  • Kenya & Tanzania travel tips

    #1 Posted : Sunday, February 25, 2018 11:17:51 AM

     

    Just got back from Kenya & Tanzania (February 2018) and offer the following tips: - Plastic bag ban Applies to single use bags (kind you get from a pharmacy or grocery store) NOT to zip lock bags. - Maleria meds Take with a meal, with some dairy - otherwise you might get intestinal distress - Dust Buy a lightweight cotton "gator", rather than a bandana or dust mask (I got ours at REI). - Motion sickness The roads are really bumpy; bring a patch or take pills if motions sickness is an issue. Also ask to go in the front seat, as you'll be able to see the horizon. - Camera The trip is so dusty you can't change lenses in the vehicle, so bring two cameras, or use your phone and one with a telephoto lens. - Go in early The flights to Arusha gets to the hotel at 1:30 AM (Amsterdam) or 3:30 AM (Istanbul). As the bag pull is at 6:30 in the morning and an 7-8 hour trip awaits you, having a day to crash really helps. On our trip they also had a unscheduled trip to the Cultural Center, which was a big hit for those that went. Enjoy! It's a trip of a lifetime!

  • April 2018 tour

    You will visit Margraten, the Netherlands American Cemetery (the only World War II cemetery for fallen U.S. troops in Holland), and it will be moving. The group will get a thorough explanation of the "Bridge Too Far" effort (and there are old movies on board germane to this area also). You will want to locate grave marker for a fallen soldier from your home state. Be certain to watch the movie, "Monuments Men," around the time that you visit Bruges since you will see the Madonna, albeit briefly. This trip was our first encounter with locks and canals. We spent late nights at the bow of the ship (in the Lounge with drinks in hand while nibbling snacks) watching the operations. I think that the crew was using the water to wash the riverboat's exterior as there was water splashing everywhere at some locks. It was a wonderful adventure.

There is no doubt that the United States has undergone a wave of heightened culinary sophistication over the last 30 years. Americans are more knowledgeable about food, and cuisine is considered a more important part of the travel experience than ever before.

It’s no wonder so many people take romantic vacations. Travel is close to the very essence of romance. What better way to ignite passion, or to celebrate it, than to run away together? When a couple is swept away by wild romance, it follows naturally that they want to go off together to some romantic setting, such as Rio, Paris, Tahiti, Hawai...
