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 …

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!

The next day I was awoken at 0400 by the first call to prayer by the local mosque. I once more put on my traveling clothes and was ready to leave by 0450 for a bus that should be there at 0500. I was surprised by the two sleeping figures in the courtyard and even more so my the machete wielding security guard. He asked me in Swahili if I was ready... (Ready to tango or what exactly, were these in fact fighting words?) It turns out my friend from the night before had organised ...

A dhow ride to the spice island of Zanzibar.

A travel blog entry by matt746

... the twisting streets of the town. The narrow alleyways that twist and turn between Arabic and Indian designed houses. To find the Mancu Guest house. A converted Indian house that was just perfect. I checked into my room, had a shower, contemplated burning the clothes I had been wearing and laid down on the bed for a rest. I was half way through a conversation on Skype instant messaging with Shannon when I dozed off. With no breakfast or lunch I slept the sleep of a contented man. ...

Last day in Tanga

A travel blog entry by lorrikk


Up at the crack of dawn to attend church today. Nothing like a cold water shower to wake you up! Francis said service is at 7 so we met up at 630 to walk to the church. Weren't we surprised when we got there at 10 to 7 and the doors were closed? Apparently, he was wrong it's at 730. When the doors did open we were one of the first ones in. We took up 2 rows of pews near the back. As people started trickling in we had some looks. We noticed the pews in ...

    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!
