It came as quiet a shock to me when I realized that there is a country that I had never heard of. I mean I have been glaring at a map of the World for as long as I can remember!
The time has come for planning our next trip. Usually, before I even leave on a trip… I have already booked something for a few months after I return, but this time around we were looking at saving up for a big trip in 2018. Only to find out that plans had to be changed! And just life that our South America plans fell through and to top things off, it dawned upon me that this year we have 5 full weeks of vacation (school holidays) in December.
Naturally this has me itching desperately to go away, even for a week or so but given how “last minute” this is prices to everywhere are crazy!
Whilst everyone has a travel bucket list… my bucket list is anywhere & everywhere. Essentially it never really matters where I travel to… I just want to see everything!
So I started searching desperately and eventually struck gold and found a flight to somewhere I didn’t even know existed. So that settles it, Ash and I will be setting of on an adventure to Djibouti. A small country located on the Horn of Africa.
What do we plan on seeing…. No idea! But does it matter? We will get to throw ourselves into something completely unknown! Some of the best trips I have taken over the years have been along the lines of “I found an affordable trip, that’s where I will have to go next”.
I have always enjoyed arriving in a country where I know little about and leaving there with a wealth of knowledge and appreciation for what it has to offer and not to mention the person I grow to become. With ever journey, I find I come back just a little bit different from what I was (I know it sounds strange but it makes sense to me).
If anyone has travelled to Djibouti please get in touch! I would love to hear a bit about your experiences and gather any info I can!
