Where Have I Been?

So, what did I do in South Africa, I hear you ask? Well, here’s a quickfire list for you. It was so much more than this list, but I’m writing a book about it all, so you’ll have to read that to get more details!

  • I rode a horse in the mountains, overlooking the beautiful scenes.
  • I sat in a huge truck as we explored an African safari, seeing the likes of lions, monkeys, wildebeest, rhino, hippos and more.
  • I tried African food.
