“She is a paradox. She is faithful yet detached. She is committed yet relaxed. She loves everyone, and yet no one. She is sociable yet also a loner. She is gentle and yet tough. She is passionate but can also be platonic. In short, she is unpredictable in her predictability.” – Taken from Linda Goodman’s sun signs for Aquarius women.
I grew up with one of the seven wonders of the world as my playground. After school activities included bungee jumping from a 111 meter high gorge, and instead of birthday parties, I would take my friends white water rafting. I have known since I was a child that there is no better way to start the day that a walk at sunrise with the elephants, and nothing more soothing to the soul than to lazily drift down the Zambezi River, waving at a pod of hippo. I have been chased by warthogs, eaten Mopani worms, been pricked by devil thorns, laughed at baby impala learning to walk and cried over the birds I found abandoned on the roads. If home is where the heart is, then mine will forever remain in Victoria Falls. This blog is about a wonderful and wild life growing up there, and hopefully about adventures soon to come as I explore others gems this world has to offer.
