Now 2013 was clearly the year when we wanted to do very varied kind of vacations and hence now that we have done Tanzania, I have to say that Tanzania just the kind of variation we were looking for. Definitely a part of the bucket list that was conquered.

Travelled in February 2013

So first things first, this is the itinerary we followed. If I see the email chain, quite a number of emails ( 52 at last count) exchanged to finalize the trip but it was a super useful effort. In the end, the tour operator needs to know your exact requirements and by no means, I feel we are easy customers (as we do what i believe is quite extensive parallel research), but the end result was worth it, thanks to the team of ItStartedInAfrica.

The trip to Tanzania started on this exciting Friday evening when were supposed to catch the flight after office. Qatar Airways it was this time. Hong Kong – Doha – Dar Es Salaam  – Arusha.

Being the first time in a Middle Eastern airlines which are renowned for their exceptional inflight service, we were looking forward to experience it. And yep, they didn’t disappoint.

Travel to a new continent is being planned for next year (2013). We have never travelled to the amazing continent called Africa and we are looking forward to the great African Safari tour this time around, given that we have never done such a trip.

Africa itself is fascinating to us. Known as many names such as Dark Continent, The Last Frontier (now replaced by other nations such as Mongolia), or more recently, land of freedom (ironical to the  number of anarchical ruled states there), the continent is surely fascinating to many people for a variety of reasons. Of course, these vary from business to nature to wildlife to heath care etc.

So let’s roar ahead to experience the full trip details and pics here.

Mauritius is a perfect honeymoon spot. The place competes with nearby Maldives and Seychelles in terms of similar offerings. What you expect from Mauritius would be long white sand beaches, awesome water sports, very warm and English/French speaking people and some history. Trivia – what you won’t find is snakes – the island is made from volcanic ash and we are told due to this, snakes cannot survive in the island. The beautiful island is ideal for honey-mooners, romantic holidays or just plain relaxing get-aways with 5-8 days being sufficient to see the place and relax.
