As much as I want to run off and migrate to the warmth, I will stay. I will sit my little bottom down and write. FOR YOU GUYS! Because I love you. Oh, and my passport being renewed is probably also helping keep me homebound for the next 4 weeks.I can’t complain though, as it’s all too easy to enjoy the winter days on my comfy couch, writing late into the night and sipping on a warm cup of Dilmah rose and French vanilla tea. I even bought some chirping crickets so I can pretend my crackling fire is in the wilderness at a campsite. Perhaps I should invest in some croaking frogs next.
I’m finally getting into the real swing of things. It’s funny how no matter how hard I try, I get my inspiration after midnight and well into the night/morning.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for another travel memoir, our good friend Ben Southall … recently released his book “The Best Job in the World”. The family met Ben and his Land Rover, Colonel Mustard in Ghana, West Africa. He was on his Afritrex adventure to circumnavigate Africa and conquer 5 mountains and 5 marathons to raise money for charity. We shared many great adventures as a group for the nearly 8 months we travelled together through over a dozen countries. It’s brief, but you can get a glimpse of our African adventures, through Ben’s lens in his memoir.
I can’t wait to write my version of Africa. What an incredible adventure it was! 36 African countries, many of which were spent in this Yellow Beast and with Ben Southall’s Colonel Mustard along side.
I will never forget having to tackle the intense highways in the Cameroon jungle crossing in from Nigeria.
If you want a sneak preview of our African travels, and a good memoir, pick this one up!
