I don't think I'd go to South Africa even if the trip were free.

Just a quick FYI: +King Pacific Lodge in  #britishcolumbia   #canada  has closed (declared bankruptcy) http://www.authenticluxurytravel.net/2012/06/king-pacific-lodge-whales-in-the-wilderness.html …Here's hoping the owners of this very special place can recoup their finances and re-open.

Story
Tagline
I love writing about ways that travelers can connect with local people and their cultures while they are visiting an unfamiliar destination.This might be a foreign country or a nearby city. In my articles, I provide readers with information they can use to wander off the beaten path instead of following the well-worn trail of tourist sites.
Introduction
I write two travel blogs:  "Authentic Luxury Travel" and "La Jolla (San Diego) Travel Information," and I am the Travel Editor of Ranch & Coast, San Diego's ultimate lifestyle magazine.

I also offer trip planning services for my readers who want a creative, customized itinerary, but don't have the time or experience to do the research and organization. My years as a guidebook author and world traveler enable me to plan great trips for others.
