Time out in Tanzania

For the last couple of months, I've been busying myself with preparations for an up-coming round-world trip that will take in South Africa, Kenya, the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Cuba and the U.S. I can now announce that my mammoth world adventure has just gotten a whole lot bigger with the addition of Tanzania to my already hectic itinerary.

After a short hiatus, I'm re-entering the world of guidebook authoring, helping renowned author Philip Briggs update the 6th edition of the Bradt travel guide to Tanzania. So for six weeks over May and June I'll be training, busing and bush taxiing my way around some of the least visited parts of the country including the South Coast, Lake Nyasa and the Southern Safari Circuit. Needless to say, I'm very excited about returning to Tanzania.

I guess the saying is true - a leopard really never does change its spots!

Congratulations! I hope that I will be in a similar situation soon! I'm going to put your blog on my page because I can learn so much for you. Thank you!
I'm going to Thailand for the first time, solo, starting this Friday! I'm so excited, I'll be there for two weeks, So far I have three hotels that I will review, 2 in Bangkok and one in Chiang Mai. While in Chiang Mai I will also take cooking lessons. I hope to do this full time! After 9 months of 40+ hours teaching adults in Korea, getting articles and photographs published and photographing for a major book, I deserve to work in gorgeous surroundings, the cooking school will be my birthday present to myself. You're an inspiration! I do not know what my next move will be but I hope that it is writing and photographing full time in Southeast Asia. I hope to be as great a writer as you one day! Thank you, again!
