Landings Travel Newsletter - May 2015

      Landings Travel Newsletter - May 2015 View this email in your browser What is on your Must-Do List?   "Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport." Whether you dream of cage diving with great white sharks or experiencing the Northern Lights, everyone has destinations that they absolutely want to visit and may start planning years in advance to make it happen. Call it a bucket list or a must-do list. Keep the ideas mentally or cut out pictures from magazines as inspiration. While the destinations are endless, we are going to focus on two very popular bucket list items: Safaris and trips to Antarctica. Share with us what your must-do travel destination is on Facebook and then give us a call when you are ready to start planning. Facebook Twitter Website Pinterest SAFARI In Swahili safari means travel, trip, or journey and is usually on the top of many traveler's must-do lists. Most wish to go on a safari to see the wildlife, up close and personal in their natural habitat, from the safety of a four wheel drive vehicle with an expert guide to make the experience more enjoyable. There is a safari available for every type of traveler and it can be as rugged or as luxurious as you would like. Places to Go and Animals to See Witnessing the migration of over 2 million animals across the Maasai Mara in Kenya is one of the most popular safari destinations and one of the most easily accessible. Interested in seeing gorillas? Rwanda and Uganda's national parks are home to mountain gorillas. A place you may not have thought of for a safari is India, which is home to over half of the world's wild tiger population. Take a trip to Nepal and see the Bengal tiger, snow leopard, and Himalayan black bear. ANTARCTICA Usually one of the last stops on a quest to visit all 7 continents, a trip to Antarctica is unlike any other you will go on. 96% of the continent is covered in ice and it is considered the most remote place on Earth. Visits occur during the Antarctic summer months (November to March) where there is typically 20+ hours of sunlight a day. There are plenty of opportunities for excellent wildlife viewing and unique photography experiences. Mating season for penguins is during summer months and it is not uncommon to see fur and elephant seals as well as humpback, orca and minke whales. Tours are accompanied by an experienced naturalist who ensures both guests and wildlife are being carefully looked after. Ship sizes range from small, 20 passenger vessels, to large, 900 passenger cruise ships. Because of the small number of tours operating in Antarctica, the short length of the tourist season, and limitations on number of visitors, it is best to plan well in advance.

The Boathouse at Downtown Disney

Here are some pictures from the newly opened Boathouse restaurant in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World. The décor and environment of the restaurant is, obviously, very nautical. It is a really fun area to walk around. The bar is extended out onto the lake and their are numerous antique boats that you can view. The most talked about aspect of The Boathouse is the Amphicars. These are the cars that you can drive straight into the water and look like so much fun!
