Hi there, thank you for visiting ………………..
When you amble through “an Elephant in my Suitcase ” you will probably get the impression that all I have ever done is travel
Like many people, travel, vacations, weekends away and days out have been fitted inbetween –
School, Emigrating, Studies, feeling lonely,
Working, hating my Job, moving Towns/Cities, Death & Loss
Marriage, getting Pets, Divorce, Depression, Moving, Crying, being poor,
Marriage, Moving again, New Jobs, falling in Love
The inception of my blog came about due to sleepless nights –
…. as my mind played its videos of amazing places and spaces, wierd experiences, funny people, terrifying moments
The photos do not do justice to any experience but at least there are recorded memories to share
My cameras have been basic – remember the cameras with spools of 24 or 32 photos to be developed at the shop? Yup …. from age 2 – 40!
What I carry now is a small instamatic and my mobile phone.
Both fit snugly into our lifestyle of minimalistic luggage and handbag, so the best must be made of what they can record
My Parents & Sister liked to find different and interesting things to do in Zimbabwe (the beautiful land of my birth), South Africa & Mozambique
This taste continued when I was single and backpacked / hiked with social organisations within South Africa (the new country which adopted me) – discovering in a simplistic affordable way on foot
From my first marriage to the love of my life now I have discovered other continents and cultures
You might ask – what do I like the most?
Which Countries, Islands, travel Style, Accommodation, Nature or City – Oh gosh – ALL! lol
So, come along and join in on my Story………………….
