Africa Week- Wine Tasting

While in Africa, I got to check off number 43 from my 101 list- “go wine tasting again.” Kimbo planned an awesome day for us in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek regions of South Africa (about a 45 minute drive from Cape Town). There’s not too much to say about wine tasting other than it was beautiful, delicious and we all got […]...continue reading →

Africa Week – What Not to Do

When you’re driving through a Namibian desert that looks like THIS: This is what you DON’T want to happen: Unfortunately for us… this  clearly DID happen. Fortunately for us we had a spare… and three boys who know how to change a tire. I’m pretty sure we were all silently praying during the next 1.5 hours of driving on desert gravel […]...continue reading →

Africa Week- Climbing Mountains, Part 1

One of the things I hate doing most in life is climbing up hills and mountains. I’ve only really come to discover this after moving to Sydney where I have been forced to walk up hills to get anywhere. Orange County is SO flat in comparison. Africa was the perfect place to challenge myself in the hill department! The first few […]...continue reading →

Africa Week- Our Arrival

So we’re finally back in Sydney after 3 awesome weeks in Africa. I had NO internet connection on my computer the entire time we were there so I was limited to using our friends’ net. I didn’t want to eat up all their bandwidth by posting too many blogs and photos so unfortunately everyone has had to wait for any real […]...continue reading →
