I’m back from my trip riding through the Mashatu Reserve in Southeast Botswana. It was one of the most amazing adventures I’ve ever experienced.
I’m always happy to get home after traveling and I’m especially happy that I made it home in time to enjoy the early blooming roses that have overtaken the courtyard. I tucked some into this beautiful basket I bought from the woman who made it in one of the few villages in the reserve.
But I miss my horse, General, after riding together for 8 days in a row we became very attached.
I miss listening to the lions, hyenas and birds from my cozy cot at night;
I miss my gracious and accomplished girlfriends with whom I completed the 100 + mile trek and the red sand soil covered with wildflowers that we cantered through.
I miss the rock formations; the animals: elephants, giraffes, cats, zebra, hyenas, jackals and more that we encountered
and the smell of wild sage.
I’m still unpacking, editing photos and “getting back in the saddle” here at home, but I can’t wait to share more of the highlights from
with you very soon.
I am also very pleased to be back in touch with you and hope that this post finds you to be very happy and healthy.
