And now January is done. How is this happening so fast? Soon there will be a eulogy for TPOL as 2098 is right around the corner. As I continue to defy death, I continue to post the best posts from each month. Here they are for the month of January:
Park Hyatt Zanzibar: Right Hotel, Wrong Location, But So Beautiful When you think garbage, you think Akeem. When you think TPOL, you think champagne [ Emirates a380 silent disco video ]. When you think Zanzibar, you think Freddie Mercury. Put it all together and you end up with this celebration.
DoubleTree Zanzibar-Nungwi: Miss You Miss You Baby
Gurl you’re all I need And I’m always missing you Miss you miss you Miss you miss you baby Miss you miss you Miss you miss you
Amboseli National Park: My Second Beautiful Safari
What’s the difference between my experience in Mara and Amboseli? When I went to Mara, the park looked like the jungle under Mufasa. There were zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, and wildlife relishing in the circle of life. By contrast, Amboseli was a death wasteland with Uncle Scar at the helm.
Forget Tokyo, The Best Sushi Is in Cape Town
Rolls aren’t exactly Japanese. Tourists are often disappointed when they get to Tokyo, and there isn’t a Las Vegas roll on the menu. Believe it or not, the Philadelphia roll was not invented in Roppongi. Like Chinese food, I prefer my Japanese food American (see Best Chinese Food in the World Is in Flint, Michigan). Cape Town has embraced the roll culture and put the rest of the world to shame.
Stone Town, Zanzibar: Eat, Drink, Then Get Out
One day or night in Stone Town is enough. Eat, drink, buy the tee shirt, then move on.
SAA A330 (JNB-CPT): The Most Comfortable Business Class Flight?
This is my third time on an SAA A330 (JNB-VFA and VFA-JNB). I stand by my assertion that it’s the best! Let the outrage ensue.
Kenyan Safaris Are Expensive: Mara & Amboseli Price Summary
Can I get more ad revenue please? The idea behind points trips was not to pay to travel. That only works if you have no sense of adventure or are too cheap to pay for anything that isn’t on the all inclusive menu.
