The Best $30 I Spent in Botswana – The Chobe River Cruise!

Previously in my international experiences I had always been told that Safari's and everything that went along with them were out of my budget, however, I was greatly mistaken. It was not until last summer when I took a post graduation trip on a limited budget to Africa that I discovered the potential to see impressive wildlife for the price of an overpriced steak dinner in the United States… Within fifteen minutes of spending $30, I had witnessed an entire family of elephants!

The Chobe River cruise was around three hours in duration and left late enough in the afternoon to allow for more agreeable temperatures while simultaneously providing incredible lighting for photographs. The neat thing about this river cruise was that the boats were able to get close enough to the wildlife that were in the marshes. After we had spent a couple of hours admiring the precious wildlife, the boat turned around right at sunset allowing us to enjoy picturesque views of the river.

The moral of the story here is that, yes, there is a very expensive way to travel, however, there is also a way to see meaningful cultured sights around the world while you are pinching pennies! (Believe me, I would know!)

Hello Readers! For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Jacquelyn Vadnais and it is a pleasure to meet you! Per the request of many friends, I am finally taking their advice and blogging about my international experiences. To give a background of myself, I just recently finished a JD/MBA from Suffolk University in Boston and have decided to pack my bags and emigrate to Latin America immediately!Many people have asked me why on earth I decided to move to Latin America after finishing such a prestigious program, however, once you get to know me you will see that I am truly world traveler at heart who gets such joy from experiencing fantastic cultures around the world. This is the reason that I have traveled to 50 countries (and counting!) in my life and have lived in 10 (and also counting!)I plan on giving my readers a first-hand guide on how to travel beyond the guidebook and truly experience where you are visiting and/or living for a time through the lens of a local. Based on my experiences with international culture, world heritage sites, delicious global cuisine, and diverse wines, I plan on sharing with you a piece of my unique adventures. These adventures have truly provided me with an invaluable world class education that is arguably equally as essential as the education that I received in the classroom.
