Henning wanted to explore the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and also experience more of Rajasthan in Pushkar, Jodhpur and Udaipur.
He was of course interested in the main sights and monuments like the Red Fort in Delhi, the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Amber Fort in Jaipur, Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur or the City Palace in Udaipur. However, Henning emphasised from the beginning of the planning process that it is more the locals and their stories he is interested in.
So we planned a typical two-weeks-travel route from Delhi to Udaipur through Agra and Rajasthan and made him stay entirely at homestays. Also we planned one night outside of Jodhpur in a small village called Chandelao so give him a feel of the rural life and a short break from the busy cities.
We also gave him tips for activities in each place like a slum tour in Delhi or a cooking class in Udaipur. This way he was able to meet many locals and make friends.
