Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

Is kibbutz a uniquely Israeli idea? Maybe not, there are communes throughout the world, however, I can’t think of anywhere else where governments have supplied land and funding to fledging communities in the same way. Knowing little about the kibbutz life, (other than people’s personal tales of joining one during their travel through Israel) I… Continue reading Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review

New Orleans has an air of the macabre about it. It could be the city of the dead graveyards, the voodoo rituals and rights in the city’s parks. Maybe it’s the gaunt faces of hungover bachelorettes climbing gingerly into their minivans early in the morning. With Halloween just three days away we got spooky with… Continue reading Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review

Riding the Rails – Victoria Falls Royal Livingstone Express Review

Victoria Falls is a destination awash with nostalgia. From the Victoria Falls Hotel and its Edwardian grandeur and high tea, to the giant statue of Livingstone that overlooks the falls themselves. There is a very post-colonial whiff about the place, and we got a little swept away with it. To recapture a little of that… Continue reading Riding the Rails – Victoria Falls Royal Livingstone Express Review
