Well…since our last post we have been offline together….which has been great as a team. We arrived at our guest house in the game park last night….and we had an evening as a team to sit around a bonfire, enjoy an amazing BBQ meal, and to embrace an evening without any requirements but to sit and tell stories, hear Paul give us a mini-concert, and just laugh together….a lot. The place we were at was beautiful….a real gift to experience.
We woke up at 4:30 AM for our safari drive and headed out to Kruger National Park for a 4 1/2 hour game drive. It was so great! We saw a heard of elephants with a brand new infant that did some performing for us…..we saw giraffes, wildebeests, hyenas, rhinos, zebras and buffalo amongst many other pretty sites. Lots of picture clicking and lots of fun.
We are now 18 hours into our travels and sitting waiting for our flight from Frankfurt to Toronto. We will be on Canadian soil in about 10 hours from now…..I think we are all looking forward to being reunited with our families again! We are scheduled to arrive in Winnipeg at 4:08 PM on Friday.
We will still load a few more updates….but for now we head off into the skies again and home is now in our sights and hearts. We are doing well as a group….a couple of under the weather team members, but spirits are still high in the middle of our weariness.
Thanks for following along with us! More pics to follow.
