You know you are going insane from winter when you start entertaining a trip to Zanzibar. Where is Zanzibar you ask? It is a small island off the coast of Tanzania. It is 90 degrees, sunny and has crystal white beaches. Sun! Heat! Beaches!... do they still exist??
It's actually one of the countries Brad has had to watch over while working for AFRICOM. As some of you know, the reason we're here in Europe is to support Africa! His job has nothing to do with any European countries, yet we live here in Germany to be closer to the continent.
Anyway... it didn't take much for Brad to convince me that, while it would be sunny, beachy, and wonderful, we would have to get malaria, yellow fever, typhoid, and Hep A shots, endure a 10 hour flight, and could not under any circumstances drink the water or even brush our teeth with water. Ummm.... ok so looks like my dream of a quick fix summer was shot down.
So please hurry up Spring!
