Monday, September 23, 2013 it me you're looking for?

So I've been MIA since January...didn't realize it had been that long! But after a (very amicable) divorce and way too long without any trips on my calendar, I'm back and traveling again!

Shortly I will be posting photos and reviews of my July trip, which started as 10 last-minute but very planned-out days of relaxation in Honduras and ended up as 24 fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants days of fun and adventure in Honduras and Belize!

I also just got back from 2 fantastic travel conferences in Las Vegas, and will be traveling for most of October, spending time in Florida (Disneyworld), Grand Cayman, San Francisco, and 5 different Tahitian islands! So many more posts to come in the following days/weeks!

Cheers to anyone still checking this blog after all these months...thanks for hanging in there - and hopefully it will be worth the wait!

Overwater Bungalows in Africa!

Having trouble deciding between that South African safari or a beach vacation in a bungalow over the sea, but don't have the time or money to visit SA and Tahiti or the Maldives on the same trip?  No need to weigh the options for one more moment, thanks to Flamingo Bay Water Lodge in Mozambique! So go ahead, start narrowing down those safari lodges, and plan a relaxing pre- or post-animal-viewing stop in this amazing country!
 Only about an hour's flight from Johannesburg, South Africa to the town of Inhambane and a half-hour car ride will bring you to this eco-paradise.
 Flamingo Bay's barefoot elegance, laid-back style and atmosphere, excellent food and service, simple but lovely water chalets, and exotic setting would definitely be worth a splurge! However, the rates here could actually be more accurately described as a steal - $350-$400USD total for 2 per night, including daily breakfast and dinner!

Here, you can be as relaxed or as active as your heart desires...
Just want to laze? Spend time soaking up the sun on the deck of your chalet, jumping off now and then to cool off and snorkel in the clear waters below. After you've worked up an appetite, jump in one of the complimentary golf carts for the short ride from your chalet to the resort's restaurant and bar. A treatment at Flamingo Bay's spa is a fabulous way to spend the afternoon, and later, a sunset cruise is the perfect activity to cap off the day!

Want more adventure and excitement? Paddle around in a kayak, go for a horseback ride down the beach, take a guided city tour of Inhambane or a walk through one of the nearby small villages, try your hand at deep sea fishing, explore the local waters and islands by catamaran or traditional dhow, or take out a bike or ATV to visit one of the gorgeous nearby beaches!

No matter how you choose to spend your stay at Flamingo Bay, it's sure to be an unforgettable experience!
