Dear Family, Forum Members and Friends
In a few hours I will be on a plane to South Africa to start My Trip!!
I cannot believe a thought that started just over 2 years ago, and was planned to happen in 7 years time, then reduced to 4 and then to 2 years, has now become a reality!
Before I embark on this mission, I would like to thank a few people who have helped to make this dream a reality.
First of all to my husband, who have been very supportive and understands the “need” for me to go and “Live My Dream”. I will always remember your love, support and help (oh, and the monthly allowance!) and know that by being apart for this long, for the first time in our lives, is going to make us stronger and our love will carry on forever! Just know I will dream of you every night!! (Just leave a can of Blue Stratos behind!)
Our Girls (Megan and Carmen) I thank you both for your understanding and although you live hectic and full lives, I look forward to seeing you both in Kruger!
The Family (especially Ants, Jen, Susan, Nico and Yula), Forum members (too many to mention, but Stomstom who gave me the inverter) and Friends (anyone who knows me or have heard of me) who have given me so much advice and support. I truly hope to bring Kruger closer to you all and look forward to all your comments and questions.
Sanparks for giving me the opportunity to blog on this site, thank you! Di and Gwen who really “pushed” me to make this happen sooner, I miss all the communication we had before, but also hope that you will both continue to read my posts and know that you had a part to play in this! Nedret and Mel for helping me through the tutorial of the blog and answering so many questions, sometimes silly, but you never said that! I will try my best to make this blog the best there is and always remember your support as well.
Todd at Wildlife campus for offering me the courses on offer so that I can hopefully give you some useful information learned from doing these courses.
ELS Language Center, Helen and Dominic…thank you for the opportunity to teach at the center and make this dream a reality..I will never forget your support and my students ! Im glad I had the opportunity to bring English to those who really wanted to learn! It was an experience I will never forget!
Last, but certainly not least, my employer QIPCO Holdings, Said, Kareem, Fatima, Nick (and wife Bernie) and everyone else, thank you for understanding!! At least now you got “rid” of the animal woman!! A special note to Mr. Said, your understanding will never be forgotten, I hope that one day I can show you and your family the “magic” that Kruger offers……Kareem, maybe you will never experience it as there are no “stock markets” to watch!!! Fathima I look forward to seeing you in Kruger soon!!
Finally, I certainly hope you will all be part of this trip and I look forward to bringing all my news, photos and videos from Kruger! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and I will try my best to answer them all!
Until the next post from South Africa!!
