NatashaAfrica, Botswana, Explore, hashtagafrica, Zambia0 Comments

Welcome to Africa

We may have spent seven months in Africa this year, but we just experienced one of those crazy African borders. We finished up our time in Botswana and making our way north through Zambia. For the next month we will be hopping between Zimbabwe and Zambia! We had an amazing time exploring the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, but there was one thing that had been looming over our head – the Botswana/Zambian border. The hectic Kazungula Border Crossing and ferry are notorious. We knew self-driving over the border would go one of two ways – easy peasy or painstakingly difficult. … Read More

I want to Travel the World

We just crossed the border from South Africa over to Namibia. I am over the moon with excitement for what this trip through the Namibian desert will bring. However, it is also a milestone for me because I have now set foot in and traveled through 50 countries! I know that numbers don’t matter and many travelers choose not to “count countries”, but I have always found that setting a goal pushes me to travel the world. Long ago, I told myself I would see the world. Having traveled to 50 countries I have now been in more than 25% of the … Read More

The Cost To Travel The World

It’s officially been a year since we dropped everything, left New York City, and packed our bags to see the world. It was mutually decided that our twenties were too valuable to spend doing something we didn’t believe in.

So much does it cost to travel the world? The Cost to Travel the World When we left we had a decent savings account, but ultimately had no … Read More

Driving Abroad for the First Time, From Europe to Developing Nations

Driving Abroad The First Time

Driving abroad for the first time is a fear many have, but is it justified? I recall the ball of nerves Tasha and I were when we first rented a car in Germany, to drive down the autobahn. It was a foreign country, we were young, the car was a manual, and the roads had no speed limit. We didn’t even make it out of the parking lot before I stalled, having the parking lot gate close on me and requiring us to retrieve a new exit pass to get on the road. Not a good start. However, I lived and I’ve … Read More

The Best of Iceland

Iceland is a land that is just waiting to be uncovered. Intimate hot springs, beautiful glaciers, majestic wildlife, and striking waterfalls come together in this Nordic country and it is sure to dazzle any traveler. There is no right or wrong time to visit Iceland. Summer months yield 24-hour days with a never-ending bar scene, and long winter months provide complete darkness and the Aurora Borealis. Iceland is certainly not a place where you will be bombarded with mass amounts of other tourists like some of its European counterparts, instead, visitors will find the perfect amount of adventure, tranquility, romance, … Read More

Gulet Cruise With MedSea

Our week long sailing along the coast of Turkey and into Greece consisted of sleeping in tranquil bays, diving into turquoise waters, and dining al fresco under the stars. The Gulet is a unique ship to Turkish waters and is all about catering to the passenger’s needs, making for a splendid experience of … Read More
