  • How Do you Keep Track of Your Destinations?

    I think of it in terms of memories, not a competition, so I don't keep a check list or map. I recently renewed my Global Entry and one of the questions asked in the online application was to list the countries visited in the last 5 years. I went to my PC Pictures directory. I name each trip folder by the trip year and area visited (eg., 2017-CentralEurope). That was enough to jog my memory sufficiently to list the 20 or so countries visited in that time.

    Just a ‘by the way’ about your Global Entry card. The ‘Real ID’ requirement that has now been postponed until October ... I think ... can be satisfied with your Global Entry card. My sister just tortured herself by going through the process and the expense of getting a ‘Real ID’ California drivers license, because she didn’t want to carry her passport just to get on a domestic flight. The regular California driver’s license does not qualify. I think there are a number of other state licenses that also do not qualify. But, the other ID’s that will qualify are ... your passport, your passport ‘card’, if you got one, a military active, retired, or dependent ID, and ... your Global Entry card. I did not think Global Entry had a picture, but I just looked at mine and it does. So no visits to the DMV in my future. (;-)))

    Many helpful observations on the visa issue for the K&T trip. We are going on the 10/13/18 departure arriving 2 days early via the Kiliminjaro Tanzania airport and departing at our end from Nairobi. When in the application window I plan to process visas directly with Tanzania and the E-Visa site for Kenya. Am I correct that both will be for SINGLE ENTRY visas? Thanks in advance.

    The Kenya eVisa is single entry, but I have also read that it is good for re-entry from Tanzania. If you plan on doing that, you should confirm from your own sources. I believe it is on the Kenya Embassy website. The Tanzania visa is a multiple entry visa good for 90 days at a time for one year.

  • Tanzania Bridges June 27th - Mt Kili hike vs Arusha NP?

    I, too, hope to do the family safari within five years with two granddaughters. I did the Serengeti-Tanzania last July 1st, and weather was wonderful. However, did not see Mt Kili due to clouds. My friend and I did arrange a tour of Arusha NP through our hotel, Serena Lake Duluti, and it was wonderful. As British says, the scenery is different from what you will see in other areas. It was a great day, we saw animals everywhere. We also were lucky to see the Colobus Monkeys very close to us. Our guide was also surprised and clicking away with his camera. Enjoy the trip. It is wonderful. I thought one trip to Africa would be it, but like others on this forum, I am hooked. Planning the Botswana trip next May. And keeping fingers crossed, I can take the granddaughters in years to come on Family Trip.

Sigmund Freud theorized that we have multi-track minds, and I’m pretty sure that one track of my mind is always dedicated to music. If there is no music in the environment, there is still always some melody playing in my head. I know many others share this condition. People talk about earworms, tunes that seem to lodge in your head and keep p...

For me growing up in America, the cultural footprint of Spain was so broad and deep that it almost faded into invisibility. My first history lesson said that Columbus discovered America and claimed it for Spain. I learned to take that assertion with a grain of salt, but it is true that Spain kicked off the wave of exploration and colonization ...
