My blog is a little over two months old now. I initially started ‘Our life in Kruger’, because I wanted to write down our stories for our children. They might choose not to live in the bush when they grow up or maybe not even in South Africa. Who knows what their future holds. But this way, they can read our stories when they are older, look back and realize their childhood was quite extraordinary.
But starting my blog has done a few unexpected great things for me as well. It has been a wonderful trip down memory lane writing everything down. It is strange how quickly you tend to forget and how you start to take things for granted; things that once were fascinating every day. I realise now that I have been extremely preoccupied with motherhood. So preoccupied that I forgot to notice and appreciate this beautiful and special place we are fortunate to call home.
I never expected such an overwhelming response when I first asked on the Best Place on Earth group if I should start a blog. The responses were pouring in! Then after I started ‘Our life in Kruger’ and read the lovely comments of our readers, I began to see my surroundings through their eyes again. And that has made me value the life we live here in Kruger so much more!
I have written a little bit about how life in Letaba has been great but also quite lonely at times in the blog ‘Farewell Letaba’. When I was a cabin attendant, I would meet new people every day! That is one of the things I have missed most after I moved here. But through this blog, I am connecting to people again; people that love Kruger as much as I do. I even got to meet a fellow blogger and a few of the people that follow ‘Our life in Kruger’. It has been such a positive change in my life!
So for that, I would like to thank all the people that take the time to read my blog. And that make the effort to comment: Thank you, I appreciate you all!
