Linda in the Skeleton Coast Park in Namibia
I’m inviting you to come
along on some of my trips
People always ask me,
“What was
Brussels like?...
What was Burma like..
and Bali…and
Thailand… England…France...Ireland…
Scotland…and Italy?”
So this is the first of many
trips for you to explore
with me.

Have you ever been on a trip that completely surprised you with its “God Given” beauty?...Well…This was that kind of trip...I went to Botswana…Namibia…and South Africa…but the Boulders Camp in Singita was the “animal star” of them all. A place never to be forgotten…the people were lovely and accommodating…always smiling and willing to make you feel comfortable and protected at every turn. The accommodations are “fairy tale like” in their effort to take you away from your everyday life…and drop you in a place of magic. But…the thing that most surprised me was how close you get to the animals.

I shot with a 500 millimeter lens…but still you can see how close to wild animals I must have been.  It was thrilling to just sit and watch what evolved…I’d awaken in the morning and watch baboons frolicking outside my tent…wild cats…gorgeous sleek creatures…the elephants were massive, adorable giants… frolicking in alligator laden streams…The rhino…hippo… and King of them all, the lion…all make for splendid theater.

In Northern Namibia…near the Angolan Border is an uninhabited area called the Skeleton Coast.  There I was introduced to a nomadic Aborigine tribe known as the Himba.

They are goat herders who travel the desert with very little… they are covered with red mud…from head to toe… and are friendly, beautiful people…After a very slow introduction through an interpreter…the Himba accepted me and allowed me to see their camp and showed me their crafts. I bought jewelry from the littlest children…and from the oldest adults.

I’ve also gone on another trip to Cape Town where I purchased some of the serpentine sculptures created by Artisans of Zimbabwe. As soon as they arrive I’ll show them to you. 

P.S. Next stop is the countryside of England…and the city of London. Let’s see what I find...
