Really enjoyed stumbling upon this blog, thanks for sharing your photos. Africa never leaves you, but it sure feels like I’m a long way from home today. These pics really brightened my day 🙂
Thant you, Michelle! Where did you live in Africa?
Hi Cheryl, I was born and brought up in Malawi. My parents still live and work out there so I still have strong ties to Malawi, but despite being in the UK for over 15 years now I still feel homesick! your photos are a lovely reminder, thank you Mx
I hope you get to visit them occasionally. Thanks for the kind words about my photographs.
We’re enjoying your daily elephant posts!
