Living the dream... vicariously

Now, if you think I have a good life (and I do), living in Africa's great national parks for six months of the year and the land of no bottled water for the remainder, then you should pop over and have a look at this blog on the South African National Parks website.

The blog's author, Martie, is a South African woman who has been living abroad, but has returned to SA to spend a year in Kruger, living her dream. Yes, that's right, a year camping in the Kruger National Park.

Martie posts pictures of the animals and birds she's seen each day, and shots taken in the camps.

If you like Africa, Kruger, or wildlife, you'll love it.

There is some really awesome photography on that site, makes you want to shutdown your computer,pack up and leave Joburg.
One could get used to living like that,right Mr Park?

And with any luck I'll get to meet the lady when we are in Satara at the same time :)

Wow, that's a lovely site & the photos are so beautiful. I have just "lost" an hour through being totally enthralled by Martie - she is certainly living my dream !
Maybe I'll get lucky in tonights' Powerball & get there too....

Timepilot - have fun (must admit though that I am a bit jealous) on your travels.
PS : Sally Henderson's new book "Ivory Moon is now out - it promises to be just as engrossing as "Silent Footsteps".

Only a little over two weeks to wait for Tony's "Ivory", beautiful cover & all, but who's counting ?

Les said...

I'm counting Dozy we still have six weeks to wait.

Oh Les, that's not fair on you at all ! If you want I could send you a copy so you don't have as long a wait ??
But at least you are in the right location to pack up your computer (mine's called F.R.E.D.) & head up the highway to Kruger.....I could, quite happily, stick FRED in the bin at any time with no incentive required at all.

Les said...

Thanks Dozy that's kind of you.If you don't know where to go TP's books are hard to find here.

I don't think my boss would like to see his imac in the bin but as you say it can be done with no incentive.

dozycow said...

Les: I doubt that my boss would like it either (but then that would be his problem), however he does know what I think of FRED & has been duly warned....
Seriously though, if you want me to send you a copy of Ivory then just email me your details - cheers

Thanks very much Dozy I will keep that in mind,actually we are hoping to go to the launch of Ivory when TP is in SA.
