Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Great pictures and report. The title "African Queen" - it only took you two weeks to take control of the continent!!!!!!

What an awesome new friend you made!

Sarah said...

Hi,
This sounds like such an amazing adventure!

Karen said...

I think you would be able to make friends easily anywhere you went. That you met this fabulous lady was so wonderful, for both of you.

WOW!! I dont know where to begin commenting on all this Gaelyn. You really WERE sneaky with the photographs weren't you? LOL!! I said one or two not dozens. LOL!!

My dear friend, it was such a pleasure to have you here and show you around. I knew before you came that we would be good travel companions and hit it off as we did.

I am pleased I was there at the begining of your trip to guide you on your way and wish I could have spent longer with you. I look forward to seeing you again next year.

PS. Maybe I should have cut my nails before this trip? LOL!!

Mike: I believe you but you COULD have tried to stop her. :)

What a lovely adventure you had. How fortunate that you had such a wonderful guide and traveling companion. I am looking forward to seeing and reading about your incredible journey.

Diane AZ said...

Sounds like you had a blast in South Africa and Joan is a wonderful guide and friend. I love the images the chameleon, the Emerald Schaffer and of Joan getting close-ups of bugs!

An amazing adventure for certain, and a magical meeting of the best of all kinds. Welcome home, Gaelyn. Thank you for taking care of her, Joan, and it's so nice to meet you!

Very neat, and welcome back!

Carolyn Ford said...

Aren't international friends GREAT! I have them from Korea and Japan! They enrich my life so much...Joan appears to be a real trooper, just like you. What an adventure...I can't wait to see more!

Esther Garvi said...

The sights and the tastes!!! Mmmmm... you have me dreaming now, and counting the days til I go back home to Africa!! Hopefully, it won't be long now!

Carolyn said...

Such a lovely tribute to your new friend Gaelyn and such a wonderful collection of pics. I love the cameleon and can't believe anyone can have such beautiful nails while camping!!!!!
Love forward to seeing more of your trip. Have a great weekend.
Smiles and blessings

Wow great post. I have enjoyed Joan's blog many times and must get there more often. Now I will follow along with yours. Very enjoyable and this must have been a great trip.

Hello Gaelyn (if I may call you that)! I came by you blog via Joan's and I'm pleased I did! You have taken some breath-taking photos of the country in which I have lived for fourteen years. I haven't even been to some of the places you had visited! I hope you had a wonderful experience in the "Rainbow Nation" :o)

Callie said...

So glad you had a great friend and companion to show and share the wonders of your trip.

RuthieJ said...

How fortunate that you had Joan as a travel companion.
The little chameleon is SO cute!

Barb said...

Gaelyn,
I've enjoyed your travels and these photos are super. So much green!

Evelyn Howard said...

Wonderful pics.

Craver Vii said...

I love the way Joan gets into taking those pics! She's a remarkable lady. (She would be a miracle worker if she got me up before 5AM though.)

Firefly said...

I don't think you could have had somebody better for the first part of your holiday. Joan showed you so much more than you would have been able to see and find if you were travelling on your own.

Rambling Woods said...

You and Joan really ARE sisters of nature...I am so happy for you both...

Glad you had such a fantastic trip Gaelyn! Awesome photos and a nice tribute to your awesome guide.
