Around the World in 26 Letters--Africa


Africa is my ultimate dream destination. I want to see elephants, elephants, elephants.



Maybe some zebras galloping along the savanna, giraffes nibbling high branches, possibly a big cat or two (snuggling preferably).



Do you want to go to Africa? Have you been there?

  1. My mum and step-dad went to Africa some years ago, and took some gorgeous photos. It seems like a wonderful place to visit.

  4. Elephants are my most favorite animal. I think they are so so beautiful.
    My family lived in Angola for many years, which is where I was born, though I don't remember it because we moved back to Portugal when I was just a few months old. I've always dreamed of going back. Some day.

  8. Africa and Australia are high on my list of places to visit. Wouldn't an African safari be amazing? *sigh* I would love it too. And fabulous picture choices. :)

  12. My dad and brother went there years ago. Brought back fun stories and pictures. I think Africa would be an interesting place to visit, but I have so many more places I'd like to go to first.

  13. Yeah, you definitely don't want those big cats coming after you. :) Snuggling is good.

    I'd LOVE to go to Africa. Heck, I'd pretty much like to go anywhere...

  15. The only part of Africa that I've been to is Egypt, but that's more like the Middle East than the 'real' Africa. I'd like to go on a safari sometime.

  19. I would love to go to Africa. I wanted to go even more (particularly to Kenya) after seeing the incredible German film 'Nowhere in Africa,' based on Stefanie Zweig's memoirs of her family's stay in Kenya during WWII. There's some gorgeous scenery, and so many beautiful animals.

  21. My grandfather was a missionary's kid and lived in Africa as a child up until his late teen years. Whenever I visit him, it's a history lesson about Africa! Love it.

  24. What about hippos? Don't you want to see them? I'd love to see a hippo or Africa, but I'm a little too afraid of Africa to pluck up the courage to go there.

    1. I do want to see hippos! But they're in the water, then maybe there would be crocodiles :(

  25. I would also love to see elephants in the wild! Elephants are my E for A-Z!
