To say that I've been looking forward to this trip - would be the underestimation of the century. I went on safari around 11 odd years ago, but for many reasons the trip was blighted - since the day of my return I have promised myself that I would go back to Africa and take another safari one day - well...this is my one day.
I know that this trip will be awesome - I am going with John, I can practically guarantee that it doesn't matter what we see while we are there, it will be ace - he's my soul mate and when I count my lucky stars, I count him 10 times.
My parents are coming too - and those old sticks?? I want memories etched firmly into my head of them and who they are; I want to know them well.
During this summer I've had a great time, looking round castles, abbeys, cathedrals, going to festivals, trips to the coast and all manner of things - but for me ALWAYS the natural things in life come first. Natural beauty is beauty of the finest kind, it touches something deep within me and for me this trip is much more than a safari - it will iron out an uneasy feeling that has been with me every time I've thought about it over this period of time - the fact that I went all that way and never had the chance to experience this wonderful magical land in the way I wanted to. This time - is my time.
