Waterfalls around the world

Victoria Falls, Zambia

Victoria Falls

This morning we grabbed our water-proof shoes (for me it was my Keens), plastic bags for our cameras and climbed into a van to head to Victoria Falls. In all honestly, it was the falls that brought us to Zambia. We could have chosen the Zimbabwe side, and I can’t remember why we didn’t, but here we were.

Niagara Falls

We found ourselves in Buffalo for a few days for business, so we thought, “What a great opportunity to visit Niagara Falls,” a place known for its beauty and power. If you follow my blog, you know we were in Iguazu Falls in October, so now we could add another fabulously famous fall to our bucket list. Both Andy and I have been here before, but as young children, so we had little memory of it. My only memory came from a photograph of me in a raincoat and hat on the Maiden of the Mist.

But this is winter, so there would be no chance to replicate that pose.

Iguazu Falls

We’d been in Buenos Aries (look for the Buenos Aries blog) for a few days and were now doing a side trip to Iguazu Falls.

Flying to Iguazu

This morning was an early one. We had to dash over to our next hotel, the Sofitel, to drop off our luggage, and then head to the domestic airport in Buenos Aries (Aeroparque Jorge Newbery) to catch a flight to Iguazu Falls. Our driver picked us up, and because it was still so early, 630 in the morning, there was no traffic.  Argentinians stay up late and sleep late.  It took us less than 10 minutes to make our way across town, drop of the luggage and head to the airport.  We got to the airport about 2.5 hours before the flight. The airport was packed and the line to check in was long. But I noticed some check-in kiosks, and since we had no luggage to check, I decided to give that a try. The only problem for me was that Spanish was the only option. So I just tried to follow the instructions. Basically, the layout is the same at all airports kiosks throughout the world, so between my experience as a traveler and my very, very basic Spanish, I figured it out and within minutes had our boarding passes.
