VE goes to Africa

Yes that is right. I'm off for the first of my world travels this summer. I'll be doing a safari on the Serengeti in Kenya and Tanzania and at the Ngorongoro Crater. Haven't heard of these places? You should have; they have one of the last largest migrations of wild animals on the planet with well over a million animals.

I always consult the Hillman's guide. Haven't heard of it? It gives you the top 100 destinations to visit around the world (there is even a top 1000). A great site for the travel person. My destinations are number 4 and 11 on the list.

Later this summer I'll be visiting number 79. It's a daunting list. For as much as I have travelled, I've only been to 19 of them (soon to be 22). Guess I better get my butt in gear.

Anyway, in Africa I will be doing the jeep tours, the walking tours (ensuring I can at least walk faster than the other tourists in the event of a hungry lion), and even a hot air balloon tour. After the safari part, I'll be spending five days on the beach in Zanzibar. It's a little island off the Coast of Tanzania Africa.



And while I am there, it will look like this:

6, 84, 99

That's sad, very, very sad. Oh, and I'm dating a STUDENT, so it'll be a while before we get to go anywhere....
