Go on a safari

I went to Tanzania on a week-long safari to the Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and Ngorongoro Crater. The landscapes were amazingly beautiful and we came very close to the animals. Our group saw elephants, monkeys, various birds, lions, hyena, hippos, giraffes, zebra, wildebeast, and a rhino. I am a big elephant lover, so I went googly eyed over the elephants. I almost cried when I went to Ngorongoro Crater. It was the most beautiful place, I’ve ever seen with the sweeping grassland, roaming animals, and walls of the crater surrounding the area.

Ballooning Over Egypt

Hot air balloons always fascinated me. I got the chance to go on a relatively inexpensive ride over the Valley of the Kings while traveling in Egypt. I did some research and read online that it wasn’t worth it. The review said, you can’t see anything and it’s a waste of money.

My experience was completely the opposite! I saw the Nile surrounded by mist, the Valley of the Kings, the beautiful fields of Egypt, Egyptian architecture from above, and the sunrise. Egyptians waved to us from the ground and we waved back. I will never forget the experience. It was so worth it.

learn to ride a bike
Breezy with a Tune in my Head

After many other scattered attempts when traveling, I just found my balance on an old bike that I tried to learn on 10 years ago or so. I found the courage to do laps around a local park loop. It was wonderful with the breeze and the Pokemon bike tune in my head. I was so excited.

It’s hard for people to understand, since most people learned to ride as a kid. People are surprised when I tell them I can’t bike. Not anymore :) I might be shaky on start up don’t have great confidence on the thing, but I can ride a bike!
