Funny Travel Lessons

My Initiation Traveling has been like my own personal eccentric Kung Fu master. When I began I expected to be gently washed of my narrow world view, but that is not what the teacher had in mind.

Here are six life changing lessons I learned on the not-so-glorious side of the road: The Original Position A friend of mine who lived in Korea for a year gushes (pun intended) about how much better squatting toilets are for the body, and I’ve started to come...

The Land That Offers All; Tanzania

Where does one begin when writing about a country in Africa, particularly a country as vibrant and alive as Tanzania? Upon arrival I was able to purchase my Visa at the airport in Dar es Salaam, but be aware that Tanzanian officials do not take US dollars that were printed before the year 2000. Dar es Salaam means “haven of peace,” and if you are cool you will know to just call it “Dar’ for short. In Dar there are museums, beaches and a collection of cultural influences that vary from Arab to Indian, German to British. A remarkable find in...

Within no time we had packed our tents and eaten breakfast, and then the flapping would begin! You learn quickly that as much as putting up your tent, ‘flapping’ is a vital part of the camping safari. Your dishes have to dry somehow and what better way than...

Close Encounters with Tanzanian Treasures

It’s midnight. A relatively peaceful night so far. As I turn over sleepily, absent-mindedly rolling out of my safe perimeter of flimsy mosquito net (supposedly protecting me from the dreaded tsi tsi fly), the silence is interrupted by a knock. Someone at the door? Who could possibly need me at this hour? Plus, nobody knows me here at Seronera Wildlife Lodge. I drag myself to the large window and peer out – there he was. The culprit. The window-knocker who rudely disturbed my sleep. A handsome giraffe, happily helping himself to his dinner...
