The first family trip planned for 2020 will take us to Belize and Guatemala. We were looking for a one week trip for spring break that doesn’t required a long flight and meet all the members of my families requirements for an awesome vacation. I want to be close to beautiful the beaches, my husband wants culture and my daughter has to see animals. Belize and Guatemala offers the perfect mix that will make us all happy. Mission accomplished!
I am especially excited to be joining an overland and Fly-in Namibia Safari without the family. The trip will give me the opportunity to fly along the coast to view shipwrecks, seal colonies, abandoned diamond camps and sand dunes. I’ll also be tracking black rhinos and desert-adapted elephants. There will also be an opportunity to climb some of the world’s highest free-standing sand dunes at Sossusvlei and to visit the Nest @ Sossus as recently featured on Conde Nast Traveler.
My whole family fell in love with South Africa in 2018 and immediately started dreaming of coming back to this amazing continent. My 8-year-old daughter did some research and decided that she wants to see Africa’s highest mountain (Mt. Kilimanjaro), Africa’s deepest lake (Lake Tanganyika), the source of Africa’s largest river the Nile (Lake Victoria) and in addition she wanted a few days at a fabulous beach. Can you guess where this trip will take us? If you guessed East Africa, Tanzania you are right! We will explore famous game parks such as Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire while staying in a mobile camp to witness the great migration. We’ll finish the vacation on Pampa Island with some intense pampering for myself!
In order to have balance in life I'll be joining a fabulous yoga retreat in Argentina. I'll start the trip by experiencing the culture and food in Bueons Aires then fly to El Calafate to start the retreat. The first day will be a day of exploring the glacier at El Calafate and then we are off to explore El Chaltan while we find our namaste. I'll then conclude the trip with more adventure around the Iguzu falls.
Since I still have family in Germany the grandparents need to spend time with their granddaughter so I'll be visiting them and adding a few days to the city of lights, Paris!
For the last few years during my daughters fall break we've been going to a different island in Hawaii. This year will be no different! The island for 2020 will be the Big Island and it will be filled with beach, waterfalls, volcano's and mai tai's!
