If you like piña coladas...

Zanzibar....let's just say that if we died here we would already be in heaven. We considered shacking up with the all too keen locals and living a life of sarongs and sunsets. And cocktails. To make you all jealous we'll give you a day by day run down. Day one, Friday the 21st. We arrived safely despite the dodgy looking planes, and were surprised by the heat and humidity. We were expecting our hotel to be relatively nice, but not this nice. We were greeted with warm ...

A travel blog entry by dingleydave
