MY TRIP TO GAMBIA: For my trip to The Gambia I plan to take off from the San Diego international airport on a 6am flight. I should reach Florida at about 12noon where I will have a lay over for 2 hours while they refuel and prepare the flight. After the wait I will board the flight and reach The Gambia at about 8am the next day. I?ll have reservations at the hotle for the day I arrive. I plan to have such a severe case of jet lag as to render me bed ridden for the next 2 days. After I recover I will spend another 2 days exploring the sites around the hotel in eastern The Gambia. After those days are up I will hop on a small charter boat and take the river east until I reach the west coast of Africa. This trip should take 3 weeks. After I arrive at the coast I will stay at the beach for 2 days then head to the capital ad stay there for 3 days. After that, I will take off from a local airport and head the same back as the way I came.
