I’ve decided to add some posts about our travels. We have been to some pretty awesome places over the last few years. I’ll start with our most recent and work my way backwards over the next few weeks.
Most people have dream trips that they always want to go on. Africa was mine. I have dreamed about this trip for years. I think the main draw was the nature part of it. I’m a HUGE animal lover and have watched nature shows on T.V. since I was a little kid. This past August my dream finally became a reality. I had researched and planned this trip for about 2 years. After many days and hours I finally came up with an itinerary I was satisfied with. We would spend 6 days in Cape Town, South Africa, where we would visit the Cape of Good Hope, see the penguins at Bolder Beach, go cage diving with the great white sharks (something my husband wasn’t too thrilled about doing), go on a wine tasting tour, go to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner, go to the V&A Waterfront, and see Table Mountain. Next, we would head up to Zimbabwe for 3 days where we would see Victoria Falls. Our final stop was in Botswana where we would spend 6 days on safari in two different camps, one in Chobe and the other in the Okavango Delta. The trip was beyond amazing…better than I could ever imagine. Not only were the landscapes breath-taking and the animals magnificent, the people were amazing. Everyone we met was so friendly and I loved listening to their stories about their lives in Africa. I can not even put into words the awesomeness (is awesomeness even a word?) of this trip. I took over 3500 pictures on this trip and since a picture is worth a thousand words…I’ll just show you. And even the pictures can’t truly capture the awesomeness of the trip…but I’ll show you anyway. Here are a few of my favorites….and this was hard to whittle it down to these few photos because I have soooo many favorites.
I loved everything about Africa and I am sad that our trip is over. One day I would love to return. Where have you traveled? What was your favorite trip? What’s your dream trip?
