This is it. The conclusion. I am sitting on a plane going to Doha and then onto JFK. It’s 8:30 PM or 12:30 in NYC.
How would I describe this trip? The trip was awesome. Imagine spending ten days in my favorite place in the world with my wife? Seeing her experience the beauty that keeps on bringing me back to Africa. Watching her see the migration and get the feeling that you could almost touch the wildlife. Her spending three nights with me in a Bush Camp. So what if it was a luxurious Bush Camp. It was to her liking
For me, the highlights were seeing a pride of lions in a tree, the group of four cheetahs and the rhinos. Those were just the highlights but the real highlight was having the beauty of Africa embrace my soul once again. I am at such piece of mind when that happens.
Onto the next adventure. In the middle of June I am going on a photography trip back to the African Bush. Uganda and Rwanda are calling me and the giant gorillas. I need to see them while I still can. Hopefully my friend and mentor, Andy, will be joining me. I love to travel with him. He always pushes my limits and we have experienced places I used to dream about. I am so glad I got to take pictures of the Chimps of Mahale in November. This has set me up for the gorillas and I know what to expect and will be prepared.
I am also planning on going to see a friend and fellow photographer who lives in Maine in May. We are planning a week of taking pictures of birds and the coastline.
Hopefully my pictures will be published within the next month and everyone will receive links to them.
