I would love to hear how your vacation went! How were all the arrangements—especially the hotels? Were there any wonderful, unexpected experiences—restaurants, views, side trips?—You get the picture!
Jack and Jan Haverty recount the following incident from their safari through the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania this year. This story is from their trip journal:
"Now the problem became one of how to rescue the table, chairs, china, silverware, Tupperware etc. that the lions didn't want. Elias and Astarik from the safety of our truck tried shouting and waving the machete that they kept under the seat. No effect. They tried moving the truck slowly toward lions. Nope. The lions weren't hostile; they were just indifferent.
John and Jan Haverty. Tanzania, 2001
Here’s another story from one of my clients that will warm your heart, about some of the benefits of using a travel consultant. An internet or airline booking service could never have resolved this situation! Peter writes:
