Greetings from Africa!
Hi bloggie friends! How are you? I am doing well and happy to report that I'm having the most amazing time on safari in Africa! We flew in to Kilimanjaro airport in Tanzania and started our journey in Arusha, Tanzania. The flight was long, though not without some fun adventure. We arrived a little late on our layover in Amsterdam, so we found ourselves literally running in a mad dash to our gate to catch our flight to Kilimanjaro airport. We thankfully made it in time with a few minutes to spare, but sadly, our luggage did not. So, picture me in my platform wedges with the thought of starting a safari in these cute, but impractical shoes. Fun, huh?! You guys are probably wondering why I wore platforms....well, I figured it couldn't hurt to have some cute comfy shoes on for the plane ride. While I did pack an extra change of clothes, it just didn't dawn on me that I wouldn't have my bags when I landed, so from the get go, we had to make do. All in all, our situation sorted itself out for the first few days and we were off on our safari...and it has been so incredibly amazing. I will try and figure out how to post some pics from my iPad, so, stay tuned. Needless to say, being one with nature has given me so much inspiration to incorporate in my crafting, so once I'm able to carve out some time to craft, I will definitely do so. It's getting late here and I need to get up early for a game drive tomorrow morning, so I'm going to say goodnight for now. We're headed to Ngorongoro Crater tomorrow and we're keeping our fingers crossed to see some lions, rhinos, and hippos! Ciao!
