    Udaipur city in Rajasthan in North India is a historical place one likes to travel where monuments of forts, palaces, lakes, temples, beautiful nature, are importance sources of travel and understand the land and the people. The monuments are almost well maintained and people are friendly I felt.

    My husband and I are retired and we love to travel.Our recent trip was a six week road trip across America and back again..We visited family and friends on the East Coast and camped most nights..Some of the highlights were the free air show by the Blue Angels, the camp ground in Florida with an unfenced pond containing a 15 foot male alligator and 2 smaller female gators...the male did the gator water shake to impress the females.We visited points of interest like Niagara Falls and the Coral Castle.and Yellowstone where I finally saw 2 Grizzly bears and a Black bear with three cubs, a cougar, a flock of Dahl sheep and a herd of Moose along with Buffaloes, antelopes and Elk...One of the most fun of places to visit is the Big Texan on Route 66 in Amarillo...that is where eating the 4 pound steak in one hour competition is held daily..i finally got to visit New Orleans and see Key West...we had a great time at the Grateful dead Memorial Day party in New York but the best part of the trip was visiting family and friends...just to mention the saddest part of our trip was when we visited the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania...i wrote a haiku and posted it on the board that day..may humanity learn to live at peace someday..

    If you have seen The Sound of Music & loved it, then you must visit Salzburg, Austria. Mirabell Gardens is a very beautiful place and is featured in the song Do Re Mi. One can also take a Sound of Music tour to see the various locations featured in the movie.

    have an experience to a visit to Udaipur city in Rajasthan in North India which is a place of historical monuments, forts, lakes, palaces, temples, jain temples, and different cultural backgrounds and related monuments which I felt most important and nice to view. The Kambar fort which is the largest and spacious one is wonderful to a visitor and the manpower that built such a great fort in those days of poor communication facility is really amazing. Hundreds and thousands of people are visiting this fort far and near of the places including foreigners.Then Haldi ghati fort which is historical with so much legendary stories of war between the mighty mughal emperors and brave Ranas of Mewar. The legendary Haldi Ghati war is a part of History and moreover the story of Chetak the Royal Horse which saved his master's life in time. The lake palace and other different forts are also very interesting and to learn the history of India of the time. I loved the place and palances and tried to understand the history through them.

    It is a nice thing to see new places, people and understand the culture, living habits, people's movements, the business stalls, and hotels, cafeteria, and restaurant like avenues and different cuisines of that place which I am always likes to enjoy. Together with the most important part of my journey is to understand the historical backgrounds of the places that I visited and erstwhile rulers and transformation of the society, the affluence, as well as poverty, the affluent people and life styles, the poverty stricken communities and the reasons, strengthening the women power and its implications all are things to be known for a close observer of new places I think. The river systems, the water sources, the crime rates that disturbs the peace in the locality, the non governmental organisations working for the development and improvement of the places and people, also the attempts to make the folklore of the places in its originality for the future generation, also my concern when I travel to the new surroundings and people. The theaters of the new places, the temples, festivals, the different music instruments, as well as ornaments and its styles, the body languages of the people and their dress codes, all are much interested.

    i would recommend all poets to prefer a place made for poets. such as:
    island of jersey as the warmest spot in Britain
    choice for an autumn holiday
    India comfortable and majestic
    relaxing hill stations and beaches idyllic
    warmest welcome awaits at greater Glasgow
    with stunning sites and boats to row
    isle of man magical short break
    castle rushen and Victorian steam railway
