So I rebooked my vaction. We are now going Janurary 5th to the 13th. Know the best part we are going to get 8 days worth of tickets for cheaper then 6. I also saved us 1,200 from the military discount.

I am a bit excited.

Congrats on the booking! What a great trip you have to look forward to!


"Hi!" from Ft Leonard Wood!

I have to say, the Base is very nice - easy to get around. The buildings we have been in are kept very clean (unlike some other bases I have been! ) Have met some extraordinary soldiers and have been made to feel very welcome (again, unlike some other bases! )

The weather is gorgeous -- heat wave broke and it is very comfortable here. We have the weekend off so will go exploring!

See y'all real soon!

All the hotels near the Base were booked, so we are in Rolla. 2 Panera Breads to choose from!

Planning on arriving the 21st now instead of the 22nd, because the airfare is awfully expensive
Oh no! I'm sorry. I'm glad it wasn't dead though. It's never fun to have those unexpected expenses.

Have you ever done V&A before? To me you should try it once at least. If you have, then you know what kind of foodie experience it is and can decide if that is what you want.

The safari is an in depth and personal tour with very limited space and a great dinner with wine afterwards.

For me that would be a hard choice, I love them both.

I did both last year on the same trip, never thought I'd be back to AKL so wanted to pack in everything, and thought they were both fabulous. The Wanyama Safari is much more relaxing, no hiking through the woods and what not, just sitting and watching the animals. You get up close and personal with them which was so cool. A giraffe came close enough I could have touched it, and if the CMs weren't there I probably would have Planning to do the Wanyama Safari again next year, and would do the WAT again as well. Enjoyed both immensely, no regrets at all.

My question is, Does anyone know if they have cookie sheets in the villas?

tia,

Can't help you. I'm sorry! I know that you can keep a set in your owners locker if you buy them , right?
