Home from Africa after an awesome trip................


The last photos I captured on my way from Mala Mala for the flight back to Johannesburg on Friday, were these sleepy gals at the side of the trail.  My return travel to North Carolina was a long 27 hours total, arriving here Saturday evening..........



..............so I'm feeling a lot like this myself!  How perfect though to return home from the trip of a lifetime.......oh yes it truly was........stretch out on my own bed and relive each amazing experience of the past three weeks.  I feel like a true adventurer having seen and done things I would never have imagined possible at this time of my life!


I have so much to share with you once I get over 2000 photos of Africa sorted.......so please be patient.........and know that I am already planning to return again!
