I’ve seen and experienced so much this year! I brought 2019 in in beautiful Pench, shivering in the cold and rejoicing in the sight of a jackal and a leopard amongst so many other wonderful wild animals.
And finally, we ended the year in Europe, which I visited after seven years. I’ve written extensively about other visits; this one was special in its own way.
On the flight to Paris, someone sitting next to me told me about a friend who hadn’t been able to see anything – not even the Eiffel Tower – because of the train strikes in France. Thanks to our wonderful, wonderful French friends, we saw more than our hearts desired! We walked down tiny streets, ate pain au chocolat at little cafés and spent Christmas with family. What more could I want?
I’ll write in detail about all our happy experiences there, but for the moment, the collage gives you a glimpse of the year that went by. Let’s see what 2020 has in store for us!
