What's the first thing you do when you return home from a Kruger trip?

I start planning the next trip :D -

As our trip is coming to an end we start making plans for our next trip BUT the first thing we do after a trip once we have got home is....... unpacking (the worst job of all),then I do all the washing and then we start downloading all the photographs and remembering everything about our holiday then the countdown starts again till next time

MM, you are so right, we pick up Coco (our cat) from the cattery on our way back from the park, she is usually very, very happy to see us BUT likes to act as if she isn't

Give our two doggies big hugs, they put in a few wet licks as well but it is perfectly fine and then phone up the Reservation Office for the next booking.

Well seeing that we arrive home on New Years Eve I park the caravan have a shower and then head off to the local for a fantastic New Years Eve Party.
Following morning Ross unpacks the caravan whilst I mow the lawn (not been cut for 2 weeks) to get rid of the babalaas. (It`s the truth)

Watch the video of the trip and wish I was still there! But most of all, I count my blessings that we are able to experience the bush among :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: the animals, birds and critters in Kruger.

How special!

The important thing is to look at what, if anything, was not to your liking. Make a list of what you have taken with you that was not needed, and what have you forgot to take. Make a list of the good things and the bad things. In my army years we called it 'oefening galbraak'
