As some of you know, I am headed to Africa tomorrow for 6 weeks on a trip I have dreamed of since I was a girl. Something about the continent has always drawn me to it. I will be blogging as I travel, as well as posting photos. We start in Rwanda with a Gorilla Safari and a visit to Dian Fossey’s grave and old research camp. Following that we fly to Nairobi to begin a 5 week Nairobi to Cape Town overland safari.

The main challenge so far has been fitting everything for a 6 week odyssey into 1 duffel bag. There are books written about how to pack efficiently – now I Ā understand why :-) Tomorrows flight is an overnight flight to Amsterdam. We have a day to sightsee in the city and then fly on to Kigali Rwanda the following day.

I will look forward to sharing my travels with you all.
