Trip to River Nile

Trip to River Nile

Known for the storehouse of teeming population of animals and the telltale pyramids of the past Africa’s nook and corner offers a great time for ecotourism. The most treasured part of Africa is supposed to be Egypt as it is filled with the wonders one learns in the history books during childhood. The great river Nile has charted its course through the land of Egypt and floating on the historical river for over a week will be a valuable memoir for any traveler. Floating through the placid water of Nile and halting periodically at significant tourist spots of Egypt will fill this 8 day trip of bat sailing. I bet the 8 day long tour will whisk away and you will look at your watch suspiciously thinking it might have traveled faster than before. The trip is named as “sail the Nile in Style”  [...]

In nature’s lap

In nature’s lap

The Frankincense trees are appealing and deep-seated, and the road to them is a rough one on the island of Socotra, a Yemeni isle. I had hired the Land Cruiser before I got here in the hopes that it would make for a comfortable way of getting around the rocky island, but from what I sat it was one rocky pile after another, up and over, rinse and repeat. After what was an hour and a half, we had traversed no more than five miles as the driver wrestled the wheel and the terrain. I got out and surveyed the scenery, a riverbed gushing alongside rubble and hunks of limestone. Not far off there were small trees surrounding us, like little pygmies with a woody body. Kamaal, our driver, approached one of the trees and pointed out a marigold like substance oozing out of its trunk. That substance  [...]

Fire Island is an extensive mind-blowing beach located in New York City. Standing as a barrier of the Long island, it remains as a part of the National Seashore.
