Day 1

I remembered the day when I booked my train tickets to Udaipur a day before the journey date. This normally doesn't happen to me because in the past I have made so many plans and didn't execute a single one of them. I live in Jaipur so there is a direct train to Udaipur and it takes 7 hours to reach. Soi had planned according to train time but it took me 11 hours to reach Udaipur. It was 1 AM when I reached Udaipur. In the train, I met a great family. They were kind. We got to know each other well. There was a baby with them so adorable. The 11 hours journey didn't feel long. The atmosphere of the compartment was amazing and familiar. And I knew that visiting Udaipur is gonna be the life-changing for me. Udaipur( the city of lakes), when I reached there, the cold breeze was confronting me and filling me with enthusiasm & I was already so excited, I wanted to go to the Pichola lake to imprints the beauty and peace of the environment. But I needed to sleep so I went to my hotel and the 1st thing I did in the morning was to take a run towards lake Pichola. I was astounded to see the view at 5 AM and it was a day before the new year eve. It was peaceful. All my tension about life was fading away, it was magical. I took the boat ride at dawn and all I can think about the water splashing, the sunrise. It was 5 degrees. There were children playing at the ghat, birds were chirping and I was in the moment where all I can think of was, I wanna married here, I wanna die here and live here. After boat riding, I went into a hotel to freshen up. Then I had breakfast " Rajasthani food". I explored different ice creams in the market. I went into the city palace. I went in there because the movie "YJHD" was shooted here. So I wanted reminiscence of the memories. Then I went to see temples and did some shopping. At night I went to see Karni Mata temple through rope way, which is near to the lake Pichola. It was the highest point in the Udaipur. At night you can see the whole of the city. And it was enchanting.

Day 2

The next day I was visiting places outside of Udaipur. Because I wanted to feel that city more and more. I just wanted to capture the sun, air, everything of Udaipur. At night, I went to Fateh Sagar lake. It was the new years eve. I was astounded to see the crowd. There were thousands of people there, with hot coffee in one hand were sitting near the fireplace. I went there I walked to 1 and a half mile and all I could see was there were people at every corner of the lake enjoying the new years eve with friends and family. I was very happy at that time. Because I wanted to be the part of this type of crowd for like my whole life and it came true. I never thought I would witness such a moment. It was a leap into unknown. People were walking, dancing, taking pictures, playing games. It was amazing. I stayed there until 1 AM. We danced literally on the riverside for an hour. Everyone was happy. It was the moment when I realized this is it. That is what I always wanted to be a part of. It gave me hope, happiness, a different perspective of life. It gave me moments that I would cherish for my whole life. And I would encourage people to have the same. So that was my travel story. Udaipur really became the life-changing moment for me. Now, whenever I feel nostalgic I go through the pictures and videos I took from Udaipur and reminds me of the happy moments. Reliving, again and again, feels like I have achieved something in life and looking for a greater perspective to achieve.
