Semester at Sea Fall 1990http://www.semesteratsea.org/
I went on this voyage in the Fall of 1990. We left 2 weeks after Iraq invaded Kuwait. Out itinerary was; Vancouver, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India... We got to India towards the end of November. By then it was apparent that war was imminent so, unfortunately, instead of going through the Suez and up to Egypt, Russia, Turkey, Dubrovnek and Morocco (it was so long ago, I'm not 100% sure these were the places on the itinerary) we headed south and went to Seychells, Kenya, Brazil, Venezuela and ended the day before Christmas in Florida. It was, and still is, the trip of a lifetime. The experiences, friendships and learning cannot be beat.
Galapagos IslandsThis was the second part of a trip that Clark and I took in Feb. of 2006. The Galapagos are spectacular. We spent a week on a boat going to all the islands. It is a protected area at the equator where Darwin came up with the origin of species. We snorkeld with penguins, turtles and sea lions. Can't wait to go back and dive.
Camping safari in KenyaI did this as a part of Semester at Sea. In Kenya I decided to do a 5-day camping trip in Masai Mara. It was spectacular. We camped at various places within the preserve, you'd hear the animals at night. The guide made amazing meals for us each day and we saw amazing game. Even got to see a kill. We had a Masai native as our protector - used had a spear. You must do it! I'll try to scan photos and upload.
- 4This was the first part of our trip on 2006. Once we got to Machu, we stayed overnight at the lodge. We got up early the next am to watch the sunrise, and Clark proposed! So special. It's a very sacred and mystical place.
Jordan with the VP & Dr. BThis was my first trip to the Middle East and I was blown away. Jordan is wonderful, such an amazing land and people. Taking a helicopter to Petra (courtesy of the Jordanian Air Force) was such a highlight. Also, floating in the Dead Sea. Had yummy food, especially Hasham - a falafel vendor in the heart of Amman. I can't wait to go back.
