Travel Journal (9/6/2018): Our Machu Picchu Adventure

The past few days have been one of the most amazing adventures I have had traveling.  I would say it ranks right up there with our safari adventures in Tanzania.  I don’t think I can find the words that accurately reflect how amazing Peru has been.

The city of Cusco is now one of my favorite cities I have visited.  It is such an amazing city.   After spending the day exploring the city, which I wrote about in yesterday’s journal entry, we got up very early today to begin our adventure of exploring Machu Picchu.

Travel Journal (9/5/2018): Adventures in Cusco, Peru

My favorite place we visited was undoubtedly the Plaza de Armas. The Plaza was absolutely stunning, with beautiful flowers, trees, and walking paths crossing thru the center of the plaza. There is also a lot of great things to see surrounding the plaza. With the Cathedral on one side of the plaza, the Compana de Jesus on another, there is no shortage of beautiful sights no matter where you look.

Travel Journal (9/4/2018): Exploring Lima, Peru

After taking some time to explore the coast, and do a little bit of shopping along the way, we saw some some people paragliding and decided to give it a shot. I thought the views of the city and the coastline were spectacular from the ground, but those views were nothing compared to what we saw from the air. If you have never gone paragliding before, I would strongly suggest you give it a try. It is such an amazing feeling to have the wind grab you and just lift you off the ground and into the sky.

Serengeti National Park Safari Guide

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is one of the most famous wildlife habitats in the world.  This large park in Northern Tanzania, along with its sister park (the Masai Mara) in Kenya, plays a pivotal role in the great wildebeest migration.  This great migration, which also features zebra, gazelle, and other grazing animals, brings over two million grass feeders thru the parks as they follow the rains each year.  It is quite an unbelievable spectacle to behold.

Ngorongoro Crater Safari Guide

Without any doubt, the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited.  Nowhere else in this world can you find such an abundance of wildlife, all within a relatively small location, to view all year round.  Beyond the sheer beauty of the crater itself, that is what makes the Ngorongoro Crater so special.  More than anywhere else, you are almost guaranteed to see the wildlife you came to see when you visit Ngorongoro.

Zanzibar Visitor’s Guide

When we took our trip to Tanzania a few years ago, we really wanted to visit Zanzibar while we were there because we had heard such amazing things about the island.  We were not disappointed.  Between the wonderful people we met, the beautiful landscapes around the island, and the interesting foods that we got to try, it was an amazing experience.  One that we are glad we were able to have, and one that we will never soon forget.
