Places I'm not all that Fussed about Visiting #3


Continuing the occasional series...

The Serengeti. OK, so it's number one on the list of natural travel wonders of the world, so some people must like it, but I can't really say I'm desperate to watch 2 million animals walk from one place to another. Yes, if I happened to be in the area (perhaps visiting Ngorongoro, which I do have a vague reason to want to see), then I probably would wander over and try to be impressed. I just don't see it as something worth travelling several thousand miles to see. It's not as if the scenery is spectacular or anything; it's just a bunch of animals going from A to B while attempting to avoid being eaten by lions. I can see animals in Colchester zoo, and they won't attempt to trample me to death if I startle them there.

Endless plains teeming with herbivores. I guess you have to be there to appreciate the magnificence of it all ... except I have no intention of ever doing so.

That said, thousands of tourists every year disagree with me.
