October 9th. Yesterday marked Uganda’s 54 years of independence and to commemorate this day, I put together a short list of places I absolutely must visit in the next 12 months. And then I thought, what better place to start than Uganda, the Pearl of Africa itself?
Let’s start with the places I have been to in Uganda that categorically stand out to me:
Murchison Falls National Park – absolutely breathtaking. The top of the falls was the major highlight.
Ssese Islands – peace and tranquility is what comes to mind. Also, I loved the quad bikes.
Jinja town – speaking of quad bikes, this is a must try when in Jinja.
Where I absolutely must go in the next 12 months:
Lake Bunyonyi – for some more peace, tranquility and beautiful scenery.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – from what I hear, the impressive mountain gorillas are a must see for everyone.
Places I must visit outside the pearl:
Abu Dhabi – I took a short trip to Dubai in April last year and on my bucket list is a trip back to the United Arab Emirates to visit its fascinating capital, Abu Dhabi.
Euro tour – I’ve been reading about the famous Schengen VISA as well as train passes that allow one to visit up to 28 European countries all in one visit – how exciting?
Stay tuned for updates as well as posts on planning, saving, creating time and really making the most out of travel.
What’s on your travel bucket list? I would love to hear your thoughts in the reply section below. Xx.
