Travel Djibouti

by Anne Middleton, on December 3rd, 2015

Djibouti may be a small African nation on the Gulf of Aden, however if the hustle and bustle of major African and Middle Eastern tourist traps makes you bristle, then it may be a fine choice for an adventure.  If you want to go off-the-beaten path, trek through Djibouti with us. 

Djibouti has been inhabited since Neolithic times and the first Afroasiatic-speaking populations arrived in the region during this period from the family's proposed urheimat in the Nile Valley or the Near East. Pottery predating the mid-2nd millennium has been found at Asa Koma.  As a nod to Djibouti’s antiquity, look at the Navie sandal by UGG.  Use our codes and get free shipping and free returns on your orders.

Lake Abbe, on the border with Ethiopia, is Djibouti’s salt lake.  A geological wonder, the lake is the nexus of the three pieces of the Earth's crust, a defining feature of the Afar Depression. Here three pieces of Earth’s crust are each pulling away, though not all at the same speed.  Would-be geologists will need comfortable sneakers to traipse around this lake.  Check out the limestone chimneys and flamingos donning the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II.  Get $5.95 flat rate shipping with our codes. 

The nation has only one five star hotel, but it’s impressive.  The Dijibouti Palace Kempinski boasts two infinity pools, a kid’s club and a world-class spa.  The hotel even offers personal training and group fitness and tennis.  If you need to reinvigorate yourself after a long business trek, pause in Djibouti.  Boston Proper has the shoes you need for this five star resort.  Wear their Embellished Sandal poolside and get 10% off your order when you sign up for emails from Boston Proper. 

A small nation, Djibouti offers simple pleasures.  Whether you go to Djibouti for the sake of going or it’s a stop along your trek, travel in great shoes.  Geological wonders, rich history and five star resorts await you in Djibouti.  Shop with our codes, put your shoes on and go!
