My mom is coming to Madagascar and I am getting SO EXCITED. I think this will possibly be my most exciting and adventurous vacation EVER. We are going EVERYWHERE in Madagsacar!!
I'm finalizing the details tomorrow with A REAL TRAVEL AGENCY (this has been super hard to find!!!), but here's the itinerary.
May 1: My mom arrives in Antananarivo. I'm flying up to meet her, since well....it's... umm... interesting landing in MG. She gets there around 23h00.
May 2: After spending the night in an icky hotel (I just can't learn to love this place...even if it's provided to us for free), we'll fly back home to Toamasina (at 05h00. zzzzzzzzzzz)
May 2-4: My mom will sleep, hang by the pool, go into town with the expat wives, or whatever she wants to do. I'm at work, so she'll be stuck by herself for a bit.
May 5: We're doing the Canal Pangalanes tour with a few of the other expat wives. It's an amazing way to really see what the local life is like here.
May 6: Off to Muhumbo. I've been here a couple of times. It's about a two hour ride. A two hour VERY BUMPY ride. Usually involves being stopped by the Police or Military for ID checks.
hope that if I get to do some exploring, maybe I'll be less of a hater...
I'm not quite sure how it's working yet, but the plan is to head South to Tulear:
