I had planned to write a post on my favourite holiday destination. But then, I couldn’t decide which place was my favourite. But what a unique position that is. I have been to so many beautiful and/or interesting places that I can’t decide on a favourite destination. Travelling brings about many wonders – you learn about different cultures, taste new food and you may see a landscape completely different than what you’re used to. I may be able to choose a favourite when I’m 92, but for now I have quite a few favourites. But I thought I would share two of them with you.
Over 14 years ago, Husband and I went on our honeymoon to Kenya. We spent one week relaxing by the beach in Mombassa and then another week on safari in the Masai Mara. The safari was magical. We we were in wonder as we spotted so many animals, including cheetahs, rhinos, giraffes, elephants, and wart hogs. We even saw a pride of lions feasting on an animal they had caught. We went to Lake Nakuru – famous for its millions of pink flamingos (top photo). And we still joke about the afternoon we were eating lunch on the terrace and a monkey grabbed a biscuit out of my hand. It looked into my eyes, took the biscuit, and scampered off. Talk about a cheeky monkey!
And there was the time we took a 21-month old Moozles to The Seychelles. I’m originally from Seychelles, but I moved to California when I was six years old. I enjoyed showing Husband and Moozles where my family is from. We mostly stayed on the main island of Mahe. But we also had a few days in Praslin, the second largest island. It was extremely relaxing as island life is so much slower and less hectic. We went to the Vallée de Mai, a nature reserve where you can find the coco-de-mer (the largest seed in the world). We also fed some giant tortoises. And of course you cannot visit Seychelles without frolicking on the sandy beaches and swimming in the crystal clear waters.
There are so many wonderful places that I still want to visit. Hopefully one day I will see the Taj Mahal or walk the Inca Trail. Sadly, I don’t have an unlimited budget to travel the world. But, Exodus Travels is offering the most amazing once-in-a-lifetime trips.
