We have arrived in Africa – landed in Johannesburg last night and leave soon for East Africa (Tanzania) tomorrow morning. The Qantas flight from Sydney – although delayed some 3 hours – passed along the edge of Antarctica. The views were amazing – a white patchwork of broken sea ice and icebergs as far as the eye could see. Another world. Well, we are quite jet-lagged , but now bound for Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar in Tanzania.
I'm an Australian guy with a passion for traveling. I am especially interested in nature. My aim is to see the "main" animal species in the wild and the "major world sights" and by the time I retire. (Not when I retire - life is too short !) My blogs are a mix of information and a bit of comedy - the latter largely provided by my partner and long term traveling companion. The blogs are also a record for me myself, so I can read them with a smile when I am old and grey. Enjoy.... full info
