The Voting Is Over – I’m Going to Africa!

Last weekend I let you vote for my next RTW destination from two options. Here are the results:

  1. Africa (South Africa to Kenya): 70 votes
  2. Central America: 46 votes
  3. “HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!”: 1 vote

Yes, the last one was my mom. 🙂 Anyway, Africa it is! Thank you so much for everyone who voted!

I’ll still be in Mexico for a while, and I’ll do a few stops in South America on the way to South Africa. The African leg of my journey will begin in late December or early January.

I still haven’t planned my route, so I’m open for all sorts of tips and suggestions!
