interesting places I have been in Africa, to the bottom and along the top... not too much middle ground.
Save Place
Andrews Rd, Scott Estate, Cape Town, 7806, South Africa
no matter how much housing is built in South Africa there is always more needed. due to a large influx from Zimbabwe, and other neighboring countries it appears that there will be "unofficial settlements" for a while longer. not all housing in...
Save Place
Ma'an Governorate, Jordan
Petra Jordan is one of those places that you have to put on any bucket list. I went a decade ago and then dragged my husband there last year because "you can't miss this one" I told him. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade fans will recognize the...
Save Place
Botswana
It is true that a safari could be a "once in a lifetime" journey, but you will certainly hope not, once you have visited the "wildlife" at home in their environment. It is hard to describe the majesty of a herd of elephants or the size of the...
Save Place
Moroka Bypass (N12), Protea Industrial Park, Soweto, 1818, South Africa
The stained glass window in Regina Mundi Catholic Church in Soweto stands in tribute to Nelson Mandela. Close to the Hector Petersen Museum, the church was one of the few places where "colored" were allowed to congregate during apartheid. The...
Save Place
Rue De La Kasbah, Kairouan, Tunisia
we were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at a home in Kairouan, Tunisia. this lovely lady absolutely made our day. my travel buddy and I assumed she (being the grandmother of the family) was tired when she disappeared from the main courtyard of...
Save Place
Cité Brourmet, Tataouine, Tunisia
one of the best things to do on any trip is to meet local people. one morning near the town of Tataouine, Tunisia we hiked up to a mountain top berber village. no running water, it was carried up from a well down near the road. no electricity, her...
Save Place
57B Đinh Tiên Hoàng, Hàng Bạc, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
While the art of puppetry is common throughout much of Asia, Vietnam has the unique discipline of water puppetry. These puppets are carved from wood and then lacquered to protect them from the water. The stage for a show is a pool of water, with...
Save Place
Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
Probably the most visited attraction in the city, the V&A combines many elements of the greatest commercial waterfront projects around the world. There are plenty of draws for tourists (the Cape Wheel, helicopter rides, boat trips to Robben...
Save Place
Tunisia
Outside of Tozuer Tunisia in the middle of miles of dunes lies the now deserted but perfectly preserved set for one of the earliest Star Wars movies. While mostly just facade, the desert's lack of humidity has kept this place a virtual museum...
Save Place
Sisavangvong Road, Luang Prabang, Laos
I wanted to get as far away from "civilization" as possible. I thought riding an elephant in the jungle of Laos might appease that sentiment. Our safety briefing: "You ride with her, jump on back, ride in river. Water is wet." Uh...OK. They...
Save Place
Tamaqzah, Tunisia
The menu painted on the wall of the cafe in the park at the Mides Gorge is pretty much self explanatory. Nothing fancy- but with no competition out here on the Algerian border there is no need for extra frills. Come for the geologic wonder of the...
Save Place
رخدكا, Tunisia
These guys skipped the afternoon tea for "the love of the game" (and the water pipe too maybe) We were spending the night in a camp in the Sahara south of Douz in Tunisia. It was several hours away from civilization and these men worked at the...
Save Place
Rue De La Kasbah, Kairouan, Tunisia
The entrance to Kairouan (spiritual heart of Tunisia) is marked by four giant carpets (made of ceramic tile). If you have interest in handmade carpets (knotted or woven) this is the place in Tunisia. The souks here have everything you can imagine...
Save Place
Bab Bhar, Tunis, Tunisia
the two weeks my friend and I spent touring Tunisia after the Jasmine Revolution brought us many wonderful experiences but right up near the top of the list would be the incredible food we had throughout Tunisia. Wonderful salads, soups,...
Save Place
Rue Ahmed El Ayech, Tozeur 2200, Tunisia
Tozuer, Tunisia is a town known for its location near the Sahara, the great dry salt lake and the algerian border. the main shopping street had a lot of local handicrafts but this shop for drinks caught my eye with its colorful display of pretty...
Save Place
76 Orange St, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
Cape Town's Mount Nelson Hotel is a city icon. And who better to preside over the entrance than another icon? Mahatma Gandhi, who had a strong connection to South Africa (he worked in the country as a young man, and developed his political views...
Save Place
Chebika, Tunisia
After a long morning touring the nearby desert sandunes and abandoned STAR WARS sets we headed to the waterfall located at the Oases near Chebika for a respite and cold drink. From here we headed to the Mides Gorge near the Algerian border. We...
