Massimo Romance in Kruger Dec 2010

Unread postby Massimo » Thu Dec 02, 2010 11:31 am

Good day to you all!

So i have been counting down the sleeps and now im done to 10 sleeps till i will be heading off to Kruger! This will be my third trip to Kruger but one that will never be forgotten. I had booked 4 nights at Lower Sabie and 2 nights at pretoriskop. ( I booked it in Feb ,i think :hmz: , so had no plans in mind just Kruger). But as the months went on i decided take the next step and propose to my lovely lady!

I have been with my lady for close to 4 and a half years and now its time to take it to the next step.
I found out the other day that she thought i was going to propose to her the last time we came down (we stayed at Kruger Park Lodge) but i knew she knew so i did not do it.

So i got moving and decided to get the ring (busy getting made and should be ready next week). And then i looked for a nice lodge to propose! Had a look at Sabie Sands but WOW :big_eyes: they are so expensive. So i kept looking and found a place at Mjejane River Lodge. But the only dates they had are the 15Dec 2010 so that means i have to cancel my reservation at Pretoriskop. So i did it and will be doing 4 nights at Lower Sabie and then 3 nights at Mjejane (which if im not mistaken is still in Kruger :dance: :dance: )

I have also just purchased new camera gear so i hope to get some good photos and will post them when we get back.

Let me here what you guys think i should propose! I do have a plan in mind but would like to hear your opinion.

:thumbs_up: enjoy your day
