Kurt and I rented a 4×4 bakkie here in South Africa. This one has a camper on the back and we’ll be trying it out in Kruger National Park.

Kurt and I had to go through a 2 hour orientation to learn how to operate all aspects of our camper.

While I’m away, I chose some very special guest bloggers for this week. I ran out of time to put each post on this site, so except for one that wasn’t already posted elsewhere, I will be giving you a link for each, and I hope very much that you will take the time to read them.

I have read each one and they moved me, made me laugh, made me cry, or made me think (and we all know how hard it is for me to think.)

So please make sure you visit each blogger, *Like* or Comment, and if you have time, come back to let me know what you want more of the next time I go on vacation!!

In the meantime, as long as I don’t get eaten, trampled, or otherwise succumb to my own Darwinian prose (see previous blog) on this road trip, I’ll bring you plenty of posts from Kruger in a couple weeks!

Love, Marla

P.S. If you’re curious where I’ll be, here are the three camps we’ll be staying at (in no particular order, fyi, in case you’re stalking me):

Crocodile Bridge (I read about this one in that book All Things Wild and Wonderful that I told you about in June)

Oliphants (every time I see the word Oliphants I think of Lord of the Rings. Is it just me?)

Skukuza (This is the “big” main camp at Kruger. If you clicked the link, you might note that there aren’t as many “famous” animals here, but I’m kind of excited to see a “thick tailed bush baby”, whatever the heck that is.)
