An Elephant in my Suitcase
I am a child of Africa, born in Zimbabwe and grew up on a beautiful tobacco and cattle farm. I’ve moved countless times and do not really know where I want to put down my forever roots.
My stories are short spurts of adventures through life all over, how and where I travel, funny happenings and the harsh reality of depression who most of us have met.
You are here to escape the humdrum of life and boring chores in small bites, between hanging the washing and going to the next office meeting.
You’ll discover I am cautious though adventurous. An extroverted introvert. And, just like you, hungry to discover new things, the why of the way we feel, new cultures and countries – and hey, ho – everyday life through fresh eyes.
My packing advice is to take your passport, medical kit, credit card .. and your smile.
Sarajevo – as I cross the River Miljacka, where east meets west, I tumble my fingers over many rusty love locks intertwined onto the bridge railings – wondering what secrets they, and the capital city of Bosnia & Herzegovina, have to share with me on this journey
I plunged myself into the depths of IT and into the bowels of computer speak, media platforms and all sorts of scary stuff that made no sense…. just to begin a blog…. to keep the brain active after 50-something
You have asked “why did you name your blog An Elephant in my Suitcase” which is not all about elephant, though I love these giants of the wild, but stories of my life and travel memoirs. Thank you for the question
