Our Visit to a Maasai Village in Tanzania

One of the neatest and most educational experiences we had when traveling in Tanzania last year was a visit to a Maasai village.  They have such a unique and amazing culture and it was really cool to be able to visit with them and learn more about their way of life.

We took a 4 day safari thru Lake Manyara National Park, the Serengeti National Park, and the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.  Along our many drives we would see the Maasai villages and the young boys out herding their cattle.  It was fascinating to see how they lived from a far, but we wanted to know more about their culture and way of life.

National Parks – Banff Visitor’s Guide

I believe that the Banff, Alberta area is one of the single most beautiful areas in all of North America, and I am not the only one.  There is so much raw beauty stuffed into this one area of the Canadian Rockies that it is almost impossible to appreciate unless you see the area yourself.  From its beautiful and majestic mountains and glaciers to its pristine and crystal clear lakes, the Banff area has it all.

The Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland

One of the more amazing castles that we got to see in Ireland was the Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland.  The castle itself has seen better days, as you can see by the pictures, but the location where the castle was built is absolutely breathtaking.  Talk about your prime real-estate.

Minnesota Beauty – Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls

The Great Lakes region doesn’t get the notoriety for beauty that the American West or the Atlantic and Pacific coastal regions do, but there are some incredibly beautiful areas in the Great Lakes region.

A few of my absolute favorite areas in the Great Lakes region are Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls State Parks in Minnesota.  Both state parks are located near the coast of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, and both state parks are absolutely gorgeous.  Even better, they are both in very close proximity to one another, so it is very easy to see them both in one trip.
