    I have a suggestion, at least I don’t think I saw it on the list- the Galapagos Islands! I’m trying to plan a trip when the sea turtle eggs hatch on the beach and those little guys make their way to the ocean. (bonus points for pictures of their tracks in the sand!) Suggestion #2- the Savannah. Going on a photographic safari, riding an elephant, helping to preserve wildlife in the African national wildlife preserves in some of their countries. Helping/working with endangered species any way possible. Lions, lion cubs, elephant herds, gazzelles, etc. These are two parts of the trip (if they make the list) I would LOVE to meet up with you guys for!!! Can you tell I’ve been looking into taking these trips myself?!? Let me know what you think! I hope they make the ready very awesome list you two have going! Mwah!

  2. We totally want to do all of these things! And you should DEFINITELY meet up with us! So fun!! xoxo

    • That sounds amazing! I’ve heard of people dancing with the Maasai Warriors – the article I read advises that you be “fit” because they’re a very active culture. It intrigued me. What is a Kenyan Matatu? We’ll have to check it out! Thank you SO MUCH for the suggestions!! I’ll add them to our list!
