Limpopo, South Africa: Feeding a Teenage Hippo
Carol wrote to a friend:
“I want to go here and feed/pet Jessica!! It only costs $7.20. How often do you get a chance to feed/pet a REAL LIVE hippo?”
Only today was I made aware of your extraordinary web site! Through your site I am able to research the destination of my conference in Zagreb, make reservations for alternative lodging, book my air reservations and car rental.
In addition to the Hotel Fala, I have fouind a delightful accomodation in Old Town Dubrovnik for a relaxing stay after the conference. The prices are tremendous savings over what I might have booked and the lodging, especially the property in Dubrovnik are more than satisfactory — all for pennies of every dollar I might have spent without the aid of your web site.
Thank you trememdously,

Hungarian Wine: Back in the International Spotlight
Hungarian Wine: Back in the International Spotlight by Cindy-Lou Dale was quite possibly the best article I’ve ever read about Hungary and/or wine! She’s absolutely brilliant and I can only hope that my writing can be as descriptive and poetic as hers is someday! I wrote to her and told her so too. She’s a great find!!!

I looked up Healdsburg and came upon this site. I think that Healdsburg sounds like an ideal place for you to visit in September.
Here is a link to think about for our trip 🙂
Good info on “Iss-key-ah”. Let’s keep it on the itinerary.
hi, could not put in better words
Hup Holland! A Bike and Boat Adventure in the Netherlands
oh baby we gotta do this! A bike and boat tour through the netherlands!
This country is dripping with history, great food and inviting locals.
this is something I totally want to experience in life. I really want my feet to be pounded and slapped — I know it seems silly — but it has been on my mind for a couple of years. I am wondering if they have Korean bathhouses anywhere in the US. It sounds so good and
invigorating to me. Just had to share! Your goofy wants to be pounded -dirty ragamuffin xo
Hey mi amore! Can’t wait for us to bask in the beauty and charm of Lake Como.

Quebec City in the Summer Time
Here is a good website. We really enjoyed Quebec City the most. The Citadel, the Place Royale, and the Museum of Place Royale was amazing. Just 7 miles outside of town was an unbelievable waterfall the we hiked tothe top of. In Ottawa there is Algonquin Park and all the museums, but wedidn’t make it there. In Montreal…old Montreal was good with theunbelievable Cathedral of Notre Dame. We also loved the Biodome. It is in the old Olympic facility. Sorry it took so long for me to mow the grass…ha, ha.
This was very informative. Maybe we could look at next May or September.
This is not your daddy’s Palm Springs!

This is very helpful.

Paris-to-Dakar Bike Race
Hey Molly how cool does this look?
instantly thought of you and your next big trip. a new way of choosing a vacation.
I wonder whether this will ever be a reality for me. I’d love it.
This is a very good article which should give us useful tips as to where we might go.
mom – sustainablity is everywhere. check this out!
I am copyediting an autobiography written by an American-Italian lady who visited Lake Como in 1988. She is 83 years old. Because she has been wheelchair-bound with polio since she was nine, she did not see much of Lake Como and remembered only a boat ride and seeing the Alps.
I went to google.com to get more information about Lake Como and I am very glad that I did. Catherine Richards Golini has done an excellent job in enticing me to visit your beautiful and interesting Lake Como.
Please give my compliments to Catherine regarding her editorial. I could not stop until I read your whole website.
Hank Hawkins Las Vegas, Nevada USA
this is in new hampshire – found it because Bode was talking about the petroglyphs he saw over the weekend driving through the great basin from utah to ely. told him about my dream and he said that in south america they discovered a stonehenge while destroying the amazon jungle there. while looking for that i found this.
Interesting site with volunteer possibilities around the world. I chose to look at Namibia – hey if it’s good enough for Angelina & Brad..
Found this useful site about Polis. If you are going with the kids during hols you may find it useful.

Kashgar, China: The Market at the Top of the World
I think we should head up to kashgar for the weekend and then come down to see more of Urumchi. I would love to take that brief excursion to the dessert… especially to see the dunes. It is the second largest in the world after the Gobi. Looks as if there is a lot to see and do in Xinjiang.
I think this page is pretty good description.
We have now booked our trip to Kura Kura for September. There is very little information on this island in the Jawa Sea, so just hope we have made the right decision – the article was very well written.

“I must commend your team on this superb site. I have been searching for detailed information on McLeod Ganj/Dharamsala for a quite a while but was always disappointed by the superficial, hackneyed approaches I found on other sites. In one GO I found all the information I needed on GoNomad and was able to start planning my trip with a solid and realistic groundwork. I recommend GoNomad to every traveller!”

“I just wanted to say that I love the article, Mountain Biking in Moab, Utah. I have always wanted to go there being from Denver and I definitely think I’m going to take a trip this spring as recommended. I love the fact a bike shop was recommended as not to haul your bike and other things to do other than making it a trip just about mountain biking, but so many other things to do as well. Thanks for posting the article!!!”
“This was a great article. It brought the place alive and places Kura Kura near the top of the list of where I want to visit. I hope to see more work here from Lisa Goins in the near future.”
