Driving the Garden Route

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015 in Africa, South Africa | Comments Off on Driving the Garden Route

I am in South Africa “working” for Renedian Adventures, and scouting our Garden Route Tour hotels and route so I can speak intelligently about the tour at the upcomiong trade shows. So I started out from Cape Town, and my first stop was a farm stall. Big business down here, with fruits & veggies, but also souvenirs, knick-knacks, pre-prepared food, and the must-try boutique root beer. I’m crazy about root beer and had to try it!   They were nice enough to tell me what I could expect in terms of recreation going up the pass: A beautiful day for a drive… The view from up top: View from the other direction: Twisting even further to see more of this amazing view: Up on the other side it’s wine country: With lovely rose bushes lining the fences: Wait, whut?...

Reasons to love LAX

Posted by on Oct 22, 2015 in Africa | Comments Off on Reasons to love LAX

Normally I don’t fly out of LAX, but it sure makes sense for international travel. Better rates and more direct flights. It was actually easy this time…perhaps because I arrived before 6 am! I had a fresh look at the airport, and it improved my trip. By the time I got to Atlanta I was more curious about airports and decided to look at the displays. Who knew that airports aren’t boring? There was a display on the Girl Scouts: There was also a display on Africa, but I am saving that for another post šŸ™‚ I also found out that there’s free parking at LAX…as long as you don’t take up a paying space that a car would use. Pretty cool to live in a motorcycle culture, eh? Turns out they’re all over Europe and South Africa. When...

Endings and Beginnings

Posted by on Nov 12, 2014 in Namibia | Comments Off on Endings and Beginnings

Well, I am no longer on Okambara. Today I fly home to the USA.Ā I’ve enjoyed my time there so much–sometimes more than others depending on the group dynamics–and I will always carry a piece of Okambara and the animals and my experiences there over the last two years with me. I spread the last of my Dad’s ashes this week while working here on the Biosphere Expedition’s NamibiaĀ projectĀ . I spread the first half into the Gulf Stream while working on Biosphere Expedition’s Azores project. It’s a time of endings–letting go–of regrets, what-ifs and long held beliefs. I won’t be returning to Namibia next year as I’ve decided to stay closer to home the next two years and focus on my own projects. I’ve also decided not to return to the Azores next year. It’s a time of beginnings because...
