Tomorrow we leave Somerset-West for the Kalahari. One Landcruiser (my husband’s mistress), two boys, two teenagers (soon to be uncoupled from their i-phones like satellites thrown into orbit), too much food and far too many bags of thingsjustincase.
This blog will hopefully chart our progress, both the highs and lows. I invite you to share this two-week journey with us and hope that it’s an ‘awesome’ ride, as the boys would say!
For me the trip is sure to unlock some old memories but hopefully it will also be about making new ones. I hope the magic of the Kgalagadi will rest in small hearts and open big souls. And that’s probably as lyrical as it’s going to get….because after ten hours in the car with four children I expect my view on the world may have altered somewhat.
Alarm set. 3am wake-up!
