It's been two weeks since Jodi Sta. Maria and son Thirdy flew to South Africa for a safari vacation.
Before leaving, the Kapamilya actress told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Ito yung plinano na namin last year pa.
“Si Thirdy kasi, mahilig talaga siya sa mga animals at nanonood talaga siya ng channels na nagpi-feature ng mga animals sa wilds.
“Naisip ko na magugustuhan niya kung actual niyang makikita ang mga animals na napapanood niya."
Based on the photos she posted on Instagram, the two had so much fun!
Here's a peek into their itinerary.
1. Awesome wildlife in Nairobi, Kenya
2. Communing with nature in Victoria Falls
About three quarters of it lie within Zimbabwe, the other side is in Zambia.
Nature is one of God's beautiful creations. Through nature He is able to teach us, speak to us, and provide for us. ? I am thankful Lord for all You've done and for giving us the ability to appreciate Your creation. Ps 19:1 " The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Romans 1:20 " For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." Hello everyone! Sending our love from Livingstone, Zimbabwe ??????? Blessings!
According to Jodi, the falls is called Mosi-oa-Tunya in the native language which means "the smoke that thunders."
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Called in the native language as Mosi-oa-tunya which literally means "The smoke that thunders" The Zambezi River, the river that forms the falls is the 4th largest African river after the Rive Nile, River Congo, and River Niger. Discovered by Scottish physician, explorer, and missionary Dr David Livingstone in 1855 he named the falls after Victoria his British queen. The falls is approximately 1700m wide making it the biggest curtain of water in the world. ???Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Aside from the beauty and power of the Victoria Falls, I was moved upon seeing the rainbow. When I became a Christian I never looked at rainbows the same way again. They became a reminder of God's faithfulness and amazing grace. God made a promise to Noah, and his descendants as well as every living creature that the earth will never be again destroyed by flood (Genesis 9:11) God's promise does not depend upon what we do, but is based on His faithfulness alone. Because of His faithfulness He will do what He says He will do! Blessings! ?
3. Beautiful sunrise
It is really nice to wake up in the morning realizing that God has given you another day to live. Thank You Lord for you faithfulness. Have you thanked Him today? Lamentations 3:22-23 "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
4. Seven Colored Earth in Mauritius
Jodi described it as a "small area of sand dunes comprising sand of 7 distinct colors (red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow)."
Seven Colored Earth Chamarel, Mauritius A natural phenomenon. It is a small area of sand dunes comprising sand of 7 distinct colors (red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow) What's fascinating is the fact that if you mix the colored earth together, they will eventually settle into separate layers. The Seven Colored Earth has become one of Mauritius' main tourist attractions since 1960. You will also find giant tortoises on the premises. Psalm 98:1 " O sing to the Lord a new song for He has done marvelous things!" Goodnight Manila! ????
Lastly, Jodi saw her 11-year-old son gape in awe.
