Finally I saw the Baobab Tree in Botswana

Finally I saw the Baobab Tree in Botswana  |  Okavango Delta, Botswana  |  Finally I have seen the BAOBAB Tree. Yes the same I used to read about when I was a child ” The Little Prince ” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This happened during our Helicopter ride by Orient Express at the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The Baobab Tree is also known as the tree of life, with good reason too. It is capable of providing shelter, food and water for the animal and human inhabitants of the African Savannah regions.  Continue reading Finally I saw the Baobab Tree in Botswana

ACELA Express Train All Aboard to Boston

ACELA Express Train All Aboard to Boston |  United States |  Trains are one of my absolute favorite ways of travel. So every occasion I get to experience them, it gets me really excited. I just love seating and watching through the window, looking at the small villages or towns, getting a grasp of areas I would never get to see otherwise… and not to mention if you get to enjoy a diner on a world-class train like Orient Express, sipping through wine or champagne, while the world goes by right in front of your eyes. I think most of you would agree with me, that trains are a much easier, sometimes quicker and most accessible ways to travel. Well today is my ACELA Express experience, and for those of you that follow my blog, you know that I am not a big fan of Amtrak Trains, but this time, although far apart from the European Regional Trains experience, I have to say that ACELA Express is a great way to travel.
