The Post travels to Africa

Paul and Judy Stark, of Cedar Springs, and Dave and Jan Malmo, of Howard City, had an amazing opportunity to visit an African Masai tribe as part of a 2-1/2 week trip to Tanzania, Africa in May. 

“These people live today the same as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago,” explained Jan.

The friends spent nine days on safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater viewing dozens of indigenous animals and birds. “The wildebeest migration was awesome as thousands of these animals ran for miles and miles in lines,” said Jan. 

They also saw herds of zebra, cape buffalo, lions, elephants, baboons, rhinos, leopards and giraffes. And a curious cheetah jumped up on their safari vehicle to have a look around! “That was beyond exciting since the roof and all the windows were open!” she remarked.

The Starks and Malmos felt blessed to have such an awesome opportunity.

The Post travels to Peru

With the assistance and expertise of travel agent Lori Visser, Ken and TJ Norris traveled to Peru in mid-March and took along the Post. They made stops in the beautiful Miraflores neighborhood of Lima, the Inca “Navel of the World” city of Cusco, and the Sacred Valley in the Andes. The high point (in scenic view if not altitude) was, of course, the famous Inca ruins at Machu Picchu, but for their 24th anniversary the Cedar Springs pair also visited several other nearly-as-impressive ruins. The woman shown with The Post and the llama were at the Urubamba ruins.

Thank you, Ken and TJ, for taking us with you to Peru!

The Post travels to Greece

Rachel and Josh Hunt on the island of Hydra, in Greece.

The Post recently went on an adventure to explore ancient Greece, with Rachel and Josh Hunt. 

“We started off in Athens with a walking tour of the city, and then explored the Acropolis,” said Rachel. “We then traveled to Olympia to see the birthplace of the Olympic Games and the ruins at Mycenae. Next we traveled to Delphi and toured the ruins on the slopes of Mount Parnassos.” 

Delphi is the site of the 4th-century-B.C. Temple of Apollo, once home to a legendary oracle. This extensive mountainside archaeological complex contains the remains of the sanctuaries of Apollo and Athena Pronaia, as well as an ancient stadium and theater.

She said they concluded the trip with a traditional Greek feast and a day cruise to Hydra, Poros, and Aegina islands. 

Thank you, Rachel and Josh, for taking us with you!
