My best adventure: a safari in Africa. There's something joyous about watching the animals. I will be going to Namibia in June, looking for desert elephants and sand boarding--sliding down giant sand dunes.

My "worst adventure" came about because I relied upon a travel agent's judgment of an outfitter. The agent, I found out, didn't ever travel with the company. My children and I were camping and hiking through Australia's Olga mountain range. That proved wonderful. The outfitter, however, was rude, handed out dirty and worn sleeping bags that failed to keep us warm when the night temperatures dropped to around 40-F, served bad food and refused to talk to the group. We hiked the best trails and left a day early.
Please tell me about your experiences.
