Really laughing my head off at Miranda Series 2 guys and girls, and also really enjoying the camaraderie between Indie authors on Twitter this week. I've made so many new friends and I can't wait to have time to delve into their work.
Now, back to my 29 of the best... Still in November 2005 and sticking with my favourite continent Africa, we stayed in some of the most beautiful lodges during a "flash" trip through Zambia and Botswana - flash because we zoomed around a lot of Bots in just a week and we were also reccing a new in style tour - but my highlight was actually the 1 night we wild camped. 3 things you can't beat when you're camping on safari - a loo with a view, a glorious bucket shower to wash away the sweat and the sand and the dust, and drinking beers around the fire under a jet black African sky. It was magical. That same day, we'd driven very very slowly through a dense herd of elephants, just us and the elephants and they were so close, you could reach out and touch them. I didn't take pictures because I didn't want to startle them, but that intimate encounter will stay with me forever. Words cannot do it justice.
Enjoy the piccies!
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
