The great migration in Kenya, Africa.

We’re on our way to Kenya in Africa for our first Safari adventure. We’re on the plane now getting ready for a total of 3 flights and almost 30 hours of travel time till we get to our final destination. I can’t explain how excited we are to experience a little bit of Africa and the animals. This has been a childhood dream of mine to see all these beautiful animals in their natural habitat.

What a great idea! First, I’ll mention briefly where we stayed both times we visited Thailand…

So, naturally, we assumed just because it was a small island that there would be nothing to do. Boy, were we wrong…

Swimming with black-tip sharks was definitely an experience of a lifetime. Although, these are not comparable to the great white or the tiger shark, it can still be scary at first to jump in the water with them. Especially, if it’s in open ocean, where it is easily 100 feet deep at least. This is what happened to us when we decided to buy the tour.

The plane arrived to Hong Kong at 6:00am and it was too early to check into our hotel (JW Marriott Hong Kong), so we decided to leave our luggage in the hotel and started touring and walking around the city. We didn’t want to waste any time because our stay in Hong Kong was going to be very short, just 2 days and there’s just so much to see and do in Hong Kong.
