Itchy feet. You can’t help it but you want to keep moving. It’s been just over three years since I’ve posted here, and a lot has happened and you want to keep moving on, but it is now time to get going. You can’t dwell in one place for too long, especially the Nordkapp car park, where unrecyclable meets the down right unappreciation for the environment. We left you with a vision of near holiness that is the Arctic summer and the midnight sun and left ourselves with with a sense of bitter disappointment at the sheer lack of appreciation some of our fellow humans have for the soil on which we dwell. So we are going on an another adventure, Oli and me, because we can, and because there’s lots to see and do on this wonderful planet of ours. You can choose to sit at home in HD and surround sound and watch the world pass you by, or you can get out there and discover it for yourself.
We are going to Africa, a continent we have never been to before. And we are going to Kenya on Safari, game watching in the traditional style, in tented camps, open to everything that wild Africa has to offer. From the high plains around Mount Kenya to the Maasai Mara. The migration is in full swing, so zebra and wildebeast are a given: we hope to see so much more though under the big African skies. It will be remote; we are not going the normal tourist route, opting instead for a more compact, eco-friendly experience. We’ve chosen a company that provides a tourism model that is kinder to the land and its inhabitants, mainly avoiding the big reserves, instead staying on established conservencies but within the same ecosystems.
We are embarking on another Big Blue adventure, but Big Blue will be staying at home!
