2008-05-02 14:13 - Plenty of Updates and News

After an extremely busy week after our trip to Peru, I've finally managed to update the website with the latest from the Andean country including new waterfalls, travel stories, non-waterfall attractions, and more.

The World's Top 10 List is also updated to include changes in waterfall rankings (see which one made it and which one got kicked out) as well as some location information adjacent to the waterfall names thanks to some useful reader feedback.

Finally, tonight is the night that Julie and I are departing for our life-changing round-the-world trip to Oz and Africa. Hopefully it all works out in terms of waterfall sightings, political turmoil, logistics, and health (after all, I'm still stricken with that nasty cold and possibly bronchitis caught from that Peru trip). I hope to put new waterfalls and experiences from this epic journey into the website in the July/August timeframe though it could easily be in September when all is said and done.

In the mean time, I will try to provide some updates during our journey, but that will depend on whether we have Wi-Fi or not out in both Oz and Africa. Wish us luck!!!

2008-05-26 20:21 - Victoria Falls done

After spending two and a half weeks along the east coast of Australia, Julie and I have finally visited the world famous Mosi-oa-Tunya (i.e. Smoke That Thunders) otherwise known as Victoria Falls. This mammoth waterfall is for sure going to make the top 10 list, but we're not sure where it sits compared to Iguazu Falls. It's going to be a tough call.

At first, Iguazu Falls got the edge when we only saw the falls from the Zambia side because the amount of spray and mist kind of diminished the experience (sometimes you can have too much of a good thing). Then, we saw the falls from both the air and the Zimbabwe side, and now we're still debating whether this falls dethrones Iguazu as the best one we've seen. The list won't be updated until we return from our trip, but we'll sure use this time for further discussion. Stay tuned...
