                We got up and had a quick breakfast before saying bye to mom and dad…they are continuing on to Tanzania and Kendra and I are heading back to Nairobi to leave for home today.  The ride was easy compared to some of the other long and bumpy ones we’ve done over the past few...

                 We woke up early this morning because our game drive started at 6:30 this morning.  Unfortunately, after all of the excitement of last evening, it was hard to compare!!  We did see some cool things, however!  We saw lines and lines of elephants and zebras walking towards the marshy area for the day, which...

              I had such a great work out this morning!  I ran for almost a complete hour and did weights and it was great.  Cold or no cold I definitely needed to do some exercise!  Yeah! J                The drive out to Amboseli National Park was only about 4h which was so nice compared to the... Continue Reading →

                The bonus about not doing the balloon ride was that we were able to sleep in a bit this morning before heading out to meet up with the group – the downside is that the hotel didn’t get the right tent number and came and woke us up at 6am!  It was sad…but I’m... Continue Reading →

                 I had the best sleep ever last night.  I think both Kendra and I were sound asleep when my alarm went off at seven this morning.  It was great!                 Breakfast was good…seriously, hot chocolate makes me a very happy person!  And it was also nice because we left camp almost on time –...

               We woke up early this morning…to no water!  Thankfully my face cloth was still wet from last night and we have to use bottled water to brush our teeth anyway – so it wasn’t actually that big of a deal.  It was sad to say bye to our cute little cabins on the river…they...

                I woke up in the night to the coolest nature noises!  There was definitely a hippo right outside of our door making all kinds of noise around 3am as well as so many other unidentifiable noises!  It was pretty cool to wake up to, actually.                 It is much colder here than we anticipated. ...

                So the bell went off this morning at 12:45 am and I rushed to the window to see a huge bull elephant walking towards the waterhole on our side of the Ark!  I pulled on a fleece and more or less ran to the open deck on our floor where the elephant stopped in... Continue Reading →

                Mom’s suitcase arrived late last night – so all is right with our trip now! J  We move hotels today, so it is really great that it arrived while we were still in the city.  Bonus!                  After a nice breakfast we somehow got all organized into our respective busses (which was seriously much...

                I managed to sleep in until about 5am this morning…and then turned on the light in our room which made me slightly unpopular with Kendra.  The gym only opens at 6am, but after playing cards on my computer, I gave up and headed down around 5:30…I was able to turn on the lights  and...
