly as you feel.
'You choose the places that's calling you'
No better way to put it across !!
Most important for me when I decided to go to Udaipur, was to be there and get to know Udaipur and its local highlights and this is how I did it.
First I selected a Haveli stay which will make you feel you are in Rajasthan 24*7 even if you don't leave the premises. I chose it by accident a bit away from touristy city centre but it turned out great as the quiet side after a long travel was much needed plus the wide angle view of Udaipur I was getting here was a sight to see.
The homestay owners and staff will welcome you, serve you best homemade food and you just relax in the luxury of Rajasthan's haveli atmosphere.
