Holidays in the Bush
Guests often ask me what I miss most about home. We spend nearly 10 months of every year living in the bush. And don’t get me wrong; waking up to elephants and watching buffalo herds on the plains from our office is surreal and inspiring, and something that I never tire of.
But before I moved away from home I was a very family oriented person. I had family dinners at least once a week; I was a travelling ice hockey sister who rarely missed a game or tournament. Even now I try to talk to my family everyday ideally, but I rarely let an entire week go by without checking in.
So when the holidays roll around I miss carving pumpkins; stuffing the turkey and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade; picking the perfect Christmas tree and pricking my fingers for hours trying to string the lights just right.
Karin – and everyone here really – has indulged my longing to nest and decorate, and so after weeks of cutting, sewing and spray painting, and a few funny looks provoked by my enthusiasm for Halloween, the decorations have started to go up! Here’s just a taster of the beginnings, but check back later this week for more pictures from our Beho Beho Halloween!
As our lounge morphs into the bat cave, I’d like to wish you all a Happy Halloween! Stay safe, and enjoy the festivities!!
