Out of Africa

Well, we’re back.

What a trip – three weeks in Africa, primarily in Tanzania with arrival and departure through Nairobi.  The safari was a highlight of my life and I really can’t put it into words, although I’m sure at some point I’ll try.  Big thanks to Jon and Gretch for hosting us in Nairobi for a couple days; Calabash Adventures (namely Tillya), for the trip organization (fantastic and great prices!); Dickson Manjano, our guide and new friend – what a fount of knowledge and just a wonderful person and, finally, my travel companions, Mum, Dad and Josée.  I think in the three weeks we pretty much didn’t have a cross word between us although I’m sure I got on their nerves at some point!

Anyway, what I’ve decided to do, rather than post 500 pictures and three hours of video, is prepare a short video trailer.  I’m going to make a series of a few movies which you can then view if you wish; I’ll also put together a slide show of the top pictures, in a similar style.  I hope to have this done in the next week or so and will post details here with links to my youtube account.

It was a great trip, I highly recommend the safari to anyone – a truly magical and amazing experience.  If you have questions or want to talk about the trip details, please let us know and we can arrange to have you over.  Enjoy my first video (if youTube puts an ad at the bottom, you can ‘x’ it out)!
