The reef-lined beaches of its western and southern coasts are popular for diving and snorkeling…….wonder if she’ll get time off her busy schedule to dive into those waters…
The Philippines is a Southeast Asian country in the Western Pacific, comprising more than 7,000 islands.
Its sprawling capital, Manila, is famous for its waterfront promenade and centuries-old Chinatown. Intramuros, a walled city in colonial times, is the heart of Old Manila. It’s home to the baroque 16th-century San Agustin Church as well as Fort Santiago, a storied citadel and military prison.
Well done Kelli and Anton…What a tribute to both of them… a year of really hard work, play and sacrifice, laughter and some tears, in some of the most beautiful places in this world….
They arrive back on African soil to plan their wedding at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge, on the bank of the Save Valley River…
Kelli and Anton on the Save River…
into the wilds of Africa, they will be surrounded by elephants, and an ocean of bush wilderness, after a long year at sea……..
