Rwanda, you Caught my Eye May 1st 2014 Help me Rwanda...I can’t get you out of my heart.
Uganda was all about the breathtaking landscapes and wildlife safaris but as we cross the border into Rwanda, the vibe drastically changes. This is going to be an emotional awakening. I just know it.

This Canadian girl's passion for travel comes from two very adventurous parents. My brother and I spent most of our youth traveling all over North America in the family campervan, airplane & boat - going as far west as the Hawaiian islands, as far north as Tuktoyaktuk on the Arctic Sea, and as far south as Mexico doing lots of adventurey stuff...canoeing, surfing, fishing, camping, hiking, skiing, exploring, jellyfish poking...it was the best childhood ever!

Oh Tara, I swear Rwanda was something else. I am so lucky I got to experience the people and the gorillas. And I was left wondering the same, how did these lovely people turn on each other? sigh.
THIS IS INCREDIBLE
One day I'll take this photo...
Best trip ever!
Yes you will otra Andrea! It is in the cards. Hopefully, there will still be some left. Last count, 800, plus 5 new babies named this year.
