Posted by addisethiopia on January 10, 2013
The Telegraph – probably one of the few remaining descent, politically incorrect British newspapers/websites presents an attractive calendar of the best escorted world tours running in 2013.
Please come with me:

September we take the dreamliner to Addis Abeba
Dalol Depression – North East Ethiopia
One of the hot new destinations for 2013, Ethiopia may surprise you. Famous for its rock-hewn churches and ancient monasteries, it also boasts lush, dramatic scenery – in the Simien Mountains National Park, for example, where ibex, baboons and the rare Ethiopian wolf inhabit a landscape of jagged volcanic peaks and deep valleys.
The city of Axum is not only the legendary home of the Queen of Sheba but also the reputed final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant, believed to hold the tablets of stone bearing the Ten Commandments, which Moses brought down from Mount Sinai. Take a boat across Lake Tana to island monasteries filled with ancient manuscripts and beautiful frescoes. The trip ends in Lalibela, with its mysterious 700-year-old rock-cut churches. In late September the Meskel festival will be in full swing here, with dancing, feasting and a big bonfire all celebrating the discovery in the fourth century of the true cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.
- October we’ll be in Australia
