AndreaScheffler's Travel Journals


What was the saddest moment you have ever seen in your travels?

Probably those naggy bonerack horses tied up to a post in a flooded field in Punta Cana.

The Mozambique Experience

My one-sto-shop for relaying what I'm up to and the cool things I am seeing down in Tofo Beach!

 a big heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me so far 

Not too much to say yet - I am just in the final few days before this trip to Africa. I booked this way back in the spring and can't believe how fast time went by! I think I am ready... I know a lot of you are old hat at this kind of travel but it's sort of a big huge first for me so I must say, a few butterflies, a lot of excitement, zero regrets. I'll be tossing a few tidbits of my journey on this thing as I go along - I will be trying to NOT spend much time on computers (time to unplug and enjoy real life for once) but once or twice a week I'm hoping to just plunk on a quick update and a photo or two.

I also wanted to extend a big heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me so far - donating to the Foundation for the Protection of Marine Megafauna, donating school and art supplies for the local kids, lending me travel advice and actually being interested in what I'm doing. I hope to meet lots of people and cool animals while I'm down there, learn a lot about diving, whale sharks, manta rays, sea turtles and other local aquafauna, see some AMAZING new birds (eee!), horseback ride on the beach, hopefully get to fling over to Kruger Park or something and see some lions and rhinos and zebras OH MY. And I'm actually really looking forward to my scant 5 or 6 hours in London on the way home to have a big greasy breakfast, look at some holiday displays, find me some British quiz show star, go on a little boat ride, who knows what else.

So, back to the prep for me for now. I shall report back!
