My twenty year old son Lloyd has gone travelling again.
He came to me last year and said
I’m going overseas again next year. I’m tossing up between Mexico and South Africa.
Why’s that I said, couldn’t you think of anywhere in the world more dangerous.
So it’s off to South Africa. He’d be just about leaving Sydney now. When he went to Europe and the US he went alone but this time he’s going with a friend. A friend who has yet to go overseas without spending time in hospital. They will spend two weeks doing volunteer work in one of the conservation parks over there then they have two weeks just………………
That part all seems very disorganised to me. It seems to just involve going with the flow.
He has his great grandfathers travel bug. That’s Papa on the left, already has his camera out.
Those were the days, when people dressed to travel.
And to see them off.
Bon voyage to Lloyd. I’m throwing streamers in my mind to wish him a fantastic trip. Stay out of the path of any cranky hippo’s. I know we seem to have all the deadliest creatures here in Australia but at least most of them are small. If you see them in time you can smash them with a shoe or a shovel.
He’ll be 21 when he gets home.
