“Being able to travel and see the world really makes me appreciate the blessings in my life. There are so many people that will never get a chance to see some of the things that I’ve seen during my travels. I’ll never take that for granted.” ~ Laz Alonso
I’ve been travelling all my life, nearly five decades all told, from when I was just a baby through to today. I still find it thrilling, transformative, educational and magical and I am deeply conscious of how very lucky I am to be able to indulge in this passion of mine.
If you too are a lover of travel, if you are fortunate enough to be able to go and see the world, then perhaps you’d like to join me in being thankful for our shared good fortune and joy.
We fell in love with Namibia the first time we visited, back in 2001. The wide expansive landscapes (especially of the Namib Rand Desert), the tenacity and beauty of the flora and fauna, the warm welcome from our hosts, and our many magical experiences all served to identify this as a favourite and somewhere we wanted to return to. We went back a few years later in 2004, but that’s 13 years ago now so we’re long overdue a return to this beautiful land.
This photograph is of an Oryx, also known as a Gemsbok, striking not only for it’s large size but for it’s beautiful markings and impressive horns.
