Dawn...now that you have been on the trip...can you answer some of your own questions?
I take a laptop on all my trips. I just don't like the virtual keyboard on a tablet.
I don't like the virtual keyboard on the iPad either so have an ultra-thin, lightweight Logitech wireless cover w/keyboard which attaches with magnets and connects w/Bluetooth. It provides all the keyboard functionality that was annoyingly missing or difficult to use on my iPad virtual keyboard, and more. My wife's is rechargeable, mine which is newer, uses button batteries which last well over a year. The back of the Logitech keyboard is made from the exact same brushed metal and is the same color as the iPad Air II case, looks like it was always a part of the iPad. I don't know anything about the keyboards for current models of the iPad.
I have been paying close attention to the laundry details....I will be sure we have it ready the first day so we get it back the second day.....and I will wash our "smalls". I bought us hats and sketcher shoes that are comfortable for walking.
Steve is looking at a new lens....and a new camera and binoculars for me. I complain that all the vacation photos are of me and I would like to take his picture on this trip...lol I read that sharing binoculars is not ideal because invariably someone will miss the sight during the exchange.
We checked again today on the flights...we still have to wait a couple of days ...the flights home are still not available for booking. But it looks like we can fly American and British airways all the way...which is good so we can use our miles...and the admirals club. I cant imagine how tired we will be with two overnights traveling....but it will be worth it i am sure.
We arrive a day early..so we will be able to rest a bit. I really wanted to do the elephant safari...but have been drawing some flack from people about the cruelty to the elephants. I am a horse woman...so I don't really have issues with "riding" animals...but i certainly would not want to cause any animal pain or abuse. It is something I will have to think about.
Any one have any opinions about this? I am open to ideas and discussions.
Steve uses a canon 5D mark III....and he shoots in Raw....so his pictures are large and he likes to download them to the computer as a precaution. We don't have a tablet or an I pad...I used to have one and found it pretty useless...between an Iphone and a computer...I don't really need an Ipad....I gave it to my granddaughter.
