I’m back! My two month stay in South Africa was amazing and I’m still trying to handle the huge mass of memories, experiences and of course photos and come back to my “normal live” at the same time.
In a short time I will start my TR. Until now, I have no idea how to upload photos to the forum. I read a lot about that on the forum but I’m still not sure about the easiest way. There is almost too much information on the forum. But I’m confident that I will learn it over the weekend.

During my trip, I met a lot of wonderful people (and some idiots as well), I managed to avoid cold fronts and heavy rainfalls and had wonderful weather, I enjoyed the beauty of the flora and fauna, I admired the big effort for nature conservation in the national parks and game reserves and mostly I appreciated to have time. There was no need to rush, a lot of time to relax and I could really dive very deeply into another world.
It was a wonderful time.
