You know, it really just wasn’t what I thought it would be. But I guess it’s all part of the consequence as well as the blessing that travel is becoming less of a luxury and more of a normality. People hop on and off planes as thought they were catching the public bus to their … More The very lost ancient city of Petra
I most certainly didn’t plan my travels to Turkey in thought of a beach holiday. But there I was on a large dock at the edge of a cliff floating above the Mediterranean Sea. A Southern city called Antalya, an unexpected and pleasant little utopia. Landscaped gardens bordered the cliffs edge overlooking the city, an … More My very own slice of Turkey
With over 200 inhabited islands, how do you chose which to visit? Planning any trip always requires a considerable amount of research, but planning a trip through the Greek islands brings this to a whole new level. After much consideration, we chose Naxos, Paros, Mykonos and Tinos. The mix of the 4 islands allowed us … More YAMAS!!!!
Those of you who are familiar with my previous blog, I know, are aware of my passion to exercise my freedom of speech.

I planned for just a short stay in Dar – it’s a bit crowded for my liking and instead focused all my attention on Zanzibar and Moshi. Zanzibar for it’s beaches and seafood … More Give in to temptations in Tanzania
Pennies do count when you’re travelling for this long, and although I’m not cheap, I can’t say I’m not “financially responsible”.. See how classy I made that sound! Anyways, I do look up my options, I research flights, buses, taxis, public transportation, and any other means of local transportation if it means saving a … More Sometimes you get just what you paid for.
I always look forward to those destinations that don’t even show up on the map. Those small middle of nowhere towns, where it’s quiet, secluded and forever peaceful. Zambia was the perfect treasure box of nowhere towns. I found mine by searching google maps on super zoom mode and following the main road across the … More Mesmerized by Zambia
There was no way in hell that I was going to spend this much time in Africa without doing a Safari. Camping out in the bush listening to the lions roaring in the distance isn’t something I was about to pass up. Travelling through Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia it’s not as though we were out … More Hippos, Lions, Giraffes and I
