Mini Spring Break

A travel blog entry by hailey.koehler


We got on a bus at 7 AM Thursday and after a long, hot 8.5 hour bus ride we arrived in Tanga. We met our taxi driver who took us to the ferry boat to cross Pangani River then we took the taxi again to the hotel. Went night swimming in the hot Indian Ocean under the stars and lightning. The next day we swam all day and laid on the beach and everyone …

... were covering the mountain, and Doggy suggested going on to meet up with the others at Peponi Beach Resort south of Tanga, north of Pandani. Whew what a relief!It was great to see the traveling companions. And they had some fried fish waiting for us for lunch. The tide was in and after setting up camp, Doggy and I went for a swim - 30degrees. Like a hot bath. After a shower, the guys and I went to watch the Boks playing Wales. Jolly and ...

Days 12/13 Travel

... a stop for lunch but straight through to Dar es Salaam. We arrived by about half 2, had lunch and set up the tents. The campsite was right by the sea, and had a pool. Four of us went in the sea, but Mark and I were stung by jellyfish (Ahhhh) so the pool it was. Great fun having shoulder ride fights and playing 'hippo hop' - our new ...

The most expensive and worst hotel so far!

... disembarked to let the bus board the ferry and then purchased our own tickets for the crossing. Here we took a seat on the passenger area and crossed the river. Now I must say that I have respected the Islamic preference to males always alerting their eyes from a woman and was taken by complete surprise as a woman then bared her breast right in front of me to feed her child. I suddenly found the river so much more interesting all of a sudden! As we reached the far bank I ...

A dhow ride to the spice island of Zanzibar.

A travel blog entry by matt746

... It occurred just next to me as we all rushed to fend off the blow. The argument that erupted was furious and I stood by to repel boarders if necessary. As with many things in East Africa the anger needed to be vented but no one had time for delays in their days business.

As we approached the narrowest of gaps in the packed line of dhows the anchor was dropped and dredged to turn the bow then paid out as we reversed into the tightly packed confines of the the ...

    The ocean here was fantastic! So warm! The food here is amazing! Not very African comparitively, the breakfast lunch and dinner are all so delicious! Andthe bar is also nice and not terrbily expensive. They also have reaonably priced horse back riding and snorkeling is nearby. Not a very busy place when I went but enough people to make a party. The huts are very modest little tent sturctures that are fine except foor all the bugs. We had a problem with huge spiders and milipedes, we weren't harmed but it was scary and hard to sleep. So as far as sleeping accomodations you get what you pay for because it is very cheap. but overall I had a great experience!
