36 HOURS IN A TRAVELIFE
Every single day in a Travelife is terribly interesting, but never moreso than in 2013. It was a year full of great adventures and amazing travels.
But if I had to choose a most enjoyable 36 hours in a never-endingly eventful Travelife, I think I would choose a couple of days last October, when a 36-hour period began in the sleepy seaside city of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and ended in Manila.
My 36 hours ended with the ultra-successful Rob Schneider comedy show at Solaire, which Travelife Magazine had co-organized…
This particular 36 hours spanned at least three continents, six meals, and way too many interesting things, even in a never-ending Travelife.
GOOD MORNING, DAR ES SALAAM.
I woke up in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on the last morning of a two-week holiday that included three safari experiences and a beach resort.
We stayed in a lovely boutique hotel right by the sea, in the best part of town.
It was a very nice way to end a holiday in a pretty exotic country because this hotel was so tasteful and comfortable, reminding us of those lovely old houses in New Manila.
A VERY NICE DISCOVERY
This boutique hotel was a genuine find.
It had only eight rooms, and it was really more of a house than a hotel.
Everything was simply but beautifully done — from the interiors of the public rooms and the bedrooms, to the meals.
I was so glad we stayed here.
We almost didn’t, you see.
I’d chosen all the hotels for this trip, and for this overnight stop in Dar es Salaam, I’d initially booked an equally nice hotel, but one that catered more to business travelers.
