A few years ago I was flipping through a magazine when I stumbled across an article on places in the world that are "must see" resorts/attractions. And one caught my eye so much that I ripped out the pages and kept it, saying to myself "one day I'm going to get there". As someone who's never travelled beyond the usual Disneyland/Hawaii trips, when I win that lottery I'm heading here.

It's situated on the western edge of Kruger National Park in South Africa. I'd have a hard time choosing between one of 10 rooms in the cliffside Rock Lodge, one in the rope-bridge access treehouse-style suites in the Safari Lodge, or part of the new Singita Lodge that is a 15 room compound that features glass windowed suites. Either way, it's a maze of elevated walkways that connect common areas and viewing decks that offer eye popping vistas of the savanna and distant mountains. Spectacular. There's nothing wrong with dreaming, is there?

Usual Disneyland Hawaii trips? Let me know next time you're going. I've never been to either (though I DID go to Expo 67).

well day I'll tell you about MY trips.

In short:

one was on a bus...the wheel flew off on the highway.

my ex was a nightmare on another.

Hawaii was good though...went with a couple of g/f's and we ripped the place apart. My fondest memory was my cousin and I doubling through a hotel lobby on a "borrowed" moped at midnight. Ah, the good ol' days. (Alcohol had a bit to do with our "decision making" that night)
