Looking out on the falling snow on a blustering 25 degree day, the Brazilian Rainforest seems a lifetime away although I just returned this week. Fantastic advice thank you.

My husband thought I was overreacting with everything I was planning on taking (portacot, food etc.) but I think I now have him convinced. Many thanks for taking the time to post this very helpful information. I enjoyed looking at your photos and reading your article very much. Bali looks interesting and beautiful. I’ve love to explore nature on the island as well as the culture of the local people. Assess the physical demands. Don’t overestimate your physical abilities. If your trip will require 5 miles of daily walking in tough terrain you need to make sure that you’re up to the challenge. An adventure trip is not the time to begin a fitness program. If traveling with an adventure outfitter, discuss your normal fitness routine to ensure that you are in shape for the trip. Online travel forums can be an excellent resource for information from those that have “been there and done that.

When thinking about Madagascar, my perfect trip would definitely be focused on natural life. Towns are amazing and colorful, but the main attractive of the island is the exotic and endemic nature. It seems that an 80{a1d03cf561cb70ec23e2eb854e66ce028eeb773372cc7cae92569f38e2111a4e} of all the flora and the fauna is endemic, and a 95{a1d03cf561cb70ec23e2eb854e66ce028eeb773372cc7cae92569f38e2111a4e} of the spiny desert is endemic too. As many islands, such as the case of New Zealand, evolution has been able to take its own course apart from the main continents, so that the natural conditions created can differ a lot from inland. Most time this remote islands are a good paradise for birds, and when you travel to Madagascar you will also discover thousands of other native species living only there in the whole planet. I had a great opportunity to visit my youngest son, Andy, who spent 4 months at an archeology dig in rural Mexico. It was an opportunity to visit Mexico, seeing and doing things the average tourist would never have a chance to experience. But, I had to balance my enthusiasm to see Andy at an active archeology site with my concern regarding travel in Mexico and the fact that I spoke no Spanish.

It was that time; departure. Our exciting vacation was just about over, and the high of being pampered in a foreign country was coming to a close. Great hub.

Ok, so we were really hungry after the airplane ride, and I for one couldn’t wait to hit the restaurants and EAT! The food at Meliá Cayo Santa María resort was very good. We found most everything we ate at the buffet restaurant to be tasty, well seasoned, largely healthy, and at times, bordering on delectable. The variety was a little repetitious, but the existent selection was more than sufficient, so as not to have to eat the exact same thing over and over again in a one week period, if one chose not to. My “winter vacation” in the Philippines is almost over. Yet, I wanted to visit one of the exciting and fascinating wonder of nature in my home country.
