Travel to Malta for a destination that will satisfy your wanderlust for ancient civilizations, intricate architecture and a culture rich with history. Malta, located in the Mediterranean Sea, just south of Sicily and north of Africa, is actually an archipelago of three islands. Besides Malta, there is Gozo and Comino, both smaller than the main island but with their own rich and ancient history and epic scenery. It has a long history spanning centuries of colonial occupation, from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and France to Britain in more recent times.
Make your winter holiday visit to Washington D.C. special at the U.S. Botanic Garden exhibit. The holiday season elevates this local attraction to a top thing to do in DC with it's amazing train and model exhibit. This year it is all about train stations from around the country vs the 2017 display features model trains traveling through an exhibit of roadside attratctions from around the country with each state represented. Fair warning that this is a busy exhibit, typically with lines and parking in the area over the holidays is very limited. This is a great family excursion exploring the 50 state road side attraction while trains whistle by and Thomas the tank engine chugs along its tracks.
Tradtional Season's Greetings includes pine trees and pine wreaths but get ready for something unique. Your visit to the Botanic Gardens will deliver you an architecutral experience of how plant materials are used to build the models of many of the Washington D.C. landmarks. There are twelve plant-based model in the 2017 exhibit that incorporate materials such as corriander seeds, willow sticks, pine cone scales and over 70 more plant materials. It would be a great eye spy game to try and find each and every plant material used on the models. This is painstaking work with U.S. Capitol builidng taking over 600 hours to construct but what an amazing sight. Models on exhibit this year are include the following:

Tyler Fairbank's describes his video:
My safari guides thought I was nuts taking thousands of photos each day so hopefully now they will understand...
This was my first trip to anywhere in the continent and it was eye opening. There are few things more thrilling than being woken up at 5:30am to the sounds of lions outside your tent. I will be back South Africa.
