We have been home for over twelve months now (I still can’t believe it has been that long), and I have one final blog from our trip to get out. It has been written in my mind all this time and finally I can transfer it here to stop it from changing as time moves. I am sure it has already altered in some ways, but I am not overly concerned as I think the essence of the place stays with you long a... Read Full Entry

Nice, I too felt the same way about Uganda, and when I mention my feelings to anyone that has not been to Africa, they just don't understand. Us that have been, get it.

Yep, it is difficult to articulate the magic of the place. Words just never seem to do it justice. It is nice to know that I am not the only one!

Fab photos, fearless one!
Congrats on conquering a fear, which is no mean feat! I'm a fearless nutcase, but I really appreciate the courage it takes for a regular person to jump into Devil's Pools and walk on ledges.

Slack blocker, me!
I guess if you're writing about your adventures from a year ago, I don't have to feel so bad about being so behind in my blogging though I'm even worse--thanks so much for asking. So sorry you didn't enjoy the jump--I'd imagined you'd conquered your fear and then reveled in your new freedom. How wise that you realized you don't need to do that again and can just trust that inner voice.
