Out of Africa - the Kenya experience. . . . . . .

FRICA awaits. . . . . . . 

Bags packed and ready for the airport later today.
This evening we'll be on our way, full of hope that the journey
 goes without hitches, and happy to be heading back to the amazing
 African continent.
First time for us in Kenya. Plans are to see some very exciting
 places along with many game drives on the Masai Mara plains.

If you haven't read this book, or seen the fabulous movie with the same title
 starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, you may want to. 
I've done both, several times. . . . . . .and they always remain at the top
 of my favorites list. Now I'm hoping for an even more exciting experience
surrounding this wonderful true and somewhat sad story - more on that later!


  1. I loved the book. Looking forward to your travel details.

  2. Oh how I wish I could travel here. I absolutely loved the movie of The Out of Africa.

  3. I'll see the move.

    Safe travels and good wishes to you and Bob!


  4. Have a safe journey! The long flight would put me off, but I know if you want to see faraway places, you have to put up with long flights - or even longer sea journeys.

  5. I am so excited Mary; can't wait to hear all about it. Out of Africa, the movie is a fav, but have never read the book. Must be so different now than in Dinesan's day.

  6. One of my favourite movies and books. You'll be there soon - enjoy every moment!

  7. Safe journey My granddaughter returned yesterday from Kenya and the experience of her lifetime.

  8. Safe travels, Mary! What a wonderful experience.

  9. Now I want to read Out of Africa again...I loved the book and the movie, though it has been too long and I know that I would enjoy it all over again. I hope that by now you have arrived and that uneventfully. A good journey to you...

  10. Can't wait for the stories and the photos......excited about all of these...

  11. Enjoy your trip! I can't wait for the pictures


  12. It's one of my fave books too Mary!
    This will be a trip of a lifetime.
    Have fun - I know you and Bob will make the most of every minute!

  13. OK, so did this all live up to everything you had expected and hoped? I know you had a great time and such otherwise.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
