My GF and Me have booked a holiday to Kenya. We are doing a safari followed by a beach stay. I am so excited about going i feel like im going to explode - like a kid on Christmas eve. There is just one problem..... We dont go till Feb 2010 - 341 days to go. I seriously think if i dont calm down i am gonna blow up! Any ideas of things to take my mind off it or calm me down for the next 341 days? :-D

If I was going on that trip, I too would be soooooooo excited!!..wow what an experience. I think you are still in the initial shock stage of actually having the trip booked. I think as time wears on, some of the novelty will wear off til it gets close for the actual time to go. In the meantime, keep looking up things to see and do while there. Maybe after a while you will tire of it!

You are right to be so excited. The combination of the palm fringed Indian Ocean beaches and the East African bush will be fantastic. I loved it when I did a safari of the Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru. It was fascinating to meet the Masai tribe and find out about their culture. I hope that when you go you will take a camera with a good zoom on it. I suggest to take your mind off your trip you think about past traveling experiences and make up a list of your must travel to in the future. I am planning a trip to Canada in 2010 for Canada Day on 1st July. Last month I did an excellent two and a half safari in South Africa as part of my trip to Cape Town and the Garden Route with my toddler.
