I think I’ve been to about 20 of these :o) But some that I haven’t been and that are on my list are listed here as well. We can go through it over Christmas – that should fill more than one evening in front of the fire. Have a lovely week you two!
We should go over it at Christmas! What day do you arrive and how long do you think you will be here?
Hello my travelling friends,
How are you doing back home? It must be a new feeling to be home after such a long time.
I am happy to see Mauritius on your list. We might plan it accordingly so we meet there.
We MUST plan it accordingly so that you can be there when we are there. Will be amazing to see where you grew up. What are some places in Mauritius that we should definitely see?
Obviously, Egypt is a must see. Just not right now and maybe not for awhile.
Most definitely a must see. I think now might be a good time to go to Egypt as there are probably some amazing deals… so long as you stay away from the areas of difficulty… but maybe a good idea to wait too… so many places to see in the world.
We must plan it accordingly. So when is the next travel starting?
Mauritius is around 2000 sq km and the whole island is worth seeing. The four corners of the island are diverse and have specific attractions.
East – where i grew up is warm and has the best lagoon to swim and under sea walk
North – hot and tourist place with Club Med and popular tourist seaside village Grand Baie
West – Dry with safari opportunity; dolphin viewing and wind surfing
South – rough sea carved through the rock – popular place Gris Gris and Pont Naturel;
The central Mauritius is on highland and suitable for tea growing; has a dormant volcano
I could talk on and on about Mauritius 🙂
Now i am feeling a little nostalgic
Hear from you soon
Sorry I missed your reply to this!
When will you be in Mauritius for us to come and visit/travel together? I don’t mean a specific date just yet, but how often are you going back home?
I’ve been to 80 of those, & maybe some I did not remember for sure.
You have quite a list, but I thought you’d already been to most of
those. My best suggestion for some of them, especially Turkey, &
the Greek Islands, is you really must take a tour due to the languages
& learning of the proper history or you will miss so much. I went
nuts shopping in the largest markets in Istanbul a few trips, and
eastern Turkey is some of the most interesting landscapes & rock
formations in the world. I think a tour to Turkey would be safe
enough now–check the U.S. advisories on all. Can’t do Egypt withou
doing the cruise down the Nile!! Jerusalem is a must to “follow in
the footsteps of Jesus” tour. Did you leave off Perth, Australia–a
fantastic place to do “day tours” and I loved the convenient, fun,
hostel called Club-Red Backpackers, only $15 A NIGHT if you stay a
week, & only $17 otherwise. They even picked me up at the airport.
Wonderful, polite, sweet workers there & I was the “grandma” of
the group!!! There are many “blue holes” around the world–one I
saw in Jamacia, one on Vanuatu Isalnd of Tanna, Hawaii, the list
goes on….. Of all those falls, & in America, my favorite by far
is Iguassu Falls that touches 4 countries, I think, & you can take
a cab around through all–Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay. Magnificant & the little long-nosed raccoon looking, Quati (Ka watch ee) will
run up to you down the nice paved paths, so save your airplane crackers & treats for them!! I found S. Africa quite boring since it’s all
so highly commercialized & many of the animals, esp. elephants have
died of AIDS we were told by our guide. Kenya is by far the best place (not sure it’s safe right now), and I have no interest at all in the other places in Africa you listed. Besides, Obama now has us into
their wars & we have soldiers there in western Africa as I write, so
I don’t recommend any of those areas which have many Muslim problems amoung their own people. I highly loved all the towns along the coast of Croatia–maybe my most favorite, most beautiful coast. Seeing a ballet in St. Petersberg & MOST OF ALL the summer palace of the Czars at Petrodvorets, & not far from there, lovely churches in Novgorod.
