Even normal domestic travel can have its nasty twists and turns. Expect the unexpected. My experience of the release of reformed alcoholics set free on a train destined for home. Eye opening for an 18-year-old farm girl!
The weather in Africa is unpredictable. We set out mid summer only to be blown away by crazy, under a dark threatening cloudcover.
However, for us this day, exploring Kruger on a miserable day turned into a magical outing.
I am a child of Africa, born in beautiful Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and grew up on a beautiful Tobacco Farm. I've moved many many times and do not really know where I want to put my forever roots down. I have fun doing everyday things away from my home, trying to see the wonderment of life through the eyes of a child. A day out, weekend away, week away...... And months' travelling hold magical memories and events. These are what make me who I am - cautious, adventurous, fun loving & hungry to discover colours, countries, geography, cultures and experiences... and I'm normal too ... tiring travel makes me frowny too sometimes. .... and my packing advice is take... passport, medical kit, credit card and your smile
