Southern Africa 2008

Southern Africa 2008

Ala kulli hali...

Ever since I was a kid and saw that nature show featuring a chimp travelling the African savannah in a jeep, observing the wildlife, I've wanted to go there. And so, since I'm still a kid at heart but have slightly more money, the course is set for those African skies! The amazing nature, the rhythm and music and culture, the big five, the cradle of mankind and let's not forget the sipping of cool umbrella drinks in a hammock hanging from a palmtree by a tropical beach.
Africa, baby!

Applying for, and receiving, time off

A trip starts with a thought. I know that. And after the thought comes an idea, and a plan, and possibly a strategy. And that's all fine. However, to make a dream of far off lands come true one has to find the time to leave. And therefore, as of today, my African trip of 2008 has officially started, since I did as the headline implies.
Sometime around mid-February through all of March I'll be wearing khakis and a pith helmet, hunting* down the big five** and generally be amazed by that awesome continent right south of mine.
But miles to go and all that. Flights, safari bookings, visas and vaccinations has to be taken care of prior to departure, and thus the blogging comes early this year.
And those words heading the 'about me'-column to the right and the 'about the blog'-paragraph above are my feeble attempt at Swahili. With reservations for probable misspelling and less-than-impressive grammar they are meant to mean:

Ala kulli hali... Anyway...
