It's actually written up to now, but I took a break choosing pics. It's really tiring after 4 hours.
I find it interesting that you write first and then add pics. I use the pics as the outline for the trip and to jog my memory and then I place words and paragraphs around them.

Wow Wow

Don't read this on a phone you'll be missing out.

A game reserve is something I really want to do, DW not so. Maybe when kids grow up I'll get there.

When was this trip?

Wow! What you did in 4 hours takes others several months to do.

I usually write up the day at the end of that day or the next day, so things are still fresh in my mind. For old trips like my Australia TR I did use the pics to remind me.

Thanks! It's just happened. I'm actually in Abu Dhabi still. Look at the wiki for an outline of the  rest.

I like to get it done quick just so my family can read it. And to be clear it's just the picture part that took four hours so far. The writing took a lot longer.

She's 4 months old.

Sorry, all the pics I took have us in them,  but Google should have a few. Pilanesberg is cheaper than Kruger and the game drives are included at least where I stayed. Most places were a lot more expensive  but this one was cheaper for some reason.
my wife also hates going to lounges to close to departure. I'm gonna start sending her to the gate without me. thanks for that idea
I walk with her to the gate then back to the lounge myself, just to clarify.

You're welcome. I'm glad you're enjoying.

wow wow wow
the animal you didn't remember looks like a female Kudu (distinctive lines)
Looks like you had an amazing time
I'm amazed how much milky stuff you managed to eat.....
We usually rave about the meat scene
If Kosher World is just giving you Feigels stuff couldn;t one just order directly from feigels?

That could be. I tried to write down all the animal names I didn't know, but I missed that one. I think ordering from Kosher World was cheaper. Some of the meals had price tags on them and they were all more than I paid. They probably have some sort of deal worked out.

thanks for the TR! looks awesome!!
Thanks!

WOW! Keep it coming
As soon as I have more time to chose the rest of the pics....Hopefully soon.
