Where would you like to be right now?

I have a fairly long wait before my next trip. For some reason today is a missing Kruger day.

This is where I would like to be. The S1.

What about you?

Can relate very well to your feelings MM :hmz:

Nice thread you have started MM :thumbs_up:

Mine would be anywhere in Kruger traveling the roads soaking up all the sights, sounds and smell..with views that leave you breathless.

right now I would like to be sitting at Pretoriuskop swimming pool, under the trees, still damp from a refreshing swim, with the slight smell of sunblock and the park filling my nostrils, anticipating our lunchtime braai at our accommodation,comprising of lemon and herb chicken, green salad, and a very cold glass or two of Southern Comfort and ginger ale, and of course with the good company of my hubby and brat. :D :D :D

It is good that a person has the ability to change one’s mind :hmz:. also the question is in the present tense :). Yesterday it was Shingwedzi but this morning I would choose sitting on a bench overlooking the Letaba river. A person can look far into the Kruger from those benches. Perhaps it is that ability to see the Kruger “farness” or the way the river bends that I yearn for today, not sure how to descibe it but there is where I would like to be right now.

Right now I want to be on the S100, the road everybody loves to hate.
We missed Kruger so much yesterday and knowing that we will only be going there in September 2014 we booked a short stint to go in March :dance:

Like Grantmissy, I have used my prerogative to change my mind.

Today I would like to be sitting on this bench.

I would like to stand on the Malelane bridge, knowing that I have a full trip ahead :dance:
