While I’m in Botswana, I want to try and visit all the countries surrounding it. My ultimate bucket list goal is to visit every UN-recognized nation, and I figure while I’m in southern Africa, I might as well see the countries around me! Who knows if I’ll have the time or money to do it all, but I will try!
Peace Corps Bucket List:
-Go on a safari in the Okavango Delta
-See the salt pans in the south of Botswana (and the meerkats!)
-Try and regularly exercise (if this doesn’t happen now, it will never happen)
-Actually learn Setswana and come back knowing that language
-Find a cool project to do in the community that is both sustainable and useful!
-Go to the Bushfire festival in Swaziland
-See Cape Town and some South African vineyards (of course)
-Visit Mozambique! (might be a tough one, the visa regulations can be difficult)
-See Victoria Falls from both the Zimbabwean and Zambian side
-Go in the Devils Pool at Victoria Falls (Google it, you’ll die. Mom, don’t google it)
-See the sand dunes in Namibia and go off-roading
-Hike the Drakensberg mountains in Lesotho
