Esperance to Busselton - The Final Chapter

January 4, 2015 - Busselton, Australia
I know yes I know. It has been such long time since I last wrote and by now, I’m sure you have been wondering what on Earth has happened to us all. Well last time I wrote, Pete had just put his back out and we were about to leave Esperance. Well we left Esperance and headed to the small camp spot at Munglinup Beach. Our plan was to stay for about a week, but we only stayed a couple of days.  It is a nice spot with defined camp sites and a couple of long drops. The local caravan park...

2 Kruger National Park

September 28, 2014 - Sheffield, United Kingdom
A very early start -5.15am, so packed breakfast necessary. Excellent Day. Very good ranger, lots and lots of sightings. Both of us became quite axcited about spotting the animals. Highlight must have been spotting the three cheetahs. On the way back we saw the leopard which completed the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and water buffalo). The evening local 'sing song' turned out better than expected. Young teenagers dancing and singing. Had lots of talent and great enthusiasm at...

1 Johannesburg and journey to the Kruger

September 25, 2014 - Sheffield, United Kingdom
Arrived on time in Jo'burg, very hot. After a long journey a shower and hugh lashings of coffee would have been more inviting than the Apartheid Museum. However we were very aware of the logistics and realised that was impossible until mid-afternoon. Arrived hotel 2pm. Welcoming drink and lunch. Rest in the afternoon and buffet meal in the evening. Long drive to Blyde River Canyon, mostly motorway. Still very hot (37'C). Canyon impressive, although view slightly spoilt by fires. Drive along...

Ein ereignisreiches Jahr

December 18, 2014
Unglaublich, aber nun bin ich schon zwei Jahre in Uganda. Die Zeit vergeht wirklich wie im Flug. Es gab viele erste Male, unsere Hochzeit, eure Besuche und nun unseren ersten Familienzuwachs. Unser Leben bleibt weiter aufregend und abwechslungsreich! Vieles ist aber auch Alltag geworden und es fällt mir immer schwerer Dinge zu finden, über die ich schreiben könnte. Aber vielleicht ist ja gerade meine „Routine“ für euch spannend. Gerade sind die „Reste“ der letzten...

Nicht von mir

November 7, 2014 - Neiva, Colombia
Hola, nicht von mir aber es bewegt mich grad: Hermann Hesse Stufen Wie jede Blüte welkt und jede JugendDem Alter weicht, blüht jede Lebensstufe,Blüht jede Weisheit auch und jede TugendZu ihrer Zeit und darf nicht ewig dauern.Es muß das Herz bei jedem LebensrufeBereit zum Abschied sein und Neubeginne,Um sich in Tapferkeit und ohne TrauernIn andre, neue Bindungen zu geben.Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne,Der uns beschützt und der uns hilft, zu leben. Wir sollen heiter Raum um Raum...

Philippines

October 31, 2014 - Bantayan, Philippines
Been on Bantayan island for 9 days now. Finding it hard to leave. Perfect white sand, empty beaches. Clear_ warm water. Beer at one pound per litre. Food cheap. Decent room at 7 pound a night. Cold shower of course. Enjoyed travelling with my daughter, Eleanor. We were together in Thailand for a week. She is 21 and was overwhelmed by Bangkok, and rightyly so. She is currently travelling on her own in SE Asia. Big respect to her. Travelling alone is hard, and at 21 and for the first time in...

Peru

September 30, 2014 - Cuzco, Peru
Hola, es wird Zeit, von Peru zu berichten. Hier waren wir vom 9. September bis ungefähr zum 26. September, also fast 3 Wochen. Peru ist wunderbar. Als wir in Cuzco landeten, ohne, dass wir vorher geschlafen hätten, waren wir erstaunlich wach. Es ist ein wunderbarer Ort. Es liegt in einem Hochtal in den Anden, umgeben von noch mehr und noch höheren Bergen. Schon als ich in die Stadt hineinfuhr, ging es mir gut. Wir fanden unser VIP Hostel schnell und fanden uns in einem toll...

Vliegen met Aat

September 22, 2014 - Moshi, Tanzania
Zo vlak voor mijn vertrek naar Nederland heb ik het Tanzaniaanse luchtruim mogen verkennen met een zelfgebouwd mini-vliegtuigje, een kitfox (5H-WKF). Aat, een gepensioneerde Nederlander, die al jaren in Tanzania woont, nam me mee in een wild plan. Hij wilde graag vanuit de lucht foto’s maken van Mambo View Point, een prachtige lodge gelegen in het Usambara gebergte, op 1.5 uur vliegen hier vandaan. Hij vroeg aan mij of ik hem daarbij wilde helpen, dat voelde als een enorme eer. Het...

2. Paraguay

September 18, 2014 - Asunción, Paraguay
  Hola, Paraguay betraten wir, indem wir mit dem Bus von Iguazu über Brasilien die Grenzbrücke zu Ciudad del Este überquerten. Als wir dann in Paraguay waren mussten wir im Migrationsbüro einen Einreisestempel abholen. Unser Bus ließ uns raus und fuhr fort, obwohl ich auf den Rat der netten Mitfahrer hin den Busfahrer darum gebeten hatte, dass er auf uns wartete. Also standen wir am Grenzübergang ohne wirklichen Plan, wie wir zu unserem Ziel gelangen konnten. Im Touristenbüro gab man...

JoBurg

September 7, 2014
Today, we got up and went to the Apartheid museum. Obviously, I learned about the Apartheid in school, but entering through separate doors, reading the stories,  and seeing the exhibits really humbled me. It saddens me that throughout history europeans have come to lands that is not theirs, kill the natives, steal the land, and feel justified in their doings. How can you sleep at night? I had no idea about the severity of the Apartheid. It reminded me a lot of segregation in the United...

Boats, Lamb, & Ostrich

September 6, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
Today, we got up early and took a boat cruise on the river near the Vaal Dam. I love being on the water! It is so relaxing and soothing. We danced, sang, and ate. The food was delicious! In South Africa, the primary dish is meat not a lot of fruits and vegetables lol. We eat a lot of meat here lol. After the boat ride, we headed back to Johannesburg for a night on the town. We went to Moyo's. Thre was a lot of excellent food! We had a party platter appetizer, and I had ostrich salad and a...

Safaris and Fun

September 5, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
Today, we woke up early to go on a safari! Most images displayed of Africa in general are scenes of huts, animals, hungry children. I have not experienced this Africa. Instead, I've experienced a city just like any major city with luxury cars, restuarants, chic hangout spots, etc. However, today...we are off to see a different side of the country! We pulled into a red dirt park, the lion and hippo park. We drove to the back of the park where we had lunch. Immediately, I noticed the stares. My...

Al het materiaal in één doktersjas!

September 9, 2014 - Moshi, Tanzania
Ik ben gevraagd om voor de weblog van de opleiding logopedie aan de HAN in Nijmegen af en toe een verhaal te schrijven over mijn werk hier in Tanzania. Met alle plezier heb ik onderstaand verhaal geschreven: Sinds eind november 2013 werk ik als vrijwilliger in het Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Moshi, Tanzania. Dit is het tweede academische ziekenhuis van Tanzania, een land dat ongeveer 45 miljoen inwoners heeft en één van de armste landen ter wereld is. In heel Tanzania...

Welcome to Africa

September 4, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
I was so caught up in preparing for my trip to South Africa that I completely forgot to drink up the moment. It was not until I sat on my eighteen hour Ethiopian Airlines flight that I finally realized how major this is. I was traveling to Africa for the second time; my first time being Morocco. More importantly, I was sharing this moment with one of my best friends. I missed this travel rush. I missed trying authentic ethnic foods, language barriers, and often the organized chaos I...

Fontenoy to Saint-Jean-de-Losne

September 1, 2014 - Saint-Jean-de-Losne, France
The south side of the canal des Vosges took us to the town of Corre where we caught up with some Swedish friends on board Honey Pie, a yacht which they are taking down to the Mediterranean and round to Rome. We then joined the petite Saone which is still a delight. It is the busiest waterway we have been on this year with many more hire boats than elsewhere, but we have some favourite ports and restaurants which we were able to visit and enjoy. The weather has been very good this year, but...

God is EVERYTHING!

August 29, 2014 - Mityana, Uganda
It’s been wonderful, confusing, frustrating, joyful homecoming back to Uganda. I’ve been able to spend some time in both Mityana as well as Jinja, visiting both the Walusimbi family and also all of the children at The Michelle and Julia Hoffman Memorial Children’s Home. It’s amazing to see what can take place in just a matter of four months. The changes, both good and bad, have really amazed me and for all of the things that continue to take place I have to just say that I’m in awe...

Reaching Hands

August 10, 2014 - Amery, Wisconsin, United States
As I sit here this Saturday night listening to the song “Prayer of the Children,” I can’t help but think about yet another journey to Uganda that awaits me in just 3 days. “Give me loving arms…..” I hear these voices in my head that I know are awaiting me…the giggles, the screams, the sheer joy of feeling loved…and I find myself thanking God for another opportunity to be doing his work across the world for so many children whom I now love not just because they’re His...

Sarreguemines to Fontenoy-le-Chateau

August 6, 2014 - Fontenoy-le-Château, France
The canal de la Sarre, which was originally built for the transport of coal, took us through some border towns and up to the level of the canal which joins the Rhine and the Marne (only theoretically, as the Arzviller lift which is essential to the journey is now broken down and not scheduled for repair!). The canal goes through some beautiful countryside, but is very little used by boaters except for German boats making their way to or from France. As we rejoined the Rhine/Marne canal we...

Worüber mache ich mir mehr Sorgen?

July 31, 2014
Jetzt habe ich mich seid April schon wieder nicht mehr gemeldet. Aber mein Alltag hier verändert sich auch nicht groß, vieles ist Routine geworden. Die Gruppen und ihre Teilnehmer kommen und gehen, ich darf viele tolle Menschen kennen lernen und viele habe ich auch ins Herz geschlossen. Jedes Mal das Gleiche zu schreiben, wird ja aber auch für euch langweilig. Daher heute mal etwas ganz Anderes, ein Thema, dass momentan in fast jeder zweiten e-mail Anfrage vorkommt, die ich bekomme - der...

July 28 2014 Brisbane - A Final Word

July 28, 2014 - Brisbane, Australia
    Well, well, well; Burns was right when he said 'the best-laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley' and our plans to finish the journal before we left Paris have finally been rounded off. And what? Only eight months after our return. My daily diary recorded the main points of our trip and Margaret and I have used that to complete the entries for several missing days, some days where we did very little and had not bothered to write an entry and some days where one or the other of us...
