My lovelies, the decision is made. I know where I will travel to. And I’m more than happy about your amazing suggestions and ideas. Your comments and emails and all. From Amsterdam to Zdiar. An my bucket list is now soooo much longer. I haven’t even heard of some places before. Amazing amazing amazing. You are the best! And this was my favourite comment:
I’ve never been to Tokyo. But this would be me as a city? Then I definitely have to go there. One day. Not now. I won’t travel to Tokyo. But it’s a destination with “T”. Thailand maybe?
Nope, I won’t travel to Thailand although this was your favourite. No Songkran for me this year…
I will travel to…
TANZANIA, more precisely: to ZANZIBAR
The very sound of it. A word that feels good when you speak it out loudly. When my friends from Condor asked me if I wanna fly to Zanzibar with them I didn’t have to think twice. I thought: Just do it!
And now it’s decided. I will fly for one week to Zanzibar. Sigh. And I have no idea. I only know that I will have permission to film on board! If everything goes well I will film IN the cockpit and ask the captain how many shooting stars you see during a night flight over Africa. And I will ask the stewardess how many litres tomato juice they normally serve during a flight. And if I’m very very lucky I will see sunrise and sunset from the cockpit. Really looking forward to this. And to my time on the island.
But I have no idea how I will spend my time there. And when I think about it I feel queasy. It will be the very first time that I will be travelling completely solo. Nothing arranged, no one there to hold my hand. Sigh. And here’s your turn again:
Have you been to Zanzibar? Do you know someone who lives there or who has been there? Where should I stay? Any recommendations for guest houses? What should I do? What do I need to know?
Looking forward to your comments or emails to [email protected]

I just came back from Tanzania. I used to live in Dar-es-Salaam till January this year for my work as a researcher. I also went back for Easter (came back this Tuesday).
Zanzibar (or Z’bar) is only a short distance off the coast from Dar. I spent New Years there, it’s a pretty little, happy Island and worth traveling there!
Have fun and enjoy!
Greetings from Munich!
So unexpected 🙂 Really looking forward all that footage from the cockpit !
Cant wait to read all about it! We are planning on going there on our 30 day overland safari!
How exciting! I can’t wait to hear about your adventures in Zanzibar… I ALMOST traveled there over 3 years ago but the trip fell through.. but I haven’t forgotten about it.
Sounds like an awesome trip Yvonne! I don’t know anything about Zanzibar. Even your filming opportunities on the plane sound interesting. Hope you have a lot of fun there.
Sounds great Yvonne!
I’ve only been to Tanzania once when I was a child and it’s pretty high on my bucket list. Never been to Zanzibar unfortunately … I’ll definitely keep following you on that trip 🙂
Also, maybe this article is of interest for you (in case you do have some time to travel through Tanzania as well): http://www.letstravelsomewhere.com/travel-inspiration/morris-weintraub-tanzania/
Take care & have fun!
Sounds amazing, cant wait to see your pictures from Zanzibar and most importantly, you chatting up the pilots in the cockpit!
Sounds amazing. Always wanted to go actually, so I am looking forward to your posts.
Wenn du alleine dorthin reist, zieh dir besser einen Ehering an, sonst wirst du nach kürzester Zeit Heiratsanträge von dort lebenden Afrikanern bekommen 🙂 Ich hatte auf Zanzibar ein unschönes Erlebnis an einem leeren Strandabschnitt (bin von zwei Jungs bedroht worden), also besser immer an belebten Stellen aufhalten. Ansonsten viel Spaß auf der Insel. Ich hab vor kurzem einen Reiseratgeber für alleinreisende Frauen online gestellt, kannst ja mal reinschauen 🙂 Bin mal gespannt, was du berichtest. Lg
