It’s that time again. Time to start planning our next great adventure with Expedia.com. We’ve popped over to Thailand to shoot a campaign for Expedia Find Yours , we’ve Run with the Bulls in Spain last month to find our Viva and we’re heading to Switzerland next month to cover the Adventure Travel World Summit with our favourite online booking company. Dave’s even going to be speaking on a panel with some very esteemed writers and adventure travelers.

But, now it’s time to start planning for November and we need your help!

We brainstormed with the people at Expedia, to come up with some ideas of where we think our readers would like to send us next. We tried to keep things in tune with the time of year and realized that there is a lot going on in November around the world. It’s a great month to travel and here are a few highlights as to what you could do yourself if you are looking for your next great adventure vacation.

Wildlife Safari, Kenya

An Elephant from our Safari in Chobe National Park

The last time we were in Africa, we cycled the continent from Cairo to Cape Town. However, there was civil unrest at the time in Kenya and we couldn’t enter the country when we reached the border from Ethiopia. Instead, we had to catch a bus back to Addis Ababa to fly over the country to Tanzania, where we decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro rather than see the Serengeti. I wish we could have done it all, but it was a safari or a mountain climb. We chose the mountain. We’ve always wanted to go on Safari. It’s been our dream to take a hot air balloon over the Serengeti during the wildlife migration. If we time it right, we could attend the Mombasa Carnival with floats, parades and music from every culture, custom and religion. Wouldn’t that be incredible?

Pushkar Camel Fair in India

Meeting up with a Camel Caravan in the Sudan

The last time we were in India we just missed the Pushkar Camel Fair. It is the biggest collection of camels in one place and a spectacle of epic proportions. It is a photographer’s dream and I can only imagine the incredible photographs that Dave would capture at this colourful festival. We’ve had our share of camel experiences from Safaris in Rajasthan to encounters in Sudan and walks through the desert of Egypt and Jordan, but this festival is apparently like no other. All I can say is that India is a feast for the senses. (in every way – good and bad) and we will definitely enjoy a sensory overload if we make our way to the camel festival of Pushkar, What a great adventure indeed.

La Diablada,  Peru

Great Adventures in Lake Titicaca

On the banks of Lake Titicaca a great festival takes place each November known ast La Diablada. It is a celebration of an evil spirit. Oooh! Locals surround the colourful evil spirit with red crucifixes. Nobody knows exactly the origin of the La Diablada Festival, but we do hear it is one amazing party! Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world with an elevation of 3,812 metres (12,507 feet). The last and only time we were in Peru, we didn’t have the chance to visit Lake Titicaca. We wished that we could do it all, but alas we had only two weeks in the country and had to see the iconic Machu Picchu instead. Maybe this time we will get our chance.

Hawaii for Vetrans Day

Slack Key Guitars in Maui

Our first time ever to Hawaii was this past summer when we had the opportunity to Visit Lanai and Maui during one trip. We loved the islands for their great adventure travel opportunities from kiteboarding and paddle boarding to steering an outrigger canoe and hiking in the jungle. This visit would take us to Oahu where we would visit the USS Arizona, USS Bowfin Submarine, the USS Missouri Battleship, and the Pacific Aviation Museum. We wouldn’t just stick to Honolulu though, we’ll also showcase the rich history and adventure travel around the island as well.

Wow! These trips are amazing. I’m glad I don’t have to choose between them all. All we had to do was come up with the ideas and it’s up to you to tell us where to go, so head over to Facebook today and help us decide. We’re at your mercy. Where do you want us to go? What do you want to learn more about and where have you always wanted to visit. We’ll be sharing the experience with you each step of the way.

    Hello Deb and Dave,
    Wow you guys are always on the go! How many hours have you spent flying this year? It would be an interesting statistic!

    I vote for Peru, the festival sounds very exotic. The place is so easy to get to as well! :)

      That would be a great statistic. I may have to add up all our itineraries for a year end wrap up! I know that we’ve already reached elite status on Air Canada, something that we did last year just by the skin of our teeth, and we’re almost there for the One World status points as well. So it goest to show, too much time in the air!

      I’m so glad to hear that Matthew, we love camels too. They get a bad rap and have such tough lives. I only worry how they are treated during the camel festival. Maybe we will be able to see!

      I agree Amanda, that’s why it’s so awesome that we have people choosing for us. We’d love to do them all and could never decide:)

      I agree Susan, it is a dream trip. Doing it with Expedia will also be a dream. they always come up with the best destinations and places to stay. I wonder who we’ll end up going with if it is chosen?

    I’m voting for Peru. The El Diablada fest sounds too interesting to miss. Plus, you guys might be able to squeeze in a side trip to Macchu Piccu.

    1. debndave Post author

      We agree, I’d love to witness this festival. Plus, we haven’t been to Lake Titicaca before and really want to see it. Luckily we have seen Machu Picchu. When we visited Peru we had to choose either north or South. We went for the ruins instead.

    Gosh, those are some pretty good options. I think La Diablada is the choice for me. Peru has some breathtaking scenery, and I love getting lakes and water involved. Still, all of those trips seem amazing, and you have some great photos to boot. Have you traveled to any other South American destinations?

    Cheers,

    Ryan
