Brussels, Belgium; Day 1

When deciding our destinations in Europe, the kids chose Belgium as one of their picks. They were very specific that it was for the waffles and chocolate and they don’t really care about anything else. At least they are honest. Perhaps we’ll find some ways to round out their experience. Oh, and get some ofContinue reading “Brussels, Belgium; Day 1”

Paris, France; Day 1

Today was primarily a travel day as we left the French Alps for the capital city of Paris. In order to get there, we returned to Geneva and caught a high speed train which delivered us to the Gare de Lyon in a little over 3 hours. The kids haven’t had a tremendous amount ofContinue reading “Paris, France; Day 1”

Geneva, Switzerland

Today was primarily a travel day as we said goodbye to Italy and hello to a new country. We left Venice by boat (of course) and met up with the first of our three trains today. The trip from the Venice – Santa Lucia train station to the Venice-Mestre station was pretty quick. Enough soContinue reading “Geneva, Switzerland”

Casablanca, Morocco; Day 1

Today’s travel day had these Adventurers saying farewell to Egypt after three wonderful weeks. Our next destination is Morocco where we will wrap up our two months in Africa and the Middle East. The attractions of Kenya and Egypt are obvious. Morocco wasn’t always on our list but we added it because we wanted toContinue reading “Casablanca, Morocco; Day 1”

Aswan, Egypt; Day 1

This morning we said goodbye to our beautiful rooftop view of the Pyramids and the Sphinx. We won’t miss the room but will definitely miss the astounding view and the evening light show. After breakfast we headed for the airport and a short flight 550 miles to Aswan in southern Egypt. This ancient city isContinue reading “Aswan, Egypt; Day 1”

Cairo/Giza, Egypt; Day 1

We left the UAE this afternoon for the Egyptian leg of the World Tour. We arrived late into Cairo and then had a white knuckled ride through some hairy traffic in a cramped four door sedan. Horn blasting all the way. Five of us plus the driver made for some squished Adventurers. Our complimentary transportContinue reading “Cairo/Giza, Egypt; Day 1”

Amboseli, Kenya; Day 1

We have embarked on our second land safari.  This time we are going into the Amboseli National Park which sits at the foot of Mount Kilamanjaro. We have hired our prior guide Jacktone to pick us up from our Nairobi hotel and to take us to our bush camp and lead our game drives. TodayContinue reading “Amboseli, Kenya; Day 1”

Diani Beach, Kenya; Day 1

It’s been 50 days since the 5 Adventurers left Phuket, Thailand so it seems about time that we got back to a beach. We’re still on the Indian Ocean but this time on the western side in Diani Beach. Often tagged as the best beach in Africa and one of the top beaches in theContinue reading “Diani Beach, Kenya; Day 1”
