I have traveled to many places: Europe, Asia, South America (am saving the US for when I am old) 🙂 but the absolute best, most awesome, incredible trip was a 9-day safari to Botswana. On the fourth day I told the guide that already these had been the most fabulous days of my entire life (and that view has not changed).
I realize that this would not be the same for everyone but we saw a lioness move her four cubs, a cheetah teaching her three cubs how to hunt, had a lion stalk us, watched wild dog puppies fighting over sticks and above it all a huge open sky. I am unable to do the experience and my feelings justice, but hope that they will never be forgotten.
My grandmother just turned 101 last week. Looking back on her life, one of the things she is most happy with is that she has seen all of the US through her RV travels when she retired and had a wonderful tour of Russia in her 80s. Your story can be amazing- and does not have to follow anyone else’s ideal timeline!
