So… here we are with exactly 2 weeks to go before the big day. Things are getting very exciting now, the closer we get to the start of this adventure, the more exciting it gets!
For the first time in our history we actually feel that we’re going on this trip more organised than we have ever been before. We have purchased all our clothes for the Safari, remembering that it is advised not to wear bright coloured clothes on Safari and that clothing needs to be light but warm because of luggage allowances. So with this in mind we have purchased lightweight Safari clothing, hiking boots and hats. Well … Anaconda had a sale on outdoor clothing so we made a beeline there, and bought up! Only problem is we will look like the Bobbsey Twins because we’ve got the exact same clothing .. and hats!!! Anyway not to worry, we are organised, not packed yet but all our safari stuff is loaded on the spare bed, ready to be packed. The to-do list is getting smaller … YAY!
Our travel book arrived on Friday, “Lonely Planet Southern Africa”, which Karen proceeded to read excerpts from on the way to the Gold Coast yesterday The more she read, the more excited we got about the whole thing!
