Travels in Africa 1990:Overland from Athens, Greece to Aswan, Egypt

In 1990, for our first trip abroad together,  we planned a month long overland trip from Greece
through Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Israel and Egypt.  Then Iraq went and invaded Kuwait about 3 weeks

before we were to set off.   So instead we overlanded and "oversea-ed" through the Greek Islands to

Cyprus and Israel before heading over to Egypt and down the Nile.   As we headed south, towards

the Sudan, things quite obviously became less Arab and more African, whetting our taste for more.

Egypt remains our only taste of North Africa.


Travels in Africa 1993-1994:Overland from Asmara to Cape Town

(Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa)

After Kevin graduated we took off on a six month jaunt in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Somehow, while on the road, this evolved into an attempt to overland as far as we could go.

While bad sailing weather and middle eastern boarder paranoia forced us to fly to, from and

around the Arabian peninsula, we spent some quality time in Oman, Bahrain and Yemen. (We

did  overland from Taipei, Taiwan to Karachi, Pakistan and from Asmara, Eritrea to  Cape Town,

South Africa.)

East Africa 2005: Safari on the Serengetti and climbing Kilimanjaro

(Kenya, Tanzania)

Let's see. We climbed the highest peak in South America for Kevin's 30th. What seems right for his 40th? Kilimanjaro, anyone? And if we're going that far, why not take Zoe and Grandma along on safari?
