Thought of the day

Random travel things that interest me more than my readers: It looks like my Haiti trip will be in March, not January (though everything is confirmed now). It is becoming more and more certain that I will be in Italy this summer, though the precise nature of the trip – whether it is guided or winged – has not been determined. And I very well may rejoin members of my Kilimanjaro trip for my planned hike up Aconcagua in Argentina – but about 6-18 months earlier than I originally thought (that is, the end of next year instead of 2013 or 2014).

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

  1. i love this quote. So True!

  2. Wow – looks like a brilliant list of adventures! Kilimanjaro is on my bucketlist! Have been to Aconcagua, but not climbed – think I will add that too!

  3. Apparently this post was interesting enough to attract non-regulars.

    You definitely should do Kilimanjaro, Anita. I recommend using Zara Tours based right in Tanzania. Ask for Chombo as your guide.
