I've not to been to Africa.
I'd love to hear more about your trips, floatingintheworld ( I like that conjunction )
Africa was amazing. In Tunisia, a coach-load of us explored the country- staying with cave dwellers in their beautiful homes, visiting museums and galleries and exploring winding streets with the most intricate architecture.... we even stayed in a Bedouin campsite, travelling through the Sahara on camels. In Marrakesh, Morocco we kayaked on the river and visited the city, also rich in architecture.
In Tanzania, trekked through the mountains, staying in small villages and then spent some time travelling around Dar and staying with various families and communities.
In Spain, I always go trekking along the coastal paths and through the hills and the Giant's Tooth Mountain (this is a literal translation, I'm not sure what the real name for this is, but the locals refer to it as this from stories about a giant who punched out false teeth from a mountain, leaving behind rectangular gaps and some discarded teeth boulders in the sea). Water skiing, diving, sailing and other water and beach sports are always on the menu, as is proper Spanish food from tapas bars and restaurants on old cobbled streets, where noone speaks English other than the lady from the tiny English shop. And our town has the most fun Easter Parade with 10+ foot paella and beach volleyball tournaments...
Have done many exciting holidays here in the UK as well- from equestrian holidays in the New Forest and Isle of White to a Uk-wide road trip visiting universities. This summer we spent nearly a month camping in a working town in Cornwall- going down old mines, swimming in coves, climbing down the cliffs, eating the best camping food and card tournaments and midnight exploring. We've done a few of those adventure holidays where you do all the rock climbing and rope work and zip wire and things too. But I also do those short trips for smaller walks and interesting lectures and exhibitions and things.
We also did a road trip through Canada and the state of New York. The largest confectionery shop I've ever seen, the thousand islands, the CN Tower.... We drove through Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo and more.
I'm leaving out some other amazing travels, but this post is already really long.
Guineapig: I would definitely recommend holidaying in Africa. One of the things I've always wanted to do is a safari in Tanzania or Kenya or somewhere...
