Now that we are home we get together often, and our biggest topics of conversation are always… How will we ever beat the trip to lion sands? What city can ever compare to Cape Town? Will we eat food as magnificent as at The Test Kitchen? When will we go back?
We are all still somewhat dumbfounded by our experiences in South Africa, as well as saddened by the fact that it is already a memory. We look back at it with a strange and sad longing. It seems that just about every animal imaginable came out to greet us. And all the people… they were wonderful and helpful and interesting.
And lastly, our luxury trip ended up being extremely inexpensive compared to what it would have cost us to visit the Orient or Europe. And so much better in so many ways.
Personally, I could die tomorrow knowing that I took the most wonderful of trips. It was a life-changing experience, and you and Sam had so much to do with it.”
