While we’re in Africa I won’t be updating the blog – we’re not bringing a laptop because it’ll be one more thing to worry about keeping safe and one more thing to carry around in our packs. I’ll be keeping a journal and will share all the fun, exciting adventures and misadventures once we get back 🙂
For those of you who watch the show Departures, Scott and Justin go to the same places we’ll be visiting in Ethiopia in Season 3, Episode 8 – “Ethiopia: Saints and Snakes.” We’ll be going to see the rock-hewn churches in Lalibella, the castles in Gondar, and hiking and camping overnight in the Highlands. If you don’t watch Departures and you love to travel, you need to get a copy of this show immediately! It will inspire you to see the world. Scott and Justin are two very lovable Canadians and the cinematography is breath-taking.
After Ethiopia we’re heading to Kenya and going on safari to Masai Mara and possibly one or two other parks. We’ll be staying in Nairobi and Mombasa as well. At the moment, because I don’t have many preconceived notions or expectations for the rest of the trip, I am most excited about the safari – animals galore!!! But the whole rest of the trip is going to be pretty awesome as well, I think.
After Kenya we’re headed to Tanzania where we’ll relax on the gorgeous beaches of Zanzibar and do a little touring of the island.
Then before we know it we’ll be flying back to Canada!
