Well after saying “this is my last summer of traveling” for the past four summers, I have lied yet again. Starting May 20th, 2008 I will fly to Mumbai via Abu Dhabi and start my summer traveling. This time around I will spend approximately 3-4 days in Mumbai, then take an overnight train to Delhi. When I arrive in Delhi I will meet up with my law school and start my summer abroad program with Touro Law.
On June 30th, 2008 I will fly from Delhi via Kingfisher air to Mumbai and catch my fligth to Abu Dhabi on Etihad Airways. I will be spending approximately 3-4 days in Abu Dhabi at the luxurious 5 star Hilton Abu Dhabi. Since I am going during the middle of their summer, hotels are about 50-70% off their normal price. Unfortunately since I am going during the middle of their summer it will surely be hot (41C or 115F) wow!
On July 3rd early morning I will be flying from Abu Dhabi to johannesburg enroute to my final destination of Capetown, South Africa. I decided to pass on Jo’burg for various reasons, but mainly to explore Capetown and the surrounding coastal region. Thanks to Jordan I have booked up with Big Blue Backpackers and will be spending 3 nights on C’Town.
On July 6th, 2008 I will meet up with my camping trip booked through Detour Travel (at a very affordable price, mention my name for a discount), but the actual company running the trip is Nomadtours.
This 26 day, 25 night camping trip will take me through western South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
